Shin, Lee, Marc, Carson, and others running a new 3 gear tranny on their YZ-2's at the Reedy Race. Looking forward to seeing how they do on the medium bite clay at OCRC and see some results.

YOu think these will be available for purchase sometime in the near future?

I'm running the JConcepts Silencer on mine. I just added some socket headed screws with body clip holes to the rear side brace to retain it, velcro in the front.

I like this body over the stock Bmax2 body since the cab forward gives me more steering.

The stock yz2 body will also work with some dremel time.

If you look closely, it's a "stand-up" 3-gear. Possibly an adapted Bmax2 RM box. As anyone who has raced these against the B5ML on carpet/turf can tell you, that would not be ideal in the overall scheme of the rest of the car - the laydown 4-gear carries so much more cornerspeed.

That being said, for the real eagle-eyed, there's a plastic front shock tower on Lee's car in this pic - probably to make the car more forgiving on dirt:

In other words, you're probably not looking at at a YZ-2 II but rather looking at is a "YZ-2USD" - I just made that name up for US dirt-spec but feel free to use it Yokomo...

Finally, for one more observation, they're running the alum shock caps - something they rarely, if ever, do on carpet/turf.

I'm curious as to how you guys are running your motor wires. I was going to run them over the batt, but came up with this approach with shrinkwrap on the side. Thanks.

Down the side of the battery like that is how many do it and is very clean.

It's also the convenience of not having them in the way for insertion and removal of the battery.

I did both mine and my wife's YZ2 this way:

Also note on Shin's car that the body has a larger bulge on the left side where the Spur Gear is....

Should say, on the left side of the picture = right aft of the car. You can see the gear cover a la 3 gear stand up box.

Wow. You guys use some serious wire! Is that 10 gauge, or is the insulation just large? I'm using 12. Can't wait to get this car on the carpet!

Upright looks pretty cool. Looks like you would use spacers/washers to create the roll center changes inboard/outboard for camber link length instead of an upright with multiple holes. If it was all aluminum, ok. If its plastic, I'd be scared of those "ears" breaking off

The Blue is 13AWG the Purple stuff is 14AWG.

Just looks thicker in the pics. 14 works perfectly fine for 1/10 but the best is 12-13 and 13 is the perfect happy medium. 10 is too much and likely is adding resistance to the system, but not all that much.
