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
I dont know why you refer to me about breaking things, I've only blown out bearings on the car, and those werent even the stock ones. Have yet to break anything.

Default Carpet/foams

Anybody running this car on the rug right now with dual diffs and foam tires? It is my understanding that different hubs need to be used to run the wider Jaco 28mm wheels. I am just wondering how this car is doing in stock 27 and 19t.

Thanks!!!!!

Anybody looking to try out a new battery matcher!!!! Highly recommend Fukuyama Racing. Unbelieveable. I think these guys have done their homework and have a good thing going. Link is below.

Don't think many have raced on carpet yet but I'm sure it won't be long. I've read that dufferent hubs are needed for 28mm wheels, sounds probable when looking at normal wheels on the car. Others will tell you exactly what you need.
As for how it goes with a stock or 19turn motor, well fast would fit the description nicely
I've been running a 19turn in my car all summer and it's been ballistic for a 19, several scottish event A finals, and on my home outdoor track it's been plenty fast enough against the mods. Won a couple of A finals and been in the top 5 almost every week, against anything upto 12turns, ok it's not a huge track but then at larger tracks it's never that far from a fast 12turn, about half a second a lap on a medium sized track.

RBF also showed how fast it is against lots of top drivers by getting a great 2nd place at the Reedy Race in 19spec class, with a nearly stock cuda, alloy shaft holders being the only major change from kit.
