Let’s check out it now!
Back with another installment of another great product that’s affordable yet providing the customer with the kind of performance that would help you better your skills, better your car and have lots of fun
The latest release of dampers from Yeah Racing are these fantastic aluminum big bore adjustable dampers featuring an on-the-fly quick tuning system. The concept itself is not new… With nitro racers back in the day having used this type of system, however, it is the first time (that I know of) where it’s being applied to the drift cars.
The packaging is well designed with a clear ‘window’ to give you an idea of what’s inside. The labeling is nice and large, peaking your curiosity. At the back is a cutaway perspective drawing showing the inner workings and labeling the different parts which are cool.
In the box, you will find all the components you would expect from a set of dampers however you will also find an extra set of harder springs and the quick tuning set of pistons. They also include ball end studs for you to use or change over to, if you so wish, which for me was a relief. The instructions contained within the box indicate that you are given, 2 types of quick tining pistons as well the normal fixed hole pistons we are used to. To me thats a fantastic deal already!
Above are the two quick tuning piston systems. The one on the top is the 4 level and bottom, the 6 level. Please take note of the holes on the pistons. Care must be taken to ensure that you use the correct pistons together else the system will not work. At first, I did not read the instructions carefully and the system would not work. So I had to re-read, re-check then got it right.
Another point to note is that the top of the shaft, where the pistons goe, has a flat surface to it. The piston hole as well also has this flat section. Make sure it’s lined up. If you don’t, you will force the pistons on and will damage the center hole and the system will not work. You will then need to get another set of those pistons, so please please make sure it correctly lined up.
After assembling your dampers make sure that it works. Pull down slowly yet firmly on the shaft and turn it till you feel it lock in to place. Once locked in turn the shaft left or right for hardness and softness. You should feel the ‘click’ done be alarmed if it only clicks 5 times as it already starts off at 1. Once that is checked, then add in the oil and finish off the dampers in the regular fashion. Here I used the DS Racing Rwd oil I already just to see the effect. After this test, I will use the YR oil that’s bundled with the dampers to see how they work.
And voila!! An affordable aluminum damper set combining efficient tuning capabilities that don’t dent your pocket! I will give feedback on these once I run these on my chassis at the track. For the price, you pay you to get a whole lot more than you would expect and the quality is really good. I did find the shaft having a slight lateral play but not so much that it would affect the performance. The instructions aren’t very clear of hand and you need to read it carefully, pay attention to the way you need to install the pistons as well and you will be fine. Overall a lot of thought has gone into developing this system and it shows.
