Good enough for me to still win races with after 3 years of ownership!

It is not in fashion and parts supply won't get any easier but it is fundamentally a well designed and built car with one of the best shaft drivetrains on the market.

Plus you can always upgrade it to an LCG if you think that is necessary.

LCG conversion kit is pretty costly and there are probably not many left on shop shelves. Only worth it if you are a true top class driver.

Wink tommy kramer edition

a local, here at the gate, has just brought out a version of the lcg car to race in stock foam (carpet). since he brought out it out a few weeks ago, he has won every week, over team drivers from corally, schumacher, and losi, who all made the a-mains at the carpet nationals last week, in stockton. his car is awesome.

Yokomo Japan seem to be having problems supplying LCG's at the moment, mine has been on order going on 6 months and it still hasnt been shipped to our distributor..

Good thing im not in any hurry to get the kit

I have an lcg and an ssg sd. they are both very good cars. if you put heavy duty arms on the sd like the lcg has it is extremly durable. the lcg is a very smooth car that has all the adjustments you need and handles great on carpet.

I've noticed a bit of talk about the SSG car lately,anyone still use the CGM?
I raced my SSG for several seasons and my son used the CGM.He has now discovered girls so RC is forgotten.Meanwhile I pinched the CGM from him and have started racing that.I have to say that to me the CGM is far more responsive and a easier chassis to setup.Anyone else find that?

sosidge: thanks for the reply, will mount it on the servo then.

The CGM is still a good car! With regards to the LCG's supply. It's a bit slow, in our LHS we still have one left.

I think this is because only one company makes the aluminum stuff for yokomo. which is TEAM SUZUKI. Which is the reason why up to now there are still no Aluminum Knuckle Arms availale.

And maybe they are busy making the aluminum stuffs for the MASAMI BD.

i don't think there are more aluminium pieces in the masami BD, see the latest issue of RC World or RC magazine and you'll notice that the major difference is the white belt and ti screws and maybe shock tower also.
The rest are pretty much the same
