IF you aren't familiar with TEAM AZARASHI, you should check them out.

http://www.team-azarashi.com/prodenglish.html (English page)

Recent spy shots of their forthcoming body "FASCIA" have been released for the YZ2. I happily own the Erithius body for the Bmax2 and the GreySeal kit for my B44.

I for one am excited (even though I don't own the YZ2.)

I was able to successfully install the arrowmax front and rear brass bulkheads from the bmax2 in my yz-2. For the rear bulkhead I had to raise the tranny 1mm to gain the proper clearance. Anyone else have to do this?

Q for the people who have a yz2 and a bmax2: are the front arms different lengths on the 2 cars? I would like to try some longer front arms on my bmax.

Here is a pic from Marc Rheinard's facebook page showing the car the team is running at this year's European Championship. Before any questions arise: They are running on a dirt track with Holeshot control tires.
