Yeah, it's not the transmission that's the problem, but the suspension arms. The transmission is still very strong. Just to give an example I have the aluminium diff joints bought a while ago to replace the original plastic ones that came with the kit, but the plastic ones just don't wear! As for the gears, they're as good as new after two full seasons of racing.

Im seeing the lower suspension arms for the Yokomo drfit package as SD-008. Thats the same part number for the SD-SSG. If you cant get them then Im screwed too cause Im running the same car for VTA.

There are two other options. SD-008H and SD 008HG. These are still available and are the replacement parts Yokomo has brought out soon after releasing the SD. They are not however identical to the SD-008. SD-SSG cars had identical arms all around whereas the H and HG parts are different front to rear. The reason i wanted the SD-008 is becasue it just means you only have to have one arm and that covers you all around. SD-008H and 008HG come in pack with one front and one rear arm, so that covers you too but as soon as you replace one of them you have to buy another pack to have another spare for the arm you just replaced.

Our track has a number of hairpins after long straights so that means I am more likely to break a front arm when entering aggresively in these hairpins (and this happenned to me quite a few times) and the inner front wheel clips the barrier (which is heavily loaded with lead to make it impossibile to move it in crashes). This means I need more front arm spares than rears, but I have to buy twice the number of packs to have the same number of spares.

I completely understand. I like the fact that they are the same identical arm for all four corners. I thought it was very innovative. When you order a set or pair you are still ok even if you keep breaking the right front arm. I still love this old car. But I tend to have a knack for buying TC's that you cant get parts for. (S400)

I still wish I had my SD with the RaySpeed chassis. I miss that thing. My 04 Stock Region 3 winning car.

Double dang!

I searched yesterday all day on google and ebay (which is sometimes better than google at finding things) and simply didn't find any shops with SD-008 at all whatsoever, otherwise I wouldn't have panicked.

If you think that's difficult, try racing a Kawada Sigma2 every week for a change.

Hey.... I didn't quote/say anything about buying cars that are hard to get parts for!

Damper stand, you mean the Tamiya one? I use it as my tool holder. My two favorite companies are Tamiya and Yokomo! I always have at least one car from each company! I think for that race back in 2004, I had to decide to either run the original 415 or my RaySpeed SD. The SD proved to be quicker on the layout. So I used it for that race. Now I have a choice between my Yok BD5, and one of my Tamiya's (sold the 416 ) but I still have my 415MRE, Evo IV, and TA05. I just got the BD5, and so far I'm liking it. Reminds me a lot of when I had my 416. The BD5 does not have as many adjustments as the 416, but it has the core adjustments that are needed for rubber tire racing. It's a keeper.
