What does a low CG have anything to do with the weight of the car? If anything, the CGM will have a lower CG than the current SD because all of the bracing is right on the chassis.

I know one shouldn't ask two different questions on one post, because only one will be answered, but I can't help myself... that's why, later on, I have to ask again

soooooo.... has anyone tried to use blades (schum, xray, ...) on their yokes?

Thanks,
Paul

PS: thanks for the "rose" explanation

I havent heard of anyone trying that, I can't see the XRay ones getting anywhere near close to fitting, and I dont know what the Schum blades axle size is...

The blades on the Xray bones uses a smaller pin to hold in place. so it won't fit...

The Schumacher blades also use a small pin to hold the blades on. I use to race their cars for years and remeber the pins are the small size, almost like the ones used in the CVD's to connect the bone to the axle.

They use the tiny pin, but the protective plastic piece to go over them, which really is a good idea IMO, I just dont see them fitting on the SD.

Default Video Cameras

I went to local meeting where I guy had rigged up 2 minature cameras with transmitters, with 2 seperate monitors complete with the receivers plugged into VCRs. During the day, both the cameras were used during the actual races on numerous cars - it was hilarious!! The racing was far more entertaining watching it from the on-board cameras - you really felt the speed. If you were small enough to clim aboard I'm pretty sure the G would be awesome!

The thing is, it turned into an expensive game of tag - who could get the most spectacular crash caught on video - priceless!! By the end of it, everyone was dizzy and the cameras couldn't cope with the shock loadings BUT the video caught some impressive take outs

Stuff like this attracts spectators - it's what the sport needs.

Thanks for posting the video - it's great!

Just saw the video of Chris racing at SoCal, that is pretty bad ass. Wish I could have been there that night to see how they rigged the camera though.
