Here is a good one for you lot. Running a SD worlds today indoors with a spool changed front drive shafts to the standard steel ones and in 3 mins of running i had sheered both pins that go in to the axle and also did one of the pins on the bone that goes in to the out drive on the spool, the wear on the pins was stupid. Can anyone help i was thinking that it was dodgy drive shafts. I was only running a 19t so nothing stupid.

As discussed on this board many times, the Yokomo hardened universal shafts will hold up much better than about any other drive shafts out there. You need to grind down the front ball of each shaft a little to fit the front diff. Running a spool is also much harder on the shafts than a diff or one-way.

Angry Well with the CGM every little bit of space helps.....

Anyone else bugged by that little moulding bump in the center of the chassis that intrudes into the area set aside for the radio gear (it takes up about 5mm of space), Then theres the slightly angled chassis side or the rib in the chassis just in front of the motor (a real pain if running 540 stock with their longer than mod/pro stocks cans).

I saw a pic on here a while ago of an after market tub chassis for the CGM/SSG anyone know who makes it?

Guess I shouldn't have got the Tobee dogbones then.

The Tobee ones are fine, but if your running something other than stock, especially with a spool, they are a little too light. I think you will be fine with a 540 motor.

Man, this sucks totally. Managed to get to a track today and test some more things, bodys for example. Rayspeed Accord (Ride?) must be the best body i've driven this year, just a little less steering than the Mazda.
The totally bad thing is i manged to bend my YMP rear-shaft, not the shaft but the wheelaxle, canät remember i hit something either, so. Anyone know where i can find new YMP shafts?

I don't think spares are quite well available yet. Ask Steve if he has got some coming in.

i ran the tobee's front and rear at nationals in portland with no problem, but when i raced at the home track with a one way or spool i snapped three of them before switching back to the stock ones. running a m-540 motor i see no problem with them breaking. going to run the tobees with steel axles in the rear and stock or mips in the front of the worlds.

anyone have or know of where i can find the old alum battery brace that came with the mr4tc special.

Yokomo USA should have SDW parts sometime this week so speedtech should have at least some parts this week as well.

Matt:

Can you suggest some tyre inserts for a low-med grip track?

What do you think of the Yok-037M / Sorex "C" Medium?
