I've raced against one at our local club when a certain yoke driver comes to test. Looks a nice piece of kit and certainly goes well.

The original availability date of the dirt version was a mistake at AMain. Yokomo claims the carpet version will ship beginning of march and dirt version will ship beginning of april. Originally it was thought both versions would ship beginning of march but that turned out to be incorrect.

I just looked into this more and Yokomo dates were either wrong or they pushed back shipment, but the carpet is set to ship end of march and dirt end of april.

I just look at Amain's list of what's different for the DT. Everything makes sense except the steering arm plate. Maybe something lost in translation?

YZ-2 Dirt Edition Updated Parts:
3 Gear Box for DT
Motor Plate for DT
Gear Box Support for DT
Rear Shock Tower for DT
Rear Upper Arm Mount for DT
Wing Mount for DT
Battery Plate for DT
Steering Arm Plate for DT
Standard Gear Cover for DT
Main Chassis for CA/DT

The steering plate difference makes sense. They are probably offering different ackerman geometry for dirt vs carpet.

Run a shorty and then if you need to add weight, do so with the under-battery weights to generate as low a CoG as possible.

Just heard some good news on the dirt kit and it may be here soon than expected. Also got confirmation both versions share the same chassis.
