Default Graphite/Plastic

I would like to stock up on parts that break easily on my CGM.
Question: What is the difference betwen Graphite Arms (which cost double) over the plastic arms?

Are there any performance gains by using Graphite over Plastic arms, that are noticeable by a Novice Driver like me?

Thanks! Lem

As a beginner too, i've broken several plastic arms, 2 or 3 i think, never broke any graphite parts. and they are lighter!

They're the yokomo greens on my setup. You might want to replace the locknut in your diff. I haven't had to tighten mine at all after a couple weekends of racing on my spool

Those are an mystery, there is no "stainless" on the spring chart . . . my guess would to test the spring rating and compare with all the other springs and if they are close, then it should be around there. . . . but I haven't ever seen a spring dyno.

Hi all,

My SSG turns a year old this month and i have been more than happy with it the past year of racing. I really do not have any major complaints except for a few things.

I run both front and rear diffs, and ever since ive had this kit i noticed that i regularly snap the long screw that tightens the diffs. I double check and make sure that i build them correctly every time, also making sure that it is well lubed and set not too tight or too loose but still i snap them. Can anyone recommend me a replacement part that is more durable? or are there any tips you recommend to avoid this from happening?

Also, i know the king pin issue (working its way loose) has been adressed on here. Do you recommend using alum carriers or do they bend and wear easy, creating play. Any tips i could try out to make them stay on? thanks in advance.
