I just got my suzuki knuckles dropped today, I may have gotten speedworlds last set...

Anyway... Can anyone give me some set-up tips with these? I know the trail on them is a little shorter, what can I expect?

We have one corner at my local track where everyone is breaking stuff... If you don't have a perfect spot on the drivers stand you kinda run blind...

oh! I know very well who Frank is. since he used to work for LHS (Hobby people), and I raced with him 2weeks ago at SoCal. yes, his paint job is awesome !!

so,I already saw your nice chassis that you posted, now I can see the sway bar is bended. thank you very much!!
by the way,,, what is that Red aluminum stuff (there're 2pics) that holding rear sway bar??where did you get those parts??

I think youve got a different Frank in mind, dont know that he worked at Hobby People...

The rear swaybar is secured by aluminum collets to center it.

I guess that would be the same Frank, I didn't know he was even racing anymore...

You wont need the collets for the stock swaybars, they wont do you any good.

that's what I thought so I've just done the mod you did.

concerning Suzuki parts here is the answer from Nao (Rainbowten):
Quote:
Yes, SUZUKI has not produced any items since thier first release. Therefore, we have not received any supplies since then...

We are not sure if they would re-issue these items again.

I need the collets , since I'm trying to put longer sway bar on both front and rear. holding part of long sway bar is little wider than stock one, so I need something like the collets to hold it, just like you did it.(also MASAMI did it)

as you already know, I still have hard time writing(typing?) English, speaking as well, sorry about that !!

I have some more info about the CGM chassis car. It is a graphite chassis with the other parts being graphite as well. It's supposed to be as stiff as the regular black SD, but you can add a top deck to make it even stiffer. It "might" be in the states before christmas. It should be in the price range of the FT TC3, right around $250, we'll have to see on that one though. There will be a conversion to turn your regular SD into a CGM one.

Thanks for the update Matt, where did you dig up the info? Do you know if the conversion will include everything that the CGM kit will include as far as updates?
