i love the cosmetic attention to detail on masami's car... green wheel nuts, red black and green wiring to match paint job... oh and look at that, papa hirosaka even has a bright green lighter for team spirit!

Peter- .9 is for Nimh and .1 is for nicad. The front of the box tells you what each setting is for but I do wish the instructions were in english

yeah, i see that now, but when you also look at the box, the tray that is pictured has white lettering that reads "bi-polar operation" or something like that. but when you open the box, there is different writing on the actual product. so unless you can read japanese or you stare at the box for more than a micro second before you tear into it this is a,so something you would not know.

the only reason i found out is that i called robert itoh to ask.

Rick,

From what I heard, the black SD should be a little bit stiffer than SSG version.
Some guys prefer black SD to run on carpet with foam tires.

I don't have the black version but what I can say is I like to race my SSG SD without the lower deck on asphalt because I want more flex.

Masami seems to be doing fine with his GSG (Gold Surface Graphite) which is basically the same as the SSG, except for it's gold not silver. Jonas Anderson placed 2nd in the LRP Touring Masters, beating the all the big boys, with only 3 days with the car when it was first released. If I am not mistaken, that was on carpet. So you can't really go wrong either way.

i think that the only time that the black chassis might be the advantage is running on high traction carpet with foams (or any surface that will provide similar grip)

they silver is indeed softer, but if you are runing on asphalt i really think that it comes down to personal preference. i personally run the black version as i have posted before becuase i like the look better than the silver.

I still haven't had the chance to run the car on carpet yet, my local track's (close to me) won't be open for about another 2 weeks... I'm wondering if the flex is going to be an issue, it's also just stock motors and a very tight track so I'm thinking it isn't...

All cars flex... Just tune the suspension to compensate...

I also race (well, hug it up because of an injury for now) sportbikes... The manufacturers were making the frames stiffer and stiffer... Now they're going back to frames that flex again...

Anyone come up with a good carpet starting point yet?
