Talking Great

Kind of easy to put together .....

You might want the Mid Span A-arms if your running on carpet and on a tight track

Hi Guys,

I'll be trying out a couple of new things on the Cuda this coming Tuesday. I have the mid span arms on the car...which I think will make the car handle even better on the tight twisty indoor asphalt track. But for larger tracks (for example when we get out doors to the reedy race at Tamiya) I might go back to the long arm setup. We'll see

I'll let you guys know how it works this time out later on in the week.

Thumbs up Speedway PAL motor mount/shaft holder

It's now out...and this one of the best Upgrades that you can buy for the Barracuda...it makes the drive train 100% bullet proof It holds the shaft near the Spur gear so you can also run 64P gears and have a tad bit quieter drive train hahha

I need a good outdoor starting point for medium traction ashfault.

I have Yok springs
black, yellow, green, blue and orange.

I will be running 26-28mm Ellegi foams.
This is for Mod Elec Touring.

Fastburn,

Start with the yellow all around, and if you're running mod, you might have to go a step stiffer to the Pink yokomo springs.

Good luck

Try the Yokomo MR-4 Steering posts that the servo saver mounts to the side without the spring in it...plus they are Blue to boot
