The narrow 6mm belt and pulleys provides less resistance. I have been told by a pro for Yoke that one would have to be driving through glass to possible breach the 8mm belts.
Possibly the 8mm is over kill however I like that a Yoke provided a belt that is more than enough regarding strength and decreasing skipping.

I am thinking since the frontside rear YZ2 aluminum, steel and brass hangers directly fit the YZ4 that the Rear Rear YZ2 aluminum, steel, and brass hanger should work. Possibly the new option part is coming with busing inserts.

The YZ4 Kit a-arms are flat thus gullwings are optional as well as optional CF shock towers for use with gullwing arms.

Possibly some of the aluminum YZ2 parts that directly work on the YZ4 are not fully being disclosed? Maybe inventory is being held for creating some type of options package upgrade? Heck I am probably wrong but who knows.

I am going to go ahead and pick up an YZ2 aluminum Rear Rear hanger just for the heck of it, thus purchase the plastic bumper combined with hanger bushing inserts.

Hey Brudda,

Try rccarshopeurope or MIBOsport. RCcarshop/MBModels and MIBOsport have lightning fast shipping. MB models 3 days to my door in the states from London.

If they don't have them I know they are expecting kits Monday and parts Thursday.

Hey do you know if the rear rear aluminum hanger from for the YZ2 fits the YZ4?

I tried those places but shipping to Australia is ridiculous a $12 shock tower cost $50 to ship i guess thats the price you pay living on the opposite side of the planet. Yes the rear hanger is a direct fit, my kit arrives tuesday and with it i ordered these parts and was told they would fit,

Yokomo Rear Suspension Mount (Forward)
1 x YOKZ2-300RR
Yokomo Rear Suspension Mount (Backward)
1 x YOKZ2-300RUW
Yokomo Aluminum Rear Camber Block w/Optional Weights
YOKZ2-201BA
Yokomo Aluminum Steering Bell Crank (2)
Now i just need the shock towers and ill be happy.

Make sure they are correct on the center steering link as the aluminum one for the YZ2 is different than the aluminum center steering link for the YZ4. I could be wrong but definetly check it out as you don't want to get a part that doesn't work.

I hope I am wrong my friend but I think they are different thus definetly check into it.

I have a friend over in Asia who bought it for me and posted it, the official release date was the 14th which makes sense cause by the time they ship to the US distributor and he distributes to all the stores will take at least 10 days.

Tim runs a great shop! I used to order parts and pinions with him when they were out of stock for longer periods in Europe, but fortunately there is no longer need for this most of the time.
Can't wait to get my hands on my kit and parts this week, will probably pick it up on Thursday or Friday...

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
Norse,

again thank you so much..now waiting for our side to get the buggy, will try setting her up loose dirt.
