What would be a good sorex tire to start with?

Thanks!
For cool days and evenings 28R - For warm to hot days try 36R. Sorex inserts such as Type B Firm are great, or Yoke Firms, or I like Xenon Grays when it gets really hot.

Hi,

I am looking for a new motor mount for my CGM... the one from Yokomo looks nice but... the price is quite high... Is there any alternative? The NIKI´s motor mount is nice but you have to dremel a little bit... and this destroys the nice blue color. Which manufacturer offers a good one?

Thanks
Chris

Default another question for SDW owners

Sorry to bug you guys with yt anther qustion.
Does the W come with optional rear toe blocks? either alumin or graphite(plastic)
If not, what is the kit block? 2deg, 3 deg.....?

next, will he normal Yoke alumin rear toe bocks fit, or is it a seperate part number.
Im hoping that the kit will accept some SD parts, as i got a heap of rear toe blocks etc that i could use once i pick mine up.

next wide bumper, yes /No?

Thanks guys

Unfortunately, it only comes with one aluminum rear toe block. The regular rear SD blocks will fit, both aluminum and plastic. Definitely get a wide bumper. Save you alot of damaged parts.

The nitride ones are supposed to be smoother, or you could really polish the steel ones that came with the kit. Got the parts for it, use 'em. Also, you might want to try the Rayspeed O-rings for the shafts. They do not have as much friction as the stock ones, but their life is shorter on durability.

Had my first run in my new CGM last night on our carpet track (where were you btw simon?), what an anti-climax Busted my servo in the first corner pile up

Are the Rayspeed shock towers much better than the standard CGM ones? I have to say the std CGM ones arent that great looking and probly weigh a ton compared to CF towers.

Or could you just use the SSG towers?
