I've always been a fan of the VIP drifter, A JZX100 with 800hp 2JZ is always insane. In the RC world although the short wheelbase, makes them look wrong. So now Yokomo has developed the means, something bigger is coming. 275mm!
This Chaser is Due in March. Pity it's not a Mark II, but hey, still a JZX.
This will be my last chassis for a long long long long while.
I am more than satisfied with the capabilities of my current chassis.The Drift Package SSG 2.0 is brutal. The de-anodized DRB 1.5 is elegant but this will provide some flexibility in my lineup.
I have a bunch of parts left over from my DRB that aren't doing anything.
Alloy 1.5CS rear drive axle.
Alloy rear hubs 0.5 or 0.0 toe
Kazama adjustable width front hubs
Alloy front 7 deg lower block etc etc etc etc and many de-anodized parts.
I've received my DIB 275mm conversion chassis set and waiting for my main chassis set to arrive.
I've reserved a GOODYEAR Racing Kunny'z CHASER 275mm body that's due in March and I have plans to add one of my .RSG. designed liveries on this bad boy.
So while I wait until March, I can slowly piece together a good package that will include the above items and a few upgrades.
Yokomo has just released the Long chassis parts updates for the DIB chassis so it's a great time to start.
Here are the results of my research so far.
The chassis itself is 19mm longer than stock so I need the belts and FCD that will fit the best.
Here are the conversions.
DIB 275mm Long Chassis
CS 1.0 Normal 173T
CS 1.3 167T
CS 1.5 165T for my 1.5 FCD
CS 1.8 162T
CS 2.0 161T is my target
CS 1.0 Normal 160T
CS 1.3 154T 462mm
CS 1.5 152T 456mm
CS 1.8 149T 447mm
CS 2.0 148T 444mm
for others out there, If you get a CS 2.0 kit for the DIB, it should work with your original normal belt and the tensioners set to max.
Unfortuantely, I have a bunch of belts for DRB. but DRB belts won't fit.
CS 1.0 Normal 184T
CS 1.3 178T 534mm
CS 1.5 176T 528mm
CS 1.8 172T 516mm
CS 2.0 172T 516mm
The slow build has started... but it will take a LONG time to build this LONG wheelbase.
