YOKS4-010A63 63.5mm front driveshaft
has it been confirmed tht the CENTER DIFF part works? reason I ask is the picture of the diff case looks diffrent than the all in one kit for the case? (that one has mounting holes it looks like for the spur)

S4-500MG looks like front or rear diff, not the center. The difference looks like the diff case and the gasket.

S4-504 is the center diff set, includes the required driveshafts etc. I would wait for this if possible, the price is much better considering driveshafts and diff oil is included.

There was a gentleman on the Yokomo facebook group that was advertising YZ-4 SF arms milled from a more durable composite material. I think he is currently running a group buy.

yeah aftermarket. Honestly other than the a-arms the vehicle has basically been a tank and I love its performance. Heck love it enough making a mini truggy out of one.

For what itís worth, I had my first outing with it last Saturday and since itís been five years since I drove a rc, I crashed and hit pretty much everything on the track...
Didnít break a thing...

Granted, Iím only running a 13.5 on a small very technical track, but still considering the epic cartwheels and whatnot,
I was surprised I didnít break anything.

I laid down some fresh paint this weekend. This car is an absolute joy to drive and work on.

Thank you, it's been about 5 years since I picked up an airbrush so my shadowing is a little sketchy. I wanted something simple that will look good going around the track.

good stuff and nice body!

To me personally I like the 13.5T Spec class as I feel it offers a nice entry point for people coming in to try the vehicle class and still feel competitive versus full mod.
