Talk with Herminator about this...he seems to know more about the Euro seen than I do..
anyways the Triox Car will cost more than it would to import one from SpeedTech in the States..

Congrats on the findings with the car Randy...but I think that the Xenon chassis will fix most of your problems 90% sure of it..since the local trak owner runs modified and he has a similar problem as you and dave..


-Dave
Looks like I'll need to try one... Did they relocate the batteries on the PAL chassis as well?

If you can get more steering out of it, I will be a big fan of yours When are you leaving back for Japan?

He dropped by the track and watched the first heat, but had to go play on a flight simulator, so no racing for him last night..

I would say they did by looking at the photo of it
look at the battery slot and then look at the servo mount
and compare it to yuor web chassis

it's a shame Alex Racing aren't more interested in promoting the Cuda in Europe, especially the UK
