Hi friends. Greetings from Malta.

BEARINGS. From what I have been reading and hearing, there seem to be 2 schools of thought.

One the one side you have guys that will shell out for the most expensive - because they are the most expensive, so they must be best!!!!!!!!!!! A mistaken assumption in my opinion.

One the other side there are those that run the cheapest bearings but change them regularly. One of Britain's top - world class - racers confided to me that this is what he does. And his cars do alot of winning.

So, which is best. Put some dust in a ceramic bearing and it's shot. Put some dust in a cheap bearing and it's shot. I don't know what to say.

DIFFS. Do you guys run your SD diff crown wheels lubricated or dry?

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Mo, thanks for your advice. Won't a front roll bar actually rob spme initial turn-in?


Joe, I run them dry. It's my understanding that this gears's material is self-lubricating stuff. Extra lubricate would centrifugate anyway.

Still accepting setup tips from yall!

Thanks,
Paul

MO : I've broken one of these integrated balls for the sway bars, so I can't run it on the rear. Now my car was dialed with the bar on, but now I'm lacking initial turn in and having some on power oversteering.

How can I solve that ?

John : I run them dry, the delrin is self lubricated.

John I use the Paragon Luquid graphite on all my gears in my Yoke and now my TC3. It dries in like a minute or less. I run my car about 10 packs and stuff is still on. No extra friction with it and no mess. Dirt don't attact to it.

Cobra, try standing up your rear shocks or going to a harder rear spring. Also you can add some rear anti-squat. All of these things will give less side bite and more forward bite (more off-power steering and less on-power steering). Hope that helps.

Mo : I can't make them stand up more, I was thinking about the anti squat, as it's a setting I've not tried yet on that car... I'll also try the pink springs instead of yellow.

Hi Guys,

I got some estimated price on the CGM kit and the CGM conversion. The CGM kit will be around $259.99 and the conversion kit will be less than $100 I believe. We should have them in stock next week, and pre-order will be setup today on our website

Thanks

Steve Wang

Steve : I sent you an e-mail about 1 week ago about the Barracuda VS MR4TC dogbones but still have no answer. I would need the information to place my order pretty soon, can you answer me ?

By the way, will you have some of the missing bits (EZ wheel hubs, tamiya suspension blocks balls, Sorex 28R) soon ?

Cheers

Fabien

Nope my question was about the length of the dogbones. I need longer than the SD ones, the "old" TC front dogbones could work, but some slightly longer would be even better, so as on the cuda I saw they seemed to be very long, I wondered what was the difference in length between them (I need steel ones).

I'm at work...so I couldn't measure the 'cuda bones for you...but you may want to go to the 'Cuda R2 - R3 thread and ask there... you'll definately get a response...
