Yes, using the o ring. Using the bomber shaft, they make the Yokomo hollow graphite shaft. The problem comes from the inner diameter of the cups. The shaft is loose inside the cup and it wobbles at slow speeds. Perhaps your cups are smaller.

Hmmmmm... Now I get it. Yes it does that also, will putting O-rings on each side help? It only does that on slow speeds, hope it will not speed up the wear.

Good Luck to all racing this weekend!!

Well I hope to check out your CGM, I will be there from opening to closing since I need to finalize a set-up. I will bring my off road buggy just for fun.

Bluey_74,

I ran the MKII and the Ride TSX. The MKII works great for small to medium size tracks. Rotates around the turns very well and it is good in response. The Ride TSX seems a tad more stable, especially if you put on the GWIII wing from Yokomo. I usually run the MKII at tight SoCal tracks or the Tamiya layout with the traction is up, and the TSX at SoCal if the track is wide open

MKIII offers even more rotation around the turns and higher response (a bit too much for me) but others with the quicker reflex can really take advantage of it Quite a few of expert stock and 19T guys run them locally

i have a ssg sd and bought it from a freind of mine i stripped one of the bevel gears in the diff so i took it apart to rebuild and noticed that he dremmeled the back of the gear that connects to the input shaft. im goin to do the same but is this done to free up the drivetrain. his drivetrain was really free to begain with i dont want to do anything to change that

maybe its me but i dont see any part of the gear that can be dremmeled to reduce friction.

the ssg is very free out of the box.

the part where the bearing actually sits?

I've tried various shimming there and when I had only one shim the fit of the bearing was so tight that to get it off I ended up having to use so much force I damaged the sheild.

Perhaps he just means his friend has made it an easier fit?

you're running with 3300 batteries or similar because I run mine in 540 stock where you're only allowed 1500mah batteries and I had to add lead weight to mine to make it legal in box stock form.

Anyway about the only thing I can think of that I've never seen suggested for less weight is different rims. 6 spoke weighing less than dish rims for example. Well they feel lighter anyway.
