You get lightweight chassis and all of the graphite parts.

I've tried the SSG, Black, Rayspeed, and CGM and of those I prefer the CGM. It doesn't tweek at all like the doubledeck cars can and has worked well for me on all track surfaces.

My sentiments exactly. This car is so good.

During my final last Sunday (8 minutes) it started to drizzle, yet with a completely dry set up there was no let off in performance or lap times. It just stays right all the time.

Johnbull, Matt:

Im coming so close to get the PRO4, I got the CGM finally, I hope you guys are right about the CGM. I raced the SSG currently, Ive problem running the car in a straight line, the car goes left or maybe right after impacts. I really hope with the CGM I can finisn races in better position, 1 sec a lap faster will do.

Opps, Can I post CGM here?

I saw Masami's Japan Open winning car in the Japanese site. It is exactly the same car he used in the World with the IFMAR "tech mark" still on the chasis c/w Yokomo red 3600 cells and GM12 speedo. I think he used std front/rear arm which sectional cut-off in the middle of the arm. Kentech will have the picture upload soon, I guess.

What steering servo are you running??? Also check the kingpins and steering knuckles and make sure they move freely.... Had the same problem... It ended up being my Hitec steering servo....

AMEN TO THE Hitec Servo (the never centering servo)
I have moved to the Futaba S9550 with is a digital Low profile(which frees up so much space) high torque metal gear servo that has yet to let me down and has been tested with full cartwheel testing technic that puts way too much pressure on the servo. It goes like this, first get up to full speed and go down the back straitaway and have someone clip your front end with an inprompto left hand turn and watch as your as car does three or four cartwheels down the straitaway and fully test your servo and ball cups. Mine has passed has yours? LOL

True. My SSG feel faster on acceleration because it's light, but I broke my own lap record after the 1st time my CGM (this damn heavy car) hit the track

I race with Hitec programmable digital 5925 servos. 10 kg and 60 degrees transit time of 0.08 second - plenty fast enough for me.

The centering of my servos has never been a problem. I think they're awesome to be honest - as good (better in many cases) than servos that cost twice the price.

Wierd problems when the cars pull to one side normally suggest tweek, slop in the steering, or binding etc - it's easier in many cases just to blame the servo....

Tip: Racing on carpet, sometimes the pile of the carpet can make the car pull to one side. It makes me laugh when I see seasoned racers scratching their heads!!

Now see I have tried six different Hitec servos and the latest BB77 just died. I like there price but They nevered seem to center correctly. I used them in four different cars/buggy and still had the same problem. I think it could be tweek but not likely since when I put in the Futaba S9550 it centered perfectly and never have had a problem since.
There is a reason why the expencive servos are exactly that Expencive. In my 8th scale I run nothing but $100+ servos (Airtronics 93459/60) because they never let me down and are top notch quality. You get what you pay for is a very good saying. Just my two pennies.
Thanks,
Stephen <><
