I too could use a tried carpet setup...

Does anyone know how the springs for the GT4 rate in comparison to the standard springs for the SD?

Are the Gray GT4 springs significantly stiffer than the Orange springs for the SD?

I have Assoc. springs mounted on the car now, but I don't like the way I have to adjust the shock lengths in order to acheive a 3.5mm to 4.5mm ride height.

Also, I'm runnig TRC 26mm foams on a 90'x43' track.

Thanks,
Eric

This is my new user name, I've been posting under my dad's name, coolrcdad, but now finally have my own.

I tried to post my own setup sheet for the SD with rubber tires on carpet as a jpeg but the file was too large for the site. If anyone wants this setup sheet, send PM and I will send it to you. It is about 1 MB I think. If anyone knows how I can use the rear shock tower setup sheet as a pdf, I will be able to post it as one, but I don't know how.

Apparently (last I heard anyway), US version sd's have a ball diff in the front. Asian version (including Australian sourced cars) sd's come with the one way diff in the front (what I have found to work best most of the time).

All the GT4 springs are a stiffer rate, the Grey's are about 70% stiffer than the Orange, according to CML's chart.

The ones that you can clean out are the large diff one, just remove the rubber shield, clean and put ball bearing oil inside.

Thanks for your reply. Should I remove the front or rear input shaft shim?

Thanks

Here's my carpet setup on CS-27s. It's kinda hard to read, but at least it fits on the website.

Thanks, that what I needed to know, I think that I'll go ahead an order the GT4 springs. I run primarily run on carpet, that's why I want the stiffer springs.

I'm using Assoc. springs now, but I think that I'd prefer to use the shorter yokomo springs, mainly because I don't true my foams down out of the box, unless I'm having traction rolling problems.

Anyway... Thanks, Eric

What's CML address?

Just building my SSG SD and noticed when i turn the spur gear by hand i get alittle wobble on the input shaft to the front gearbox. Also feels like the mesh is going alittle tight on the front ball diff as this happens.

Is this normal until the drivetrain beds in or is there something not quite right. I have built the car 100% to what the manual says.

Here is a pic of where i have got too so far.

That seems to be the case, my car was the same until I actually put power thru the drive-train.

When I first got the car I built it just as the instructions pictured, but now I realize that their shimming is off. I don't know whether you want to take your gearboxes apart again, but if you do, you should spend time finding the proper shimming, not simply the one in the instructions. From my experience, the shimming should be done in such a way that there is a little backlash between the gears, and when you rotate the the gears slowly by hand, you can feel no binding. Another thing to look for in the shimming, is shimming the gearbox so that the gears make a minimum amount of noise. I tried several combinations until I found the smoothest, quietest setting.

I have a question of my own. Does anyone have any luck running a gear additive to their gearboxes? Whenever I use something like White Lightening or Krytech, which are both parafin based, they leave a waxy build-up which eventually binds the gears. Is there anything out there which is thinner but works?

I never had any problems with binding using White LIghtening.
Are you letting the grease sit overnight on the gears so it can bond and be absorbed.

When I built my SD i sprayed all the bearings out and then relubed with WD-40. Then I built the car as per the directions. I did use some Paragon Liquid Graphite on my gears. It only takes like 2 minutes for it to dry and then I put the trans together. I then just ran my car like normal. After a run or two the gears where all ran in and the drivetrane is free and very smooth.

Where can we get some of that Shooter alum parts from? They look trick.
