Well at our local track at least, the Schumacher is the dominant tire. The dBoots are a little easier to drive, but the life is 1/2 that of the schumacher. I just trip one row of pins off on each side of the rear Mini Pins and its just enough to take the major edge off.

If you still need a carpet setup, I can share mine.

Ballistic buggy white mini pin tyres are a good alternative and just as fast as schumachers, with the added bonus of lasting longer.

OK I'm new to the Yokomo just about to buy one of these over the bmax one's.One question it will be run at a new track outdoor's that will be built over the next few month's or so, it's only a new club and to start with I'd say it will be groomed dirt and as the club get's going upgraded do you guy's have a setup that will be good for this track and what else should I purchase. Thank's any input would be appreciated.

ps' have posted on the bmax thread the same question but have decided to go the yz-2 road as every body down here in Australia seem's to be selling the bmax one's.I must say i love the look of the yz and all it's metal part's.

I have run Tekin motors and ESC's before..... Thats why I run a certified D4 and Advanced Electronics Black Diamond esc, because Tekin is good but thats it. Most of it is what happens in the drivers hand and what works for them. Cant dis them but cant praises them either.

Anyone who has raced on carpet....are the rear shocks better in front of or behind the rear arms? I have noticed that Lee Martin has driven it both ways after looking at his setup sheets on Petit.

I also alternate on carpet. In front gives more steering and generally better mid-air attitude, on the back gives more forward bite/drive when coming off a corner. My lap times are typically quicker with them on the front but there will be times when the rear-end is just too squirmy on-power so I have to move them back. The guys running the car in stock on carpet are front-always, I run mod.

In regards to the motors does it matter when you pair different makes? For instance I have an Orion Vortex esc and want to run either ReedyMach 2 10.5 or the TrinityD4 10.5. Will this effect the performance of either items?

Generally, when you pair a quality brand esc with a quality brand motor you get a quality result. My personal preference that I've arrived at for running both 2&4wd mod buggies is an Orion R10 ESC with a Reedy Mach2 motor, ymmv.

I run them on the rear of the arms on high grip carpet. I tried some yatabe black rear springs with yatabe orange on the front tonight. Broke the onroad buggy record by .30 which was held by a cougar kf. Gonna find out how these stiffer springs jump on Saturday.Has anyone tried the yatabe purple springs?

I ran Purple rear on 40wt/Orange front 45wt a while back, on a technical track i found it really nailed, though, same club/carpet the following week, on a much more open layout, it seemed more squirmy to me, weird, that was also on BmaxIII rear arms.
Ive set it up for tonight with the same set up, but with yellow Yatabe to go at it again, but trying an extra 1mm spacer under the rear hub ball stud to try get a tad more rear sidebite.
Just trying to learn a bit more about it TBH as it works very different to most cars at our club.

Actually I just realized this is not my most recent carpet setup.

Here is my most recent, from 3/20
