So if you want to convert to FULL graphite, you will need to spend quite a bit more (for gearbox, arms, mounts, carriers, ect.). You'll probably be better off getting the whole kit. Oh well.

I already had all that stuff, but buying a new kit is the easy way to go. They arent expensive at least...

Sorry if this has ever been adressed before but there is not a chance I'm reading through 330 pages to find out.

I just got a SSG and it was allready built but not run. I have a bind in the rear of the car. I can rotate the spur and it is smooth to a certain point and then it notchs. It was REALLY bad till i moved the shaft that holds the spur gear out. Now it is just in that one spot. Any got a clue what might be causing it? is it just because it needs to be run in?

Thanks guys!

The hub pin is not all the way inside the spur gear adapter. Make sure the pin is perfectly centered. you should only see 1/3 of pin when you look at the adapter pin hole.

Robert Itoh looked impressive with his last Saturday. I dont think weight is an issue, but if it is, maybe we should find the places to mill out to kill some grams. I know somebody that has a mill that needs to be used

Ya I got one of those "magic" integy machines haha. It's actually awesome. lots of times when im rebuilding my car i just throw bearings and other stuff etc. in it and later on when im putting it back in i just put a drop of oil on the bearings and im set. Its a really really good little "magic" machine. The batteries last for a hella long time too.

Highly recommend it

Cool!

What sort of chemicals is safe to use in it? Can I just use ordinary motor/bearing cleaner without breaking the machine? Or do you have to use milder stuff?

Does anyone here polish their bearings? I recall one racer who removes the seals, cleans the bearing, apples some sort of metal polish, spins the bearing on a dremmel, then cleans away the polish and then re-lubes the bearing ready fo use.

Has anyone here tried this?
