Hmm, broken parts.....
well there's..... erm.... well....
nothing really broken so far

I have had a few bevel gears chewed up though, from tiny stones getting stuck in the teeth of one gear and then imprinting on the other gear So a few of them each is a good idea if you're running outdoors.
I ordered some c-hubs and steering knuckles, a pair of A-arms just in case
Diff parts are always a good idea, you need an extra diff anyway if you don't want a one way in all the time.

There isn't a UK ditributer for Alex Racing but it doesn't mean there won't be parts available for the Cuda soon....

That tarmac looks nice and smooth you could do with cutting two grooves for the timing loop though, we use a wooden thing for our loop outdoors, it seems people are magneticly attracted to it at times Ours has a join in the middle where it hinges, one unlucky car got its ariel in the join while driving under it at high speed and it left the ariel attached to the loop instead of the reciever talk about mm perfect.

So do you use different specced Cuda's at each track? Or are any differences just setup?

no wonder you don't go there often, four hours is an awful long drive, even for an outdoor track that nice, the indoor one looks a little small though.
Lots of silky smooth tarmac on US tracks, must be yet another thing thats cheaper there

I have 2 cudas now and I use to have one for asphalt and the other for carpet but not anymore . I have them both set -up for carpet racing now and if i get to a sunny place i will set one up for some outside racing.

The spring rates in gf/mm would be good too....

So were any brands more varied within a supposed spring rate than others Steve?
