First post here guys I've been out of R/C for 15 years (last raced a B3!) I picked up a YZ-2 from another member here and I have a quick question. As far as wheels and tires go what can I use other than factory Yokomo wheels? Will a standard 2.2 F & R off of a B4.1 work?

Thanks


*****Update. After reading the thread I now see that all 12mm hex type wheels as used on the B5 will fit.

For any interested... We are currently building a facebook group that will allow for ease of sharing information amongst the North American Yokomo drivers. Since we tend to have much different surfaces than the rest of the world this allows us to provide information between everyone quicker and easier.

I race at Team Deweys Hobby shop in Nampa . Its a high grip carpet track used for onroad racing Mondays and Wednesdays. On Saturday nights the offroad jumps are put out and their is a wallride. The fort Boise dirt track has reopened with a new drivers stand and jumps.

looking for some input on motors. I'm coming from a 17.5 to 13.5 short course and now ready to drink in sport mod w/ my yok. Any suggestions as I am leaning towards Reedy Mach 2 or Trinity D4 10.5.

When it comes to modifieds I constantly see Tekins having an edge. Motor wise I would go Tekin or Team Powers.

while I do appreciate your input in this thread, although some of your posts I do wonder why you bother with your modifications......this has got to be one of the dumbest quotes I've seen!

in regard to mod motors, how the hell do tekin motors have an edge compared to other mod motors? I find that tekin BS with their kilowatt ratings in their equivalent turn motors compared to other manufacturers. So on paper value, their motors do seem more powerful.....but not in the real world.

I'd say it's more of a preference rather that facts by anyone good or bad. I just happen to prefer another brand. To each his own. No reason to blow up about it though

I have a Reedy Mach2 in my YZ2 and I find it to be quite smooth, drivable and not lacking power. Never tried the D4 so I can't compare. But imho, the Mach2 is a good motor.

You're certainly assuming a lot here. We have no need to inflate figures to sell our products. Our mod motors are known to be stronger than comparable motors from other mfg's.

You will find our team running 6.5's where other companies are running 6.0s' and 5.5s in the same cars.

IF you haven't ran our equipment, don't make outlandish comments about it. We offer top quality racing components with customer service which is industry leading, and often second to none....so yes in that way we do offer an advantage.
