Just called the shop but not available hopefully the stuff will arrive this evening along with my RS rear towers! See you soon!

Has anyone here tried using the SQUARE mounting brackets for a small fan on the CGM? Could you please be kind enough tpo post a picture? Thanks..... Lem

SDW comes Yokomo Ceramic bearings, plain metal shield. They sure spin smooth, just need to se how long they last with another bearinglube. The original was pretty "greasy"

the exploded view in the back of the instruction manual has all the parts listed with part numbers,

the sdw comes with part number BB-1060P which would be the "SUPER PRECISON BEARING"

off the yokomo site they list the ceramic bearing as BB-106C

the standard bearing is BB-106

and just for info sake, they have a teflon bearing BB-106T

these were all numbers for the axle bearings. 6x10. some had a 2 or a 4 after them for 2 pack or 4 pack.

but with all that said, they also list the part number for the diff gears as the standard plastic gear. and i swear mine look more like the graphite gears then the plastic ones.

and having just pulled ceramic bearing out of a cgm for the sdw and putting the sdw bearings in the cgm i can tell you the sdw is free-er rolling.

so i guess what i;m saying is

just took a new pic on my SDW.
Only need to finish the cable-routing and mount a servo/transponder mount that should be on its way from Rainbow Ten in a couple of days

quick question:
I'm running Yokomo springs.
Front:
Green springs
5mm ride height
silver roll bar
6.5mm droop

Rear:
Yellow springs
5mm ride height
copper bar
5mm droop

Since the green springs are much stiffer than yellow, why is it that on the car, the rear end is WAY stiffer(ie harder to compress downwards) than the front(which feels very lame)? Is this normal?

I'm asking because i too much front traction off power, the car is fishtailing on a lot of corners. But the turn in as very good since i've switched from front Orange(which was nice, but has less turn in).

I only have the kit springs on at the moment but ever since I changed the front shocks to the top most hole (giving a more upright shock) I've noticed the front feels softer though technically it can't be.

Perhaps this is the case for you, just a thought.

Additional: Speaking of springs, I have a pair of the green springs coming from speedtech (these will be the only non-kit springs I have) and I have a question of my own.

All I remember from the 4wd off-road days is that if I have the stiffer springs up front (kit rear) I'll have less steering and if I put them on the rear (kit front) I'll have more. What I'd like to know from a on-road stand point is what could I expect to see if I did the same thing but more with regards this on-power off-power stuff?

I'm running twin diffs if this helps.

Thanks in advance.
