Made for the popular Yokomo BD8 touring cars is Rebellion-RC’s new carbon fibre conversion kit. Designed to fit both the 2018 and 2017 vehicles, the set contains a new carbon fibre chassis whose special design with milled pockets for additional silicone cushions allows for optimised flex characteristics while retaining a low centre of gravity. Also part of the package are reduced thickness 3.0mm front and rear shock towers – doing away with the standard 3.5mm items. The parts are of a plain design without countersunk holes which is known to improve overall stability. Next up is an updated upper bumper plate for improved crash resistance and better main chassis protection while the upper top decks are available in three different designs and in 2.5mm, 2.2mm, 2mm or 1.5mm thickness. All items are also available separately, they are CNC-machined from highest quality carbon fibre and they come in a total of twelve different colours. All parts fit both the 2018 and 2017 model, however due to the updates Yokomo made between the two model years the motor mount sits in the “2018 position” when using the chassis in the older 2017 specification kit.
