I run my SSG with 86/34 using an Orion 23-turn. Speed and acceleration seems fine but after the run, the motor's too hot to touch, running on asphalt, so probably I have to use a 32 or 30 pinion.

Has anyone ever run the Yokomo CGM with the "shorter" front control arms from the Yokomo Worlds Edition car? If you have, how was the steering? "Pops" if your out there any input would be greatly appreciated.

No haven't run it on the CGM, but it did help with more steering on the BD.

I think Dodge Stratus or Mazda 6 is best for the SD...any other suggestions?

Yokomo Euro Truck vs Protoform Mazda 6 = big difference

Protoform Mazda 6 vs Protoform Stratus 3 = small difference, but a difference nonetheless.

It can, depending on the bodys and the track. I have found for my driving the body can make a material difference in my lap times. I usually run the 190MM Protoform Mazda 6. I have not run the Stratus 3.0.

Anyone here have links to some setups for the Yokomo Rayspeed? Syracuse, NY is finally getting a carpet track at Walt's Hobbys. Yay!!!! I can't wait to do some TC racing. I picked up my Rayspeed a few months ago thinking I was going to drive an hour to the TeamCRC track then gas went through the roof. Now I've got a chance to race it!


Anyway, does anyone here have some complete SSG rollers or SSG pieces they want to get rid of? LMK. I'm looking for some friends of mine. Thanks.

I also added SD-202LPL to the front steering rack. I will be trying the car out in the next few days.

Has anyone been able to translate the LCG setup sheets used by the factory drivers for Yatabe Arena? From what I can make out they using the SD A-arms (possibly CGM graphite), front and rear. They are also using the Tamiya TRF pistons in the Yok shocks as well, I believe. Can anyone advise further as would like to try this setup or something similar.

Will try and add some photo's.

Cheers
Calvin.

Where'd you get your 3M clear adhesive from? I'd like to protect the bottom of my chassis too since I'll be racing soon.

Cool 3M CLEAR ADHESIVE

ARIES 326
I purchased the 3M Clear adhesive from a motorcycle accessories shop, here in Australia. The sheet is big enough to do two chassis's and costs about $20 Aust. It can also be purchased in colours for the matching Bling Bling. Colours are Pink, Blue, etc.

Vortex,

See you got your LCG. Once I have some time will send you a copy of my latest LCG setup for asphelt netball court. Track is tight. My setup is for running STK.

Cheers
Calvin.

Aries326,
Try to look at www.yokomousa.com , then try click "set-up" subtab. There are set-up sheets used my M.Hirosaka at the Yatabe Arena using his SSG. There are some oether set-ups, too.
