Randman I used the Paragon Liquid graphite that they made on my Yoke SD gears. It dries in like a minute and seems to stay on the gears very well. I checked my gears after a few runs in stock and they were still coated. Even after a few weeks of stock racing they were still good. I use that stuff on everything, dogbones, transmission and outdrives. Anything that I want to lubricate and not have dirt stick to I use it. Best stuff I used. I always have extra bottles and the shop normally keeps some on hand for me since I use it all the time.

Thanks MO!
I tried a setup similar to your carpet one (from the website) and the car is much better! Basically I softened the suspension all around, ran more down travel on the arms and layed down the shocks. I'm still running 70 wt shock oil, but am going to change it soon to 50, like you were talking about. I'm thinking about running the rear suspension arms all the way back. Right now I'm running them 1 mm forward from that. (3 mm shimming on front, 1 on rear) What difference is there if you run the rear arms all the way back, like on your setup sheet?

It is called Paragon Liquid Bearing. Part #41025 It runs about 6 bucks or so. Let me know if you can't find any. The hobby shops should be able to get it for you. If not PM me and I will try my shop to see if they have any in stock.

Cool, I'll see if SoCal can get some for me next time I'm up there.

2Tenths, thats great that it's working better now. Running the arms all the way back puts the weight more forward in the in car and seems to make it more stable. You may lose a tiny bit of forward bite, but who needs more forward bite on carpet..LOL

Evenin' all...

Here's a pic from Yokomo of the CGM special SD - Rayspeed-inspired steering setup, TC3 style motor mount, moulded shock towers with stand-up positions, but less tub bracing than the TC3 (not another Pro 3 I hope).

looks like a tcx-s3...W W....hopefully the chassis will swop easily with the SD
what kind of roll out are you guys running in stock and mod. I usually run my foams around 57mm. I'm running a 10 double and a moster stock. the track I run on is carpet and has a long straight away and is tight the rest of the way around.
I'm also looking for a good carpet set-up.

Wouldn't running the arms all the way back move some of the weight of the car to the rear. So you gain some rear traction while sacrificing some forward bite.
