The stock one works great. If you want to go to an eliminator setup, the exotek kyosho rb6 (link) fits with a 2mm spacer (to space out from motor plate). I run the Jconcepts silence speed spurs for the AE cars when running the slipper setup on mine with no issues.

Schelle is already on it. He is at the Cactus right now so things will have to wait until he gets back.

Default First run thoughts !

Today I ran the YZ-2 for the first time , this car has lots of potential for sure !! I race on medium traction topsoil / clay mix tracks that are for the part on the dry side . The YZ-2 is more capable in my opinion to the RB6 cars I have run in the past . More on powers steering and great out of the turn forward bite . So don't be afraid to hit the dirt with this car !

I'm with you. Mine was 1450 with the ti screw kit only on it and the 4250 protek shorty. also had a shorty servo. i now have the chassis weight in, 15g up front and 25 in the rear, with the brick pack running in-line. car is absolutely amazing.
