I don't trust the AE springs because most AE drivers I talk to, around my area, are running Yok springs on the rear and Kyosho on the front.

I just picked up a set of Yok springs myself to try.

How is the quality of the diff balls in this kit? Are the balls carbide?

Thanks for confirming. I'll see if I go that route of just buy an identically equipped CA when the need calls for it.

The Exotek part is pretty nice. Goes together without much fuss and is quiet. I like mine. On a tight indoor clay track I run a 69/32-33. Works well.

Ditto in my area on carpet/turf - the Yoke Yatabe springs are the spring of choice on most cars now whether it's actually a Yokomo car or not.

The DT version is a beast outside on medium to low grip. Made a few changes from the stock settings, man it's fast. 30 degree front block and 0 degree insert....I run 3mm Ackerman and most aggressive setting on the CF knuckle plate.... 2 degree anti squat and 0.5 hubs.

How much weight you have in the car? A shorty or full pack?

The only options on the YZ-2 are shorty or saddle/square packs. No room for a normal full size lipo.
