Default MR4TC SSG GRAPHITE CONVERSION

I know this forum is supposed to be for the latest Yokomo MR4TC BD but I have the older MR4TC Special BD car and I was hoping you guys could answer this question.

What do you know about the MR4TC SSG GRAPHITE CONVERSION that I found on stormerhobbies.com? Can I use this for my MR4TC Special? It doesn't mention anything about a main deck replacement. What exactly does it have? Anyone have pics? Boy, I wish I could have a new MR4TC BD!!! It looks sweet!!!

I was taking a very close look at the steering rack and noticed the ball studs could be placed undernieth the rack, So I wanted to know by moving the ball studs on both the steering rack and steering knuckles to the bottom, would do what exactly. My thoughts are it would lower CG and make the steerign more agressive.
Am I right or wrong or whatever. Just thought I would ask.
Thanks,
Stephen <><

That set includes a main chassis, topdeck, shocktowers, battery brace, and front bumper brace, all made of SSG graphite.

What do the 0 offset and the 1mm offset front spindles do for the car?

O offset will give you more steering, 1 deg offset will mellow it out a bit.

yes the shocks on the SD and BD are the same..
the Rayspeed Springs work best with both cars. RS blue an white come with the BD.

i'm thinking that the steering rack is thinner then the steering block and the angle of the turnbuckle would probably increase/decrease and that effects bump steer. if you want to make the steering more aggressive, well on this car i'm not sure, usually you make the turnbuckle between the right and left servo savers longer and shorten the turnbuckles to the steering arms. this is probably more up matts alley then mine.

to get more turn-in steering you would want to move the ball stud on the steering rack forward, this is how you adjust ackermann on this car

I spent the day at the track today testing some different stuff. I'm learning a lot about this car, but the main thing I'm learning is how fast it can be

What is the difference between mounting the upper turnbuckle on the steering arm like in the the description or when I mount them on the C-Hub like on the SD?
