Steve made a few spools for the Cudas for the Reedy Race if I'm not mistaken. Try calling and see if any of them are still laying around..

Hmm, the spliff diff was in interesting idea. Think it was basicly a normal diff that used a load of rubber o-rings instead of the small ball bearings on the diff screw. Tightened quite far so that it doesn't slip too much but with the normal diff pulley balls in place so it does have some normal diff action. A comprimise for when one ways aren't allowed.

I have an R3 I just finished assembling, and I went to adjust ride height and noticed im about 3-4mm to high with no preload, I am using the Tamiya flourine shocks, and associated springs( already had a complete set of thse springs) is there anyway to reduce the ride height with these springs or will I have to buy a complete set of Alex racing springs. Any help is appreciated. Thank You

Dont know if they will fit, but you could try the Rayspeed shock collars.

My case is a bit different. It's the R3 dampers that giving me too much ride height. When I change to TRF dampers all is good.
I use TA TRF shocks, but with TA spring set (Tamiya Short springs). Comes with Soft/Red, Med/Yellow, Hard/Blue, ExtraHd/ White, Super Hd/Dk Blue and Ultra Hd/Gun Metal.

Default Reyspeed springs

Hey you guys who run the reyspeed springs on your R2's, what kind of track are you running them on? Would they be good for my track (for you So.Cal cuda owners) and or are they good for parking lot tracks? Also what are you guys running red front and white rear? OH 1 more thing what weight oil are you using with thoes springs? Im using 40wt all around with the stock springs and HPI #2 pistons and Im hooked up but if I can find something even better, well you know Im all over it!Thanks for the info in advance.
