gimme a break guys. The #1 complaint about the CGM car was that it was kinda heavy. Yokomo goes and releases a lightweight chassis and now everyone is bagging on them? People said the SSG was too soft so they released a black special with regular graphite and people said the same thing. I for one am glad this car isn't like the TC3 where you have to dremel away the chassis to get the batteries in closer and then run nitro TC3 steering racks and then losi castor blocks and rear hubs. It's called constant improvement and yokomo will always do this.

Matt Howard
that is a good point.
But we're just worried if Yokomo does this on purpose or not.

Take it easy Matt, I think everybody love what Yokomo do to the improvement so quickly. We just can't keep up our pocket as fast.

Default new lightweight CGM chassis

So will it be as stiff? Not as stiff? The ultimate asphalt chassis?

Call it what you may..I call it Evolution..Yokomo has been doing it for years..You have too do it too keep on top of the GAME..I think we now have the car we needed sooooo badly for carpet tracks..Lets face it.The Special is an awsome belt car..But it isnt what we need for High traction foams...This is Chris T's best shot yet at the Carpet nats in my opinon..And he hasent even left for the Plane yet..lol I know he is not the only Yokomo going so give hell fellas..
