Default need help

I have a couple of question. What are the shock spring hardness that come with the kit? I need to get some different hardness ones and don't want to duplicate any. Also which yokomo bladders(diameter)will fit the cuda shocks. and should I change the rear shock bodies to the shorter ones? What is a good starting point for rear sway bars? I will be running foams on ozite carpet. Last one, which rear hub will get me less rear toe in. I already have the offset balls on there but still need less toe in. Thanks for all the other info listed on these pages it has really helped. I am the only one running a cuda let alone if anyone has heard of one and all the guys are already drooling.

Stock Springs are 1.4/6.0 and you may want 1.5/? stiffer ones
Yokomo Bladders and Caps from there SD shocks work, and you can get less toe by getting new rear hubs. As you may expect maybe a 70 or higher shock oil should be considered.

Call Steve at Speedtech R/C he knows about all of these items.

Also you may want to look into either PAL or Xenon alum hubs, and knuckles. Read previous posts but for high bite carpet these should be reviewed and possibly even the short span arms.
SwayBar again would think stiffer - but - you may find you don;t need them?

Im not sure if I will get to make it or not that weekend KO. I will be camping in Gatlinburg that weekend.

No Tc3 for me...I havent made my mind up what I'll run yet...I have a Corally Assasain right now I have been playing with. Would like to have a Cuda but they are to much Money for me after all the hopups you need for one to run on carpet and mod.

I may go with the gear eater!! LOL Although I do like the yoke as well!!

Eric, I ran my cuda box stock on carpet and it was very good...I think you'd be very happy with one...I get dogged about "where you gonna get parts?" and I said I had the same problems with my yoke and I never regreted a second for getting either car.
