Thanks for the help.

Do you see any unusual wear on the "spur" gears?

These are the same alu bevel gears Leo Chan was selling a couple of weeks ago for $40, right?

Looks like Tos was faster w/ the double deck car. Hopefully, we can get his feedback after the Birds.

I can't understand what the mechanical justification is...

This is nonsense to me, with a lower reduction ratio the centre shaft spins slower so the overall kinetic energy carried by the drive train is lower wih the stock ratio.

Well I am still very interested in the CGM. Chris had the car for less then a week and was able to go and compete with the best in the world with it....should be fast enough for my club racing....lol Early reports are that people are liking the car. Looking forward to getting mine.

I wonder if the CGM turns out to be slower than the double deck version, will you guys go back to run the RS or BSG, SSG? Seems Chris is a bit off pace with the CGM.

If you look at the results the top 20 are seperated by what, 6 seconds? Have you talked to Chris to see what car he was running? I think it's WAY too early to be calling one car faster than the other. Besides, Chris's double deck car is made with much stiffer graphite so he's not really comparing a stock SD with the CGM. One race does not make or break a car.

Matt, you are right.It's too early to say,hope to see your opinion soon when you have the chance to test it.
Also, someone said the CGM weight 56 ounce(1610g), my RS is 1490g, while Randman's RS weight only 1360g. How can Randman keep his car so light?

It's a possibility, if Mo is seeing longer runtime, that means I can gear up a tooth higher than normal...

I wouldn't doubt it, the CGM is a new car, gonna take people a little time to get used to it and get it dialed.

One thing I just thought of that would make a difference, is the car was on foam tires when I weighed it in. Foams are not only lighter than rubber, but I also trued them down to 57mm.

You might as well have weighed your car with rims on it then LOL throw some rubbers on there and weigh it for us
