Those kits sold in Asia and Europe come with one-way as standard, while the US version has a front diff. I think 1 ounce is about 28.4g, so 53 ounce is 1505g.

WARNING TO BEGINNER DRIVERS: Do not use yokomo dish wheels unless you can stay away from boards... They're rigid and nicely designed (read light), but as with every stiff component with reduced rotating mass, they're fragile and brittle... Don't tell us we didn't warn you

No tires in the kit.

Mabuchi540: Don't bother about oneways for now, i recommend a 2-diff setup.

Post Another quick one....

Apart from the chassis what's the difference between the CGM and the SSG visually I can't spot it from the pictures I've seen? If anyone knows of a good side by side comparison that would be appreciated.

apart from the chassis?

The CGM is all graphite-loaded plastic, the SSG has more flexible parts. Transmission and suspension are similar. The CGM also uses a different steering, shock tower, and then there's a few extra parts due to the architecture change, like the hingepin holders and chassis braces... But the chassis is a hell of a change by itself...

Btw, I still drive the SSG and I'm perfectly happy with it... at least it doesn't look like a TC3 To me it's still the sexiest-looking car on the market, and it drives well. It's also a little more forgiving on low-to-medium grip conditions, due to the extra flex.

Later,
Paul

Attn: Rayspeed Owners

I'm having problems trying to adjust my chassis ride height.

I race on foams so the diameter of the wheel changes. If i run new set of foams. I can't get my ride height lower than 7mm.

It is recommended that you run the SS shock bodies for the Rayspeed chassis. Can someone tell me the difference between the SSS vs SS shock body. Is it completly different?

I originally had problems trying to get the length of the standard shocks to fit properly but then used the spare plastic shock ends included in the SD kit to convert it to make the shock length longer.

Thanks

The SS shock bodies recommended by Rayspeed are slightly longer.

Use long shock ends all round and you will have no problems.

Asimo

the difference between SS and SSS shocks body is their length indeed. Playing with shock ends to compensate is a common trick. You can also try to unscrew them a bit in order to get a few extra millimeters.

Another trick is using the most appropriate hole on the front C-hub...

Hope this helps,
Later,

Paul

Default Just a Question.....

Since Yokomo CGM is so similar to TC3...

I just wondering, when they both out of the box, is it the weights are same?

or CGM still heavier then TC3 ?

@ asimo

I run the Rayspeed shock towers, with the original shock bodies and yokomo springs. To get the the proper ride height you need the long shock ends combined with the rayspeed aluminum spring holder thingy (don't remember what it's called, I usually speak norwegian...) These make the spring sit "lower" on the shock end.

I usually run rubber tires, with my shocks at 64mm and have no problems setting the ride height between 4 and 6 mm. This also depends on which holes you use between the arms and hubs.

Default Front diff to Spool set-up

I've just ordered a spool from SpeedTechRC.

It seems that can't find any good set-up with the oneway on my track (the surface is a little bit odd, abrasive but no grip)
The diff works fine but the car is "slow"
I would like to know in which way should I change my set-up if I am switching to a spool.
Thanks

Gilles

Try cutting the foam to match the size of rubber.
