Can anyone give me any verification on this? In the Tamiya shocks the foam compensator is covered by the bladder and all is under the top cap... so it's top cap/foam/bladder -JB

Turtlemaster, and Pro4Capece, if you guys are killing center drive cups, you might want to consider the Team Suzuki center drive cups. Running 9x2 Cobalt, man you must have geared it low, and since that motor spools up so fast, the drive train could not handle all the torque that was produced. How do your outdrives, look after a couple of runs?

I find the plastic cups are more prone to breaking when running a one way diff. Never broke one with a ball diff up front.

Ive been fortunate so far with my CGM, six weekends straight with a 9x1 and no breakages other than one ring gear and loosing the front universal pins. I changed to the IRS dog bones up front with the pin cushions and figured out the sweet spot for the shims on the solid spool. The dog bones still look like new, shaft cups has no play, im really impressed with this car so far. Initially i thought it was going to be a pretty fragile and high maintenance, boy was i wrong.

yep already been looking at the alum ones. gearing a 70/22 (7.487) its a big track. rear out drives are just barely starting to show a little wear after two or maybe its three weekends

its the rear one. i broke the one that came with the car and didn't even make one lap with a brand new one with a snug fit.

btw, this is the SDW i'm running.

Sweet. Yeah, if I remember looking at the photos correctly, Masami ran the Suzuki cups instead of the plastic ones at the Worlds.

Just get you and a buddy to halves on a package of the suzuki drive cups, you only need them for the rear of the car.

The foam compensators I was refering to were in the bottom of the shock body for the MR4TC series of cars. In the updated shocks for the SD they're built just like the tamiya shocks, with the bladder, foam thingy, and the cap.

So in that case leave the ones that I'm talking about in but make sure the shaft goes in smoothly with little or no rebound? -JB

There's always going to be some rebound when using bladder tops, that's just the nature of the design. Yes, leave the foam peices on top of the bladder there. If anything, some people are putting O rings on top of the bladder instead of the foam to get more rebound out of the shock.

I thought having more rebound takes away the 'action' of the springs? -JB
