What tires have you been running? Run mini spikes or mini pins for rears and cut staggers for the front from schumacher. All the other brands are second best.

Daboots are okay....

Consider the original bmax2 mid mount. It will work on surfaces that the yz2 will struggle.

Having said that, I noticed you have a srx2 as well. I have one too, and its also a great car!

Or wait for the dirt spec xb2

Hi guys,

Need a favour, I'm looking for a slipper lockout for my Schumacher Cat K2. The shape of the shaft looks similar. Exotek make a slipper eliminator.

Can someone grab out their calipers and measure the width & height. Flat side & rounded side.

Thanks

I am using the Speedy's Racing Parts eliminator for the B4. Works and fits perfectly.

Understood, but I'm trying to workout if a lockout for the yz2 will fit a Scumacher cat K2. Measurements of shaft appreciated.

this is taken from a spare bmax2 top shaft I have lying around, which wouldn't be far off the yz-2 I gather
the 'flat' bit is 3.87mm wide ! !
the round shaft is 4.67mm in diameter ( )

as previously posted, I have also been using on and off, the speedyRC eliminator (the original that came out for the B4 that everyone else has copied)

these were made in the day of the B4's, and I'm sure the top shafts ran on 3/16" bearings (4.76mm)

You could possibly get any of these eliminators to make it fit your K2 with a bit of playing around. I wish I had a mill and lathe.....

The good thing about the Speedy elim is that it doesn't matter what size your 'flat' width is. As the eliminator is held down to the top shaft by two grub screws. The only issue really is the size of your shaft!

But even if your shaft is bigger (eg. 5mm), you can just drill it out. Since its 4.76mm anyway, its not much work to enlarge the hole to 5mm.

Personally I wouldn't do it for a gear diff'd car!

Anyway, back to the yz-2....

Just wondering if Lee had posted his world's setup anywhere?

Just curious as to what if any differences in setup he used.
