Try and post a picture, but other information that would be helpful to know if if you have any shock limiters installed, and what your mm distance is between the bottom of the shock cap/body and the top of the eyelid. Typically, with two limiters in the shock, you shouldn't have much more than 29mm of travel on the rear shock shaft. If you have more than that, it could explain hitting it.

A lot of us run the 62mm axles and have no issues, so wondering if you have installed something incorrectly.

Did you build the diff correctly or maybe not tighten it down enough? Do you have the spacer on the correct side of the axle?

the kit comes with the 60.50 shafts and i have 2.5 degree negative camber .also the spacers 2x were intalled in the shocks. also the spacer your talking about is the one between the 2 bearings?

In the end, if a team driver is faster with someone else's springs... links... whatever, the car still says "Yokomo" and the driver's shirt still says "Yokomo".

Now running tires from other than your tire sponsor appears to be a no-no unless you've got to run a control tire at the event. But that makes sense. Running someone else's tires would be the equivalent of running a Kyosho buggy with a Kyosho sticker on it when your shirt says, "Yokomo". Quite different!

Mine has plenty of clearance. The spacer I'm talking about is the cone shaped axle spacer that goes on the outside of the hub just behind the wheel hex. I'm just making sure you have it on the outside of the hub and not on the inside which would push your axle further into the diff. I'd also make sure your diff is built properly. Here is a pic of the clearance that I have one mine.

Sounds like you assembled the diff incorrect. Also.too much neg camber will cause this aswell

Default Fantastic first practice session

I dont know why i waited so long to switch (actually i do, tax return lol) im very impressed by how well the ca handles on clay with just a few adjustments to the stock setup.

I do however want to do a little more work on reducing rotating mass so i can get more out of my motor. So my question is whether the ae diff will fit in the yz2 so that i may use pucks.

with the cars near all being metric so much is interchangeable and near anything seems possible.

the AE B5m worlds car photos i saw was alot of yokomo. recent photos of the reedy race showed various rear hubs and outdrives used on AE cars, some looked like re-anodized versions of existing hubs other cars use. there are posts of AE drivers using TLR bones with etc parts

ae and yok use 52T diff gear. most 2wds use the same size diff support bearings, so use of another brands diff may come down to just shimming. you can probably use one, but may have to use the AE hub or after market carriers

there was a xray XB2 posted somewhere that had TLR diff, TLR aluminum bones, TLR outdrives and TLR hubs set up for stock racing. the wiki on XB2 shows setting up a puck system using older MIP yokomo parts. seen TLR posts of racers using serpent diffs, etc

yokomo picked up some key drivers, so if the demand picks up on the car, maybe MIP will fire up the lathes again?

Hope so. I found out though a little research that the ae outdrives will bolt onto the yz diff and that by using the new offset hubs i can use b6 bones. The b6 ones are a half mil shorter than the yokomo offset ones but it should work ok.
