I agree with the guys, go for the CGM. Easier to drive (and maintain), straight from the box.

. . . . . That's unless the twin deck version you're referring to is an SDW.

Cheers,

yes , most of the top guys in my country race CGM on asphalt.
THere is hardly an SSG or Rayspeed to be seen. There were, but less with the success we're having with CGM.

MR4TC SD SSG, MR4TC SD Black, MR4TC SD CGM, MR4TC SD CM, MR4TC SD WCSP. . . . (Mi2 Carbon on the side)
and still uses the CGM----- which is reason enough to go for The CGM!!!

The only advantage I see the CGM have over the SDW is easier to rebuild, replace the diff.

It's the best for Asphalt!!! If you race on a smooth asphalt, May I suggest use a Swaybar that is thick in the Front. I use a Ti Swaybar in Front made of SPOKES for an MTB!!!

i bought the CGM and SSG version......I didn't receive the cars yet.....

I was thinking about use all graphite parts on my SSG.....but now I think will be better trying both cars and maybe this combo to decide what is the best.....

If I choose the cgm then I'll sell the SSG and buy hopups to make my CGM lightweight




regarding SPUR GEARS.......what is the smallest and biggest 48p spur that fit the car???? something around 70T is ok (i.e: 65T to 75T range)????

Yes!! Sell the SSG and buy Lightweight parts for the CGM like Ti Screws, Input shafts and so on.... Good Luck and enjoy the Build!

The smallest you could go for is 70, anyting smaler and your motor might touch the shaft. Biggest I think is 77T 48 pitch. I posted a gear chart in 48pitch a few pages back.

LEM2 - Couldn't help it. The SD is simply the way to go for my driving style. Even the CM (drift kit) handles reasonably well on asphalt. . . . . And all I did was put in 40wt oil on those plastic shocks and replace the drift tires with real rubbers.

I'm using a 66 spur and 34 pinion in my CGM for 540 stock if that gives you some idea of what might fit.

Default 68 tooth

Salvadori,

im using exactly what Mabuchi suggested, 68/30!!
**Note** i am running the 2.55 internal drive. By D Square or whoever it is!!

I am curious to know what sort of gearing people suggest for 19t on a LARGE track.
My club uses the local 1/8 Nitro circuit, so its a bloody huge track.

Suggestions?

Thanks
