Default Yokomo YZ10 Roll Call

Hello All

Just had another great time with my 94 YZ10 at my local park. The park grounds are built on well manicured golf grass so I guess I am driving on a high traction surface. My micro poin tires seem to have a lot of bite.

I had kids, including my own, chasing it around for about 30 mins...the moms loved me because they were well worn out by the time I was done leading them around. I ended the run with an epic roll but lucky for me the car is a tank and there was no damage.

I got a lot of interest so I showed quite a few of them what was on the inside and they enjoyed that too.

Setup (I mainly fly aircraft so I used some of my spares)


JR9411 Digital MG Servo
Kontronik Jazz 40-6-18 Brushless ESC (set to car competition mode-fwd only with proportional brake)
Tekin 10.5T Redline G3(21T Pinion/87 Spur)
Graphine 5Ah 90C 2s Lipo

How many of you are still running/racing this car?

Tamiyadan, what did you like about the Yoks?

Great pics of the YZ and the MX in the trophy case.

Tamiydan,

Great write up. With all of the fan boys of the YZ you never hear these types of reports.

I am surprised that it required so much extra attention to make it though a race.

Maybe you implied this in your last response but just in case it wasn't what is your opinion of the 94 YZ10? Some say it's the most durable variant of the YZ and possibly easiest to live with.

I haven't lived with mine for a long time but I have taken a good bit of it apart for service. I have always been concerned with the open diff but I don't really race and I clean the car after each run so hopefully they last a while.

My brushless setup is hard on the rear belts; lucky I found an alternate source that is working great. The belt seems a little thicker but does not rub on the rear bulkhead.

In your opinion what is the best vintages 4WD car to live with?

I now have three 94 YZ10's. One is a mint shelf queen; the 2 others are runners.

I figure staying with one type of YZ10 will make it a lot easier to live with. So far I have found this platform to be pretty easy to drive and very durable. I also have a XX4 WE and its a cool frame but man I have no idea how anyone makes it through a race with that machine it looks very fragile compared to a 94 YZ10 (though no one can argue the 2x worlds that were won with the XX4).

Had to wake up this thread again as I just purchased a yz10 94 Parts car and a 95 Pavidis. Already have a 94 with fibrelight towers and top deck. Plan on running the 94's and shelving the Pavidis. If anyone is ever selling a 94, pm me. Also keen on completing Yokomo legacy with a mx4. Know they were a handful to drive, but they sure look pretty.

Back in the day this was the 1st car I ever won a 1st place trophy with so it has to be good. Sure it was a B main with 4 cars two of which crashed out, but to 14 yr. old me I had just won the World's.
