Oh. One thing you will not have noticed is the prop shaft. This is a shortened TC3 carbon one. Very easy, very light and totally effective. Haven't had any trouble with it at all.

Can you still get hold of the Carbon TC3 centre drive shaft? I've heard people say that AE have stopped doing them.

Howdy folks,

Johnbull: Very nice car! btw, still waiting for a PM back from you about my buddy's SD...


All: some misc. comments:

- I disassembled most of my yoke this WE... Square Ti bones are completely worn out... I switched back to the original steel bones... never again...

- Front one way "spur" (sorry, I don't know how to say it in english, but I'm sure you understand what I mean) was chewed up... I guess I should have heard the noise... and used some more shims on the one-way

- removed the grease and oiled most bearings... Car has a pretty nice free-wheel now... if it weren't for two messed-up front wheel bearings. I guess I'll try another brand that yokomo's. They are crap... I'll try acer's teflasonic, they're fine on my 8th scaler.

- Practiced tonight (it's GMT+1 here)... here's a copy of a post I made on Toso's thread... maybe you guys can advise too?

Thanks!
Later,

Paul

Hey Chris,

Paul from switzerland here... I'm looking for some advice on setting up the SD... I'd appreciate if maybe you could help.

I'm running the car on carpet with rubbers, in the 12turn class.

Basically I'd been fighting the car for a while to get more initial turn in. I had always run the rear tower up front, the car was always easy, but kinda slow in the technical sections. I figured out I'd try the stock front shock tower... and then, suddenly, the car has agressive turn-in! cool, I think... The problem is, the initial turn in response is awsome and allows me to position the car very nicely into the turns (tight indoor track), but in the apex the car has a strong tendency to "dive", ie the front tires suddenly bite really hard, and, ultimately, spin-off if I let the gas off a little too much.... It is also unstable in the chicanes, towards the end. In both circonstances, I gotta be *very* careful in carrying speed if I don't want it the become *very* loose...

On power behaviour is just fine, the car has plenty of steering, just like I wanted.

I've tried several things to tame down the car mid-turn... reducing rear droop, reducing front camber intake, increasing rear camber intake... I'd like not to loose the initial turn in response. Can you please help?

Current setup: 35 oil ll and #2 pistons all around, stock springs front, second hole from inside on A-arm, rayspeed yellow rear, outside hole on a-arm, front shock tower, one way, short wheelbase, front droop 5mm (underC-hub), rear droop 6mm, long front camber link bottom lower hole, rear camber link bottom lower hole. Stock ssg chassis, no lower ssg plate.

Thanks much!

Regards,

Paul

Lonestar, try putting the silver or copper front sway bar on. This should take away that mid corner hook.

a) Are they worth getting in comparison to the original if so why?

b) With the old set i take the seals off and clean regulary, do you have to d othe same thing with ceramic bearings.

Question regarding the overseas version of the SSG-SD in comparison to the US version.

All I see different is the overseas version has the one way included. Am I correct in thinking that is the only difference in the kits?

Im really interested to know. Also, should I go for the Rayspeed Chassis Kit or wait till the CGM upgrade for the SSG-SD comes available.

Thanks!

a LHS called yokomo usa and got a reply saying that they will ship out the CGM conversion kit as well as chassis kit anytime this week, maybe you can wait a while to see if the CGM is good for you b4 you make the move

As Randman pointed out, it is much stiffer than the black chassis/upper deck..
