A good "guess" at the street price for the conversion will be in the $275-$300 range.

The conversion comes with a new chassis, among other things, that's why it's so pricey

Quick weight question....

as I don't have access to a set of accurate scales at the moment (and probably wont have for another couple of weeks).

What's the difference in weight between a CGM chassis and a Rayspeed or SSG chassis. I've converted to a Rayspeed which feels lighter of course but I had to add approx 70 grams to my CGM as it is.

I have some 5 gram (sticky backed) lead weights to use so a rough starting point would be appreciated.

Edit: While I think about it, if the chassis needs re-tweaking at any stage is there a particular order in which the top deck screws should be tightened?

in the past all the prices on the yokusa site were full retail, and i'm not sure where that price comes from, it is my understanding that they are working on changing the prices to the actual hobby store price or close to it. they listed the sdw and bd for what it was or should have been selling for in the shops. also some shops got more or are asking more for it because it was a limited edition (sdw)

humm,

first; yokusa will only display/sell @ retail price. it keeps distributors happy and consumers shopping at lhs/ect.

second; kits wont be sold to consumers to enduce them to shop at lhs/ect. but they will support you with parts/ect,

third; just be happy thier are places like speedtech.com who make it possible to race yokomo cars

If anyone is looking for a CGM, or SD "black speacial" contact me.
I will sell the CMG with three "team matched" 6-cell packs, new airbrushed Mazda 6 body, and a NEW D-3.5 12D motor for $300.00.

Additional:

Well I dunno I've tried every combination I can think of but the chassis sits flat without the top deck on but as soon as I tighten the screws holding the deck the chassis can rock/wobble on the flat set up surface.

I've tried tightening the screws in different patterns but to no avail. Inside to outside, front to back, left to right and X patterns etc.

The only time it doesn't rock is when I tighten up the motor mount and steering post screws but leave the ones going into the gearbox mounts.

Suggestions anyone please.

I reckon its because when you tighten the screws in a particular order you are putting some twist inadvertantly by tightening.

I dont think its possible to get all the tweak out, because there is a certain amount of compliance and tolerance in the plastic parts.

You'll probably find if you tighten up all the screws go racing and come back, the chassis will retweak within 5mins.

just my 2pence worth

some of that is wrong. I'd at least like to have it straight before a race at least, as it is I can't even get that.

try placing a shim under the screws that cause the twist.
