Good run yesterday. I guess that thicker chassis is the ticket. We are all heading back out on Wednesday. Even Billy is coming out. Hopefully you guys can make it too.

Thanks in advance

In general, raising your suspension mounts equally will decrease chassis roll... making the car feel tighter and more responsive to weight transfer. The car will not rotate as well and be harder to turn on small radius turns, but will carry more speed on sweepers and medium sized turns. It can be faster and more consistent in chicanes and fast multiple 180's.

Yeah the BD thick chassis was pretty good. So was the CGM, either car was really good, infact I think the CGM had a lot more rip than the BD in 19T, just needed a little more horsepower. Working on that now , really need to get some 3800s. Would like to come out, maybe we can, Alex is having Thanksgiving at his moms on Wednesday. She has to work on Thursday.

Why are you selling it. It is a great car! Your car looks great. I am ordering next week my LCG conversion kit for my SD. Maybe with the old parts I am going to build a offroad buggy using suspension of the Yokomo buggy.

I've been searching through and can't seem to find a carpet set up sheet. Yok's website just has asphalt.
Does anyone have a carpet setup shet for an SSG?

I can lend you mine when you return. . . . It's a tuning option that you can resort to, depending on the layout of the track. Pretty much the same effect as the center one-way of the BD.
