Amain actually isn't the issue. They're doing everything the can to assure we have the parts we all need and want. FYI

How's everyone liking their ball diffs? I own 2 xray xb2's, and am installing the yokomo ball diff in one of them. For the mod, we use the xray gear but the rest yokomo with a yokomo 65mm dogbone. Xray's outdrives wear fast and are $30 per side! Hope the yokomo diff is a nice one

I have to say the Yokomo ball diff is even better than Kyosho. The diff gear has a groove molded into it in line with the diff balls to keep the grease in place. And the thrust bearing screw had a large diameter head with a o-ring around it to keep out dirt. After three race days, two on very sandy soil, it is still buttery smooth.

Default Z2-415RS Questions

All,

I am interested in purchasing the recently released Z2-415RS aluminum rear hub / axle kit (66.5mm dog bone) and am confused. If we get this kit, is the only other requirement to run the Z4-008RS4 or Z4-008RL5 rear suspension arms?

It appears that if we want to continue the using the rear arms Z2-008R that came in the DT kit, we need to use an old B-MAX4 axle BM-10RAC (currently discontinued) and a 65mm dog bone Z2-01050B. I don't see the logic behind using this combination as the parts are not all available.

What are the differences between these rear arms?

Z4-008RS4
Z4-008RL5 (I believe this arm is +1mm wider for high bite conditions)
Z2-008R


Please let me know if i am missing something here. Apologies as this is my first Yokomo car. It seems like the Japanese cars (from my experience with Kyosho), allow the use of parts from other cars for added benefits/tuning options.


Thanks!

Sounds like a mailman issue not Amain. I have never had a package lost. Order easily 20 or more times a year.

What is the optimal anti-squat setting for the CE for rear traction rounding tight corners on power (just getting back on gas mid corner). Several theories on this but what actually works with the laydowns? thx all

2-3 is ideal in most cases. The more bite you have the less anti squat you need.

My local track is switching over to turf from dirt, that makes 3 tracks within 45 minutes of me now running indoor turf. Rather than pick up a B6 I'm probably going to get a YZ2. Does anyone have a starting setup to use for turf that they could share with me? How's the kit setup work on turf? Are there any parts that need to be replaced/upgraded?

I plan to read through this thread I just want to get a starting point for a setup as I plan to get the car in the next week or so and it would take me longer to read this thread before I get the car.

Thanks

Stock setup is decent. I recommend adding some weight under the battery getting red front springs and running a 19mm ride height. Gullwing front arms and gullwing shock tower are a must! I run 2 toe in vs the box's recommended 2.5 what turn motor are you gonna run? If you find the car needing more steering I can give ya a few tips on that.
