Yokomo Drift Package DPR & Imadoki Alpha kits

Yokomo Drift Package DPR & Amadoki Alpha kits

Yokomo introduce two new drift car kits in the form of the Drift Package DPR and the Imadoki Alpha. Starting with the Drift Package DPR, the kit offers a new suspension and steering design, with the front-end, the most important aspect in drifting, has been re-engineered to adapt with the front driving style which is becoming popular among today’s drifters. High steering angles can be achieved with the wide-pivot long wiper arm and aluminium upper and lower A-arms. The narrow-scrub type steering block gives a more linear response and the suspension fine-tuning can be made by adjusting the roll centre and camber setting while the precision aluminium motor mount allows low-geared settings.
