Man, that is an old old picture...our track looks much nicer than that and after the Nov. 1st race, we will have new carpet, larger racing area, new pic tables, and improved driver's stand...they sure do take care of us.

What springs are you guys using on the Cuda? Would my Rayspeed springs work or would I need to buy new springs from Alex racing? Are you guys just making your own spools with a sandpaper disk?

Would 28mm foams like Jaco fit the Cuda without rubbing on the bottom shock mounts? I need to run 26mm TRC's because the Jaco 's rub on my shock bottoms. If I can run 28mm foams without having this problem I think I will be ordering my new Cuda or after I get the money for my Yoke I will buy the one purple Xenon R2 Dave has for sale if still available.

Got some Rayspeed springs for my Cuda but havent tried them yet.
The purple xenon R2 that Dave has for sale is awesome, i would get in there quick it wont stay unsold for too long.

Thanks for that Dave, never heard of that stuff will ask around.

28mm foams are a tight fit... you might have to use a 6mm hex hub for the front and rear... but 26mm is on the safe side

I'll take a picture of the car with some 26mm ones on it and some 30mm ones so you can get a idea

Oops only got blue and green at the moment, nearly ordered the rest yesterday

They are a bit longer than the standard springs, can i still use the short shock body for the rear with them on and still achieve 4.5 or 5 mm ride height?????
