Yok for life!!! I don't care what it costs, or the "value" of the kit. I just got my 2 kits with ALL the option parts, and can't wait to build them! I've been a Yok fan since I got my first Yokomo back in 1989 and have had pretty much every Yokomo car (except for drift cars) that have been made. Even had my "Project Yokomo" on the cover of RC Car Action with the Corally "Coral" aluminum chassis!! And have owned a couple of Masami's used cars over the years (percs of having friends at Car Action) I'm Dying here at work with my Kit Boxes next to me and I have 2 more hours before I can leave and play with my new TOYS!! Good luck to everyone building and racing their cars this weekend, I wont be able to race mine until after thanksgiving.

Definitely agree!

I am just now making the switch from Schumacher to Yokomo. Loved my SV2, but the K1 aero was pain in the arse.

Got both the YZ-2 and YZ-4 kits last night. Not in a rush to build because our track is a Party store right now... Will be ready after Christmas.

So far the YZ-2 is an easy build. I have always loved the way Yok parts index together.

Hello,
To change the oil in the differential, it must take time?
It is necessary to remove many parts, isn't it?

Thank you!
Hey my friend for stainless steel screw kits per many different RC brands and kits try Tonys Screws. www.tonysscrews.com.

Not sure if they have a stainless screw kit put together for the YZ4 however I believe you can build a Kit. Highjy likely they will have every screw size you need.

Best,

How is suspension popping off user error you would think in 2015 they would design a better way to mount suspension, and belts that are paper thin, and arms that are weak,if that is user error than l'm guilty and FYI I have been in the hobby since my Tamiya frog in 1984 and have built more kits than you have hot meals so go play somewhere else rookie

My Schumacher kf2 works great and I haven't broken a thing, some people just have better luck with some kits than others. I also owned the durango dex410 and never broke a thing while others broke all the time. I even know people who have had the AE b44 and never broke a front arm ( true story ) Let's stop the brand bashing in all these threads and talk about the car the threads about for once.

Chris, go back to trolling with the boys in the Schumacher section, the men need to talk Yokomo

Finished my build. My first thoughts are I shouldn't ordered most of the hop ups. They'll be here Monday. My opinion only thing needed is rear aluminum suspension blocks for adjustability and the narrow belt system. The stock belt are too tight but after doing 4 bench packs, drivetrain is getting loose. So I guess you have to break in like you would do ball diffs. Also car is roughly 130 grams lighter then my Bmaxx4.

The local track owner here just got this and proceeded to TQ and whoop everyone first time out. I asked him if it turns as good as the YZ-2 and he said it turned even better. Sold! Anyone want to buy a HB D4-13? Lol
