Herm.. am I reading that right 6 pounds for a spur, thats like $12 US
Too bad shipping from US to England is a fortune.

Good luck with, your race Oh yea I used RBF no swaybar set up.................NICE
I've been getting a pretty good response on that setup, its just one of those things, the more you run a car the more you figure out btw I have run anywhere from the softest 1.4x7.00 to the std springs 1.4x6.00 lately, just using chassis roll & tyre squeal as a guide for the optimal grip level.

Dave & I are trying some new stuff with the long-arm setups, I think he is getting pretty pumped about the long-arm stuff now. Just installed the new Hard suspension parts are on the o'l CUDA now, and so begins a new journey

By all means let Stevetech know what you want for CUDA parts, he is really trying to get everything over here that he can

Herm you need to visit us for a week or so, and fly back home with a big stash of spares

I've seen that Kai chassis, looks like it would be stiff as heck, but that thing would be a bitch to seal all the carbon fiber on...

Burning yourself with the soldering iron is a bitch too!

Dont have the burning myself problem, but I made these things clean so Dan doesn't have any problems. Unsoldered them, stripped the solder, picked the flux off with an X-acto, took a toothbrush to get all of the hard to get off tire dust, cut the shrinkwrap off... I hope I dont have to do that again for a long long time

Hey RM,

Kind of late but just so you know. Next time, get some 90% rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and let it soak for a bit and just brush it off with a tootbrush.

HEHE, you need a protrak can test each cell while it's still made up so you only have to remove a few cells I love my charger

ahwell time to leave for the track, got an old mid range servo in, looks a little antique like but should work, fingers crossed

I'm actually having all of them rematched to get some more accurate #'s. Fukuyama uses the TurboMatchers, and the matching parameters can't be altered on them, so you get 100% accurate #'s, rather than other companies that alter the variables to get 1.2+ #'s.
