RDRP YZ-4 SF aluminium fan mount


Coming from Revolution Design Racing Products is an aluminium fan mount for the Yokomo YZ-4 SF. The part is machined from aircraft-grade 7075-T6 aluminium and attaches directly to the centre spline of the chassis by using an already existing mounting point. The mount is designed for 30mm fan units that are held in place with much greater reliability compared to just using double-sided tape while also adding visual impact and cool factory looks. The black anodised item comes laser-etched to show off the driver’s passion for everything RDRP and it only adds minimal weight.
