I think you're wrong, the picture on the CML website obviously shows Chris Grainger's car (TIR ball studs, old school yokomo ball cups), not the specified car. Besides, the alumunium hinge pins holders are specified in the specs, and the car on the CML website doesn't have them.

ok, point taken that the car is not to replace the normal SD and its a change to get a copy of the car at the worlds.

So do you get the ally hinge pin holders or what????

also, will yokomo be doing spares??? if so we can just buy all the stuff and make up the car once it sold out

Looks like Easton was running just a regular SD, not even SDW.

very well said

Yes, Easton is runing the SSG with the Type E body. It is working better for him that the new SDW.

I heard from someone that Masami was saying that the SSG was better in the hotter conditions as the chassis was softer than the SDW.

haha, best race this season. 2 cars starting in 12-turn. I won with more than 3 laps to second..
I did mostly try MANY new setups. I got the car pretty dialed, but the last minutes it got pretty twitchy, especially the rear.
Moved the rear camberlink on the hub to the second innermost hole and put a 2 mm washer under the ball on hub. Got great reargrip, almost too much.
So if you have bad reargrip:
Move the hub camberlink more to the tower.
If very bad, try and put a washer under the hub link.
