Iíll check on the damper length later.

checked - 90.70 mm from end to end.

Setup the center damper so there is 0.4~0.8mm of pod droop. When set correctly the pod should be perfectly flat, not sagging down or pointing up. Just flat.

The Yokomo designer himself. Yokomo still has a strong 1/12th presence in Japan, but other countries not so much.

Is the mod setup sheet in the Starting Setup section on petitrc a good starting point for an YRX-12 2019 version? Also, what side springs come in the 2019 kit?

Has there been any rumors of a new YRX12 or was the 19 the end of the line?

I believe '19 is the last of the YRX12. Parts are still being made to my knowledge.

I'm new to 1/12 and have picked up a Yrx12. I can't find anyone with the rear bearing height adaptors (R12-20H) in stock and it seems Yokomo has none as well. Do any from another brand fit?

Those are the same as the Associated height adapters so you use Xeon, CRC and etc.
This place has them in stock: https://www.framega.com/products/r12...-hight-adaptor
