Think I'll just buy some new pistons then
I'm sure I could devise a way of holding the pistons but steady hands not something I have

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!!

Im with Eric Ive had hpi,losi,yokomo,ova,tech racing,altas,
and the CUDA is by far easier to work on when you need to.
and its one of the fastest cars I have had and with parts in the
states (Speed Tech R/C) makes it a major plus to run and enjoy the hobby!

Some one else was taking photo's on Monday night so there's actually one of my car in action
Luckily it was once I'd got my cuda reasonably sorted and stopped the sideways action

I was going to get a R2, but i cant really afford one yet, after xmas, when i know how much money i dont have i might get an R3, is it only going to be avaliable with the glitterly chassis though? Reading the KO VFS-2000 thread that speedo looks like the one to go for as i enjoy racing stock and it may give me a little bit more speed.

just as cheap to buy the pistons instead of a drill bit plus you then still have the option of going back if you don't like the changes
May not want to do too many changes to my Cuda now though, working pretty well indoors

LOL, a shell doesn't slide that fast
It's got my graphite wheels on there, nice and light although a little too stiff for indoors.

LOL, we have a couple of those guys at our club I'm not one of them, but I've seen cars thrown around or kicked....
Some people funnily enough they don't seem to be the cleanest overtakers...

Come on KO time for you to show some pics of your car in action, or atleast your track or do you spend too much time on your roof?

Herminator, what parts have you found brake the easiest and you need to keep hold of trackside. Just thinking there isnt a UK distributor of the Alex cars so if i buy one what else to order as spares.
