Drift Talk: Your dream chassis?
Today I want to talk about your dream chassis, that chassis you always wanted to own. We have written some stuff recently that has divided opinion a little which we like as it gets people talking, today though is about being mushy and sentimental.
For me it wasn’t a specific chassis that I dreamed about originally it was more a brand, anything by that brand would do. Like most people I got in to the hobby watching YouTube videos and one brand always stood out and that was Yokomo. I was a budget drifter using the usual TT-01 followed by a TA-05 and finally a Sprint 2 but I had always wanted a Yokomo chassis. In late 2012 I landed a job in the hobby and it wasn’t long after that I was sent some info on the Yokomo DIB, it was love at first site.
I was lucky enough to get my hands on one a few months later, I remember the day it arrived being like an excited kid at Christmas. I know the DIB is not everyone’s cup of tea but for me personally I love the chassis, I have had it for 4 years now and many other models have come and gone in that time but the DIB will always be my favourite.
It has changed a lot over the years it started life as a humble version one DIB it now has all 3 upgrade packs on it, runs 1.8 CS and drifts beautifully. It doesn’t see much of the track these days as it is semi-retired since I purchased the Yokomo YD-2 late last year and started to focus on RWD. For me Yokomo are still the best brand around, they are easy to set up and do the job straight out the box.
So people, let us know what your dream chassis is or was, do you own it now? Did it live up to your expectations?
