ooh, we've already told him about the HPI #2 pistons...

I run 1.4 x 5.5 in the rear, and 5.25 in the front, like the car to have very little roll.

So should we expect your sig to shrink a little Dave?
you going to have a couple beers to mourn the loss of a couple Cuda's?

I like the 1.4 Alex Racing springs I got the other day, nice spread of stifnesses and of course they fit perfectly on the kit shocks

I doubt Dave's signature will ever shrink, with all of the new stuff that comes out for the R2, he's like a kid in a candy shop over there in J-Land

Why are the batteries on a different side on the pics above? Is that not a stock chassis?

I'm having second thoughts because this is such a nice kit to let go..... j/k

Did you know it comes with a full set of $200 Tamiya Ti screws? I didn't know that.
