Nope...

Just the Xenon Alloy hubs like Steve sells at Speed Tech..not a bad price for all of the stuff that you get for the stage 3..

So, each stage has different packages or what? I will be racing about 3 or 4 more times outside then it's high bite carpet racing w/ a 19 turn. It is twisty but plenty of room to get racy, or put others a lap down What stage or pal would work best for the carpet?

The PAL type A will propably be the stiffest chassis out of everything that comes out. Check a couple pages back to see what the different Xenon packages come with.

On indoor tracks I have a hard time with the long arms tring to make the car rotate ao thats why I use the mid or Short sapn a-arms and the PAL hubs on 90% of my cudas now..all of the othere use the long A-arm and the Square hubs..

I have an PF Alpha and a PF crowd pleaser bodies to paint up. The Crowd Pleaser was only 11 frog skins so it can be a show body

Default Hard Carbon Parts

Just a reminder that the Alex Hard suspension components should be as stiff as the Xenon aluminum pieces. The Hard parts are quite a bit lighter too, but they will also break easier than the stock pieces.

I think the 'break easier' part is the important thing to remember with some of these guys hey Randman.... Dave....

it's not like weight is a huge problem with the Cuda, when using 3000's I have to add about 40grams to get legal, I race with 3300's though so only need about 10

the PAL hubs that I run are onlt 1 gram heavier than the stock Hubs..so it`s not that much of a weight issue...but then again the Xenon Hubs are quite heavy...also the Square front and rear hubs are "very light" 3~4 grams more than the Carbon ones.. ..Have Randy weight his You`ll see what I mean..
