Well last night I removed and reassembled my rear transmission housing. I wasn't able to identify what was causing the binding, but when rebuilding I did make sure that everything was properly seated. My drivetrain is now turning freely.

As I reinstalled the transmission housing, I constantly checked for any binding as I installed screw after screw. Believe it or not, as soon as I installed the 2 bottom screws (closest to the spur) that hold the transmission case in place the transmission began to bind again??? All I was doing is snugging the screws in place, not cranking down on them.

I continued checking the movement of the transmission as I installed the rest of the screws, and I noticed that it would bind slightly dependent on which screw I was securing and how tight I made the screw.

Anyway, I found a balance and everything is working fine. I had no idea that these plastic parts deform when screws are installed.

Thanks for all the help guys.
You need to break your drive train in. Use a stock motor @3V during at least 6Hrs and then see how it goes. Of course, fully tighten the diff case for this operation.

is there any tricks or methods mentioned b4 that i missed about fixing this conering issue??
Make sure that your steering is perfeclty even left to right. When you're in neutral position, your servo horn should be vertical AND the steering turnbuckles should have the same lenght.

It's strange as with my SSG when the chassis was stock it was pushing only on LHC, not RHC, and it was sorted with the servo mod.

Hi guys
What difference does it make to the cars handling if you use the rear hubs for the toe in instead of the rear pin holders?

Im not 100% sure but i dont think it makes to much of a difference. I think just adding toe in the hubs gives you more adjustability. Like with the 0.5 degree hub u can add or take off 0.5 toe but using them normally or putting the left hub on the right and the right on the left it decreses the toe by 0.5. Overall I think toe is toe doesnt really matter where you add although i could be wrong.

Reagards to the SD track problem. When I had my ssg my car would always tweak and never felt good. When I went to a big race I had to rebuild the car everynight to get the tweak out. I went and bought a black chassis and the car was nigth and day difference. Now that I have the CGM the car is even better than the black, no tweak issues and the car handles great. No complaints on this one although it could use a little diet

Yeah, tweak can be a real pain. Just about all the guys I know that run SSG's or Black Specials have experienced the same. It's nothing that a Hex wrench and a flat surface can't solve though!

The RS is much harder to tweak. I'm picking up some good scores with the the new chassis

I wonder how Randman is getting on with his Losi? Is it red yet?

Default Problem with Yokomo wheels

Last weekend i broke two of the Yokomo Precision rims (TW-1012) without having any extraordinary hard impacts. It seems that they are just a little bit too hard. Has anyone experienced the same?

Tkhanks,

I think you can hit things a little harder with the old Yoke rims before they crack.

Exclamation

An ex Schumacher team driver started racing an SSG but gave up on it because he kept breaking it. He changed to a TC3 - but kept the Yok wheels and ran the TC3 on them. The first regional A final he got into with it, he had to retire - because the one of the Yok wheels broke!!

Default Yoke rims

I dont know the TW012... but if they are the white dish rims delivered in the kit, then they're way to fragile. I mounted a set recently, and this was the first set I ever threw away *before* the tires were worn out... the outside front rim was broken at least at 8 different places. The wheel looked closer to an octogon than a circle.

Yes, I do too hit boards sometimes...

Back to JB rims

Yes, that are the wheels coming with the kit. Hey seems like I am pretty good Mine have cracked at 2 places only, and
the tires are already pretty worn out

Now, I am looking for some medium-hard wheels. What do you recommend... (btw. they should be as unexpensive as possible)

Greetings,
IH
