Ran the car in a low/med bite track today. Car was dialed. I know what changes I'd like to make for the next time out when I actually have more time. I'm all in on the YZ and won't even look at my Bmax again.

1523g with shorty pack and VTR Electrons. Reason for all these weights being handy is I couldn't believe how light this buggy felt compared to my B5m. So I was weighing each one in their various stages.

Do you guys think this is Yoke's clay/dirt car or you think there's a yz2 with a different chassis or conversion on the horizon?

I know they have been working on a couple of new parts to make it better on dirt but I have no idea when those will be released.

I thought the AE Reds were a carpet spring. What surface are you running on?

MY car is really good up here. We have a 5 pack section that is really tricky for everyone and I struggle with it a bit more with this car than the RB6, but the car is so good everywhere else it makes up for it. Just need a little more time with the shock package and it will be dialed there too

Probably post a setup sheet tomorrow if I get a chance.

Unless you have to change a spur gear. Thanks Masami

I changed my spur in 20sec. Went from 69 to 72 no problem. What issues are you having? The one thing I did do was shave down the unused body mount nipple. It's in the way for larger spurs but we all use velcro so why is it there?

I can see a "dirt" version but I doubt it would be too different... We'll have to see if it becomes their dirt car but they are certainly trying to make it so!

Quick double check, Pistons from the bmax fit without modification right?

So I can run my usual 1.6/1.7's!?
