Orange Yatabe? If so, that's really stiff compared to what I've seen people run (Xray, AE Laydown, Tlr). Then again laydown is a new thing here. How do you feel this changes the feel of the buggy?

you should not use the yatabe springs for dirt; they were made for astroturf running. Just run the all-round yokomo springs for that!

In fact the kit spring on the DT worked great for us, not only on a blown out clay track, but also on wet astro!

Thanks

Anybody know if the new rear hub/axle kit is out yet in the US? I believe the part number is Z2-415RS. I did a search on AMain and did not have any luck.

Amain typically gets stuff quite a bit later than the Euro and Japanese shops. They are the Yokomo distributor for the U.S. so they would have them first here in the States. Answer at this point is almost surely a no.

Fellow Yoke driver here in Oregon ordered from Mibo sport and i think he said his bill was like 125 shipped, but they were the only folk who had it. Shipping alone was $25, but when you "gotta have it". He often orders from the UK and JP since certain parts just won't be available here, or as others have pointed out, might be months delayed.

Standard orange, not the Yatabe

I have the complete set of Avid springs I bought for my B4 a couple years ago and I generally alternate between the 2 softest springs when conditions are bit loose and go up one for when grip is solid.

Default YZ-2 DT with Lunsford Super Duty Turnbuckles

Not sure if topic has been covered. Need help getting proper turnbuckle and ball stud sizes for Lunsford upgrades, as the site doesn't have a specific package for the YZ-2. Has anyone installed Lunsford Super Duty turnbuckles on their DT? I've read articles with these upgrades, but no one mentions the exact sizes to get, along with ball stud sizes in the 4.8mm ball size. Thanks in advance!

I my lay down Yz2 I used B5m ball studs and turn buckle end on all locations but the outer tie rod "they hit the wheel".

I bought a Lunsford tie rod set <b5m> and used them for the front camber links.

So far on my DT I think mine are the stock Yokomo.

Unless you're looking for bling, stock stuff is more than adequate.
