teamyokomo.eu should get you covered.

I must say though the car looks far more stable down the straight than any of the b5m's.
Yep first round and last rounds it was much better. Good job for having very little time with the car.

Anyone have a lead on pre-cut chassis protectors for the YZ-2 yet?

When ordering from Yokomo Europe, aka Mibosport, my average delivery time has been between 2-3 days and that's to the west coast of the U.S.

What you do is build your cart, checkout but don't pay yet - reply to the email that will generate asking for a PayPal invoice w/o the VAT and you'll be paying less and you're on your way.

Pricey compressed to Amain but the way to go if your YZ-2 needs parts asap. Amain's sea of red "back order" listings for parts is what has kept mine in the box still...

Default YZ-2 Parts and review

I am almost done with the build, just have to finish shocks after getting machined pistons. This is the best out of the box buggy I have ever built. It comes with every aluminum hop you would want except maybe rear hubs. The fit, finish, and quality are incredible, as good as Xray . The chassis is a work of art. There is a ton of innovative features that I am sure a lot will copy soon as carpet/astro becomes more popular in the US.

My only complaint and it is little is that the hinge pin retainer screws were hex instead of phillips. Machined pistons included would have been nice but no big deal.


As far as parts I ordered a spare of every suspension component, pins, and some Yatabe springs here:

Shipping was $15 and arrived in 3 days.

This car has plenty of steering and the rear is planted on a clay track. Car is great but the driver is failing. In the B - main along with the other 2 YZ's :-( The car is easy to drive and I'm killing cars in the corners.

Values given by Yokomo on the chart are measured, not calculated.
As for unit, check this page (Buggy Big Bore Spring Chart - PDF / XLS), conversion is done.
