i use my stock suspension on my black special, so i dont know what stiffness springs they are. i am running sway bars front and back and ive noticed a difference from when i dont run them. i have the same 2 degree toe and 5mm ride height, but depending on how smooth your track is, you could lower it a mm or so. i use hpi 31mm super wide radial tires and love them, but we dont have any rules on tires, so those might not work at your track.

not entirely sure since i run the kit as i got it (2nd hand). springs are yellow (don't know what brand), shocks are 3-hole i believe from the kit. i use trinity 30wt oil front and rear. might try 40/30 combo though.

i dont race stock so i cant tell you anything on that. i race open brushless. im running 30wt oil i nthe shocks, so i would think 30-40 would be fine. its a yokomo lcg, so chances are that it has stuff that is set for racing on it, so i wouldnt worry all that much about the shock pistons and stuff. worry more about grip, speed, handleing, etc. i dont mess with shock stuff other then oil weight and im fine with it. just my opinion though

Default LCG 2 ?

Thanks for all the tips guys, all the advice helps

Hey, was surfing the net for LCG info and came across an "LCG 2" on the Yokomo Japan website

As it was all in Japanese, couldn't undestand what upgrades are included, although I did see the previously optional 'long steering posts' in a picture.

Has anyone heard of it before and know whats new on it. Also, an link's to websites would be great !

it's probably a generically labeled version of the tommy kraimer car.

Default LCG 2

Hi Streetracer745. I initially thought it may have been 'fresh advertising' too...however then noticed it was labed "LCG 2".

I have since found another link in English, it seems it's nothing to get excited about after all . It now has a "stick-pack compatible chassis", rest is the same.

Here's the link, its listed amongst the new products.

Hey, I heard Team Bomer make a thicker LCG chassis, anyone seen it / got one ?

Thanks

Just out of curiosity, will the SD top deck fit on the CGM? How stiff is the stock CGM, as far as enough for foam or is there quite a bit of flex?

I would use the Rayspeed top deck, and yes the CGM is stiff enough for foam use. In the stock class it's a very good car, Cheap and fast. You can still find deals on them. A Rayspeed SD car is also good.

recently picked up some BD-500a aluminum diffs for LCG fron and rear diffs. I will be testing them out soon, heard that they notch pretty easily.
