After putting the lightened chassis on my CGM, I feel that the car is more responsive due to its reduced weight. This is a worthy upgrade to look into. You may be able to get a decent priced piece on ebay.

You can also use the newer graphite Rayspeed Shock Towers that came out about 1 year ago. The only recommendation I would make is not to purchase the front tower, it does not work well. You would be better off just sticking with the newer rear towers for frt and back.

Default Shock Towers

I was wondering why do we have to use the graphite rear shock tower to the front? What aspects are going to improve to the performance?

Stands the front shocks up more for sharper steering response. As with all these parts, you don't HAVE to use them, but if you like the effect then go for it.

Sharper steering response? So, that's why Masami used the rear shock tower to the front. Now, another question....what are the advantages and disadvantages of having a front one-way diff in your SSG?

One ways increase corner speed at the expense of braking stability.

Ok just dug my Yoke out for use in the outdoor season. The drive train seems to have some tight spots in it. I have checked the diff shimming and thats ok it seems as if the bevel gear and the diff gear is rough but they are new.

Anyone got any ideas?

Thanks

Tim take the shaft out and the bevel gear that you have a problem with and push the pinion in with some force and you will find that you can move the pinion backwards and forward just a small amount Push the pinion in and it should get rid of the tight spots that you are on about hopefully

Default Re-lube

Is it advisable to put grease on the bevel gears, and diff grease on the ball diffs & one-way diffs? I am planning to overhaul my SSG and re-tune. Thanks!!!

No Grease necessary on bevel gears. Lightly coat diff balls with diff lube, for oneway bearings I usually use a quality bearing oil such as Trinity Royal.

Default SSG Conversion

Can I also convert my SSG to Drift version? What part should I replace aside from the tires? I'm using an Orion 23-turn motor..What's the ideal motor for drifting?

There are mixed opinions on this one, its an aluminum drive shaft, IMHO you are better off using the steel drives up front and the aluminum ones in the rear. For durability sake.
