Can someone tell me what the wheel base is on this car? how does it compare to the others 'TLR 22, RB6, B4.1 +8mm'. Also, do the TLR 22 shock springs fit the Yokomo Big bores?

The wheelbase is around 280mm. If youre wondering how the car turns compared to those other cars, i can tell you its got HEAPS of turn.

I sold my B4+8mm to buy this car a while ago now, and couldnt be happier.
As for the other TLR and RB6. both of those cars race in the A's with me I dont see 'visually' any difference in performance or turning out of the box.

Obviously driving these cars would give the optimum comparison.

I believe the springs do fit, but someone may need to correct me if im wrong there.

Cheers

The Yokomo springs rock, been running them on my B4 for some time. There very nice, and progressive.

the Shocks are 12mm Big Bore, so they all fit each other, TLR, AE, Kyosho etc.

Yokomo X BB's have a tapered piston as well, kinda like the GHEA's all the AE guys were running with the small bore shocks. Gonna get a set and put em in me AE BB's and see how i like em.

Contemplating getting one of these cars myself, they look very good, but i think they should of made this release with 12mm Hex drive all around. Thats kind of a binder for me.

Wheelbase on the 22 is 284 to 288 list on Amain, they have 282mm listed for the Bmax2

Does anyone know where one could find the "old" B-Max 2 with the better looking body?

Pro Shop Futaba in Japan has them. They are doing an amazing price that also includes the new mid conversion kit!

http://www.pro-s-futaba.co.jp/store/...ducts_id=29711

At that price they won't be in stock long.

Thats just for the cheaper RM buggy. If I translated right then you have to pay and extra 7000Y for the mid motor after receiving the buggy as the mail in gift card is in the package.

27000 isn't far off the complete kit

Having bought one I can assure you that is not the case

What is it you get with the kit? Is it the RM and MM?
Is it the one with all the bells and whistles or the cheaper one?

The website of the eastern European division of teamyokomo.eu (mibosport) has a nice "ups worldwide delivery" sign; maybe you should check it out!

I wish I could decipher that! It was in Japanese, and I could not find a way to get it to English. Thanks, though.

I was only able to see the MR and RS on this link. Maybe I was looking at the wrong part of the website? Thank you.

mes, I think I figured out the Euro division. Now I just have to figure out the currency conversion and shipping. Thanks!

Just write Michal Bok an e-mail. He was very helpful when I couldn't get hands on a standard B-Max4II for my son domestically...
