why many ppl still favor the SSG than the new LCG?
i think my kit will come with optional chasis, lightened CGM
so is it still the same like the original CGM, only lighter?

The drive shaft is from yokomo, the rest are from other manufacturers. Go to www.speedtechrc.com this is a good supplier for Yokomo hopups and aftermarket parts.

It is just personal preference, I persaonlly feel the LCG is better. It is good you are getting the lightened CGM chassis, that is what I run. Lighter is always better.

The SSG is a very good chassis, very competitive and easy to tune....

Gearing depends on the track, motor and the driver. It's not for me to say whether something is "high" or not. Whatever gives the fastest laps for a whole race is the best gear ratio.
