thanks brothers in racing!!!
I've been running mine on smooth asphalt.
Asphalt temp average about 100 to 110 degrees.

50 wt oil to front shocks
40 wt oil to rear shocks
kit springs front and rear.
Ride height 4.5mm front, 5mm rear.
Installed TC3 sway bars to the rear with longer ball caps.
Yoke foams-hard front, firm rear
No complaints about the performance.

The only hop-up that I want for now is the front one-way.
Still waiting for Steve at Speedtech to reply to my email about this unit.

From what I was told is it is a silver graphite version. Along with aluminum threaded shocks, universals, etc. That's from a gentleman who frequently flies to Toyko on business trips. I've been trying to find it on some Japanese online shops, but to no avail.

Is there any word from other companies releasing small 1/12 scale tourers like this Yokomo? When other companies start releasing small 1/12 scale cars like this, this class will get big very fast . Or it could not and it wouldn't get any bigger...............

SSG looks cool on anything, but it also has more flex than the regular cf. To those who have the car, does it twist much from side to side?

Highwayman,
No threaded shocks. They're plastic.

Randman,
The CF are 3MM thick. I never try twisting the chasis.

Wow, I didn't realize it was 3mm thick, there must be no twist. The SSG might actually be a good upgrade if they kept the same thickness.

Still no reply, but there is about a 16 hour time difference, they usually get back to me at about 7-8PM. I'll be sure to let you guys know when I hear from them!
