It uses all the stock shocks and shock towers from the YZ-2.The Sct wheels are kyosho offset rear and associated on the front the Stadium Trucks is associated front and rear they also have exotec 9mm hexes on the back it puts the truck to the roar legal max Sct width of 296mm maybe a little less with no tow or camber adjustments and Stadium Truck to 12.75 width under the 13" max for roar. As far as the body goes I had it painted by Larry Genova he does all my bodies to match you can find him on face book. The trucks drive just like the buggies and turn on a dime. I am thinking of selling the conversions but I have not decided yet. I would probably have people send me there buggy and I would complete the conversions and send them back if I do go that route.
NCBeast,

After driving a Kyosho RT6 all winter, I would want the quick change wheels/hubs. It is so convenient and makes things easier race day when you run multiple classes. Did you try the Kyosho arms? I was impressed with the Kyosho parts this winter and their durability. Pricing isn't too bad either.

What ever! I was not aware of anything. Just asking general info. Thought, I would get general answers. No harm intended to those involved I know nothing about. My thought once again was to give props to who ever designed the parts.

My yz2 all ready. Off work today so decided to hide all the wires, capacitor and Transponder.

New foam piece coming Thursday as I've butchered it on the one side.

This is my first Yokomo since the original DogFighter about 1000 years ago:




I had been running the TLR22 for the past two years and I thought that car was pretty darn good on our high bite carpet track. I dropped the YZ-2 on the same layout with a general high bite setup and the thing was a second quicker per lap right from it's first battery. Bloody AWESOME!

Glad to see more people making the switch and loving the car. I have been talking to a lot of manufacturers to create a solid aftermarket for all the Yokomo line of cars. Always a good idea to post setup sheets so people have an idea of the complete setup and we can build a stronger community of support for the cars.

I got lucky with the setup, I went to Petitrc and found one of Shin's first setups and I haven't looked back

Most of the time I bring up the Yz-2 I hear "oh the carpet car?" I run on a clay track and of the guys was thinking of getting the YZ-2. When we told another driver last night that was his first words.

I know peeps have been able to run this on clay. I was debating on this car and then my Tower Hobbies pre=order on the B5m-Lite went through.

In stock the car is a monster.....even on loose dusty clay. The b5m light is a very nice car but don't count this one out or forget about it. I've had more fun with the yz2 than I've had with a car in a few years. It's actually fun to tinker and make the carpet car into a clay car.

I've got my car dialed in, to the point of it being a lot of fun to drive! I'm on a medium bite clay with gold dirt webs. The difference between the YZ and B5M is th YZ is so much easier to drive and feels so much mor solid in all aspects! It's a breathe of fresh air over the b5m!

I just got my YZ2 built. I gotta say very nice quality car. My only gripe is the space (or lack there of) for the electronics. Looking at it, to use the battery foams with a shorty pack I'm going to have to mount the receiver on the servo. I'm using Trakpower system with Spektrum radio gear. The servo I'm using is a expert digital. Anyways looking forward to driving this car. I have to get some soldering and wiring done. After that it's all painting the body.

Ive found im way faster on high bite carpet with the ball diff. Tried the geared on 2000wt last week and it felt like a different car, could not get it to settle out of corners, this last Fridays meet, back on the ball diff, car was amazing.
Seems to love a stiffer setting too, i ran 45wt front Black Yatabe, 40wt rear Purple Yatabe, 4mm spacers on the ackerman plate, rest of the set up, kit, car had tons of grip, im running the Bmax4 rear arms too and brass rear pivot blocks, was good enough for an A final quali and a 2nd place finish, my best yet, and im not too good in finals lol.
