The CGM is stiffer and probably better on carpet but it's good on asphalt as well. The Black SD is in the middle of the chassis stiffness range and should work good on asphalt as well as carpet.

The open ball ends are the sway bar ball ends and they are a tighter fit. They do sell them seperatly but I don't know the part # off hand

Not in a hurry to find them yet. Do you know what i mean by the roll bar collars? They look like they stop the bar moving left and right.

Yeah, I know what you're talking about but I don't know if they sell them seperatly or not. I have some but I don't remember what they came in.

Its not on any of the Yokomo parts lists. The newest one iv found is the one with the drift parts in it.

dan the collars come with the rayspeed swaybar set but if you have a hard time finding the collars separately you can just use
collars used for the throttle linkage used on gas cars.

I suggest you get the Rayspeed swaybar set, it fits much better than the Yoke upper or lower on the front and blue collars come with it. The upper set works very good on the rear, but you still need to buy collars for the rear set. I don't believe Yokomo offers a seperate collar set unless it is available for the GT.

what's the difference between 0 trailing steering knuckles and 1 degree knuckles?
I just realised i have both, might want to rip 'em out of the package to try.

the inline (0) blocks will make the car more aggressive, while the trailing (1) blocks will settle the steering down slightly.

the 1 trailing steering knuckles have the axles slightly moved back from the steering pivot point. and the 0 is perfectly in the middle. the zero should react quicker but the 1 trailing should have more on power steering. its almost like changing the caster

just try them both back to back and see which one you like better, it only takes a minute to switch them.

does anyone know what degree of caster the front hub carrier has on the stock SD? just looking through my parts and realized i have some 4 degree graphite ones. also, just got the RS new geo. frt. shock tower and on the package it says (FOR SSS-SIZE), does this mean i can't use the longer SS shocks? and the tower comes with hex nuts & rubber grommets, what are the grommets for?
something i thought was a bit weird is why does Yokomo package the frt. steering block w/ the rear hub carrier instead of with the frt. hub carrier (#SD-4134G)?
