yup... you can also use O-rings rather than plastic parts, makes the "hitting" smoother. On high grip tracks it prevents the chassis from rubbing in high speed turns.

I spent quite a bit of time on my SSG this weekend... car now has a rotated servo (new servo btw... KO 2113, 9.5kgs for 0.06s... woo-hoooo!)... full graphite suspension... graphite bevel gears... Graphite gear cases...Tobee Aluminium input shafts (the main shaft wasn't it stock anymore it its lightened version)... I am litterally amazed by the quality of the graphite parts, they're so beautifully molded and so rigid!!!

The car is now on the stand, with an older 13x2 hooked up at 3.0V on my T30 for a good day of break-in. The motor pulls 2.5A with no load. With the transmission hooked on (up to the outdrives) it started at 3.1A, it's now pulling 2.75A after 45mn. So, yes, breaking the tranny in matters quite a bit...

I also applied the trick quoted by a fellow poster a few days ago: countersunk screws on the shock towers (which do contribute to tweak). Combined with the graphite gear cases, it makes a big difference.

Can't wait trying the beast on the track wednesday! And I'll let you know

Later,
Paul

You think you can post a picture of your car; I want to drool all over my keyboard as I'm looking at it .
No seriously, I just want to see how good it looks

flattered by the interest... but my car is not really worth looking at... Graphite parts are just, you know, black it looks like a standard SSG SD with a rotated servo... plus it's still on the stand for transmission break-in and I'm too lazy to take a pic and download it

If you want to see some real nice piece of tuning, take a look at pheyhoe's car (further below on the same page). There's more blue stuff than black! It's only missing suzuki hub carriers...

you know, one of the ugliest cars on the market is the TC3... and it's still one of the fastest

all right... after a good 4 hours of break in under 3.0V, it is considerably freer... when I hooked the bones back, it's back to "begin" though... I guess oiled bearings drag more than dry ones... oh well. Changing bearings at every outing (especially those 6x10x4) sucks

i couldn't get the car hooked up on sunday, i was "experimenting" with setups that shouldn't work, and they didn't. (hey you never know until you try) oh well, from some reason my car likes the stiff spring and heavy oil setup. but i did tq and win with the f-1. scored some pretty good prizes too. team br00d stock motor, and reedy batteries, transmitter bag, and some other small stuff.

Hey, now that is some NICE stuff; if that team br00d motor performs as well as the one that was in Korey's car on Sat., I would say you have a nice one in your repetoir .

HOPE TO SEE YOU OUT THERE SOON

OH, CONGRATS on the F-1win!!!!

Lightbulb New parts

Does someone know what are those foam thingies for?


I guess those parts are not really new but they are selling those 2 packages for Yen4800, must be made for the SD-Drift owners...


Rayspeed shock towers for SSS shocks

The top one is for the CGM chassis. They are side protectors for side impacts/crashes.
