Quick question.
What is better for indoor carpet racing? SSG or the CGM?
Thanx
Mike

Considering going MOD motor and was curious what gear ratios you guys would run for a 11X1 D5 I have a 72 or 73 spur and every range of Pinion just trying something new, I got bumped up to Expert in the local club level (which is more like intermediate everywhere else) and everyone is running MODs and I can;t even keep up with a 19T, bummer for me as I love racign Stock and no one in Expert class wants to run Stock. So there is my delema.
Thanks in advance for your responces,
Stephen <><

CGM no tweek, and very agressive.
Heavy but you can work it down with Ti stuff and tiny electronics.
I went Tiny and love it.
What I use in my Rayspeed SD is
Futaba Low Profile Digital Servo S9550
GM Racing SX12 (smaller and lighter than the QC2)
KO 302f Reciever
That is as light of Electronics as I think is humanly possible without taking everything out of its cases.
HTH

ALSO JAYBEE What is the part number for the 4degree hub carriers?
Thanks

The CGM chassis is much stiffer and it won't tweek in a crash. The CGM kit also includes all graphite components were the SSG car has regular plastic.

I would start with an overall ratio around 8.0 to start with your 11x1.

9 times out of 10 I run the hingepin for the castor block in the lower hole and space the steering block in the down position.

For more steering should I move the front and rear arms foward or back?
Thanks,

Are you running a rear sway bar? I've found that a rear sway bar will usually give me more rear bite. You can also try moving the rear arms forward a bit, that should give you more onpower rear traction.
