the steering post sticks out about 1-2mm above the arms. so the screw may bite into the aluminum and can be a hassle to get out afterwards.

someone asked how the upper deck on the LCG compare with the Pro 4? the LCG is lower than the Pro 4.
On the BD we have to use a couple shims between the steering posts and the top deck...Maybe that could solve the problem????

yeah, that could be it. i find that the manuals from Yokomo USA and Yokomo Japan tend to be slightly different. i guess Yokomo USA builds the kits and updates their manuals before releasing to the public.

Yup, that's why the BD was delayed a bit when it arrived in the states, so yok usa could go over the manual and make any corrections that were needed.

Okay, I've been playing Xray T1FK for too long and I know nothing about latest cars from yokomo until I visit yokomo's website today. So I know what you guys talking about LCG now.

My comments: The LCG conversion is almost the same as buying a new kit. Only few items like shocks, springs, screws, center drive shaft are re-usable for LCG. The rest of SD parts will be useless and they become waste of money ( incredibly I have lots of SD spare parts purchased from Japan last year.... damn! )

What the heck....... I think I'm gonna buy it
LCG is so cool !!!!

Good point, the only thing that comes to mind is, "Will this product sell?" There are the pros and cons, and of course the price to the end user.

my thoughts were that one advantage that the shaft would have if your running a track where a diff would be preferred over a front one way then the shaft would 'free the car up a bit entering the corners off power.

the quality isn't the greatest. here are a couple pictures

notice how low the steering arms are mounted. the blue post you see in the background is for the battery.

This is just a thougt...would not the drivetrain on the new LCG be less free than on the SSG? I would have to run both shields with the LCG since the whole tranny is exposed. So no longer could I run the half shield and super free bearings.

If you break in a good set of Ceramics.....Like Acers...Yea you have to break them in good. I have a tool that is sold from niftech as a diff break in tool and it is great...It attaches to your dremel and man it makes short work of diff break in...But about bearings...I also use it on bearings and it break in bearings as well. Once the bearings are broke it, they are ulta free spinning with very little drag.
The Boca Ceramics I have in my BD are very free spinning with all the shields in place. So really it shouldn't be a problem with free spinning just that you have to work a little harder to get it real nice and smooth.
Look how smooth the SDW is....
I like the pictures Racer....
talk about lower CG those steering arms are as close to the deck as possible...NICE...Might have to put a couple shims under the steering knuckle ball stud just to get the right ackerman.
I think the US version might have all the right instructions and quality will be up to par. I think they pride themselves on how AR they are about how there kits are received...Look at the BD release ....held up because of a little change in the manual...Gotta Love Quality Control...

END RANT....LOL
