Sheesh, for that to work the heat has to conduct down the motor can along the motor mount and then past the graphite top deck through four screws into the heatsink. May reduce temps by all of half a degree If the Cuda was overweight that would just be more work for the motor, but then you can just remove balast on most Cuda's

Are the R2s & R3s really competitive against the TC3s ?

I used to run TC3, and compare to the Cuda I have, at least I notice one thing: Strength. After that the list can go on and on. Alignment and Handling is the most possible next to the list. Of course in my hand it's hard to say it is competitive enuf compare to a TC3 in the hands of a pro.
If driver are of the same level, I'll put my money on Cuda.
