Hey, you got a PM.

That sure looks sweeet!

I wonder if the drivetrain is lower than the other double decked shaft cars on the market?

Like the Pro4 and Evo4

Its going to be similar to the SDW in terms of profile. I've put a Pro4 next to an SDW, and its close with the SDW 1 to 2mm taller than the Pro4. That's placing the chassis side by side minus wheels, and no suspension in play.

Well with the LCG's transmission being 5mm lower than the SDW, I'd expect the LCG to be even lower than the pro 4, perhaps by as much as 3mm?

Of course what I meant to say was the upper deck is 5mm lower than the SDW! The transmission is 4.5mm lower than the normal SD.

It certainly does look nice. But I'm not a fan of open gearboxes. Just one stone/screw/bodyclip/washer (delete as applicable) could spoil your day. Hopefully, lexan gear covers are available?

Actually, I m a big fan of open gear boxes!

I just love the way it looks, but you re right about the prob it can cause and I think you will just have to make you own covers out of lexan unless yokomo has the good idea to make some available as a hop up or something..

Well here is something you could probably convert to the LCG SD.

Oh and I know a guy who races his SDW everyweek and has not one thing broke cause it got into the gear boxes....
I like the open boxes it allows for a lighter and more free drive train...
Hope to see one real soon.....

How hard is it to get the diffs out of the SDW?

Just looked at the previous post from Shookie about the specs of the LCG, looked at my SDW, and the first thought that came to mind was, how big of a spur can the LCG take?

I mean Yokomo lowered the drive train 4.5mm from the SD standard, and like horatio hypothesized 3mm from the SDW, that's a considerable reduction in the maximum size spur that could fit w/o protruding from the bottom of the chassis.

Are we talkin' mid to high 60's for the largest spur that could fit? Good grief, time to start buying smaller pinions to get my gear ratios in the right spots for motor again.

You have to undo the upper deck, and remove each bulkhead, and then take it apart.

having done this a few times i can tell you its not hard at all, it does require what the other guy said, but it only takes a few minutes, largest spur gear on lcg i don't know, on SDW its a 77 without filing, 78 with a little filing on the lower chassis. thats 48 pitch of course. i've ran mine almost everyweek end since they came out and have had the gears get noisy because of debry but haven't broke any gears yet.

Good point! Some of us are probably lucky enough to have a full range of pinions already, otherwise it's an extra cost to consider.
