Wrap-Up Next KENBRO CONCEPT debut!

Wrap-Up Next KENBRO CONCEPT debut! 0

Wrap-Up Next have announced a new conversion kit few days ago, named KENBRO CONCEPT. Designed by the representative of IROHA Works, Mr. Ken Baku 研風呂.

KENBRO CONCEPT, adopted from the idea of combining Wrap-Up Next FR-D and MR-D, a new vertical rear mid motor chassis is born. The new design have been testing at the home track of IROHA Works, one of the best track in Japan. The new design has high turning/switching speed and excellent controllability thanks to the vertically mounted motor position while also maintaining optimal weight balancing for lateral anti-torque chassis on both high and low traction surfaces.

The main chassis is 2.0mm thick with moderate flexibility, and the upper deck adopts a split type 2.0mm thick pure carbon. The roll rigidity can be changed by rearrangement of the post of the upper deck connection corresponds to the various of track surface.

Wrap-Up Next is releasing three packages for KENBRO CONCEPT.

Wrap-Up Next Dual Composite Rear Shock Tower

Wrap-Up Next Dual Composite Rear Shock Tower 0

Earlier this year Wrap-Up Next released Dual Composite Rear Shock Tower for Yokomo YD-2 (Part Numbers: 0296-FD, 0297-FD, 0298-FD, and 0299-FD). It's unique detachable structure of the carbon and alum. design allows you to setup your shocks height and position more specifically for your needs.

In August, they announced a new version for Yokomo Drift Package based chassis which can also be used on FR-D, MR-D and NERVIS (Part Numbers: 0331-FD, 0332-FD, 0333-FD, 0334-FD), images shown below. Available early September 2017.

In addition, you can also change the detachable carbon piece to a different type, that allows you to accomplish different shock setup.

0327-FD Type-S Spare Shock Tower

(available early September 2017)

0328-FD Type-L Spare Shock Tower

Wrap-Up Next High Traction Rear Universal Shaft

Wrap-Up Next High Traction Rear Universal Shaft 0

Wrap-Up Next High Traction Rear Universal Shaft

Developed exclusively for the rear of RWD drift. Debut on a new concept specialized for drivability.

For the conventional universal shaft which has pursued the break angle and driving efficiency, it is a special specification for RWD drift which gives top priority to traction, operation feeling (drivability) which is a large element of drift. Lineup of 6mm axle model of drip parking system and 5mm axle model of DIB / DRB system

Length adjustment mechanism (Adjustable specification)

6 mm width optimized on the basis of the current drift model (with tread
Adjustable mechanism that can adjust the length of 12 mm width). double
It holds the dog bone strongly with the lock structure.

Improvement of power control ability generated by unequal speed rotation
By bringing the cross spider axis closer to the differential side, easy attachment induces unequal speed rotation. Intentional partial throttle, enhancing traction and power controllability.

As a back technique, the installation of the dog bone is rotated 90 degrees (completely unequal speed) and the unequal speed will be greatly increased. If the angles of the universal are parallel, they will rotate at the same speed.

Weight rearing produces rear weight & counter torque effect
Approximately 2.5g (5g left and right) weight up compared with conventional shaft. 5g of the anti-torque effect is enhanced by weight effect and rotation of the unit.

0287-FD High Traction Rear Universal Shaft (5 mm axle / length adjustment mechanism) for DIB/DRB system

0288-FD High Traction Rear Universal Shaft (6 mm axle / length adjustment mechanism) for Drift Package system

Wrap-Up Next All New Version of VX Suspension

Wrap-Up Next All New Version of VX Suspension 0

The 3rd version of VX suspension system!

Switching the ratio 1:1 shock mount and asymmetrical design knuckle allows you to mount the shock onto the suspension arm as the standard setting. The partitioning structure makes the suspension arm adjustable and multiple suspension pin attachments allows the most appropriate setting for your chassis, including the short suspension arm position.

The newly designed knuckles are usable for both 1060 bearings (Drift Package standard) and 1050(3mm width) bearings. Compatible with 5mm and 6mm diameter universal drive shafts.  Please note that using 6mm universal drive shaft will create some gaps on the sides. Gaps will be eliminated with the stainless shim set, which is also available for purchase.

Newly designed asymmetrical knuckles!

Reconsidered the positioning of service holes next to the knuckles to have the most appropriate accessary brake calipers attachment.

Reversing the knuckles makes wide range of settings possible. 2 positioning options of shock mounting (lever ratio 1:1 or standard)

The suspension mount axle is POM resin bush. Keep them fresh with periodic replacements. Bushes are replaceable with 2.5mm and 3mm according to the chassis type. The spare parts will also be available.
