The Pro-Trak tray takes the cells down to almost 0v.

I have one, but prefer my Robitronics tray.

Novak will put them into production the end of this month, and they will most likely be avalible to the public mid march from what I've been told.

Any info is great!

I'll ask on that, not sure though. I'll propably go back to Novak when the new ESC is released. Bob Novak is always a very friendly guy at the track, I definately want to support them, but the GT7 + cap is just too big.

Yodace- I ran #3 pistons with 40wt oil at Mikes. I ran AE blue springs front and AE silver rear. Rest of the setup was close to box stock for that track. I ran mod that night with a 10turn KR and it was nice.

Thanks!
The CGM will probably be the best chassis overall for carpet, but of those two, I would definently go with the SSG. The Rayspeed chassis has better battery and servo placement, but flexs too much for carpet racing, with foams at least. With rubber tires the story might be different, but I have not run the RS chassis with rubber tires. The two of us here at Rain that tried the RS with foams basically just gave up on eventually. I switched back to my black chassis, which is similar to the SSG, and now have switched again to the CGM. This is just my experience, but I believe others have had more success.

O kay I have a question for you SD guys and specifically the CGM I just got. I'm sure they're the same for this part too. Anyway, on the rear where the Diff meets the CVDs, there is an Aluminum Joint ring (blue) that looks like it helps retain the drive (part# SD-501R). My question is, is it really necessary? It seams the CVD goes plenty far in to it, so popping a CVD out shouldn't be a problem, and they're a hassle to put on (I lost one when putting my car together and don't think I should have to order this small part). I left the front ones one, but is there a real functional reason to using these other than helping to keep the CVD from popping off? $3 part, plus shipping seams like a waste.

Yeah, it's mainly to keep the outdrive from breaking and they are more important in the front than the rear. You should be OK without them in the rear.

this ^^ is the real reason for the ring...

before these rings existed back in 'the day' (and when the first plastic oudrives were introduced to Touring cars) a lot of the outdrives were breaking from hard frontal inpacts of the cars... also at high speeds the outdrives were 'flaring-out' and warping... this ring was then introduced to basically 'hold the open-end of the outdrive together' during these extreme cituations...or something like that....

yeah, without the ring the diff outdrives will spread and the life span will be much shorter
