No, you won't need the o-ring any more.

no, do NOT use an O ring with those universals or they will bind in the drive cups. You have to grind the end just so it doesn't bind in the first place

Default CGM weight diff

A while back, there was an issue about the CGM weighing more than the SSG/Black SD. Has anyone done a weight comparison to weight the CGM?

I had the same problem on my SD when I tried a similar electronics setup as the one you show in the pic. The least glitching happened when the Rx was on top of the top deck, but this looked weird and had a high CG, so I put it on top of the servo. That should help fix the problem.

If that doesn't work, just try the usual, extra servo tape under the reciever, cleaning out the plugs, changing motors etc.

I printed out your setup sheet. It's much more detailed than the old ones (graphite vs plastic parts, rear hub carrier angles) Nice

Did you get a direct fit, or did you have to do the same thing. I want to try a CVD (which I cant find) or a MR4TC universal...
What Robert means is that you buy 3 pairs, 2 rears and 1 front. You need a press to push out the pins in one pair of the fronts, and one pair of the rears. Toss the original front bones and replace with the rear bones on the front axles. Press the pin back in, and you have a correct set of universals for the front. No grinding needed. I haven't done it yet, but may try it sometime in the future. Seems easier to just grind the balls on the universals down. Maybe Yokomo will come out with some hardend universals for the SD in the future!

He said that it wasn't something he'd really want to stock for the SD because modification is required, but call him and ask to put in an order for another pair along with mine.

Speedworld usually stocks them. Billy is in Florida at the Snowbirds this week though.
