A lot of the guys here have switch from the SSG, Black Special to the CGM and swear that it is much better in every aspect. Others just bought a conversion kit, but its cheaper to buy a whole CGM kit if you want all graphite.

Peace and Happy Racing

Default Ride Air Scoop

I've just bought one.
Does someone know how to attach it on a carbon fiber chassis (non-CGM)
except using double tape (you have to remove it everytime you want to clean the comm.)
Thanks

My CGM weighs in at about 1498 with personal transponder and unleaded, 1528 leaded with 30 g (no shit? :P ), limit was 1522 at the nordics. The mods i've made is taping the battery in. Aluminium universals all around (YMP's in rear and Yokomo alu bones with Square Ti axle in front, Tobee alu input shafts, Shooter main shaft. The lower front bumper is also shaved down to a nearly minimum to save weight. Rear bumper is removed. *edit* Ti screws is also on the car..

@Utieh
My best advice would be some kind of adhesive velcro. I use it for my electronics and it has worked flawlessly for over 2 years. You can swap it as much as you want and it stays like new always

@ Sparx

Wah!! u have done so much modification to your CGM! so you pretty much change all the parts to light weight parts, to achive the weight of 1498..

Do you know the out-of-box weight of a CGM?

Wot electronic do you use ? It has a bearing as to how much the car would weigh.

Try adhesive velcro strips... 3M makes some amazingly sticky ones, I mount my electronics with it, and they don't move by an inch by themselves, but you can still easily remove them if you want to.

Remove the front universals from the diff/oneway outputs... if it doesn't do that noise any more, then it's somewere in there... check for excessive slack, or a fleeing CVD pin that would hit the steering knuckle. Check the same on the rear end too...

For tranny gears, you might also want to check the shaft-side gears with a flashlight. You don't always see defects easily in there

PS: Sorry, the adhesive velcro strip trick had already been mentioned. Didn't see it earlier.

Default Over weight

My car is siting on 1501g. That is with a heavy Protoform body. If i switch to a Yokomo type D body it would be 1480 with out transponder. The biggest savings was when i removed the battery brace and went with taping the batteries in. Also the Ti screw kit was good as well. I had alloy dog bones all round until i snapped one of the front ones. They just ant strong enough for the front. I have the Tobee main shafts and alloy input shafts. I have tried to strip as much weight from the top as i could to lower the roll centre. If i need to add weight i will put it into the slots under the main drive shaft.

Sparx, Lonestar,

Thanks
I've tried Velcro but the one I had was too thick so it's not holding the airscoop securely, I will have to find the 3M's

Should I place the end of the air scoop at the endbell or in front of the can?
I guess the most important part to cool down is the end bell, I'm asking because I've never seen any pictures of it.

Thanks again
