Matt Howard may correct me on this, but I think the only difference is the dye - the actual material is the same.

So take your pick

Mo's setup sheets look okay to me. You might try upgrading your version or Adobe Acrobat reader.

I think your right, we were told by yokomo that the only difference is the color of the plastic. I haven't been able to tell any difference in the durability or smoothness of either so it seems they're right.

Hey everyone. Last Tuesday, I won the C main at trackside. Whats cool is that my time was less than 4 seconds slower than the last place guy in the A main. I do have 2 main questions: My lhs dosn't have a minimun weight limit so I want the lightset car possible, right now, its 3.5lbs. I know what to get for the drivetrain, but how much lighter is the shooter light weight motor mount compared to the stock one. And my second question is that I run rubber on carpet and the car handles great, would I be wasting my money to buy the cgm conversion kit and the light weight chassis. Any insight would be greatly appriciated.

Matt: I was looking at a picture of Tosolini's CGM from the Cleveland race, and I noticed he used a longer turnbuckle from the servo to the bellcrank. Instead of linking the servo to the center of the rack, like in the instructions, he attached it to the battery side of the rack. Do you have any idea what this does handling-wise?

Also: On the Yokomo distributer site, there are CGM setups from Masami and Suzuki. Does anyone know where I might find them in English? Thanks

All you gotta do is like print out that sheet and hold it next to an english version and line everything up. It should work ok.

I did the same thing with my CGM, I put a turnbuckle inbetween the two bellcranks instead of the molded link as well so I can play with ackerman adjustments. It's just another setting you can play with if you want, right now I'm still running the stock lengths, when I get my spool setup where I want I'll play with this.

The universals will work. You have to grind part of the ball down on them so the suspension can compress. I have run the fronts for about 8 months and still are like new. I tried pretty much everything else out there, and there would be slop in them after a couple of runs. Also put the rears in about a month ago and I won't run anything else in my car.

Default My CGM

still in the final stage of assembly. Saving enough money for a new 302f Rx, painting a body.

the mods that I did is the NTC3 RPM bumper and the cut out battery retainer, still getting ideas from this thread so keep it coming!

I used Tamiya Ti Hex Screws and almost 100% full Ti screws! I am also using SQUARE Ti input shafts, cvd's and hinge pin screws. Rayspeed shock retainers and springs, the rest are Yokomo!

Have not set up the car poperly, like toe-in/out, camber and so on! just excited to show it! It's my first Yokomo Car!

Default NTC3 Bumper Mod

Hey Lem2,

Can you provide pics or a summary of what you had to do to fit the NTC3 bumper to the CGM chassis?

Thanks

Jeff

Matt: Thanks for the info. That's a cool idea, I have not been able to mess with the ackerman settings yet. Is the spool you're testing from WA by any chance? I know a guy who machined steel spools up here for the SD as well as the Barracuda and Evo III. He said he was sending them down to CA for testing.
