for those of you who run outside on a lower grip track, this is the mod that Lee Martin used in Reims at the Euros in 2018

Since I had to order the yz2T front shock and the new LCG trans from overseas, I ran a club race with the new lower shock towers only. Buggie was not much better just a little on certain parts of the track like the whoops. When I got all the parts in, the car came alive. so much faster in the turns. I ran personal best lap times and qualified directly into the A main. I could not be more than happy with this new setup.

I will ask in the Facebook group as well but for those that do not use Facebook. Do you have the set up that was used with this??? I am hoping to start the outdoor season next weekend using this idea and having a set up would be awesome.
Thanks in advance

I didn't know what to expect just that I hoped it would make the car a little better. I just haft to say that I am extremely happy with this conversion. It totally changed the handling for the better. I set personal best times and was able to hang with the fast guys at the track. More corner speed and handles so much better. I couldn't have been more happier. I cant wait for next race day.

For all current YZ-2 Series vehicles, these parts are needed to do the conversion:
Z2- 302TLC-LC Transmission Case
Z2-302CT-Gear Box Cap / Diff Height Adapter for YZ-2T
Z2-304T-Aluminum Motor mount for YZ-2T
Z2-300RFT-Aluminum Rear Suspension Mount (Front) for YZ-2T
-2mm front and rear shock towers.
Front shocks from YZ2T used in the rear.
YZ2T battery conversion

Z2-118T-Battery holder / Radio Tray for YZ-2T

I order from a person overseas from facebook. Lookup Bastien Garcia in the Yokomo YZ-2 & YZ-4 group. I got a set of towers from https://factoryfoote.com/
as well.

With the way Naoto and Lee run V3 on carpet and astroturf, this car may just put them further ahead of the field. Will this car mean Yokomo domination at the worlds??? Only time will tell...

Can someone tell me when a 25 degree front arm mount is needed. We run foam tires on Black crc carpet, I tried using 25 degree alum mount to try and lose some of the turn in, but steering is still way too aggressive. Running 17.5. I have the stiffest front sway bar and hardest associated front spring and it still lays over on outside front tire so hard, the inside rear comes off the ground.

Also maybe some ideas on how I can free up the front end would be great. I just have way too much steering. Gone Bananas foams are the tire they run and rubber are a good half plus slower per lap. Many have good drivers have tried to get rubber up to speed and all have failed at this track.

I run the 25 degree bulkhead and then adjust the caster block inserts. I don't have any experience with foam tires. I would go thicker oil and softer springs to calm the front end down. Also add weight strips under the servo instead of running the heavy steel bulkhead. Your stiff springs and swaybar setup is probably acting like a pogo stick under hard cornering

The reason I am running the stiff front set up is due to the fact that the buggy would immediately spin out with even minimal steering input with softer springs and sway bars. I have tried stiffer oil as well, but then it jumps horribly. Guess I will keep trying. Thanks
