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

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
