My Tweak Solution...

Remove centre stiffener.

Also, I now check chassis straightness by placing the car on 2 blocks on a flat surface, one under the front suspension, one under the rear. I used to lay the chassis straight onto the flat surface... but strangely, I found the car was still tweaked even when it looked flat on the surface, something to do with the flexiness of the SSG I suppose.

PS I bet I can guess how your car was tweaking - left rear of the chassis (opposite motor) twisting up?

I got very lucky with the drivetrain on my SD, I didn't have to do anything to it except remove 1 of the 3 shims on the imput gear in the rear gearbox. The car hasn't been run at all yet, and it spins for 15 secs with the tires on already Must have something to do with the Squat bearings

Mine ran very free and al I did was spray out all that nasty grease and just used a light oil and mine was actually very free. I did have the liquid Paragon graphite on my gears. I ran my car once or twice and it was very smooth and free transmission.

Anyone have any trouble with the ballcups under the bellcranks rubbing on the front suspension mount (captures the front hinge pins)? Did you guys just dremel the mount down a hair or am I a dork and am missing something??

Yeah. I had the same problem. It barely rubbed on my car, though, so I was able to file a little bit off of the ball cups, but milling the suspension mount is a better idea. Now, I just use the Rayspeed steering with a forward facing servo, and there's no problem anymore.
