No second Cuda KO, but the one I do have will be getting very sorted
When Dave has a visit from the post fairy that is
Then my Cuda should be light, stiff and very Blue
Sounds like you'll be pretty hooked up there Herm, waiting for the post service sucks!

I raced last night...but it was sad

I got my Butt handed to me last night

1st thing to break was a 16T bevel gear when I got hit from behind and run into the boards...
2nd thing to go south was in the main I was t-boned coming out of the sweeper and after that the car never wanted to center..!!!..still have to figure out what got jacked up

anyways ...just dumb bad luck... sooooooo....
it`s time to work on getting away from these clowns.. I have some HP that will be in the mail on monday coming my way

also... I`m starting to get read for the ALEX/Xenon cup heheheh..

-Dave

I've got a couple races coming up at the end of the month that I'll be racing in, going with the R2 chassis just because I know how to work on it well, so no testing on those weekends

And I thought we had it bad in Scotland for weather

Dave what on earth are you playing at? Have you painted a big target on your shell?
Surely if you're fast enough you can get yourself into the faster heats where driving should be cleaner....
I've had less crashes in a night of racing at my local club and from those pictures you've shown us yours has wider lanes and of course more grip for avoiding people Ok you're going at higher speeds but you're more likely to scrub off speed too. I tested that theory a couple weeks ago when I managed to roll my car twice in one race as it came around the fast sweeper and I clipped a corner dot, it certainly didn't loose much speed before slamming into the wall while on it's roof no breakages though, just a borrowed pack of cells forced their way into and akward position, bending the bars on them a little

all I`m going to say is that your going to love it 5mm forward batteries and the motor mount moved back 2.5mm..makes all it difference in the world..

I know you've said it gives more steering since the cells are further forward but does it sacrifice a bit of stability? Need to keep your rear end planted indoors

I've always had all of the rear traction that I could handle with the R2, so I dont really think that's going to be a problem...
