2tenths - that tweak setting may work for you, but I disagree with it.

In my opinion... Droop should be set evenly on both sides. Any tweak you get from setting the car down with a screwdriver should be compensated for with spring-pre-load.

I felt that ...

pivot block and steering seems similar to XXX-S design

cam type motor mount is similar to TC3

by the look of it, it seems that the top deck might
be still usable on the cgm chassis.

If the chassis is graphite, I will be very keen to get one.
Thanks for the info. My dad printed out the instructions and I took a look at them. The top deck will definently fit, but it will only be able to mount on the front and rear gearboxes, not on the motor mount like in the kit. It may work on the steering too, but this would take some modification. The chassis is graphite, it's been confirmed by three sources (CML Distribution, Yokomo USA, Matt Howard)

Sleighty: On foams, I felt taking the sway bar off really helped keep the tires planted, however with rubber you may need swaybars to keep the car's chassis from rolling too much.

Should i start with both roll bars on or off? I dont have a large experience with them to be honest and I would rather not be chasing a setup too much in practise as I dont get too much time!

cheers

For carpet, you may even want to go with thicker swaybars than stock, depends on how high the grip of the carpet is though. I'd definately use swaybars F/R, it will help combat the traction rolling.

Just browsing eBay, and found this deal http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...category=34062
Definately a great price for what you're getting... just wish I could have found it before I paid double that...

Does anyone know the difference on a track between the black chassis and the ssg. Is there a big difference or not???

Not always so Randman, at the Region 12 carpet championships, yesterday, the two fastest cars in 19 turn, a SSG and a RaySpeed were not running rear swaybars and the grip was extreamly high. Yokomos qualified 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Yokomos won both stock and 19 turn.

Wow, on the carpet track we had down here for a brief while, you needed swaybars to survive on the track. I havent raced on any other carpet track, just kinda thought it was the standard for carpet.

Just follow the instructions, it's all there. The fitment of the parts is excellent on this car...

Default Yoke Sd Dominate 19 turn and Stock!

Sd's sweep both classes @ the Northwest Carpet Championships yesterday!As Pops said the cars were awsome!I was in the A for stock and wished I would have maid the changes that the winner of Stock made.He removed his rear swaybar and was absolutely on fire.He was so much faster the everyone else.If I would have just listened to his mechanic in qualifying I would have gone a bit faster and qualified better.After copying his setup change my car was 2 tenths a lap faster in the main! Go figure!It was freaking close!Lets just say to the nay sayers that say the Yoke with Rayspeed conversion is not good on carpet must not know how to set there car up.The rayspeed cars were fast.But so was Mo's ssg car in 19turn!Man it was a good day for yoke owners in stockton yesterday!Mo even did well making the show for Modified!Same with Jason E.Dialed.......

That's great to hear, I really wish that I would have been able to make it up there for the race, but conflicts with work made it a no-go. I'll be at the local T4T race next week, and we always get some good competition for these races, propably quite a few of the fast guys from the regionals will be down here, at least I hope... I need competition

The Epic Monster motors are very fast, it's the highest revving motor out there right now, so that's a good place to start. I run the GT7, but the Quantum Competition would be another good ESC to run. There are a few more out there, but I dont have experience with them..
