a gower
I don't know the part # but it wouldn't be an SD part. Use the gold one out of the SD412 set and you'll be fine. The upper sway bar kit has the bar pointing to the front. The stock and Rayspeed bars point to the rear of the car.

sorry it could just be me being stupid, but sd412 is called the front and rear wire set, nothing about upper and lower? are they the same set just where you have them? so for upper i would have it pointing forwards and lwoer pointing backwards.

i can only find one set, not upper and lower

The upper sway bar set is from the old belt drive car. It is wider than the stock or rayspeed swaybars. The stock and Rayspeed bars will point to the rear when mounted on the front of the car. I don't know if Yokomo even sells the upper kits anymore.

That would be a yokomo green spring. I don't think the rayspeed springs were out when I made that setup.

On the SSG SD, what length should I make the front and rear shocks? Using the long shock bottoms.

Who here has a "light" CGM? , mine weighs in at 1580 with rubbers and body. The only lightweight parts I have left to buy are the main shaft and rear input shafts. How many grams can i expect to lose getting these two parts?

if you buy a carbon shaft, probably 8g, for the input shaft I don't know, somethingg lie 3-5g.
rcmaniax.ch does make carbon shaft and they say on their website how much weight you will loose.

gram CGM reporting in sir.

Mine's all stock parts apart from one aluminum battery post and the Tobee dogbones/input shafts and main shaft. It has to be in the batteries (making it under weight) as I only run 540 stock with 1500mah packs (the rules).

If running mod means I'd have to buy a bucket load of stuff to get down (instead of up) to weight I don't think I'd ever bother.

Increased capacities/runtimes be damned, what it appears people need is just lighter ones or just change the weight limit upwards for mod then you don't have to spend a fortune trying to make weight.

I've given up on lightening up my cgm. its currently around the 1620g mark depending on which rubber tire, 27t stock motor and gp 3300 pack i am using. there is aalso a personal transponder mounted in the car.

being one of the fatter cars on the track means you don't lose too often when being hacked

anyone know of a place that can cut out graphite upper and lower decks?

i would like to convert my SDW for carpet, but then again i guess i should wait for the SD conversion kit.

Your absolutely correct about surviving a hack. I can't remember the last time I was hacked and lost.

The guy with the softest tires will usually win the hack war.



PS What's the deal with the center one-way shaft. It looks awesome, and would definantly free up the car. Any reports from Team Yokomo drivers on its performance.
