It is the non light weight CGM in the conversion. I know the lightweight version is not a huge savings so I think you would be fine running the conversion kit...I am.

Default Finally happened...

Saturday my race day was shortened when my front shock tower broke during practice. What's worse is that race was the first in a new Point Series.

I've read some of the past posts where some of you have been running a rear shock tower on the front, and other have been running the Rayspeed shock towers.

Questions:

If I use the stock rear shock tower on the front I assume that it must be trimmed? Where to I trim?

If I use the Rayspeed towers, can I still use my standard shock shafts, or do I need to change the shocks or springs in some way?

Last, anyone know of a Hobby Store that has these items in stock, and can ship before this Saturday?

I almost forgot, I also need a replacment hinge pin!!!

The shim with a notch in it is equal to 1 deg when it's added under a suspension mount. the shim without a notch is equal to 1mm

yes go to Raibowten
but you still have to buy 2 additional parts which are the diff braces for the front and rear, dunno if the steering linkage will work from the standard SD to CGM.

Speedtech should have what you need in stock. He can send it out 2 day air or 3 day select so you can have the stuff before Saturday.

Actually, there are more bits that you will need:

1. CGM Motor mount
2. Front and Rear Suspension blocks
3. Servo/Antenna mount

I think just buying the minimum parts will equal the price of a full conversion kit. There's no short cuts.

Howdy

here's a pic of my front shock tower... the extra outer hole is actually the body post holder, you can trim this one off too.

a dremel does the job just fine. Just wear a mask (breathing carbon fiber dust is not so good for your lungs).

Later,
Paul

PS: Sorry, blurry pic...

Will be interesting to see what Tosolini and Masami ran at the worlds warm up in terms of setup. I know I could use a good Pre Mount 27 Take Off setup...lol

Also I wanted to see what this threads thoughts on what set up changes would a person look at doing for a new track that is Concrete large (160 ft straight) indoor and from reports Ihave been getting enough traction that cars are traction rolling in many of the high speed areas. I am going from running outdoors on asphalt. any tips on trying to prevent traction roll would be cool.

Jeff, try running some antidive in the front of the car, that will take away some initial turn-in and should stop any traction rolling. You can also put some glue on the sidewalls of the tire so when the car starts to tip it will hit the glue and stop
