i'm very close to purchasing a cuda. so i would like to clear up some issues before making a final decision. sorry for bringing up so many questions.

what are the most common upgrades needed to race. example, aluminum driveshaft support, long-arms, short-arms...etc...

are there little tid bits we should know about the car like to perform that much better?

Thanks!

Looking for option parts as well for my WEB.
What is stock spring hardness in the kit?
What spring sets should I be getting for stock and possibly mod?

I just received the hard arms and hubs.

You bought the web edition.. you dont need any option parts!

I have been running the stock springs 1.4x6 since day 1, but I just put in an order today, got 1.4x5.5, 5.75, 6.25, and 6.5 as well as .8mm and 1mm swaybars, and some suspension shims. I have been doing great with the stock stuff, but now that I can tune even more with springs, the car is sure to come to life

Steve has the R2's on preorder, so you should be able to get any of those colors.

Red is kind of hard to get here in Japan...
But I like the Purple the best ...then Pink!!
