Hey guys what's the proper technique to measuring/ adjusting droop with the shocks and tires on? And should that measurement be the same with the shocks and tires off?

To measure your droop with tires on set the car fully loaded and race ready on a flat surface. Lift up the front end slowly and the amount of distace the chassis lifts before the tires come off the surface is your front droop, same thing applies for the rear. If you're trying to compare this reading to a droop gauge I don't think they match up at all

I'm running 110t on my SSG. I'll try fitting in a 112t on my next rebuild. No modification required although I do have to remove the top deck when changing spur gears

I stacked an 85T/48p and a 112t/64p together and they have virtually the same diameter. So I think if the 112T fits (only two teeth bigger than my current) then 85t might be your biggest 48p gear.

i wanna say i had a 114 or 116 on mine. i think you can fit bigger but the pinion you have to use screws up your gearing

i don't think you can use the yokomo ride/droop guage. but using a assocated guage or a style like that one, with car fully loaded/race ready, from back of car measure ride height. 5mm, now holding tires down raise chassis till it tops out and slide the ride height guage under chassis. should say somewhere around 8-9 (at least that wheres mine is set.) you can do the same for front but you need to take bumper off or do it from the side.

Last one. Showing off the TRF shocks, which has hassle free adjustments with your droop and ride height. And the Team Suzuki Rear Hub, which was a pain to find! (got it in a swap with 2 used stockers, alm input shaft, Springs & alum drive cups) BUT WAS WORTH IT!!

Now I have to get my hands on the new rear hubs!! I know so much unsprung weight, but I think the Ti driveshaft and bones will make up for it.

Default Weight

Lem2 - How much does it weigh, with batterys, shell and tyres. My CGM is almost an identical config, but I don't have a good set of scales .....

Yea... I'm curious too....

My CGM (without a body) weighs 1465 grams.... That is with... Tobee aluminum center shaft, dogbones, swaybar mounts, Suzuki front and rear aluminum hubs, Square titanium axels and input shafts, Titanium screws, Modded BRP front bumper, BRP nerf wings, No rear bumper or sway bar, modded steering with lunsford rod and dubro captured ball ends, rpm ends on the rest of the car, Novak GT7, Xxtra and Futaba S9550....

That should give an idea, I'm pretty close to him and think you are close to both of us.... Oh yea... Jaco's cut down to 27mm in front and trued to 59mm currently....

Thanks rough51 and ritchie.

Cause i'll probably be using it with a 23turn motor and a gear ratio of about 6:1.

Dont have a fleet of pinions to use with.currently have 48p-24t,25t,30t,31t,32t,33t--64p-10t,21t,22t,23t,24t,25t,26t,31t. Used those when i ran the x-ray and 12th scale.

Tried with a 48p/80t spur and 31t pinion today, seems like the motor will not fit the motor mount for optimum gear mesh. If it could, the motor will be way off the centre of the car.

So i guess it will be 64p 98t spur with 38t pinion for a 6.07:1 ratio. Btw, will be using Kawada spurs and pinions.
