I'm back from racing tonight aand tried the popular rayspeed reds and whites for the first time. They worked very well. Helped by a nicely swept track which meant everyone had plenty grip. The top guys all managed atleast one good run and it was pretty close. I had a good run with practicly no real mistakes and at the time it put me second on the grid. Then in the last run I had to change tyres, as I was on borrowed narrows I put my bald narrows on and didn't like the change, the rear end was too twichty. Two others improved though and put me down to 4th, but there wasn't much in it. Went to wides for the final, which were smoother, although not quite as stable as the borrowed set.
Had a couple door banging's with 2nd to 5th placed cars at the start of the race then settled into 3rd for the rest of the race. With minor changes the car will be good on wides and I've got new narrows coming soon
The rayspeed reds and whites really work well for overall balance of the car

Used my Fuku's in the final, no drop off during a race is great, discharged them at 20amps after the race, they still had around 1950mAh in them I could easily run two races with them.
Next week I'll be a touch faster if I actually bother to clean my motor before I go racing

Told you Reds and Whites worked good!!!!

To answer an earlier question, i used a tc3 collar in an emergency to get me by, was not quite right but it got me by ok.
Enough to get 6th at BTCC at Ashby. Not bad considering

I managed to get the super glued screw out of the collar thing needed a bit of reflattening of the rim though My alloy c-hub is a bit scratched now though
Will have to order some spares as I know I'm going to loose one some day

I have used the HPI Black Flange Pipe 3x4.5x5.5" which seems to be the size as the ones used by the R2. The part number is A838. Any one with a Pro3 or Pro2 should have these. Hope that helps.

I wonder what you want that for

try doing a post based search with JDM as the poster and a few words which he's likely to have used. Like shimming, input gears, etc.

Wanted a picture to go with the spiel ive written, based on Dave's, I think it was on the other cuda thread though, have tried to find it but it doesnt appear to be out there anymore

At least interest in the Cuda appears to be on the up in the UK now we hva our own forum.

Pity we didnt get the mod job though

whats this we business
The admin favours the distributer for mod jobs, but Dan at Planet RC also asked Rob to put me on as he may not be around for long periods.

Was the speil I posted about shimming not good enough?
I'm still waiting to get some shims myself, took a while for the shop to get them I've got a really noisey bevel gear in the front at the moment, had one in before and the car was really nice and quiet, one gear change and it's back to the loudest thing on the track definetly needs a few shims in it.

You can't get instructions for the R3 in english yet.
I'll hopefully have some for the R2 soon though, will need to get them scanned into the pc though.
