Lonestar - sounds like a very similar question to one asked on the Yokomo forum...

Roll centre is below the CG - you would have to have some extremely strange suspension geometry to get the RC above it (probably not acheivable), and if it did, the car would actually lean IN on corners, like a motorbike.

"Hooking" - I know the problem well - and raising the front RC is a (possible) cure. Try it.

Very nice indeed. I'm a sucker for GT 'Super Car' type shells - they look so much nicer than the run-of-the-mill stuff.

I am reciving a CGM soon and I have been reading through the posts to get information on this car. I havn't got that much information about this car. My question is how good is it? can I convert it to a SSG if I want to can I use the Rayspeed and Suzuki
aftermarket parts? and what do you guys think of this car. One more thing I will be at the Reedy Race this year who make a spool for this car?
Thanks Guys

I dont have a chassis sponsor yet, so until I do get one, I'm gonna do what I like to do and that's build different cars. When I get a chassis sponsor, I'll stick to one brand for good.

should've tried getting the 3PK 27mhz module...possibly solved your glitching problem... and you'd still be running the SD.

Still cant have the radio serviced over here though. I made the change to make everything simple, and easy to service.

OIC.. since Airtronics is only a stones throw away...you made the right decision.
