There site must not convert usd right. It's 313.30€ convert that to usd and it's $355.11. I bought stuff from mibosport a few weeks ago and paid in € through PayPal and it converted correctly. I didn't use there $ site though I used there € site. Also amain is the only importer for yokomo in the us and with the high demand for the yz-2 it will be tough getting one and parts for a little while.

At mibosport.com the yz-2 is currently $391 shipped. When dealing with mibosport you have to place an order but do not pay when it says to. You comment in the request box and he will send you an invoice with the VAT taken off. Your order will be sent UPS 2nd day Air, so know that if you buy from their shipping is around $25 and up. If you are in need of the car in a hurry you can order from them. Amain should be getting an order this month, but your more than likely going to have to backorder it as you never know how big the shipment will be.

Has anyone ran this car on med grip clay tracks? Really interested in one.
And any recommended spares? Or hop ups needed?

Not trying to be a jerk but read a few pages of the thread, many people have asked the same questions and it's been answered many times.

My track goes from medium to high grip clay. My YZ-2 has current track record fast lap. Car stays consistent as grip changes. Steering feels very good and precise, without that rear end step out that some cars get.
