If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, you take a look at Titanium Racing's full titanium CVDs for the SD. They are the same design as a MIP CVD, but all titanium. (Check out the team orion newsfeed). By the way, I'm almost positive that the Shooters mounts will not fit on the CGM.

Speaking of carpet versus asphalt, I'll probably use the CGM on carpet, and Black or SSG for asphalt, or just try to make the CGM work outdoors. I think a stiffer chassis can work outdoors, it's just a matter of setup. I mean, the TC3 is pretty stiff, and does well.

A stiff chassis can work outdoors. I ran my super stiff RS car at the last T4T race a couple weekends ago. This had to be the loosest track I've ever been on, but I found a setup that would work. Took the win in Pro Stock

These last way longer than anything else. There part numbers are ZS-010FH (Front) and ZS-010RH (Rear).
here you go, I've been using these on the front of my SD, they're as bullet proof as you can get.

It looks like the CGM is all graphite. Does it come with graphite gearboxes, arms, hubs, hub carriers etc. etc.?
Yep, pretty much the whole car is graphite, everything you mentioned anyway!
Hopefully i will be testing it out at the track tomorrow if i get my car back from the chop shop :P

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? )
Look on the Yokomo Forum, there is a thread on the CGM. But you have to be registered.

The majority of the car is graphite, except for minor things like body post etc..

Alch: Thanks for the clarification (I just hope the US version is the same!). I can't wait to hear about how the car handles. Have you weighed the car yet, fully assembled? Is it really heavier than the original SD?
