I have no doubt that it will be good, but with the car as it is now out of the box, I would want to throw some metal at it to make it more tunable. The thing that really sucks to me, is the plastic rear suspension, and camber block parts. Just makes the car look cheap to me.
Hi Bro, quick check with you, i assume you got your hands on the kit and we are waiting for ours at this side of the world..anyway can you advise:
==========
1. FF/FR Hangers - is it alu or plastics?..if plastics, can the bmax 4/3 fit in?
2. RF/RR Hangers - is plastics, so can the YZ-2 ones fit in?
3. Rear upper camber block - Is Plastic, so can the YZ-2 ones ALU fit in?
4. front suspension caster - Plastic or alu?

*Believe the whole steering system is the same as YZ-2?

I believe the alu options hubs for YZ-2 can be fitted in.

Cheers!!

The aluminum rear camber block from the YZ2 will work. So will the aluminum or steel rear front hanger. The steering link is a tad different than the YZ2.

I believe the aluminum bellcrands from the YZ2 will work.

I think front suspension hangers is aluminum.

Front casters are plastic as well as rear hubs. Rear aluminum hubs for the yZ2 work. Front aluminum casters for the bmax4 I believe will work. 8 degree or 15.

MB models has all the YZ4 parts listed

Not sure about the camber and caster blocks, but the front hangers are aluminium and the rear ones are plastic however they are a direct swap for the yz2 aluminium rear hangers the hubs are also a direct swap part numbers for the above parts are the same part numbers for the corresponding yz2.

Norse, thank you so much for the input..i have a yz-2 on hand, little usage, might just take out the RF/RR and the rear alu camber block to have a go at it when we receive our kits over here..

once again, thank you so much!!

HSV427, thats what i believe also, most parts numbers a/o alu parts option parts on the yz-2 are indentical to the YZ-4, since i have a YZ-2 on hand and with very little milage on her, might just strip her up and see what can fit in perfectly, now..just waiting for the kit to arrive..

Cheers!!

Hi there,

Where in HK did you order from?
Just curious as I dont see many shops selling Off-Road stuff in HK.

Thanks mate,
Eirik

No Problem my friend.

I not sure on the YZ2 aluminum, steel and brass rear rear hanger but the aluminum, steel and brass YZ2 front rear hangers are a go.

YZ4 Aluminum Steering link is different than the YZ2, however the YZ2 aluminum bell cranks are a go.

Aluminum (black) 8 degree and 15 degree front casters for the BMax4 III are a go.

YZ2 aluminum rear hubs are a go
YZ2 aluminum rear camber block and weight set are a go

BMAx4 aluminum floating servo mount I am pretty positive is a go

The Machined Vented aluminum inner and outer slipper plates are a go
YZ2 front and rear black diamond coated shock shafts are a go.

Lots of upgrade parts but man what a sweet looking buggy the YZ4 will be either stock or blinged out.

MB Models London has the YZ4 parts listed and many pictured as well as MiboSpot has the YZ4 parts listed and many pictured.

The listed YZ4 parts will include the YZ2 parts that cross over to the YZ4

MB Models are receiving YZ4 kits Tuesday with parts and option parts arriving Thursday. Micheal at MB Models/rccarshopeurope is a very very helpful person. Thus he supplies primo customer service regarding every different line of RC equipment they carry. Very fast shipping as I ordered some other parts from them and received them in 4 days. London to the upper mid-west of the United States.

Best

Oh I forgot the graphite idler posts for the YZ4 are a go for the YZ4. Thus 1 pack of 2 will cover both tranny's.

Best,

Has anyone confirmed wether or not the rear rear hangers from the YZ2 will work on the YZ4? I know the rear frontside hangers will work.

When checking online you see the YZ2 number on the rear front hanger as it is a YZ2 part however you don't see the YZ2 rear rear hanger mentioned for use on the YZ4. You see similar part numbers but know picture. Thus is it confusing trying to figure out the rear rear hanger.

Thanks

There is a aluminium rear rear hanger available but it would appear to be for the "S4" rear wishbone. What that is intended for though, who knows?

As far as I can tell... The S4 rear wishbone is the standard yz-4 rear arm... The yz-2 arm is an option!?

Also, what's the narrow rear belt/pulley for...seems an odd option!?

And will the gull wing stuff be for high grip like on the 2wd?
