Not only does it include silver graphite chassis plates and a silver anodized motor mount, it also includes silver graphite damper stays, silver anodized hubs and bulkheads, a solid axle, and countersteer pulleys. Looks pretty sharp if you ask me:

Yokomo must have surprised quite a few people when they posted this teaser pic of a new drift chassis on their website last weekend. Following Tamiya's lead, Yokomo is jumping on the "front midship motor, belt driven" bandwagon. Codenamed the DRB, this new chassis is due out in August.
