Paul : I don't have a one way, true. But I did suffer from flat spots (I assume you mean on the pins on the outdrive side) only after months of use.

It's normal if you're not using any lubricant. Besides, the increased contact surface means now they will wear slower.

I'm using the Tamiya anti wear grease since the begining on my dogbones, on both connections of the dogbones and as you can see, it works very very well.

Cobra81li200:

Doesn't using grease just attract dirt? In the past when I've used grease on driveshaft joints, the grease just turns into a sort of grinding paste and creates more problems. How do you get around that?

cobra: same question here...

I'll have to give a shot to graphite lube, though... Wear can't get any worse than it's now, I guess... Anybody tried to adapt schum/XRay blades on their Yokes?

It looks like the CGM is all graphite. Does it come with graphite gearboxes, arms, hubs, hub carriers etc. etc.?

Randman: If you get the CGM, are you planning to anodize it like your Rayspeed?

(By the way, I know I've seen that motor mount somewhere, but what car was it on? )

Try the Tamiya Anti Wear Grease that's all I can say...

2tenth : it's been a while since we know it comes with all graphite parts...

That motor mount kicks the hell out of the TC3 mount, I think it is very smart not to clamp down onto the graphite and warp the chassis..

I dont know if I'll do it right off the bat, but yes, it will be a red CGM.

Not getting much interest in the RS car except lowballers and traders, but I might have to keep it and just convert it..

You should keep the RS car for asphalt, especially low traction surfaces. The added flex compared to the CGM will give it better traction.

Hi Guys,

We started the pre-order for the CGM Special Chassis kit and the CGM Special Conversion kit are available. These items should be available by early/mid next week. I will keep you all updated

Steve - looks nice. I might be interested, though I need to take the difs apart to find out whats wrong so I would order more parts along with this. One question though, this new conversion kit doesn't use an upper deck?

I actually plan on building 2 CGM's, I'm planning on milling out some of the bracing on my asphault car though.

I just found out that the CGM does not include the graphite arms and hubs. Those are still separate. Now whether they are of the same nylon remains to be seen.

isn't that the CGM kit includes all those in graphite and the CGM conversion for SSG or black SD comes without graphite arms, hubs, gear boxs?
