Anyone have any wheelbase measurements for the yz2 at its minimum and maximum wheelbase. Im trying to make a stadium truck conversion and i need to figure out how much i need to add to the chassis to get the correct wheelbase. Ballpark estimates put me at about 50-60mm. Then from there all i need to do is get my hands on a set of xt2 towers so i can grab the hole locations and build some new shock towers. From there you should be able to bolt on towers, chassis, xt2 arms and truck shocks of your choice and have a pretty sweet truck. It would be too expensive for me to produce them so my grand plan is to put out free cad files for everyone so they can build their own.

I have one on my yz4 which uses the same alum rear bulkhead as the CA.

No reason it can't, but you will need the waterfall brace from an original or CA, along with the wing mounts, rear shock tower, and camber brace.

Good to know - honestly first time I had seen a rear swaybar used with the aluminum stuff.

Josh - I have the plastic turnbuckles and plastic clips if you are looking to piece this together, but I don't have metal ball holders and swaybars. My guess is you will buy the whole kit, but if you just needed a few parts I could help you out.

Good luck.

My orginal YZ-2 is as follows:

Front to Rear (center of axle to center to axle) - 279mm
Front wheelbase (center outer hinge pin to center of outer hingepin) - 184mm
Rear wheelbase (center outer hinge pin to center of outer hingepin) - 182.5mm

If you need something more specific let me know, and I can try and measure as needed.

Good luck.

i have the YZ4 sway bar kit, but it doesn't come with parts to mount to the Al bulkhead. What are the mounting parts?

You don't have to pay VAT from Mibosport or Tonisport. All you have to do is send them an email with the items you want and tell them you are from the USA. I usually just put all the items I want into the shopping cart, then copy/cut/pasted that into an email. Pretty simple and easy with fast 2-3 day shipping. I've ordered stuff Monday morning and got it on Wednesday. Excellent service.

No problem. Of course I try to support Amain, but they don't always have stock of what I want. So gotta reach out to other sources. Mibo and Toni are the first ones I go to.
