Parts finish was ok, it was not as highly polished as the Yokomo ones. But at least it's machined and is lighter than the stock steel?magnesium?? ones. I don't have a scale to try quantify it though.

Blue is definitely better than grey

Some minor issues:
1. Some of the screw holes are not threaded/tapped deep enough. As such 2 stock titanium screws I was using had to be replaced with shorter ones. Including the longest button head screw with the spring support.

2. The motor clamp's last fin is too large and touches against the rear-right chassis brace. Nothing that my dremel couldn't fix.

Overall, it looks damned pretty on my CGM now and being lighter surely helps.
All for only US$15, way more bang for the buck than Yokomo's!!

I don't know if it's manufactured by the same company, but the mount shown in the photo looks almost identical to the mount made/marketed by Integy http://integy.automated-shops.com/cg...46104050152.67

I'm quite sure they're the same, but go for the one who sells it the cheapest: Niki!

Yokomo has a new hollow graphite shaft out, by the looks of it, it's the same as the Team Bomber shaft so it should be really good.

ice age is just starting here It looks like I might be able to visit in march like I planned. There's a class in Utah I might get to go to so I'll take leave either before or after the class. The best part is the AF is flying me to Utah, I just have to get over to cali. Were you able to preorder an SDW? You guys should have them next week, I'll see mine in a couple of weeks since it has to go from japan, to the states, then to korea.
