Or you can try the swaybar open ball ends. They have less slop as well. They are just hard to come by.

Good luck Matt!

ball ends: try schum ball joints with RPM cups. It's supposed to be the best.

I run tamiya ball ends and cups... it's already considerably better than the stock junk.

Later,
Paul

Post A couple of quick Yokomo questions....

I've seen conflicting information about the SSG but according to the Yokomo site the kit does come with tyres(as in the parts list doesn't say they are not included)...True or False and if true are they any good/last very long.

Secondly if I ran it in 540 stock does the motor plate allow the motor to move far enough away to fit a 40 tooth pinion when using the kit spur (not that I might actually use it but want to know the amount of movement it has).

Thanks in advance.

Running a 40 tooth pinion with a 72 spur fits fine. I go between 36 and 42 in 'stock' .

Cool thanks (my bad I thought the kit spur was a 70) and the tires, does it come with them as the Yokomo site indicates? Oh and from the official parts list it also appears that a one way front end it not optional (as in included in the kit)?

The kit spur might be a 70, not too sure on that. As for the tires, not sure on those either, and for the one-way, it depends on where you are buying the kit from, Oceania is standard with a one-way, and America is standard with a diff. I dont think you will need a diff anyway. The standard setup works really well with a one-way in stock most of the time.

optional, that means its a "hop up" item. you have to pay extra and order it if your hobby store doesn't stock it. i bought my ssg used so i can't answer your tires question, but i did just get the cgm kit and it came with wheels but not tires (tyres)

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
ssg, no center plate, jr 4750, no servo saver, wide bumper quatum 2 , tamiya 23t ,3300's, ti screw set, protoform mg body 2 colors, personal trans. premounted yok 138g's, roll bars, 53.4 oz. 53 is legal. not sure what the conversion to grams is.

I downloaded their own parts list from the site (I'm looking at it now) and according to that a dot means standard kit part and a * means optional and if you scroll down the list there is a dot next to the one way unit. Sounds like misleading advertising on their part....Grrrrrrr

No tyres are included with the kit and the kit spur gear is a 70T 48dp.

As for one ways, Only japanese kits have the one ways as std. That how i understand it anyway

true, no tires are included in the kit only dish wheels, which is actually a very good set. they have two different compounds that i'm aware of. one's stiff and the other is slightly softer.
and the front one-way is a 'HOP-UP'. it is a good hop-up to have in your arsenal
