Yz-2 kit arms






Bmax4 rear arms


Bmax4 rear arms are 2mm longer pivot to pivot. Surely that equates to 4mm overall width increase?

Thanks for the information. I noticed the extra 4mm has helped me.

I have to agree with Hacker...just measured mine and the difference is 2mm per arm, therefore 4mm overall

My calipers. Lie. Every once in a while. When the battery moves in and out intermittently and changes to. S,A,E, or 5mm turns into 50mm. I try to keep it honest. Most of the time.

http://www.amainhobbies.com/rc-cars-...4-011r/p270475, I would imagine, it will be able to be used for both since they are both 12mm hexes, why wouldn't it work?

Gonna give the new battery brace a whirl today as well.

Cool thanks. Have it in my cart on Amain but I was just a little unsure that it would work on the front.
