Finally had some time to open the yok box and look over the bags. First impressions are WOW this kit has some nice parts! The only issues I see are the steel turnbuckles, and getting parts in-stock. Looking over all the set-up sheets from similar tracks as mine, I think I'm going with STLNLST. Seems to be the most neutral of all and liked the reference to the springs. Only trouble as stated before is the ball diff. I didn't order fast enough and now no one has outdrives.

Why are steel turnbuckles an issue ? I've been running mine with them and have had no issues, I also run my b-max2 and b-max4 with them and have never even bent one .

The titanium turnbuckles use to be a must have for me. I haven't put them on my Bmax4 or YZ just to see how they hold up. Having the original saddle chassis wheeler converted to the shorty I'd say they held up well.

There's no issue with the steel turnbuckles. Only go Ti if you like them. They won't make you faster.

I'm just thinking about "gotta finish to win". And with parts availability an issue. I would think the ti would be a sensible upgrade. But Im going to try them out and see what happens. Also what diff fluid for a clay/dirt damp to dry med size track would be good 5000 7000?

3000 is what I'd use. Finish to win....you plan on hitting an SC truck....lol. the steel will finish the race while you wait on the ti turnbuckles.

You could try to get a VBC Firebolt diff or just the outdrives with rings. Except for the diff rings, dimensions are identical.

I hear the AE diff is plug and play... if you look at the outdrives for both AE and Yok, they look identical.

I can verify that BFast PN# P02-C works with the option diff kit for the YZ (I have one in my car)

FYI - Lunsford PN#2059 for the Losi 22 has the same size (3mm x 52mm) turnbuckles as the YZ

Because a top of the line $350 car should come with Ti turnbuckles.
