Yes, those should be the SDW arm set which includes the redrilled shorter front arms.

just got confirmation that the SDW "conversion" type kit is the next project for Yokomo. It will be the aluminum lowered bulkheads and motor mount for a standard SD graphite chassis but it will have access so you can take the diffs out of the top of the bulkheads like the new BD instead of taking them apart. No word on pricing or release date yet but it will hopefully be soon.

Unhappy Just got the Rayspeed......

umm how do you guys mount the servo (re: the inner slot) it's way to big for any screw I've got in the tool box?

It looks like a washer would have to be used top and bottom of the chassis but that would not only spoil the look with having to use a non counter sunk screw but there would still be a hell of a gap it passes through in the chassis.

Edit: Just finished having a good look/test fit of parts and oh oh.

The CGM I am converting from has different shaped pieces for the top deck to mount to the front and rear gear boxes. The top deck lines up with the holes and steering post/motor mount as it should......

But because the rear gear box mount is slightly higher (I don't know why as on the CGM the holes aren't even used) I would have to add maybe 1-1.5 mm worth of spacers on top of all the other points the top deck lines up with.

The question is would using spacers effect how the top deck is supposed to work?

Or should I file the mounting points on the rear (and to a lesser extent the front) down so that the other mounting points are flush with the deck?

Hope all that makes sense as I don't fancy having to buy two whole gearboxes I'll never need to get the SSG mounts.

rcmaniax.ch does make carbon shaft and they say on their website how much weight you will loose.
RC Maniax shaft: broke two of those (the metal starts turning in the carbon tube).

The inner screw hole is elongated to fit different size servos. You don't use any washers on it.

The CGM has a different FWD top deck mount than the SSG, Black or Rayspeed. The correct foward mount is included when you buy a new transmission case. Very few people convert from a CGM to a Rayspeed. Most convert from the SSG type to a Rayspeed or a CGM. So that is probably why that part is not included since the Rayspeed came before the CGM.
