Factory RC YZ-2 carbon fibre gearbox shim set

Factory RC have introduced the carbon fibre gearbox shim set for the Yokomo YZ-2 series of 2WD buggies. It allows 1mm and 2mm adjustments to the gear box height to change the CG and dog bone plunge angle on the car. For carpet the team often runs the gear box shimmed up 2mm while using the Yokomo Z2-304C-2 and Z2-018-2 pieces. This shim set can also be used without these parts on dirt/clay tracks to increase rear grip on those services that need it. The set is compatible with every version of the YZ-2 including the 1st Gen, CA, DT, and DTM kit. Set includes both 1mm and 2mm shims for the gear box, rear “CA” style brace, and waterfall shims all made in carbon look plate. 1mm or 2mm ball stud washers are used on the rear DTM mount for adjusting height. The addition of the water fall shim prevents bind up in the transmission assembly allowing for additional flex and grip.
