I would say these two cars are like bro and sis. Yokomo and Associated are same company in Japan, so both share their stuff. They are similar, hard to choose. If you in USA, Associated parts are easier to get.

I would go for the yok. Looking at how long the tc3 has been out they have to be testing new stuff fir and and maybe a new car so I would go with the Yok( I already did) BUt both and really good cars. Try fliping a coin?

I went with the Yok as well, I think it took a lot of things from the TC3, and improved upon them. It has a much free-er (dont know how the heck to spell that one) drivetrain than any TC3 I have owned, which is the point of shaft drive. I have only driven my SD once, but am in love with it's performance already.

BTW, the Black version SD is coming out. I heard its stronger and lighter than SSG version.

The SSG has more flex than the carbon fiber, so it can be a tuning aid on tracks with less traction. I am propably going to keep the SSG chassis components, and go with CF shock towers. Once the CF is out, I'm sure a lot of people running on high traction tracks are going to switch over.

I think SSG have better impact reinforcement, because it is soft. The SSG also will let the car tweak and have better grip without making suspension softer. For shaft drive, you need very firm chassis not tweaking body or you will have gear stripping problem.
