Default SD must-have options

What are you considering as your first option parts?

Bearings: Are the kit bearings rubber sealed? How do the super precision bearings differ from the teflon sealed bearings?

Aluminum or titanium instead of steel: CVDs, screw sets, ball studs, etc.?

Anything else (besides a one way)?

For me I already purchase a full set of Teflon sealed bearings from a seller on Ebay... for $26.00 a set..that is a bargain.

I have the front one-way plus othre spare parts coming in from Japan. As soon as Speedtech as the parts available...I'll order from them.

Aluminum screws are too week... and Ti screws weld them selves into aluminum parts...I typically use Stainless steel.

Now I'm looking to get of MIP CVDs.

Yokomo is going to offer a full Ti screw set for the car shortly, I'm sure that Ti racing will offer a set as well.

Steve W. I'll give you a call tomorrow and give you my other card number to charge the SD on. Been waiting for my friend to pay me for the Evo3. But he says he'll do it this week sometime. So just need to make sure I can cover the cost. I don't wanna be one of those "don't go through" guys.

Anyhow, got my spare parts in today for my SD. Now I get to test run it with the Brushless tomorrow. Only thing I didn't get on my order were the front spindles, and hubs (front, and rear). As soon as SpeedtechRC gets them in, I'll have to order from there.

When you order A-Arms... they come with 2. Just letting yall know. Anyhow, let me head out. I have to put on the new arm on my car!

Oh and another note, when taking off the sway bars off the arms... be very careful. You can break the little nubs off the arms that hold the ball cup for the sway bar. Not very nice. I did this last week on one of the rear arms. But I have new ones now.. hehe

For those of you who have tried the TC3 and then the SD, would you be able to tell the differences of the 2 cars in terms of handling?

I almost went nuts trying to set the TC3 for a particular asphalt track. Basically I couldn't do a sharp enough turn-in into the tight and twisty infields, no matter what I did.

What I did notice was that the turning radius of the TC3 isn't as small as say as 04R on low speeds....

Hi guys. greetings from Malta.

You know this car is already breaking records, before it's even reached the shops.

Has there been any other car about which 32 pages have been written before ordinary folk like myself have even got their hands on it?

I'm hoping mine should reach me this week. However I will be sad to shelf the MR4 Special. At yesterday's 11th round of our Nats I won the stock class again (win number 6 this season), but what was most impressive was the way it came. The result would have put me 3rd or 4th in mod. My best lap was exactly a second slower than the lap record for that track set by my son at the same meeting yesterday in mod. So you could say I am still over the moon with the Special.

If the SD is better then I hesitate to think what fun it's going to be and what results it's going to give me!

Regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Have you tried a one-way on your TC3?

JohnBull, congrats on the results. Sounds like a good experience.

A guy at our club got a brand new Special, for a very nice price. Simply because the shop want to sell out, before the SD arrive. The Special definately is a nice car, can only imagine about the SD...

Yeah, I got a "must have option" for the SD:

-One of the local shops has blank stock Kydex for making bumpers. Until I can pick up some spares, I'm going to make a new SUPER wide bumper for the car. It may not look the best, but it should keep me rolling until the parts arive a Speedtech.

-Associated chassis protector-I wont even think of running that SSG chassis before I cover it with this stuff!

Thats about all I have planned at first. I will definitely pick up a one-way when they become availible. I've gotten used to running with one in my KX-1, plus its so easy to switch back and forth between diff and one-way on the SD. So, I figure I should get one just so I can try running the car both ways and see which one I like for which tracks.
