You can get the offset pivot balls. Speedtech sells them.

Where did you find that pic at Joseph? Looks like someone polished the anodizing off of them to maybe get a little more play and free up some bind they were having???

might be just normal wear from the suspension arms... even on the shock balls...the ano gets taken off as well.

Was thinking the same thing...they look a slightly more worn version of what im running on the front of the car at the moment.

Run the cuda for the first time on carpet with foams last night..... wasnt disapponited Will fill out a set up sheet for you guys to compare with your own, car had really good balance and turn in, and was consistent throughout the run. It was easy to drive and found I could go up 2 more pinions over rubber set up, on the same track layout with same motor/ battery combo as last time.

Cant wait to try a few more things out next week now

Just a small matter of running on polished wooden floor at the other local club this weekend..... said I would go along to help a friend in a moment of weakness Hermi.... any ideas on where to start with setup?????

Hi Guys,

That picture was interesting, because that is a lot of wear if it was worn down. I had my first cuda for almost a year with the same set of suspension pivot balls and the black coloring was all on there when I switched from long arm to mid arms using the same suspension pivot balls (and I race outdoors most of the time which equals to a lot of dust).

In case you guys are wondering...yes, we are still waiting on custom to clear our Alex shipment.
