I might be getting the LCG, can someone list all the parts you need to make it to a full chassis?

That would be great since I m trying to see how much it will cost with all the parts

I m sure the LCG will be the best Shaft out there

Cheers!

Actually, I m not sure if I know all the parts needed but I think you need at least these:
Drivetrain,diff, one way, front universals, shocks, turnbuckles and thats about it, no?

cheers!

Aluminum bulkheads
- removable upper piece for easy diff access
New aluminum motor mount
Upper deck positioned lower
- 7mm lower than standard SD

Front and rear upper camber links mounted on bulkhead
prototype shown : production version will not have camber link holes on shock towers
New battery tray system
- compatible with GP3700 and IB3800 cells
- no filing of the battery slots required

New aluminum steering assembly

- positioned low for lower cg
Aluminum servo mounts
Heavy duty suspension arms
Rear bumper
Anti-roll bars (front:Rayspeed type, rear:upper type)
New rear dog bones


SD kit (sold separately) required to complete assembly.
I believe you need quite a bit from the SD kit to make it complete.
I.E. The Arms, hubs, axcels, bearings, wheel hexs, sway bar sets, ball cups and turnbuckles, body mounts, drive shaft, diffs and on and on and on....
This is more like a Rayspeed upgrade....Chassis, Top plate, bulkheads, shock towers, motor mount, and battery strap with aluminum mounts.
So you really do need the SD Kit....Oh man I have to buy the original SD steering assembly.....DARN RAYSPEED ONE LOL.....
Oh well whats a couple more bucks when you are already shelling out a couple hundred.......Cash registers around the world GO CA-CHING CA-CHING....LOL
Sorry guys really early here....
Take Care & GOD Bless

Don't you think its still cheaper to get the parts separetly rather than buying a whole SD kit?

I thought the arms were included in the kit?

Shookie, you're getting the kit right? I'm sure you'll be suprised with its performance altough you have the BD but when I look to the new specs of the LGC, its going to be a killer!

Keep us posted!

any setup for 19T on a bumpy medium asphalt track?

I came across some of kilruf's posts while doing a search but his setups were posted as inline images and their not available anymore. I got some of Matt's setups for stock motor though, would this work for 19T?

Thanks for any help

I pretty much run the same setups when I run stock/19T/or mod. In stock I usually but a bit of forward trim in the throttle so the motor doesn't have as much drag brake when I let off the throttle. So to answer your question, my setups for a given track will usually work regardless of motor.

Looking at getting back into sedans and will be running on carpet. I ran a SD and CGM but the new fleet of yoks look even better! I wonder of the two (BD or the LCG) would be better foam tire car?

Thanks

Jeff

The LCG isn't a whole kit, it's a conversion for any existing SD car. I don't have a LCG car yet so I can't say how stiff or flexible the chassis is but the BD does have some flex to it. EA motorsports is going to be offering a carpet chassis kit soon which should make the BD a very capable carpet car.

Yes, I did hear some racers over here saying that the BD was fairly Flexy, but flex isnt obviously a bad thing and even helps on mid grip asphalt

I was told the SDW was designed to be flexy for the Kissimmee track in Florida and that the stiffness of the BD was not symetric because of its design...not sure if the guy knew much of he was talking about

I think all you have to do is add up the cost of additional parts to know for sure. You might just want to find somebody selling a used SD roller. Then you would have all the parts you need.

The LCG requires 2 general components from the SD, the drive live, and the suspension.

Drive line, being all the bearings, universals, drive shaft, input shafts, and spur gear.

Suspension, being shocks, c-hubs, carriers, arms, arm mounts, and hingepins.

And I'll agree with pops, if you can get your hands on used SD, you're set for the LCG.

I've got a great setup for 19turn on medium grip bumpy asphalt. Only problem is, I don't have Adobe Standard or Professional. I have a compute at my house that might be able to modify the setup sheets. If it does, I'll either PM you or post it on this thread.
