Maybe he raised the pivot blocks, by like 2mm or so, but that'd be a lot.

Does anyone have the complete parts list for the CGM conversion kit? If so, can you send it to me. PM me for email address.
Thanks!

Hi Guys,

We received quite a few new MR-4TCSD and CGM kit hop-ups, including the Light weight CGM chassis Tobee Craft Hop-ups for the MR-4TCSD are also back in stock.

Also, we received prototypes of the SD spools and we will be testing them this weekend. We should have them available soon.

From the results posted on the Carpet Nats thread looks like Tosolini is in the Show in mod sedan with his CGM. Cool to see his yok running well on the rug!

Default Spur gears

What spur gears to have for gearing to run 27T stock motor? I just want the needed gears. Most commonly used. I don't want to buy every size. What for 48p or 64p?

Default Spurs Sizes

Depending on what motor you will be using. I run Trinity Monsters using the stock spurs (70 tooth) and just adjust the the pinions (23-25 tooth) depending on the tire diameter with good results.

Default Spur Gear

I'm running Orion Core. I know the recommended starting gearing is 6.6~7.0, but I can get similiar ratios by using different Spur. So, I don't know what is better size spur to use? Let's say, I can get (48P) 7.059 gear ratio by using 63 spur/21 pinion. I also can get 7.059 gear ratio by using 81 spur/ 27 pinion. What are the differences?

Really it makes no difference.

If you were being super technical, the larger gears will mesh better and maybe transmit more torque (only an issue with tiny, tiny pinions though), the larger gears have a higher rotating mass.

Just worry about the gear ratio, not the gear sizes.

I find that a 75 spur lets you run pretty much any gear ratio you could need, unless you were on a HUGE track.

The track is about small or medium size with new a year old asphalt. Good track condition.

Hi Guys,

initial test of the SD spool was awesome, the car handles great (we tested on a medium/large size outdoor track with decent bite) very predictable in and out of the turns.

These spools are made of steel so they are very durable, and because we incorporated a lot lightening process (hollowing out the center of the spool and milling out the back plate) these spools are about the same weight as the one-way unit with the outdrives on.

I'll have an exact weight of the two on Monday when I get back to work and have access to our digital scale

We should have these available very soon.
