Hey LOW ET, you are not using the top tesnsioners correct? If so how are the belts grabbing the pulleys and are you running mod, narrow rear pulley and belt? Also do you have the rear tensioner via below the layshaft set at its lowest point? I am assuming you run on lower bite conditions.

Thanks buddy

belt grabs just fine running mod with narrow rear pulley and belt. i set tensioners the way i feel the belts need to be set. maybe if the belts stretched out i would have to play with the tensioners but i'd probably just replace the belt for a tighter one, although i havent had this problem yet. i would say i run on high bite cuz i run on grass.

here's a pic of the belt setup. (the belt runs to close to the battery strap for my liking but it hasnt posed a problem yet)

Are you using stock sized tensioner bearings on the

Are you running stock sized bearings per the layshaft tensioners.

Yousah that's close. Some batteries have the connection port section taper down a bit lover than the rest of the battery which should provide more clearance should this ever be an issue for anyone.

i've changed lipos and my new one is about 1mm taller compared to the old one. i added the top rear belt tensioner (all tensioners at the loosest setting) to add more clearance and now there's tons of room. i'm sure no tensioner is needed with the taller lipo but you'd have to play with the wire and the angle it's soldered to the plug to get everything just perfect for the proper clearance. save time and do yourselves a favor and use the top rear tensioner.

Has anyone tried these new goodies https://www.amainhobbies.com/yokomo-...-415rs/p509096 ??. I was hoping for dcj axles but maybe these will be noticeable.

I have them on mine, I found the car went faster round my local track first time out with them. I can't say why they're better, the rear just feels nicer, without changing anything else.

That's good news. My yz-4 has driven really good this summer in the loose stuff. I thought I saw a pic of lee martins yz-4 somewhere with dcj's on the front? Maybe he made something work off a bd7 or somethin....

There are some dcj's coming for the YZ-4.

Think I saw somewhere, that it might be next month.

Bit annoying, since I just had to get some new fronts shafts, after a massive crash at the weekend & bent one. Found an upside down car on the straight at full speed, that no one had shouted out

Looooong straight + 5.0 Tekin, so going very fast

Yes, I have them and really improves the stability on the back end and really helps in rough bump conditions. Much better than the kit rear 62.5mmCVDs with long axle and spacer and hubs. I plan to put Yokomo front DCJ on and XRAY DCJ on the back as I don't think Yokomo is making rear DCJ at least they won't be releasing rears soon. I know Yok guys used Spec R XB4 front DCJ but needed to do a lot of dremeling to make work as the caster blocks are tad tight for free movement.

XB4 rear DCJ fit well on the YZ4 when using the new rear hubs. There about 1.25 mm longer than the new Yok 66.5mm. The tad extra length is not an issue.

Ran an 16 XB4 with DCJ front and back and do smooth. It's like having superior balance drive shafts that rotate so smooth and tightly. Jumping and landing is much easier.
