    YZ-834B SE Limited Edition

    Yokomo made this nice chain drive 4WD buggy at 1983 when Hirobo made 44B which was belt driven. YZ-834B was the 1st IFMAR winner at 1985. and we know who was the driver.

    the 1st version came with flexable Kydex chassis and rear mono shock. also with front mono shock as you can see.

     

    later chassis has a small bumper and batter chassis for race. but the material is still same. Kydex

     

    RPS SE’s fiberglass chassis is very hard and tweak-proof. RPS SE came with lots of improved parts like shocks, gears, axles, and nice tires.

    Delta and Trinity made the chassis as well. and this Trinity is still the best one to me.

  • imex and Yokomo Hotlaps wheels trick

  • I saw some 2.0″ imex disc wheels on ebay a while ago. the plain disc design was far from yoke Hotlaps aero wheels. but the structure itself looked pretty much same to me. it was 3 years ago

    then a close friend found me some imex wheels recently. so, i could build more 834B wheels from Hotlaps 2WD front wheels plus imex wheels today. it worked!

    thank you so much Aaron!

  • Hot Laps 834B front wheel hubs

  • Yokomo Hot Laps made nice wheels for 834B and RC10. and, there were a few more parts from them include the oneway wheel hubs. the header says it was made of magnesium which is lighter than aluminum

    the reason I got the hubs is the shape. the offset is identical to the originals. but Hot Laps hubs allow to adjust the offset by switching with the each side, right to left and left to right

     

    like this

     

    the offset is quite right with modern 2.2″ wheels
