Actually, that's true, I do like their starter box with the big 12 volt motors...

Ive had a read through most of this thread and now me wants a Cuda im from the UK and i saw that Herminator got one from the US, i was just wondering whether ordering from Japan or the US would be cheaper and what spares to get as well, i would prolly use Kimbrough spurs as ive seen the stock one has a problem stripping, i would run this as my tarmac car and keep my TC3 for carpet, which i race on more often.

Check out Speedtechrc.com to get yourself an R2. They ship anywhere, and Steve is a great person to deal with.

Looking at that car, maybe Alex Racing should make an update to the car with new bulkheads that mount the shock towers where the PAL upper link mounts are. Move the towers to the other side of the shock, and make the camber links right off the shock tower. Get a lot more camber link adjustments, and eliminate some of the weight off the bulkheads.

They are Yok`s but the New ALEX ones are better...look for them soon under the PAL name or Xenon...they will have a special coating on them like the Yok`s..say around the begining of December..

That car was in the B-main..
and the car is using a different hub set up all together ..so hence the lower roll centers front and rear..

Hey! that 5th place A main driver has stolen my future cuda!

Although he's fitted the Speedway PAL hubs and turnbuckle links looks like mid span A arms too, not what I want indoors

New shocks I suppose they will only make the shorter bodies, I think I'll stick with the kit items for now, with shorter ones for the rear of course (when the motha load lands )

Don't post too much guys, I'm not online as much atm. busy helping the old folks
