buy the way it is an ssg chassis
The centre stiffener makes the car hold a tweak after a crash, get rid of it, it makes very little difference to the chassis strength either.

how true...for an SSG/ black SD. I've struggled with my black SD for so much but right after switching to the CGM, voila.
Same springs, a bit different roll centers, and that's about it.

I run on the same track as adam, the grip is very low and foams are used in all classes except 540. Reason being ( I think) is because we have a local foam tyre manufacturer (frewer racing) and they are quite cheap. The compounds are usually referred to in colours, black is a 39 shore rear tyre. On my SD SSG getting the car to turn using black rears and gold(30 shore front tyre) fronts didnt work with most setups, I came very close but the front tyres still scrubbed a lot, so a lot of people used black all round. The black tyre front and rear gives the car a lot of steering but the fronts wear too fast (maybe last 6 runs in mod from full size if you're lucky).

However today I ran my SDW for the first time using black rear/ gold font and the car had more than enough steering, only used around 75% dual rate. And the front tyres did not scrub at all while cornering. This car is amazing, it goes better than it looks, which is a big achievement, and my laptimes dropped considerably . I have done 4 packs on this car and its much faster to drive and I feel much more confident going into corners than I did with my SSG SD. The only thing on this car is the battery brace, I rolled it once and the battery fell out, anyway, I will have some foam and a 3rd battery post soon hopefully.

I haven't done much testing with the new towers but running the shocks in the second from inside hole (there are 4 in the new rear tower) both front and rear should be a good starting point.
Thanks Matt!

do you have to purchase a swaybar set or does the kit come with any extras?

would anyone happen to have the part numbers for swaybars that are needed?

Thanks in advance!

Man, that's pretty neat, although the ballends they send sith the car totally sucks, just if they made'em a little more Heavy duty.. I've ordered regular balls and replacing the cups with RPM's, it does even hold a cambersetting in a crash..

For the front use the Rayspeed Lower Swaybar kit RS-25 and for the rear use the Upper Sway Bar Kit ZS-412FSP. You will need to find 2 colets for the rear swaybar to keep it from sliding left and right.

Or you could just remove only the alluminium blue posts, and sandwich back the stiffener together with screws, washer and nuts. Your chassis will be much stiffer now ( 6mm thick in the middle ). However, some people like stiff chassis ( carpet, super smooth track ) and some don't ( bumpy track, rough surface ).

Default Assembly Q for the SDW...

For the guys here who have purchased an SDW, did anyone have any fitting problems with the steering tubes being mated to the bellcranks? Thanks in advance for the help.

had a SD before. just like to try different cars, or in my case build them. spend more time building and admiring, than actually race them. also, you tend to spend more money hopping up the cars. might as well go all out and get everything at once.
