the t1 racer is out of stock, the ssg is out of stock and the CGM is a conversion kit. Of those three cars I would pick the CGM.l

I feel it would but I heard an issue is the weight, supposedly race ready the car weighs around 1560g, not sure if this is true. If it is you would need to get quite a bit of the weight off

I've personally beat every one of those cars with my CGM. Weight is and issue with the CGM; but not as much as everyone seems to think. If you have to ask which one of those cars is best my guess is you are just starting racing. Get the CGM put the heavy duty suspension arms and wide front bumper on then go practice, practice, and practice. The car does not tweak, it handles great and is tough. I've been racing one for the last two carpet seasons, i finally pre-ordered the new yokomo BD to replace the CGM. Not because the car was no good just because i'm ready to try something different. My CGM is now sold to a local racers, it was very difficult for me to let it go since I've been so succesfull with the car. Give it a try you will not be disappointed.

Well usually you want to get as close to 1500g without going under and still being evenly weighted, I Think the titanium screw kit and lightweight chassis are the biggest ways to lose weight, they both would lose about 40g I think but would end up costing around $80

Look on e-bay; last time I looked there were several CGM's for sale. As far as tires go i start with 60 mm foams and then run them until they are gone. the car is slightly faster on my home track with 59mm tires. Mainly because the carpet is low traction.
