Drift Talk: Issue 3 & bad ass bodyshells

Drift Talk: Issue 3 & bad ass bodyshells

Issue 3 dropped last night and is going well, content wise we feel this is our most diverse issue yet. One of the sections we did was bad ass bodyshells, we could have filled pages with what was sent in but we couldn’t do that due to the size of the mag. The top 5 were awesome and we have soon great pics of them that didn’t make the mag so we thought we would dedicate a blog to each one.

We will start with the main image Mike Peezee’s Tandem of Die replica S13 with custom double stack intercooler, handmade piping, BOV, and realistic fender/corner light tabs & front bash bar the shell is stunning we will let the pics do the talking.

We had such a good response to this feature we are going to run it in each issue, so if you think you have a cool enough build get in touch maybe you will feature in issue 4. You can send your pics to us via Facebook or email them to yokomukirc@hotmail.com

This will be the last blog from me for a couple of weeks as I am off to get married but if you want to contribute blogs or content for the mag I will be picking up messages when I can and the other guys in the team will be on hand if I’m not.

Let us know what you think of issue 3, we would love to hear some feedback.

You can download issue 3 here

Issue 3 preview

Issue 3 preview

Issue 3 lands tomorrow, this is by far our favourite issue so far here is a preview of what you can expect in issue 3.

We have a great feature from Dale Clements about how RC drifting helped him deal with mental health issues. We have the first ever Muki on tour feature from WRCC, we catch up with Michel van den Hoogenband and find out some of the history behind the world championships. Bob Rock gives us an insight in to RC drifting in South Africa and how the hobby is developing over there. B-Money imparts yet more wisdom on us and we feature some bad ass bodyshells.

We had a lot of content sent through this time so if you submitted something and it is not in issue 3 rest assured you will be seeing it in issue 4.

If you would like to contribute to future issues or have your track/team featured please contact us via Facebook or email us at yokomukirc@hotmail.com

Check out issues 1&2 here

Cheers

Drift Talk: Who are Yokomuki RC

Who are Yokomuki RC

We have talked about all sorts on the site and Facebook recently I would like to take a minute to talk about Yokomuki RC. It has been a wonderful start to the year for us and I wanted to just put a little more out there about this year and this team.

Some history behind Yokomuki RC

I (Matt Ellis) started Yokomuki RC back in December 2014, I wanted to create a page which focussed on sharing information about RC drifting and highlighting the good work people do in the hobby. I never really intended for it to become a team that just sort of happened naturally over time.

Over the last 2 and a bit years we have built a steady following on social media and gained a lot of experience. However up till sort of October last year we still had no real direction about where we were going in terms of our original goal of being a respected source of information. So November last year we discussed the idea of a magazine.

The One/Ten Drift E-zine

By the end of November last year we had started the ball rolling with the magazine what better way to get information across than in a free to download magazine, well at least that’s what we thought anyway. As it turned out not many people wanted to get involved initially and we totally understood that, so we created issue one full of our own content.

The initial response was very good, we had a steady stream of downloads, the response was positive enough that we decided to make a second issue and content for that came a lot easier in fact we had to much so we already knew that we would at least get 3 issues before people got bored. Issue 2 went down well we had more downloads in the first day than issue 1 got in 2 months. Issue 3 is almost ready to launch and issue 4 is already underway with content coming in all the time.

Blogging

I dabbled with blogs a little since the page started but to be honest I think they were pretty rubbish and focussed pretty much on the stuff the team was getting up to so I don’t think many people bothered with them. This year we re-launched the drift talk series and have tried to create blogs that offer advice or opinions on stuff going on in the drift world, they have had a much better response and we are now looking for guest bloggers. We have even been asked to submit future blogs to RC Mart and have been featured on their blog site.

Sponsorship

We have been fortunate to pick up 3 fantastic sponsors this year Usukani, Sideways RC (SRC) and Asbo-RC three great companies and we will work our socks off to help promote them. Usukani are providing the team with their fantastic brand of upgrades and Sideways RC will be keeping our bodyshells looking as scale realistic as possible, we have been working with Asbo for the last few month helping each other with various aspects of promotion and the support Dale gives us is fantastic.

We want to work hard for our sponsors it’s not about how many freebies we can bag, it’s about boosting their profile and exposure which in turn will help improve ours but freebies are nice to don’t get me wrong. It is all about how we can work together and make things mutually beneficial.

Finally the team

As I said earlier in the blog before I started to ramble I never set out to create a team it has developed over time but it is something I am tremendously proud of now, we are more than team mates (this is where I go all Dom from Fast & Furious) we are family, they are a great bunch and you can find out more about them over on the website.

Thank you for all your support keep your eyes open for issue 3 and more blogs coming soon.
