The car weighed in at about 1600g with a Novak Brushless. I suspect that it will be a lot lighter with my Nosram Dominator Evolution and a stock motor.

Yokomo USA is supposed to get some of the new motors in next week, at least some of the T6 motors anyway.

I'm 99% sure it is but I haven't seen anything saying they are the same.

beer_drinker:
someone else has the same problem as you with 3600's
http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...threadid=58621
seems he solved it by traying the cells.
Also, it now seems very likely that your cells didn't come with the same amount of charge compared with each other. some cell would peak and some not during charger, causing erratic discharge.
I wouldn't venture to charge them or use them anymore b4 traying it, and making sure each cell is not dead 1st.

BTW, nice car, I lightened mine by using:
alu input shafts(Tobee), alu light shaft(niki), alu motor mount(niki), titanium screws, low profile servo and hopefully Alu rear dogbones.

Hi Guys,

On Yokomo's next shipment, we should be seeing almost all of the SDW parts as well. We will try to get them on the new website as soon as possible

ritchie is right, the arms are not 'exactly' the same. but the 2 and only differences I see when holding them up to one another is-
1. the location of the hingepin holes, which are placed approximately 2 maybe 3mm closer to the 'body' of the arm &
2. the deletion of a lower shock positioning hole and actually if any of you have the HG arms, it looks like on the SDW arms those two lower holes are placed in the spaces between the holes on the HG arms. So I guess that would make a 3rd difference.
Hope you guys understood that?
But at any rate, you can still use the HG arms on the SDW; you'll just increase the arm span on each side by 2-3mm. You'll also be taking a risk of weakening the arm (perhaps) since the material you would have to shave off on the one end would leave about 3mm for the hingepin to cling to. So is it worth it- that's up to you

Alot of the factory guys are running the standard lenght arms with the standard suspension mounts on their cars when they want to lose some steering, I'm being told the shorter arms give the car ALOT of steering.

If I understand the SDW short arm discussion correctly. I will be able to install the short arms on my CGM by changing the suspension mounts and arms; is that correct?
