Start with 2mm of lift in the front and 3 to 4mm of chassis travel in the rear.

Lift? Chassis travel? I don't really understand, I'm just using a Yokomo droop gauge.

Sorry I read it wrong, though you said you were running on carpet.

If you are running rubber tires on carpet start at 6mm in the front and 4mm in the rear.

When you run foam tires on carpet you need to set the droop differently.

Who is carrying parts for the SSG/CGM these days online? I've delegated my CGM to parking lot duty and need a few little bits that aren't in my bag o parts.... Speedtech doesn't seem to carry much Yok stuff anymore...

Most if not all hobby shops charge the suggested list price on parts. Usually only car kits are discounted by the hobby shops. I wouldn't worry too much about 10 cents here and there, as long as you can get the parts. I can tell you that sheldons has some parts but not a lot. Don't know to much about Allspeed Hobbies.

I assume you mean tight?

Make sure you dont have any flashing from the parts tree still on the diff halves - i recently built a new diff and had the same issue - i'd left a very small amount of flashing on the diff half and it was contacting the small cog on the shaft and causing a tight spot. Once that was gone the drivetrain was super smooth.

Make sure the small input gears are seated fully on their shafts.
