That is what I'm talking about. I hope they aren't limited, I can't buy a whole lot for another month or two. You know how bills can get and I'm trying to get out of debt. I am not that far, maybe in the next year I'll be debt free.

I think that the Xenon kit will be better priced than the PAL one...also both kits will have a much more rigid chassis since the upper deck and rear motor mount now tie into each other..-

I know this question has been brought up before but why would you want to change an already awesome, fast, and indistructable car? Look what RBF did at the Reedy Race.

The decision on what to get just gets harder and harder
Don't know if I can afford to run two cuda's as I'd like to...
One like my current cuda, close to stock and not too stiff for low grip surfaces.
A second, stiffer, Xenon/Speedway equiped cuda for a spot of carpet and mod racing.

Don't know if I'd get much opertunity for carpet racing, the club that runs it does so on an almost random basis, the rest of the time running wooden floors.

May have to just see how a stiffened cuda can be setup for wooden floors....

I know the PAL kit is limited, and I think the Xenon kit is limited too...

We do it to try and make it a faster, more awesome, and more indestructible car...

I am going with the PAL Type A chassis because that car is going to be run in mod, I want the least amount of flex I can get out of it...

the stock cuda is absolutely great car on aspahlt but when racing on carpet or very high bite surface the car tends to flex a bit much. a modified motor magnifies this problem

these upgrades should help correct this situation. the reedy race was 19t motor and on a medium bite track, i was there and the cuda ran extremely well (wish i had mine then)

some would just call this progress . . . .

That's pretty nice to include the hubs, price isnt bad at all for that... Does it use the short camber link setup that PAL has avalible?

Hey Ron, I got my R2 back together yesterday, and it has an all new setup, hopefully it will work tomorrow... See you there.
