Howdy yall

CGM Vs SSG weight: My SSG wighs 1520 gms ready to run, that includes some (heavier than plasitc) alloy parts,an older MG servo, personal transponder, 3000HV's, a Mazda6 body, rubber tires, plus some PK plugs, a fan, and the likes...

2.5 ratio: this has been discussed before... some said it was the bomb, others including me said there was absolutely no mechanical justification to any improvement over the stock ratio, and that the same result could be achieved by changing the spur/pinion combo... spend the cash, try it, and let us know what you think.

Cracked knuckles around ball studs: you wouldn't have overtightened these studs, Mabuchi540, would you?

Still debating whether or not to give a shot to the CGM, and cannibilize it later on of all these graphite parts to throw them on my SSG...

When the flag drops, the BS stops.

The train stops at the train station. The bus stops at the bus station. In my office I have a workstation.
