I'm still a little confused by all the Yokomo spring options, there seem to be a few that don't coincide all that well. Those are the (non "yatabe") ones that amain have listed in the YZ-4 parts list, but they always seem to be out of stock. I ordered a set at the beginning of January, and they just filled the back order a few days ago, but they were back out of stock the same day...

I assume they're the same as the kit springs though, which I though were going to be Yellow, but turned out to be green.

Does anyone have any idea on what effect short vs long rear arms have?

In general:

Long arms: More stability, better for the bumpy stuff. You risk it feeling stale or lazy though.
Short arms: More grip. Dont forget though, if shorter arms make it less stable it may feel as though you have less grip.

I don't see any setup sheets for the Reedy Race on Petit for the YZ-4. I'm a little disappointed.

Glarke, were you able to measure your batteries?

Norse, in reality it is sometimes easier and cheaper (about 35%), for me to get parts shipped all the way from the states than buying them here down under. So I would definitely consider buying from the US. Amain posts to AU for about 2 $US.

This is what I did. 1.- I removed the foam padding that goes under the battery, attached to the chassis, 2.- I removed 1 shim from the rear battery tensioner. It is meant to have 2 shims on its screw and 2 on its little post, 3.- I added 1 shim to the 3 battery posts.

Now I can fit in both my saddles and shorty.

Now I just need to get some other parts (I broke a shock cap) and enjoy my new buggy.

Thanks for all the help.

Sorry, forgot. 25.2mm is what I get which looks very similar to the measurements you gave for yours. Thats odd.

Same here.. They posted the EOS carpet sheets that I could care less about. I want to see their Clay OCRC sheet.

I notice Lee Martin tends to post setups when he's won the event. Perhaps whilst he's waiting to find a setup that he's comfortable with the new car, he wont post. I think thats fair enough.

He did win one of the 4wd rounds at the Reedy Race. Hoping that's enough of a "win" to get him to post it.

Maybe somebody can lean on them. Lee, Marc, Shin, or Carson could share and help us out a bit here in the land of the TLR 22-4.

I talked to Carson a little bit on the Saturday before the Reedy Race, the only info I got from him was, on that day, for a minute, was running Yokomo 450cst front and back 1.6 front and 1.7 rear and 1.3 sway bar rear, none on the front. When I saw the car on the track, it was dialed to me, maybe not to him. I looked at his car in passing and noticed his battery was all the way back and his speedo was mounted rite in front of the battery. I wish I got to look at shock placement and front and rear camber link heights, lengths and positions. All I'm looking for is a good place to start.
