Moving the shocks moves more weight towards the rear of the car to aid in getting more rear traction for low grip surfaces, I've been using the YZ2 for a few weeks now on a low grip bumpy track with not a lot of success. I've tried a lot of things and really couldn't get the car to work really well. I switched this week to a B5M and went over a lap faster, maybe my setup was way off but I tried my own setups and even a couple different setups from yokomo but couldn't get the car to go great. In Yoks defense though I am not a great driver and I did get the b5M set up by a very good racer who knows the car. I am keeping the yok because I love the way if works on turf and carpet.

I am working with Factory RC to make a conversion (same thing factory guys did at the euros) that will improve the traction on these surfaces, stay tuned for updates...

Its free to back order them from Amain. I have a feeling the list keeps getting longer with the new buzz of its domination on outdoor dirt.

Is the YZ-2 dominating outdoor races in NorCal? I have not heard the buzz down here in the land of AE and poor manufacturing tolerances.

Now with recent information from Yokomo about the bmax2 transmission swap is giving us hope to have the rear traction of the bmax2 but the steering of the yz2. I am just waiting on carbon pieces and as soon as I have them will begin testing and finding out if it will compete with the dominate b5m.

But as a strick carpet/high bite machine, is it the "one to get"? Any additions needed or is it great out of the box?

Not many out door tracks in NorCal for 10 scale off-road! Maybe 3? Not every one who's any one has a Yokomo that is dominating! Every one who is some one has AE for its common morale, obtain ability.
