Sheesh, you've driven so many variations of the Cuda they must give you a drive of the new one
Leave the strength testing to them though

I think you'll just have to take their word for it that it's a strong chassis and shock tower

Also just Ordered my R3 Today..... after test driving the R3 that ALEX was testing today..

The chassis balance is better than the stock R2..the chassis balace and turn in reminds me of the way my PAL A-spec/Xenon chassis is
