I received the new heavy duty arms today, they're quite a bit thicker than the stock arms. You only have to use one of those little screws to hold in the hub carriers too, the other side is captured like AE is doing now.

Can anyone explain to me why I'm trying to spend $35- 40 on driveshafts compared to spending about half of that on the stock ones? Maybe I'm fortunate, but I haven't brok'n a single part on this car but yet I have 3 sets of different driveshafts and haven't got a chance to use them. Anyone with bad experiences with the stock SSG shafts/axles please stand up... I want extras but I'm into saving a bit of cash too

Over Gear,

sorry, you cant get that chassis in the U.S., they wont ship them here directly. If you know sombody in the U.K. they could ship it to you though but i think the exchange rate is extremely bad right now and it would be very expensive. There are a couple of other chassis available to you that would be just fine. The atheena projects chassis and top plate(click on the link in my signature) is extremely nice and very stiff also the yokomo cgm chassis is very rigid but a bit heavy. There is going to be a new Rayspeed chassis released soon but im not sure how stiff it is going to be.

Good Luck,

Blake

Can someone inform if the Yokomo tyres such as ZR-138 G have markings on the side wall of the make of the tyre and the type.

Matt, I've installed those arms and tested last week! I like them. My cgm runs more consistent. Maybe this is the first time replacing all four arms together!
Also, two 2mm collars are now replaced by one 4mm collars!?

Are there '5G' or '7G' on the tyre?
I think '5G' stands for 138G and '7G' for 139G?
Sorry I'm not so sure...

I am trying to have a one tyre rule for 2005 in Greece and I need to know if there is anyway to identify the different types of YOKOMO tyres from the side wall markings.

For example Take Off have markings such as CS 22 or CS 27 etc.

If you were to restrict tyre I would go with Sorex if price is not a problem.
99% of the people in my place run Sorex 36/40R , and the other 1% ( me ) is starting to believe they are stupid not to.

They're $10.50 retail for 2 arms, one front and one rear, so you'll need two packages to do your car.
