Yokomo YZ-2 1/10th 2WD mid motor buggy kit

Yokomo introduce the all-new YZ-2 1/10th 2WD mid motor off-road buggy kit. Making use of the iconic “YZ” name the buggy is designed especially for today’s high-grip surfaces such as astro turf, carpet and sugared clay. By using a super-low centre-of-gravity motor mount and gearbox, the buggy features a dramatically changes balance, resulting in a reduction of traction rolls on high-grip surfaces and improved overall stability of the car. An redesigned steering with the bellcranks facing towards the rear makes for a more direct steering response compared to conventional designs and the hard-coated, low-friction anodised aluminium shock bodies lead to smoother shock absorbing movements which allows better driving characteristics.


Suspension geometry adjustments can now be made without the need of optional parts, by simply replacing the bushings of the front hub carrier and rear suspension mounts. Included in the kit are selected black-anodised  aluminium parts with chamfered silver edges for that quality look. The kit is rounded out by a newly designed low profile bodyshell with integrated gear box cover and optional venting holes when running in high ambient temperatures.
