I have a question regarding the Rayspeed chassis VS the stock SSG chassis. I will be running the car mainly on carpet tracks, and as far as a more "carpet friendly" chassis which is the recommended chassis to go with?

Thanks!

Matt,

I think what he is referring to is keeping the same gear ratio, but changing to a bigger spur gear which, of course would mean switching to a larger pinion as well.

I do know that it would move the motor on a shaft drive car a little more outboard and maybe throw your tweak off a little.

But, then again I could be wrong with his question.

Mike

What do you get with purchasing the CGM kit that you would not get when purchasing the CGM conversion for the SSG SD Yok?

Cobra,

I have to agree with you the the G350 body. I had a slight push with the Stratus and with the G 350 body it took the turns very crisp and sharp.

With the conversion you only get the chassis, shocktowers, steering assembly and the new motor mount. With the whole CGM kit you get all the parts in graphite compared to the regular plastic in the other kits. I already had all the graphite parts so I just went with a conversion

does the CGM kit come with all the other standard stuff that comes with the SSG/Black Special kits? Like threaded shocks, titanium t-buckles, etc?

The CGM car kit comes with everything that the ssg/black came with but instead with the newer chassis and shocktowers and that. The conversion kit doesnt come with any of that stuff only chassis and shocktowers and steering and motor mount

Both of those chassis' are good on asphault, but the CGM will definately be the best on carpet.

Hi friends. greetings from Malta.

I have only been racing my Yokes very occasionally this season as I have been too busy helping others out during race meetings.

I do run them quite a bit though. The thick chassis car I run in mod trim with 8 and 9 turn motors. it is great. The SSG has one of our club's control stock 21 turn motors so if there are lots of stock guys at the track then I join them with that.

I should be getting my stock of CGMs this week. The more I read and hear about these cars the more I think what excellent value for money they are. Can't wait to build one.

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Kilruf,

Oh, I am sorry, I thought this was the Xray forum...

Actually, I have been pondering getting the CGM and almost bought one at the Snowbirds.

I am tentatively planning on coming down for the 28th race. Sounds like there should be a big turnout.

Maybe, you will let me behind the wheel of your CGM to get a feel for it???

Mike

The CGM kit also includes all the regular plastic parts in graphite, as well as the threaded shocks and Ti turnbuckles, etc.
