I havent bolted it up yet but I do not see any length difference at the moment. The Bmax chassis doesnt allow the battery to go as far forward as the YZ does. I will post pictures this weekend.

Looks like Carson Wernimont is Running Yokomo at the Roar nats.

Should be interesting to see what a Clay setup for a Turf car looks like.

He is running the ProLine PRIME tires is appears.

Several top drivers have driven the car at the Reedy race earlier this year, and it seemed to work pretty good. Although there is no set-up of David Ronnefalk or Jörn Neumann there, feel free to check out Lee Martin's Cactus Classic set-up at petitrc:

Everyone is on the Proline Prime tires. It is the spec tire for the race.

i drove my converted yz2 on the weekend. on a dirt outdoor track, normally med grip but was very low. ran super soft impacts all day.

it was really good. way better than the yz2 on dirt. i did really get to do much in terms of lap times due to the low grip but it was easy to drive, and had good corner speed. the only thing i really did was put the steel 'D' plate on which helped corner from low speed and braking.
