At least it's minor and you got a lot of wrenching practice. Stinks but talking the positive thought process is always best. I have found setting pinion to spur mesh the hardest set up on the car. Using TLR pinions are nice as their bevel edges mesh underpowe better.

In the market for a 4wd... Looking at this buggy right now... How is the durability, performance, and parts support here in the west coast?

Awesome buggy. To be honest you do spend coin on the upgrades however it's well worth it.

Iit's quite competitive out of the box, I believe he meant that the upgrades you do end up buying are more expensive than other buggys.

AMain is the US Distributor for Yokomo so you can get most things pretty quickly

Scott is correct, as the wheeler is very competitive out of the box. For me to push it really hard on very demanding tracks I really like the Alu upgrades and CF shocktowers. L5 front a arms are nice as they are bullet proof.

The YZ4 has to be the funnest wheeler to air out as you can literally tweak the hell out of the car and land her smooth as silk. Check out YZ4 at Beach RC on you tube as there is a gent running a box stock YZ4 on clay indoor track and he just tears it up. Watch the control of while tweaking in the air.

And yes Amain has everything. One can also order from Michal at MIBOSPORT.
3 days to your door via UPS INT. Michal is awesome! Best customer service around.

Philip i am not positive on AE as I have never tried. For rears Zx5/6, RB6, SRX2, SRX4, 22-4, pretty much every 12mm hex rears fit. Obviously offsets will differ however havimg 12mm hexes front and rear really allows for lots of choices.

This question is very driver subjective. I like the yz4 steering traits more.
