Does that ESC have a digital display on it? I haven't seen one of those before.

Isn't that the keyence?
It says Hello to you (how cool is that)
I just started using a GM SX12 in my Rayspeed and WOW is all I will say. I had the QC2 before and now it is going into my B4 when it arrives.
They SX12 has a great little function when used with the GM Commander which allows me to turn up or down the amount of amps which is great for tuning in for Stock then 19T or Hot Mods.
I love this ESC so far. I will have to see how well it handles the rigors of a true race weekend, since I have been rained out the last two weekends I hope my track will have races this weekend.
I know that HotRod Hobbies in Sagus is going to raing TC on Saturdays starting next month which is great for me cause my local track only runs on Sudays and let just say Sundays are a busy day for me already.
I still love my Rayspeed & I am not quite ready for such a master peice of the SDW so I will jsut wait till the Rayspeed II comes out next month and give that a try besides it is much mor ewithin my budget. LOL $460 compaired to $130ish I will take the Rayspeed for sure.
Take Care All & GOD Bless

does the SDW have holes drilled out for the third-middle deck?

Thanks!

i tired the ssg on carpet with cs22s and found it to flexy and tried the cgm on carpet bu found it to stiff (with cs22 tyres would be better with foams)

do you think that the rayspeed is stiff enough? with cs22 tyres?

I got the ssg right and i got it setup like the "standard Diff Setup" that comes with the kit..I got that bad ass hudy setup system (the gajillion dollar one) and the nose of the chassis hits the board..why and how?? The setup calls for 1* front suspension mounts and 2 degree rear toe in...where do you get teh 1* front mounts in aluminum? I found the stuff on speedtech but they dont have the 1*...where else do they have the al ones?
Or is there a better setup i should look at? Its primarily gonna be on asphalt. Should i get a front one way too?

The stock plastic front mount is a 1deg mount. I believe that Yokomo only sells the aluminum mount in 0deg so you will have to shim it to get the one deg of kickup.

SPARX - Pay close attention to the trimming you'll have to do for the arms and the hole enlargement of the C hubs. Go for 62 to 64mm at once for the shock lengths, using the tips some of the guys have shared. And, oh yes, be prepared to cut an ear off the servo you'll be using.

RACER - No holes for the middle deck on the SDW. . . . Barely enough room as the drive shaft sits much lower compared to a Black or SSG special.

Cheers,

JOELT

don't take the whole triangle piece out, just cut the tube piece so your shock can extend longer. I cut my tube all the way off, others cut it in half, but you still need the triangle piece installed or the shock shaft will be able to move around the O ring and cause excessive O ring wear.

Thanks for the tip's, the postman should arrive in less than an hour
I hope i can speed up the building process by using my old diffs and shocks because tomorrow is the only available practice-session before DHI Cup. Anything i should change on the car for CS22's on carpet?
