Also, the ceramic ball-bearing set, does it comes complete with 'EVERY' ball-bearing for the car?

The RS shock bladders arent' bad, I just think there are many other ways to tune your car other than the hardness of the shock bladders. If I remember right the ceramic kit doesn't include the diff bearings or the steering bearings. I know it doesn't include the steering bearings but I could be wrong about the diff bearings though.

hey guys, a local track is having a exibitition oval race with a local nascar driver, (kasey kane), what would you think is a good oval set up for carpet and rubber tires with no compound, i was thinking about running the right side of the car "long" and the left side "short" or standard.

I have the CGM, a RS conversion for it if I ever want to go back to that, the old school YRF2-special (Front wheel drive baby!), the MR4BC-special, and their SSG 1/12 car(I forget it's name right now). In the past I've had the YR4-M2 USA, the YR4-M2 Pro, the original MR4TC, the MR4TC with the SSG conversion, an MX4, and a couple different YZ10's. The SDW will be here in a week or two

I forgot one, I had the Yokomo Rally car too, it was based on the MR4TC with longer shocks and had a cool Ford Focus rally body. It actually ran pretty good on the local offroad track.

ive ran both on carpet, and have to say that i think the ssg is better in the cold on carpet (what it is like when we get there) but by the end of the day when the track has warmed up alot the cgm is alot better. so it really depends on how hot the conditions get.

Hi Guys,

Some of you might already know this, Yokomo USA is hoping to receive the car kit by the end of next week (around the17th or so) From what I understand the car kit components are coming from Japan, but the graphite is made here in the US (it is a known fact that all graphite chassis for all major manufactures are made here in Southern California (San Diego)) So while we are waiting for kit components, Yokomo Japan is waiting for graphite components. So I believe we will all be receiving car kits right around the same time as they do.

I will definitely keep you all updated

Steve Wang
