Well, by the looks from the pics from John D, the front arms are shorter, and the arm is molded a little different from the rear arm. It also looks like a custom arm mount is used for the new shorter arms. Interesting....

On the springs I was recommending I was talking about the RS springs, after rereading it I probably confused some people by saying the green springs is the softest. The RS green spring is the softest they sell, the Yokomo green spring is pretty stiff

On another note, the limited edition kit is not intended to replace the regular SD versions at all. Hopefully the shorter arms and wider suspension mount will be available seperately but the lowered gearboxes and lowered motormount will not be produced as spares, just a one time production run and that's it.

Adding weight.....

Now that I've got the suspension all sorted and the car is balanced left/right front/back I thought it's time to weigh the car (more accurately than the kitchen scales at least lol ).

I figured it would be under weight and it is by 40 grams only thing is seeing how as the car is balanced I thought there would be enough room to add the needed weight in the chassis slots but no (well not using lead shot anyway).

So any ideas for either alternate locations (space not exactly easy to come by in a CGM lol) and and types of weight would be appreciated.

Your CGM is UNDER weight wow, that's the first time I've heard that. Usually people are complaining they're too heavy. Mine is right at minimum weight with all the lightweight stuff I can find for it so I've never had to worry about where to place any lead, sorry.

Yup under weight (from the posts I've seen about losing weight I'm not surprized at the reaction )


But yeah it's running in 540 stock with only 1500 packs and a quantum pro sport clone by nosram (only cause it was easy to fit).. a minor problem but annoying now that everything else is right lol.

So what will happen if you break those parts? Is the car just going to become a shelf peice? Does anyone know when the new RS2 will be released?

Yes, if you break or bend a bulkhead or motormount you're done. I don't know when the RS version 2 is being released, sorry.

I friend of mine has posted on his website some videos I took from the pits and racing.
There is some good close footage from the cars.

John D.

Great pics. Well done. Fancy a race meeting in Malta over Easter Weekend ? It's not that far for you.

Mabuchi's car is underweight probably because of the 1500 cells. They are lots lighter than the GP3300s we are using. Possibly with foams it makes things lighter too.

We are racing again this weekend. Looks like rain so I have been working on adapting an underbody for the CGM.

Hi Shooky,

I think by your own admission you have only been into RC cars for a short while.

Once you've been around a bit, you'll realise that you don't need to do many changes to make a car behave like one that is completely new. That's why people get excited about new parts. The SDW may look like a Rayspeed conversion, but it is different, and those differences are what counts.
