You're sooo right, I've heard them refer to their racetracks as "wood floors" as well

my blue rear hubs are sort of, well.... hub shaped, certainly not square

X-acto is a brand, scalpel is a type of sharp bladed instrument I guess you americans don't even know what a vacume cleaner is

vacume cleaner is that the device that our "wives" use to clean carpet.. I'm still trying to figure out how to turn it on....

Does anybody know if there are any alloy shock tops that will fit the 'Cuda in RED I know the Yok ones fit and I have just destroyed a set trying to get the anodizing off! Left them in oven cleaner too long and burnt the threads off!!

I don't think there are, you'll probably have to get some profesionaly stripped and reanodized....

The HPI ones might fit. I have some but dont have the inner plastic mounting parts to try.
