thanks, funny you say that, friday nite i stripped a 70t spur on my sdw, only one i had was a 77 (yes it fit) car was slower and didn't drive a good. sunday installed a 70t, all is good again, so i was about to drive to tacoma tonight to buy a couple of 70's for the cgm but i'll get a couple of 72's to throw in. the puyallup is this weekend you coming up to visit, is rodney going to have stuff for sale? love my cgm, but the sdw is one tough car, full speed into right hand sweeper, glitch, opps, sudded turn left into wall, no damage except loose king pins

Damm right the SDW is a tough car. But i have broken bits on it.

So far broke a C hub and a steering block also a rear wishbone but put standard SD wishbones on it and it works much better on carpet now.

Ran my newlybuilt CGM with a spool!! It was awesome, lotsa rip out of a corner and IMHO is more driveable than with a one way.
Hats off to Matt Howard your spool set up was great!

Just run it in stock, too bad could not catch up when I got stuck in the sand bag!! But it was a great run overall!

And the TRF shocks worked well!! I'm happy i did not break anyting, used the new arms and it took some beating and not a scratch!

Hope all youyr runs went well!

WIll the SDW prop shaft fit the CGM? and what is it's part number?

What is the difference in driving with a spool compared to a diff? How do you build a spool?

With a spool you'll have less steering going into a corner and alot more coming out. Most of the time it is faster than running a diff in front. I built mine by using the losi sandpaper spool pads. Basically you take out the diff balls, put the sandpaper pads over top the diff rings with the rough side facing the diff gear and tighten the diff screw all the way down. I've never broken a diff halve like this and the wear only got noticeable after a month or two of racing with a mod motor. Even then the diff halves or only like $4 for a pair. The other way you can go is with the speedtech steel spool. You'll never break this baby but it weighs quit a bit more than my way of doing it.

spektrum; i hope it live up to all the hype +$300 investment is on the way...yes! no more waiting for free channel... yes! no more worrying about glitches... yes!

hum, to run a 70t spur you cant be running anything less than a 11t mod; gear mesh would suck after that. (70t is ideal for stock and 19t).

no road trip for me, practicing for the cactus classic / focus on dirt for the next few months.

ive found other setup changes that improve performance; ill share them as ive tested more an am positive that there is an advantage.

Should I change my set up? With the spool? ( droop, ride height, or springs) I ordered the rayspeed springs ( grey and red) hopefully this will allow me to fine tune a little more. I love the orange green combo!!

You might need to change your setup to give you more offpower steering since thats what the spool lacks. Checkout my spool setups on www.yokomo.tk to compare them to what you're running already.
