Are those new camping hubs for the wheels 6mm for foam tires? RB, I raced my cuda R2 on carpet with foams...I love it. Needs to be fine tuned.

yes, the yokomo bladder type shock caps work really well. I already have them installed on mine.

Also, does anyone know if Pro3 castor blocks fit the Cuda?

Hpi says I can only get them through them and last time I checked, they were sold out. That is why I asked if the alex racing ones were the 6mm.

Dave,

It felt lazy...wandered around a bit...kinda like a woman I dated briefly.

I will most likely try it with a higher roll-cernter & stiffer springs next, we shall see if that makes it a bit more planted.

I know for a fact that you'll like the Higher rear roll center....but you might want to up the rear sway bar to a 1.2mm when you do raise it ..
