Well ran the CGM on carpet. It felt pretty good and consistant for me. Although I wasn't up to the task and so wasn't my gearing. hehe. Anyways, qualified 4th and ended up 2nd. I ran both the Proto Alfa 2.0 and Yok GT350. I think I prefer the Alfa 2.0. Gonna try the Mazda next weekend.

Can't wait til outdoor season....

I ran my SSG with foams today, first time for me, and at a big event (the CML carpet masters in UK).

I still don't see where the problem is, I qualified 8th and had no issue with the car, it was good, and I did run it with my rubber tires setup, made no change apart from keeping my droop the same as tires were wearing. Had no issue with tweak, although I had some big crashes.

Thus, I don't see any point in getting the CGM, which I really don't like !

I'm not a great fan of tub chassis too but the CGM comes with all the graphite parts and the kit is cheaper than the SSG/Black kits.

I saw a bunch of them today, and even if I had to buy a new one, I prefer getting the SSG and buy the graphite bits separately, or maybe get a CGM for spares and graphite bits...

Don't you guys have to use a control foam tire? like a blue or double blue? I'm only asking because in the states we run purples or even double pinks now for foam racing and there's no way you can run a rubber tire setup with these high grip tires(traction roll). With the higher grip tires the stock SSG and even the Black car will flex and cause inconsistent handling, unlike the CGM.

yeah it was jaco blue, but if you grip roll, why not go for harder tires ? You'll go faster as your tires won't stick to the ground as much.

Anyway, I didn't like foam, I prefer rubber by a mile.

I'm with you in prefering rubber tire racing over foam. I'm just commenting that if you are running blue's on carpet then the CGM is not going to have much, if any, advantage over the SSG car. Here in the states we run much stickier tires on carpet and the extra stiffness of the CGM is what we needed.

At the Snowbirds, one of the pros said you actually should go for a softer tire if you traction roll. A harder tire won't "give" or roll for you in a turn where as a softer tire will. Plus if you superglue the outside wall of the foam tire, it helps alot too.

I think the CGM would be a great kit to get for anyone. If you want a more flexible chassis, just get the Rayspeed conversion. It'll save you money in the long run. You'll have all Graphite bits and both chassis for both types of racing.
