If you want the warrenty and red in the US, buy an LRP and then buy a Nosram case

JohnA I think your best bet is to find another car with the right sized kingpin, I know RC Lab have nice titanium kingpins that use the M3 thread but have too small a smooth section for the Cuda's standard hubs, may fit the Excel hubs. The kingpins are made by Titanium Racing, I'm sure they make them for a few other cars too. Best measure the size required and ask them if they have any that are the same.

I know It sounds unlikely but I wondered if anyone had any better ideas, maybe getting the hubs drilled to fit the flange pipes is the way to go.
I think drilling the hubs would be the way to go if it's a self tapping screw... shouldn't be very hard at all either.

That could work pretty well... I doubt I'll be going back to LRP anytime soon though, blown too many Quantums, plus Bob Novak is a great guy, he'll be out at the track during practice just turnmarshalling for people...

Yeah Bob is really cool. He gave me an SS to test a long time ago and that night I proceeded to take him out, not once...but something like three times hehe. Not that I meant to or anything just good fun. Now if I can get a hold of an orange case for my blue esc....

Your Quantum is small... it'll fit inside a GT7 case

both ways are almost similar... I'd go with the stage 2..you'll get everything in one package.

He was quite upset at the track...you need to ask him about why he is selling it.

If you don't have a Cuda get the R3, if you have an R2 get the Stage 2 conversion.
It's difficult to get R2's now

If only I had plenty cash spare, EA's cuda looks so nice and would be a perfect "backup" to mine
Still kinda shocked that something so bad could have happened to make him sell it, he seemed to be going so well with it
