Basically, yes, shocks on front for real high bite (it really unbinds the rear and lets the car carry more cornerspeed in those conditions) but on the rear if it's loose at all.

Yep, the car should feel a bit more loose with the shocks on the front side. And by loose, I mean, you get the more rotation (less grip). MarkA also explains it very well.

If you are not sure HOW it feels, just try them in the front and try them in the rear. It's that easy. I personally run them in the front, but I also know some guys who always (even on high grip) run them in the rear because of that is the way they like it.

Do the B5 gears, diff and idlers, fit in the gearbox? I'd like to run Speedy's cut gears if I can.
Do any of you know if a slipper eliminator for the B5 will fit the topshaft? Same reason I am asking this.

Not sure on the idlers but was told the B5 diff fits if you shim it.

The top shaft isn't the same either. I've been testing some Factory RC carbon fiber Avid/Sheele spur slipper eliminators with great success. They're not out yet, but should be shortly.

Thank you for the reply Randy. As much as I enjoy products from both David and Kurt, Speedy's treats me the goodest. Yes, I meant that.

I've got a B5 diff in mine at the moment, simply cos the yokomo ball diff was not in stock at the time and had a B5 lying around doing squat. It is a bit of a sloppy fit with the dog bone 'floating' around the B5 outdrives. It's not an ideal setup, but good enough to 'try out' a ball diff in the yz-2. Will be putting a yok diff in soon.

So just in case I plan on doing the Ymax mod for my car when it arrives. I lucked out and got my local track directors lightly used Bmax 2 MR V3. for $75.00 bucks (mid-motor parts were never used as he is a rear motor forever guy. What parts do I need from it to do the conversion?

There's a nice list of parts here: http://factory-rc.com/shop/index.php...product_id=100

Since you have all of them off the old car, you're set.

I just built the yz2 for carpet this winter and all I can say is that if it drives like it built it will be amazing. I cannot get over how easy the build was as the fit and finish was excellent. I have was running a B5m lite so I will see how different it is. Starting with the stock setup for now but with 1.6 2 hole 40wt front and 1.7 2hole 30wt rear asc oil
