Do most of you guys run a locked diff/spool with your Cuda's. Can you run 28mm foams without the rums hitting anything? I have to run the TRC 26mm foams becasue any bigger they will hit the ball ends on the bottom of the shocks.

What springs do you guys use? Can I use my Rayspeed springs?
Will the new bulkheads with the built in mounts fit on the R2?

Sorry guys just trying to gather as much info as possible before I shell out so much cash. I have my Yoke sold to a guy so now I need to decide if I want a Cuda. I like many of the features on it.

The reason for me possibly switching is a personal thing. I like to kickass with something different. I like running stuff that no one has. No one in our area has one of these things. My SD is fine. It is fast and works well. I don't really have anything to complain about with it.

Ive had a TC3, yokomo, losi, corally assassin, xray and the cuda (with xenon chassis).

I can tell you now that the cuda is the fastest of all so far for me and by far the easiest to work on!! I wish I could get rid of my assassin because I would get me another cuda if I did!!

Try a 20T to start off Steve. I geared my 10x2 at 72/21 over the weekend.
