Can you describe the track surface a bit?

Car looks good, holding off buying one until a couple months to see wear characteristics of parts first.

Its a shame when people blame the manufacturer for poor quality when they clearly can't build it right or drive it correctly!

Yeah i will let the old men talk about yokomo and the real racers can talk schumacher!

The YZ4 looks awesome, as does the new Schumacher K2! This thread is getting a bit silly with the constant and unnessary remarks about either cars and manufacturers. Some cars just don't suit some people, fact, deal with it and move on! Ive seen Yokomo and Schumacher cars have issues with build and reliability, but both are still great examples of how buggies should be made.

Also, how do he rear hangars work? Is it only one set that works with the kit arms?

As far as I understand, the kit S4 arms are the short arms and need the wide hangers from the kit or the front YZ-2 mount and Z4-300SRR, which is not available yet. Longer arms called L5 will be released sooner or later, which will need the narrow kit hangers or Z4-300LRF/LRR. I found these part numbers at Hobby Shop Hässig in Switzerland.

Chris Sturdy's car did not look too bad in his video on facebook, he seemed to like it a lot on dirt.

Hey MES,

Do you have the link to the fellas video running the YZ4.

I think this buggy can be set up to run on anything from very low bit outdoor dirt to very high bite indoor carpet and everything else in between.

Hi Guys
Just go on face book and look for Chris Sturdy, Video is there
This was not the best setup we tried for the run on the video but was ok, only had 4 hours with the buggy so far, played around with a few things but did not have time to try different diff oils, we run much heaver oil in the B-Max4 III on this track, we had 5/5 in as we were going to run on a outdoor track on Saturday but did not.
Regards
Gary

So in theory I can use the fr rear Ali mount straight away from the Yz 2, and use inserts to play with squat and toe at that end? With the std s4 arm and rear hangar?

I assume kit standard setup is 3 degrees toe and 2 squat, based on the name of the hangar!
