I like it to much, however I have been known to sell brand new builds, to give me an excuse to build another.

Another (micro) benefit is that the bleed screw hole is centered internally in the aluminum cap. On the plastic caps the hole is off-center.

Hey guys,

I am stuck between the Tekno EB410 and the YZ-4 SF. I know the Tekno has been out longer thus I am finding more reviews and information on it. I was just wondering if anyone has had experience with both and could help enlighten me on the durability of the Yokomo and the over all feel. I am actually incredibly lucky to have the following 4 tracks available.

Indoor high traction clay - Dirt Burners Racing
Indoor medium traction clay - RC Club House
Outdoor loose and loamy dirt - Family RC
Indoor Turf - Larry's Performance RC

I typically race at Club House becasue it is the closest to me and the largest of all 4 tracks.

I really can't decide which car to get as part support is fairly equal between the two brands.

I had the EB and still have a 22-4 and just bought the YZ. The YZ was purely an impulse buy and I haven't had it to the track yet but the quality is head and shoulders above everything else. Dont let the price scare you, you get what you pay for. The EB is a lot less but no carbon fiber in the car. I know its just aesthetics but the shock towers just make the car look cheap. I can wait to get the YZ to the track to try it. I think you will see parts support improved greatly in the coming months with the Yokomo team growing so much in recent weeks.

YZ is great. I durability tested it today.
No concerns at all. Very well built and great design.
I recommend it.

First time out with it. Setup is not there yet but it is going to be a really good car.

Question on servos. I’ll be running 13.5 on carpet. I’m leaning towards the the Protek 160T. It’s a low profile high torque and the speed is super fast. Any suggestions/comments other than a Savox?

Anyone here know how to set up the wiki for this thread? I think this car is going to be popular and it would be nice to have one place to look for some basic stuff since the instructions can be challenging for those who do not read Japanese!.

What should spare parts are you all keeping on hand? Plan to travel a bit to places that donít stock yokomo parts.

I read in another thread that the option to create wikipost is under Thread Tools. But I donít see it. Maybe I donít rank.

Maybe the wiki can start with decoding the suspension pill insert chart.

A guy I know locally had the EB410 and had nothing but trouble. I watched him shred 3 spur gears in one night. He bought a yokomo and hasnít looked back. I think the tekno is a good car but they have gremlins to work out. The yokomo is nicer straight out of the box.

Protek 160T is an excellent servo. Smooth , accurate, strong, fast. I have one in my YZ4 for 2 years and itís still g2g. Power HD newest full size servos are primo as well. Light for full size, strong fast, quiet, reliable etc. $75 from CRP, the look great with the black machined center core.
