If you're talking about the rear outer hinge pins of the YZ-2T yes they are 2.5 mm. I shattered a rear arm tonight that let me get in there with a calipers to check it

Been back in this hobby for about 2 to 3 months after about 30 years away. So my driving skills are far from top-notch. That said I'm having a heck of a time getting my yz-2t to handle good on a clay track. Can anyone steer me towards a setup that will work for a driver whose skills are average. I know about the stuff at Pettit but I think what works for pros and what would work for me is likely to be completely different. Basically as of now it goes nearly vertical nose up over the jumps yet the rear end tries to come around in almost every turn. I know I need way stiffer in the rear but won't that cause even more oversteer? Does anybody run sway bars on clay? I have an AE T6.1 that I'm thinking about selling but only if I can get this yokomo to work better for me first. Thanks in advance

I have four photos to send but for some reason it wouldn't let me send all four so I'll send two and then two more. I bought this as a used roller and have not yet opened up the shocks. So I don't know what pistons, spacers and oil are inside and the springs don't seem to have any markings to identify. I think before anything else I need to get the shocks to a baseline set up. Also the steering blocks are not from the kit. I replaced both sides when I broke one. I think they are from an earlier version YZ-2. They are longer so they have less room for spacers up and down. Also they are graphite or carbon fiber can't remember which. I'll be changing back to the original kit parts when I fix the broken suspension arm. The caster is set the same as what the kit instructions show. I think 30. The pictures show the aluminum steering setup with the +2 bellcranks. At some point I'll have to decide if this truck or the T6.1 is going to be the one I stick with. Unless there's some logic to keeping one for clay and one for outdoor dirt. Thanks

the kit springs don't have any markings and I don't recall them even really stating what rate they are. I think someone on facebook measured them though so they may be on the big bore spring chart on petitrc.

The steering rack you have I think is the DTM 2.0 one which from what I recall is the good one if you don't want the car to be too aggressive. The car I bought came with the CAL2 rack instead, works well enough on carpet but the previous on I had I like the DTM 2.0 rack as well.

Personally as for team driver setups, I usually found ones from Joey Fisher to be good for mere mortals like us lol. His setups from my experiences in wheeler and 2wd buggy usually feel very driveable and stable.

This one may be worth looking into as a starting point. Not sure on your traction conditions, but I could see maybe doing the shocks to the front if the a-arms initially for the rear., and maybe not mod the pistons initially. Springs in general I just use AE V2 ones but I mainly run on carpet / turf now.

Picked up a nice used truck that was run on carpet. New to this truck. I'll be on high bite dirt/clay (Primes). This truck has the steel front mount/bulkhead, ESC and battery weight obviously better suited for carpet. Anybody run these weights on clay? do the ESC/battery weights (in general) help with traction. I'll have a 13.5 in it. Thx

Aluminum DTM2 steering rack I would get. Spare a-arms are good to have, boil the stockers helps there a bit. If running carpet get the LC tranny case. Also as with the other cars, look into a different battery retention system or use the dual screw mod so the battery holddowns don't flex the battery out.

Won't be racing on carpet. Only door clay and outdoor clay/dirt.

Thinking about buying the finned aluminum shock caps for my yokomo truck and buggy. Yes I know they will not make me faster. Just like the looks of them. Thing is I already have the hard aluminum standoffs. Anyone know if it's okay to run aluminum on aluminum in that location? Or else I guess I could put the plastic standoffs back on but would rather not of course. Cheers
