Restored 1996 Yokomo YZ-10 W.C.S. 'Mark Pavidis' edition with '97 shock absorber top deck conversion and machined, polished multi-piece alloy motor mount.
I believe the idea of the shock absorber on the top deck came from Yokomo's early 1/10th electric scale touring cars which used it as a tuning option to generate more front grip by allowing the chassis to flex. This then found it way onto the YZ-10 as an upgrade, and later on the MX-4 as standard fit. In the UK most racers binned the MX-4 flexible top deck right away in favour of a rigid part, which made the car more predictible to drive. I guess for the same reason, the YZ-10 '97 topdeck conversion is fairly rare in the UK.

Got ZD-733J kit of '97 shock towers and brace NIP to fit to this car when time allows, just need to find a pair of wheel adaptors to fit MX4 style wheels to bring it up to full 1997 specification.

wow, love the cars. The wheel disks look awesome, plus two mint unpainted yz-10 bodies are about the rarest thing you'll ever see on TC! If you have a repro supplier please let me know.

Nice Yokomo's. Love all the carbon. Would love to see a top paint job on those shells!
