I'm assuming that's 48 pitch...what's the 64p equivalent? similar to the TC3's? 98-100T?

What kind of bearing are included? metal, teflon, rubber shielded?

rc-zombies, yes, that is 48 pitch. I run 64 pitch myself. A 94 tooth spur is just a tiny bit smaller than the 70 and a 95 is just a tiny bit bigger than the 70. I have a 95 tooth Xenon Perfect spur on my car. Most of the bearing are metal shielded but I think the large diff outdrive bearings were rubber sealed. I'll have to double check when I go through the car later this week.

Mo..

Sound like the car is very durable after your hard crashes...
no problem with the diff gears stripping like they encountered with the EVO3?

Can't wait to get mine..

OVA, I have never seen an EVO 3 up close, but from what I've seen in the magazine, it looks like they have all the same adjustments.

rc-zombies, yeah, the Xenon spurs are great. As for stripping diff gears, I didn't have any problems there. The only time this car was pulled off the track was when the battery was dead.

The EVOIII Cleaned up at Yama Yama this year... Only one Yoke there this year in the top 10 and I think that it was 7th or 8th and that was the MR-4...
I belive that Masami Still is Driving the MR-4....or at least thats what the sorce at Home in Japan is Telling me .... also The SD has had a few problems with the front diff gear like the EVOIII but it's not as bad as the EVO's problem...also a couple of front diff cases have cracked where the Shock tower mounts ..
I hope that this isn't as bad as I think...I don't want mine to with these problems..??

I wouldn't worry too much about stripped gears. Like I said below, I ran 30 packs through mine this weekend and not 1 problem and no signs of wear on the gears.

Mo/Matt

Did you have to add extra ballast on the electronic side to equal the weight of the batteries?
I did when I had my TC3...

Haven't checked out the weight balance yet. If it is, it doesn't seem to affect the handling on the track. The handling was very balanced on the track.

would you have to prep the SSG chassis (sanding, glueing) just as you would with a normal graphite chassis?

racer, yes, I recommend that you sand and glue all the edges.
