dont hesitate to order from them. 100% top notch company, and you'll most likely get the parts faster than ordering from the usa.

Agreed 100 percent and some. Michal at MIBO is a super awesome fella whom provides superior customer service. Low ET is correct regarding shipping as well as I have received all of my orders in 3days thus 4 days max.

I've used an avid one, so I assume there will be a Schelle one to match?

Mibosport are in the Czech republic, and offer a very good service to the USA or anywhere. Michael Bok runs a right ship.

MB Models are in the UK, and are also excellent. Michael Ball had in the past some issue shipping stateside however, perhaps shipping insurance or card payment related related? I'll check tomorrow when I'm there and update. Favorable $ rates may make it a good option now?

Another option is Tonisport in Germany from Marc Rheinard's Brother Toni. Awesome service and fantastic own brand and ME33 product range as well.

Mibosport FTW! Great customer service and no issues! They even threw in some chocolates on the order I placed over the holidays!

Im pretty sure they do. The old and new chassis have different part numbers though

This should be all you need to do it: https://www.amainhobbies.com/yokomo-...-302c3/p493848

As far as I understand it, the CA laydown trans does bolt up to the original chassis with the same holes, however, the DT transmission does not without drilling holes, kinda like for the YMax conversion.

Others with more expertise on this topic may chime in to confirm.

Yup the 3 gear fits on the old chassis. New one just has the holes to mount the DT as draboy19 said. I run the original car with 3 gear.

The Gullwing shock tower and front arms tend to make the car steer more aggressive. The YZ2'S, by design have alot of front grip so going to the Gullwing parts is more of a personal preference. You'll only know if it's right for you if you try it.

Front sway bar does wonders for the twitchy steering. Front and rear bars
really calm the car down on carpet/astro
