2tenths, hopefully it is good on carpet as it is on asphalt. You guys run on carpet right?

forty6 - Thats right. We are now running the indoor winter season 19T class on carpet with foam tires. I was a little concerned that this chassis might be too flexible for carpet, but I haven't run it yet to see.

I do know, however, that moving the battery forward (using the wheelbase adjustment) did help my old SD chassis handle much better on carpet, and I hope that this chassis (which moves the batt even farther forward) will help that much more.

Yeah, do let us know how it compares to the stock chassis with double upper deck on carpet.

I was considering retiring my Evo III Surikarn and trying a SD for a change but I have a few questions regarding the kit.

Firstly what is the better version to get, the SSG or the Standard Carbon Fibre. What I want to know really is Besides just looks Is there a difference in weight, stiffness etc.

Finally will a Novak SS System fit in the car without a struggle???

Thanks for your help.
I have the SSG myself and it is pretty stiff. I heard that the black one is stiffer, but I haven't driven one myself to know. As for the Novak SS, I have seen one on an SD although the guy did the 90 deg servo mod, and mounted his receiver on the upper deck. Just a note, he was also using a Futaba 9550 servo.

Yok racers- what is your take on the SD with a one way? Going to run on a very large sweeping track in two weeks for a regional race and have not ran a oneway in the yok. Going to be running mod sedan. Thanks for any thoughts.

Jeff

Default One Way

Jeff, Just installed a oneway yesterday and ran just a few howers ago. I know that it helped me carry more speed throughout the corners. The track seamed to be set perfectly for the oneway, very open with sweeping corners. I'm glad i went to using it, it seams to have made a BIG diffrence

No. Those are Kyosho 5.8mm ball ends. I had to dremel them a tad on their far edge to clear the diff case if I wanted to use the inner camber link holes.

I think I've got all the parts there, plus some others, just asking you guys for any opinions or to point out anything I have left out, as I don't have a SD (yet) . The only thing I have not listed are the turnbuckles and ball cups, as I could not find any part numbers for them, so could you guys please post them?

Thanks a lot, and again, sorry for the long post.

Trevor

Trevor, wouldn't it be cheaper to buy an SD kit and the RS conversion kit? Sell the SSG chassis to recoup some of your expenses. SD kits in you part of the world comes with the one-way already. Have you investigated this option?
