They only break if you crash! I've had the car for three years now and in that time I think I have broken 1x suspension arm and maybe 3x steering blocks (some through stripped kingpin threads, not actual failure).

Default Proper gearing

Hey guys! What is the best gearing for the SD SSG? I have a 64-pitch 92T spur. What the best pinion gear to use in an outdoor asphalt? I'm also using a 23-turn Orion Katana motor? Thanks!!!

Start with final ration 5.5. If your track is big enough and has long straight, you may lower the gearing to 5.3.

Basically he means a 39 tooth to 41 tooth pinion gear if you can't work out final drive ratio (fdr)

Everyone crashes. This car is fast but some cars are more durable than others. No one would say this is built like a pro 4 or fk05. For katana I start with 37/92.

Default Spur Gear

Can a spur from TA05 fit on the SD, since they are 64-pitched gears....?

Besides the usual, degrease the bearings, shim up/down the diffs, if you have the aluminum drive shaft, swap that out and get the carbonfiber one, saves on rotating mass.

Agree! Prop shafts from Team Bomber and the YOKOMO are very nice!
In addition, Ti Input shafts front and rear (Square) or the Aluminum ones from yokomo. I think they are available at SPeedtech.

And if you really want to lighten up your drivetrain- go Ti driveshafts and cvd's!

I have Rayspeed Towers 2 rears!!! For me the rear on the front is better.

Goodluck with the car!

i did a little trick of putting the CGM steering onto my SSG, and stuck the servo down in the same position as in the LCG to work with the CGM steering.
i found this made a really good improvement to the feel of the steering, and it has much less slop in it.

to be honest it wasnt my idea, Chris Grainger did it on his SSG and i spyed it and copied
