I have a crazy question, there is a nice little machined out area under the motor, is there a weight made to slip in there? Thanks!

Something that will fit and NOT look like a turd that is!
22T 4.0 finisher fits. Need to change hole locations.

the 22T 4.0 actually works better on carpet. Less front downright downforce keeps the front end flatter. But both are a huge improvement over the ice cream truck body.

You wont regret it, just having the front end not dive off power in turns is huge.

Default YZ-2T Questions

Our track has switch over to carpet and i'm looking for a stadium truck. The track hobby shop supports the Yokomo, parts on hand. He has presented me with a good deal on the truck. I have always ran TLR and Associated. I don't know much about the Yokomo. I appreciate any feedback you can give on the truck.
The +s and -s of the truck?
How durable are they?
What extra parts or upgrades do I need?
What all is needed for the truck to run on carpet except the gear diff?
How does it compare overall with the TLR 22t 4.0, T6.1 and the XT2c.
I appreciate any input.

shot you a message. in general though for carpet these would be things at a minimum I would do / get:

- 87.5mm dog bones
- gear diff
- do the battery tray extra screw mod
- different springs and spring cups (if needed). I used AE springs and spring cups

That would get you going basically. I also liked the aluminmum ball stud mounts and steering rack personally.

Truck was absolutely amazing, I was not wanting anything! Had plenty of traction and steering! Pretty much box stock except I switched rear shocks to back of arms.

This is by far my biggest complaint about this truck. The stock body just makes it feel bumbly with weight transfer, especially up front. I'll order a new JC Finnisher body for it and see how that works.

The Xray body did little better than the F2 and Enforcer. Again, the front section cracked after some really minor impacts. I begin to wonder wether there is an issue with the body mount. We'll give the Finnisher a try when it is available in Germany and reinforce the nose with ShoeGoo from the start. If this body also cracks after a day of practice, the truck has earned a spot on the shelf, which would be a pity because it felt amazing with the Shin set-up and the shocks in the rear.

Default AE Shock Springs

Just pick up a new Yz2T and looking forward putting it on the track. I just have the shock springs that came in the kit. Sounds like the AE springs are the ones to run. Does anyone have some part numbers on what springs I will need. I'm listening if there is another option for springs. I appreciate the information in advance.
