Upcoming Review – Yokomo MR4 Drift Chassis

Almost every RC drifter will have heard of the the MR4 chassis from Yokomo, and as it’s belt driven some will prefer to a Shafty like the Tamiya TT-01.

However, the purpose of getting this chassis is to make an almost direct comparison with Belt Drive and Shaft Driven – what are the advantages and disadvantages of each and how much do they cost to run are some questions you’ll find answered.

In order to do this, both cars will be set up with exactly the same component and final gearing (time for a calculator….) and then tested side by side whilst being filmed – in true battle drift style! I’ll then post the results up with pics and videos

Just as a side note, the Yokomo MR4 was bought for £35 ( $65) off eBay and comes with a new RX7 body shell, motor and servo – that’s a cheap entry point to drifting!

Here’s some pics of what’s on it’s way;
