Hello
Got my YZ2-CA, have most of it already built. Car went together very well.
When building the shocks, they sounded quite squeaky, when finished. I have not yet put any oil in them. Is this normal or would it be neccesary to buy the machined pistons?
Thanks in advance.

The machined pistons are the one must-have part for this car that doesn't come in the box.

What pistons do You recommend? This thread's first page suggests 2x1.6 and Lee Martin suggests 2x1.6 and 2x1.7.
I also found that the steering link, that connects the horn and the rack, rubs the inner upper part of the bulkhead. Do I shave a little Of the rod end or have a done something wrong?

2x1.6 front and 2x1.7 rear is pretty much the standard starting point on pistons.
If you are rubbing the bulkhead with the servo arm, take the arm off the servo and re-orient it 1-2 teeth more towards the left of the car on the servo itself. It is hard to tell in the manual (stare at the illustration on p20 for a while and you'll get it) but the servo horn doesn't actually go totally upright for center like most cars.

The servo horn works fine and doesn't rub the bulkhead. Although as I use a large servo,which put the rod in a very bad angle, I switched the plastic horn for a 0-offset aluminium horn. When I installed the horn upright, I figured out it should be tilted.
The problem is, that the rod end on the steering rack side touches the bulkhead's arc, when turning right.
Also, is there a trick to make the clutch hole into the body.

Are yatabe springs all that much harder than standard Yokomo? Petit rc spring chart shows the actual measured rate of a yatabe green rear at 1.99 vs advertised 2.71? Just bought a set of Yokomo Orange and the rear is measured also at 1.99. What is a good setup for yz2 on super high bite and medium bite ? Looking for aggressive steering if driving a yz2 dirt. Any help on how to approach these springs or which sets to buy to experiment with is much appreciated

I am in the process of building the CA and was wondering what the handling differences are when the rear shocks are mounted in front versus behind the tower?

Thanks!

Shocks in the rear feels more stable on bumpy low(er)-traction tracks. If the traction is up, mount the shocks in the front.
