I don't trust the AE springs because most AE drivers I talk to, around my area, are running Yok springs on the rear and Kyosho on the front.

I just picked up a set of Yok springs myself to try.

Thanks for confirming. I'll see if I go that route of just buy an identically equipped CA when the need calls for it.

Anything else to consider? What gearing are people going with for 17.5t Is the Exotek direct spur mount a good upgrade for 17.5t? Thanks.
The Exotek part is pretty nice. Goes together without much fuss and is quiet. I like mine. On a tight indoor clay track I run a 69/32-33. Works well.

Ditto in my area on carpet/turf - the Yoke Yatabe springs are the spring of choice on most cars now whether it's actually a Yokomo car or not.

The DT version is a beast outside on medium to low grip. Made a few changes from the stock settings, man it's fast. 30 degree front block and 0 degree insert....I run 3mm Ackerman and most aggressive setting on the CF knuckle plate.... 2 degree anti squat and 0.5 hubs.

How much weight you have in the car? A shorty or full pack?

The only options on the YZ-2 are shorty or saddle/square packs. No room for a normal full size lipo.

What Yokomo springs are folks here using on high bite clay and med/high (OCRC), for the Yz2 laydown (or dirt).
