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
Where abouts in the UK do you race herminator, im up in the grim north west, near Preston and we race on carpet, im thinking of saving up to get a Barracuda to race on tarmac at christmas time, when ive seen how little money i do have after buying presents etc.

but why are so many drivers using the midspawn

the Mid span arms tend to hep the car rotate a bit more than the Long span a-arms...butyou can get the long spans to do the same with a little work..

Default New Cuda owner question

Hi guys,

I just bought & assembled my very 1st Cuda and i have a couple of questions I'd like to ask. I hope you dont mind:

1. I noticed that the suspension travel at the rear is somewhat shorter as compared to the front cuz of the longer shock body. Is this the reason why some of you guys use the shorter shocks at the back? If that's the case would the longer shocks up front compromise the suspension travel there.

2. Is there a 3mm chassis available? I just need the upper & lower decks to be 3mm, I dont want to convert to the PAL or Xenon systems as of yet.

Mucho Thanks in Advance!!!

You'd have a big problem getting sensible ride height at the front whilst trying to get any travel in the shocks if you used long shock bodies up front too. It's bad enough at the back, using the inner mounting positions means you get little to no shock compression.

The best 3mm chassis are those from Xenon and Speedway PAL, if you "need" the chassis to be 3mm then this is the best option. There are other chassis' availble from companies such as FLAP but I don't think they are 3mm, and they don't have the milling in the chassis to get the bulkheads, etc. to the original height. You can always use the stock drivetrain on the Xenon/PAL chassis but you'd have to use the original top deck.

I'm in the proper North Scotland
I live in Glasgow and race at Ayr mostly, indoors on wooden floors in the winter and outdoors on tarmac for the few summer months we get.

Best place to buy a Cuda is Speedtech for sure you'll not find a better price and you can trust Steve. Plus it has bearings for the steering (something Steve asked for for the kits exported to America) and Steve adds a couple of very helpful suplimentary sheets to go along with the Japanese instructions saves a lot of hassle when it comes to things like shocks. Otherwise it's a case of trying to study the pictures which sometimes contradict each other

really?

I almost think it's a bit boring, since so many other kits have it....
then I take a look at my Cuda and see it's got more shiney blue bits than most kits could ever dream of having and it's soon to be even more shiney
