Hey, I have a new kit that I would be willing to part with. I opened it to make sure everything was there. It was missing a body and nothing else. I have 2 bodies for it though now. Hit me up if you are interested.

I saw a FB post regarding running the buggy shocks and shock towers on the YZ-2T on indoor carpet. Anyone doing that and if so what has been your experience with that configuration? I wouldn't think the front shocks would have enough travel for the long a-arms but maybe I'm wrong?

maybe I should ask this in the T6.2 forum? I wonder if there is a way to update the YZ-2T set up sheet so that it reflects the updated parts from YZ-4 T6 etc.

funny I actually asked an AE guy who did that on his truck how what he did. h mentioned it wa spretty much bolting on buggy rear shocks and rear tower and then he said he drilled a spot on the a-arm about 11mm in on the inner most shock mount hole from what ir ecal.

As for YZ2T setup sheet, the guy who maintains the sheets on petitrc could probably be contacted to do some updates.

I still got mine sitting here that i need to put together that has the various updates that would be cool in a "TO 2.0" or whatever lol

Im doing the setup of my YZ2T for the 23-24' season, I have some T6.2 arms laying around, the main issue is the hinge pins, both are bigger and Im not sure how you'd adapt the front hinge pin inner block.

Also, the C-hub hinge pin inserts hole is too small for the T6.2 outer hinge pins (maybe CAL3/ SO are bigger ?) I'll test later with some parts I have for my yz2 cal3.

But in terms of length and position it looks perfect.

I have a bunch of spare arms and parts so its not too bad for now, but Im mostly interested in running a gullwing arm setup.

Did the AE guy indicate any benefits to the change? I'm debating trying it on my YZ2T but don't really have much of an idea on what I am shooting for

Sounds like it lowered the CG, so was able to get in and out of turns faster on high traction stuff. I have wondered to try it with the long 13mm yokomo shocks and a buggy tower on the rear.

If anyone has tips on how to increase traction on this truck, Im running on clay Jconcept Silver ellipse and last year I couldn't get the truck to hook, steering was really twitchy too...

Found out it has the aluminum carpet steering, so that might not help... I have the dirt rack on order and also the rear pills since they didn't come with the truck.
Also thought about trying the LC transmission case since I really like the way my YZ2 CAL3 worked with it on dirt.

Running kit springs, basically Mayfield CRCRC setup. But this year I'll have to switch it up because it didn't really work.

there are a few clay setups for the YZ2T here https://site.petitrc.com/setup/yokomo/setupyz2t/

I'm not much help as I haven't run on clay. The YZ2T that I picked up was set up for clay and had the LC tranny in it.

This is lovely , a part list to do the conversion would be awesome.

Maybe add the option for the CAL3 / DTM3 steering ? I know some guys drilled the chassis and the last chassis came pre drilled for it
