RE-Xtreme Tsunami LiPo Power

What is Tsunami Power? There's a story, so read on.

Recently Yokomo released the 2800 30c 7.4 V lipo in a small case for the GT500 1/12 cars. It hasn't taken long for the drift community to go for these in a big way.

The DRB is the main recipient with a small size batter holder developed specifically to get the weight lighter and more central.

As you can see, it's much smaller and almost rivals any central battery chassis setup.

Power is still 7.4V with punch and the lighter weight has made the RE-DRB a different machine. But there's only one problem. YELLOW! I didn't want the chassis to be overpowered by this battery pack.

So I gave it a little redesign. the chrome sticker came out better than expected.

As good as a factory finish. It looks great in the chassis.

 Now the yellow is gone. I feel at ease and the RE-DRB is again Phase 2 is complete.

Phase 3 will be the perfection of minor details, such as the niggling front steering issues and suspension shims.
