utieh,
I'd think endbell too... check out on overrc, in Cobra's report I think there's some pics about how he did his. A fan works just fine too

Weighted my car yesterday... SD SSG with no central plate, no rollbars, Cyclone TC, Older Airtronics 94157 servo (MG), two servo savers to reduce slop, suzuki spindles, Tobee bones rear and Square Ti Front, Personal transponder, Team Orion B rubbers, Orion Revolution, 3000HV's & 3-color Mazda 6 body (not light) : 1520grms

I guess with a little massaging and some more modern electronics, I'd easily go below 1500gms...

Later,
Paul

Actually, you can get rid of your additional servo saver setup to save some weight. It does absolutely nothing to reduce slop. The slop is between the bearings the the blue alloy steering post. It is very cheap to try (about $4) so a couple of my buddies and I tried it. It did nothing. All it did was get in the way of the servo arm when you do the 90 deg servo mod. Just my .02.

I'd be happy running 1520 grams. I would certainly never start a race with less than 1510 grams.

SERVO SAVERS. I was having a look at a pic of Masami's CGM. He doesn't run a servo saver at all.

Both my Yokes and my son's TC3 also run without a servo saver. So long as you have a good servo, preferably with metal gears, there shouldn't be a problem,and it's a fine way to reduce some more unnecessary weight.

I'd like to take this time to thank a buddy that has helped and teased me over the last couple of years. Matt Howard will be leaving us soon to go to Korea (i think) for a year. No matter how much crap I threw at him he always came back with a good one liner. Thank you Matt for the great times. I will run your body colors at the speedworld cup in honor of you.....if that's okay by you.

I also want to thank Matt for all the help he has given Alex and me in the past, not to mention the competition, they don't call him the "Rocket Man" for nothing. Also thanks for the all the laughs. STNLST, you won't go any faster running Matt's colors!

Do you know the out-of-box weight of a CGM?
From what i know the boxstock weight is around 1530-1550 depending on who you ask

The electronics i run is: KO Propo KR302 AHSR reciever, LRP Quantum 2 esc and Futaba S9550 servo

Anyone get a setup from the Yokomo team guys (Tosolini, Masami, Matt) at the Reedy? ANy info on premount 27's setups would help a bunch!


Thanks

Jeff

Actually, I don't agree with you.

The slop in the left-side steering knuckle is indeed coming mostly from the axial play of the 2 bearings that hold the left bellcrank on the left blue post (still following me here?). On the standard left assembly, both bearings are right next to each other, which allows more slop (the bellcrank can "twist" more on the post). On the servo-saver side, bearings are split apart at both ends of the post... the slop in each bearing is the very same, but it allows for less overall "twist". So, yes, using a second servo saver on the left side DOES reduce slop. More important, it gives a very similar slop on both sides of the car, which makes a difference in the handling, believe me.

Please do not use such bold statements as "it does absolutely nothing to..." for solutions that have a valid mechanical reasoning behind them. It probably didn't help that much on your car because there was too much slop in all the other parts of the steering linkages, but it does reduce slop and make it symetric.

Joe, as far as running with no servo saver at all... I guess Masami can afford not to... but sometimes boards just jump in front of my car without notice , I don't know why, I tell them not to, but they still do it after years and years of racing... Plus I pay for my stuff... So I have to run a servo-saver I don't think weight is that much of an issue anyway... First we need to learn how todrive consistently, THEN we should care about weight!

Later yall

Paul
