Thanks for the help. Probably will run an 8.5.

How's everyone liking the Dirt car. Not many comments here on it. Also, haven't seen one for sale used here. Ever. Want to know some comparisons with xb2 dirt and b6d. I saw a yz2 dirt this weekend in the hands if a newer driver on outdoor wet dirt (holeshots and ribbed fronts). Looked great. Cornering exceptionally well and the driver liked it. Had sold his xb2 as he was frustrated with the out of he box setup and loved the yok dirt out of the box

I'm liking the DT so far. I came from a B5M and I find that the DT suits my driving style better. The DT has increased steering response, jumps better/flatter, has faster corner speed, etc. All positives in my book. I cannot compare it to the B6D as I have never driven one

AE basically stole the ideas it had to make the B6D, so you know its a good car. But with a much better starting setup.

I've found that my original YZ-2>than B5, anything really for outdoor dirt. If I were a top level driver thorns' doubt I'd win most races I enter because when I can drive flawlessly no one can touch my car. It's on rails and reruns superbly and jumps perfectly. In one race wherein was super loose I dialed in a tad more wing and my car was the only one not spinning out under braking and wouldn't lose the rear powering through faster corners/sections of track.

I'm going to order the SS RR hanger to see if it maintains the same performance as with my added brass bar. If not I intend to modify the tungsten weight kit I have to assist in bringing the rearmost weight bias back to where it is now.

I've got the original yz2 and have recently put a 3 gear in it. My local carpet track is closing so the nearest tracks to me now are loose dirt and clay tracks. Would my yz2 go ok as it is or can I put a ball diff straight in, which would be better?

so since i race on clay i want to get one of these but im not sure which way to go. i was thinking about getting the dirt edition and buying the carpet edition trans case set/ waterfall but i dont know what else i will need to finish the car? is there anything else different between the two cars? i already campaign a laydown 22 3.0 and its wicked fast in stock buggy.

basically what do i need to convert to the low profile transmission?

I know that the shock towers are different. I think that is about it.

JPlucko, is it the first version of the yz2 you have? If so then it wouldn't work on loose dirt and it depends on the type of traction you would get with the clay. If you have the CA version then I would get the stuff to convert it to the DT car for the loose dirt conditions.

Default Differences DT-CA

To Gokarter64 , just had a quick look in both manuals ,the following are different:

rear shock tower , wing mount , motor mount , waterfall (gearbox support) , gearbox halves , upper suspension arm mount . If you download the manuals there was a link a few pages back on Petitrc I think.

Good luck
