The XXXS sold in an hour or so, I was going to buy a mill, but ended up getting a new car instead. I still want to get the mill, but it'll have to wait a little while.

I have the F/R shock towers left, $20 for both.

That propably would have been the smart thing to do, but I found a buyer for them instead

Besides, I can always play with the RS chassis on the mill

you should be able to lower the gearboxes.

Default Help Appreciated

Hello,

I was wondering if you guys could help me out. For the last two months, I've been going back and forth as whether or not to get this car. I've been reading the thread here, and on yokomo's site, and I have a few questions:

1. Are there any glitching problems with the yokomo chassis? I've read some folks have had a "graphite weave" enduced glitch...
2. Why are so many going to the rayspeed chassis set? Is the stock one inadequete for racing? Does the stock motor mount tweak the chassis that badly?
3. What all would I need to make AE Springs fit onto the SD?

Thanks,

Buddha

1. People have glitching problems with every car, I wouldn't say the yokomo gets them any more than the rest

2. People are getting the RS chassis because it's the newest thing out right now, the stock chassis is fine. If I had to choose between the black and SSG car right now I'd go with the black version. I noticed that the black shock towers fit tighly on the diff cases not allowing them to shift in a major wreck. On the SSG ones there's about a 1mm gap between the towers and the diff cases that can allow them to shift.

3. Rayspeed spring cups
