The car comes with standard steel screws.

As of now, there are no blocks to change kickup or anti-dive, but you can just use washers to space them to whatever height/angle you want.

Thats what I said before. The new brace may not look the best, but its functional. Those flat straps simply don't work very well. The holder needs to have those scallops on it to really hold the cells securely. Besides, considering that the battery packs these days far out weigh the micro electronics that are meant to offset them, the last thing thats needed is a heavy aluminum brace.

Now if Yokomo could come up with a SSG plate with scallops on it(see Schumacher Mission's battery brace) then that would be a whole nuther' matter all together!

Yes the regular battery brace has them in there. Thats why it will work well. But some people wanted to know why Yokomo made the new "cheap" looking brace instead of using the aluminum one from the SP.

And the aluminum brace DOESN'T have the scallops. Thats what I was talking about. Thats why it wasn't used.

I figure I will probably just end up taping the battery pack down whenever possible. That's what I've done on the Evo III.

Ewwwww.....taping batteries in!

I only tape batteries in if the chassis doesn't have a battery brace and theres no way I can make one! And even then, I'll try to use some kind of velcro strap!

OIC...

I'm sure some after market manufacturer will come up with a scalloped aluminum battery brace...along with other option parts for the SD.
I could see a ton of blue aluminum options parts coming in the next few months...

Yeah, I can see someone making a brace. Its funny though, there were a lot of aluminum braces made for the TC3, but only like 1 or maybe 2 of them had the scallops on them. Most were just flat.

Personally, the brace that comes with the kit really isn't so bad. Although, as you could probably tell, I'm a big fan of the Mission's brace and would love to see Yokomo copy it in SSG.

Great job on the Set-up sheet...
I wish other manufacturers would do an interactive version like yours..

I think the flex of the SSG chassis is brought out in carpet racing with foams. The amount of grip you get on a high-bite track is huge, and it takes a very, very strong chassis to stop flexing. The Losi and Associated cars seem to do very well in this setting, while the Yokomos, Schumachers and X-Rays seem to have more difficulty in staying consistent. This definitely goes along with the results we saw at the ROAR Nationals (which is also where Chris was using the multi-deck MR4TC SSG car).
