You bought a Pro 3 you strange man, must of been cheap...

Go wash your mouth and wallet out with soap, make sure you empty the contents of your wallet into and envelope first though and mail it to me for safe keeping

The cheap red cuda's were posted a couple weeks ago, suprised they still have any for sale, there's also a NIB red cuda for sale in the for sale section of these forums...

Gazza_D for EMS shipping they do make Saturday delivery's and all the way up to 5.30pm, so you may get it tomorrow luckily whenever something gets to the Glasgow sorting office it's usually around 6am and is delivered that day to me, normaly after mid day, once they've done business deliveries I guess.

Just finished sanding and glueing the top deck, no more of that mucky job Already got the bulkheads and drive system installed on the main chassis, the drive shaft seems to rattle a bit though, maybe it won't under load, could be vibrations from not so smooth small bevel gears. Don't have my smooth needle nose pliers though someone must have "borrowed" them at the club atleast I have an idea of who has them and he's not trying to knick them.

Dave- where would you use all the tiny countersuck screws? I'm guessing bulkheads, transponder mount, steering posts, motor mount. Anywhere else?
Still only found four long shock tower screws

I moved back hom from Australia about 6 weeks ago and got my 'Cuda posted back to me and it was lost in the post. Got the Pro-3 second hand cheap so I would have something to race with. Cash is a bit tight at the moment so another 'Cuda was out of the question.

Anyway, struck the deal with the HPI and got home, two hours later the postman arrives with my long lost 'Cuda.

It was cheap!! As for mailing you the contents of my wallet, send me your address and I'll post some old reciepts and bits of fluff

Been out of work since I got back so spending has been cut-back. Interview monday though so if all goes well I can start playing catch-up

Any one got any ideas for disolving super glue? No women in this household so no nail varnish remover or anything like that.
It's in the spindle of a servo, a metal one, so I can't get a screw into it don't ask why its in there
