i think its the input shafts arent straight, wel the ones that come with the kit arent if you look at it from the side and spin the wheels slowly you wil notice that the drive cup itself goes up and down

The drive cups at either end perhaps? Anyone else notice this? Or is it a normal CGM/SSG thing that straightens out under speed?

You can be sure that those shafts are straight. Its the drive cups. There is bound to have some play as you fit it to the shaft.....so it'll' wobble on yah. Unless you could find an UJ joint to install else you'll just have to live with it. I did.

So unless the cup and shaft were machined as one unit live with it huh? Just thought it might effect the efficiency of the drive train.

I've no problem with the efficiency issue...only the rattling noise.

if the cup and the shaft were one unit then it would be like the tamiya evo III and you would break gears whenever you touched anything since there's no play back and forth.

Why not try some DIY pin cushions?

I'm using the front cvds and they fit very nicely. You must also replace the yoks one-way outdrives to the X-ray ones too as the yoke on the x-ray cvds is larger and won't fit the yoks out-drive. Have fun!

The CVDs fit? Wow, never knew that, gotta try that one. And the oneway out drives fit perfectly?

Thats good, since I have a lot of play from my CVD to my one way outdrives. Also my CVD pins are constantly coming loose.

Default HInge Pins

Does anyone know where I can get some stronger hinge pins for the car? I am running the CGM car on graphite and the car is really handling good. I have a few minor adjustments to make, but I think the car is great. I am just looking for a little stronger hinge pin kit for the car.

As of now there is only one set available for the SD from Yokomo, and I don't know of any other aftermarket hinge pins available. I too believe they could be a little stronger.

I think yokomo sold some lunsford Ti hingepins for the old belt car. I'm not sure what sized would carry over but it's worth a shot. Pops, I think Billy had some at one time, they might be in the "bargain" bin now since they're older parts.

looks like there's an adjustable battery tray on it, nice. It's hard to tell what else is different on it though.

If I remember right the ones for the arms are not long enough for the SD. The last set for the SD I got were marked HD, but seem the same as the orginals.

I like my RS chassis. It's what I use outdoors. I just hope the newer chassis allows the battery to be placed even more forward.

Question for you guys.. does anyone know of any after market SD caster blocks that are 2?
