I've run the tobee main shaft in my mod car with no problems. How did you break a rear shock tower?

Shookie:

That must hurts~~~ Did somebody step on your car?? because that happen to me the other day.
now i have 1 front shock and a top deck to replace for my silver SD...
my drivetrain also binds up now.... more parts to buy

Tobee center is not bad as i run mods for fun, they don't break like a graphite one(duh!)
but they do bend when you crash full speed right into the wall(Yes, i have done it)

and i have finally finish setting up the servo in the Rayspeed chassi..
took me like 1 hours to do it.... i just sand the servo case a little and that fixed the problem...
i really don't want to sand it down.. but i was too tired... so i gave up~~

I need to take a break from breaking LOL. I just replaced a Rayspeed rear shock tower the day before.....SHEEEEEEEEESH enough all ready. Sorry Guys had to vent a little. Also should I go and get another grafite or should I risk the Tobee lightwieght?
Thanks,

You should perhaps consider the Tobee battery post, they allow you to set the height of the strap, batteries will be much more secured, the small Tobee battery retainer are nice too.

Talked to Stev @ Speedtec and it seems that Yokomo busy trying to get out the new Worlds kit but the new Rayspeed should be out right behind the worlds kits.

That question is too broad as well and it's a personal preference which one is better. I prefer the CGM on all surfaces, it's good on carpet and asphalt. Alot of other team drivers like the SSG on asphalt and the CGM on carpet. The CGM is heavier due to the chassis design but it's stiffer and the CGM kit comes with all graphite parts where the SSG comes with regular plastic parts.

ntc3freak:
the fact that the CGM is less prone to tweak is very important.
just to illustrate:
In PJ where we both live, almost every single car is a CGM. Most of the drivers drove the SSG but I guess we all agree that the CGM is better. THe only weakness is weight and it's a costly affair to fix that weakness.

unless of course you run 540 stock and it's under weight.

*sighs* it really was a pain having to put the lead in you know. :P

If your trying to save some money, some places are selling the SGG for $200 only. Where as the CGM is still at the same price.

Wow, $200 for SSG is a good price! I've been shopping around but didn't see that price anywhere. Where is it?
