Best bet is to wait for a promo code at Amain (maybe 10-15% off) or email Michal at Mibosport and see if you can pay him in his currency via PayPal.

Innline centered battery is only recomended for very high bite carpet etc. it takes away chassis roll and makes the car less edgy on this surface.
For dirt I would have run the battery sideways for more sidebite.
Hi,

Do you have a dirt setup you could share? what diff configuration are you using?

You can pay Michal in Czech currency.

Anyone know what benefits you could get from changing the rear aluminum suspension mount spacers?

You can raise the mounts up without raising the transmission . It gives more rear bite . I ran x4 of part # YOKZ2-300RS which raises the mounts 2mm and removed the 2mm kit plastic spacer above the rear rear mount . the rear front mount has plenty of clearance so theirs no worries .

I am sorry, got the car in November and we still have snow here in Norway. Will start testing on dirt arround May.
Now I use 15k front and 10k rear. I will start with that on dirt, but also try ball diffs as well.
I think Chris Sturdy has his dirt setup postet on www.petiterc.com, check it out, he is really good.

Hello from an xb4 guy. I ve been running on a private carpet track which me and some friends made in greece. I was about to upgrade my xb4 2014 to the 16 model but then... I cannot stop staring at the yz-4.
Could you tell me what are the must have parts to order along with kit as spares because here in greece we do not have a proper retailer who stocks parts for yokomo so i can make a bulk order? And also what should i replace right out of the box? If i go yz4 ofcourse. Xb4 *16 is a strong contestant on carpet but yz4 got me for the belt drive.
Thank you in advance!

x1 YOKBM-S172 x1 YOKBM-S162 x2 B4-412RH x1 YOKZS-011NM x1 Z4-630A x2 Z4-630F3 x1 YAS-700 x1 YAS-1050. cnc pistons as the kit ones do not fit good , Sway bars , carpet springs and aluminum front pulley for fulltime 4wd are must haves . If the aluminum front pulley is out of stock you can use Z4-630CR a rear plastic pulley up front .

shock rod ends break YOKBM-206 front arms break YOKZ4-008F and the clicker will break . If I lived in a place without parts support I would get the arms , rod ends and everything in post # 879 for a carpet setup .

Default Front bumper

Heads up for those who run on dirt or clay tracks, I would buy extra front bumpers. I was going to run my car yesterday at OCRC and the car had drag like I've never experienced before. It felt like I had binding in the center mount section. I removed the belts to see where the binding was coming from, it was in the front transmission. I was in the process of removing the front trans, unscrewed the front bumper and removed it to get to the four screws that go into the transmission and what seemed like a hand full of dirt dropped out of the front transmission. I think the front bumper needs to be made out of a stronger material that wont wear out as fast.
