Randman, did you sort out your glitching?

Got to run my CGM last friday, was quite happy with the way it handled itself. even with a pretty much stock setup it was fine, after making some adjustments i ended up knocking a few seconds of my laptimes.
A couple of the Yokomo team drivers were testing their cgm's... quite impressive, puts me to shame

Randman, if you have access to a weighing machine, could you let us know how heavy is your CGM with bodyshell and rubber tires? Really appreciate that. Thank you.

No weighing in for me... I honestly couldn't care less what the weight of the car is personally, what matters to me is that my laptimes can keep up, and that I dont dump in the 5 min race.

the notchy feel is at the rear end of the drive train and it feels like the diff gear is not flat or something similar, the drive train spins smoothly till a point that i can really feel each tooth is going by and after that 5-6 teeth it rotate smoothly again

is it time to replace the gears, or did i messed up somewhere?
I had the same problem with mine, after running for a day at the track, it was still binding.
After rebuilding the car the car the problem ws solved, spins free as a bird now.

I noticed a considerable improvement on my SD drivetrain after doing two things. One: running the car on the track helps the most. And Two: using two shims on the input shafts instead of three.
