180 a set
You'd have to be nuts to buy them at that price
So how many sets have you bought Dave?

EAM- if they're cheap I'm sure lots of us would be interested really cheap and you may even interest me

The Cuda's drive train is so free, why would you need them?

If you had ever felt a shaft drive with ceramics youd know why youd want them...They will double your spin time just by installing them...no BS.

If I can get enough orders I can sell them for 90-100 range. But need to see if the interest is there before I chunk the change over

ea.

How does the car feel to you right now? Are there any handling characteristics that you dislike that you would want to tune out? Sounds like a pretty good size track so about 1 second off the pace isn't all that bad. Might just need some fine tuning

Speedtech...it pushes real bad entering corners...im used to the back end kinda being controlably loose cuz i drive faster that way...im guessing once i get my off centerballs and the different rear hubs and PAL system it should be better im hoping...im loosing it in the corners not on the straightways

R/C Anonymous,

It pushes because it has too much rear toe-in making the car too stable in the rear. The A6113 rear hub will reduce it by 1 degree and the off-set center balls can reduce it by another 1 degree. That should help free up the rear end a bit. Another thing you can try after these adjustment is putting a shim (from the A6511 shim kit) underneath the front rear suspension ball mounts (just a 0.5mm can have a pretty dramatic affect) that should make the front dive even harder into the turns. Give those a try
