Hopefully I'll be alright for shells soon too..... and nice paint jobs will be easir for me to do.... I wonder when though
OK.... I can do that ...also the new shell will be your way after I get back trust me you"ll love it

hehe, well the paint will be well cured onto the shell
the guys I race with are used to my black shells with flouro red and metalic blue, may confuse some of them and myself
It's handy in most races though as not many use black so much, there are too many orange/yellow with bits of white colour schemes at SMTCA races.

Trust me you will be able to spot your ride a mile away( not really but it is some eye candy...seriously ) I hope you like ghost flames and regular tribal flames with a little Japanese/Dave twist to it

Good

Also I have been talking with someone to get a bunch of the alloy knuckles done up for the Cuda now that Square does'nt make anymore..... ... But these knuckles will have more ackerman points than the Square or Jet ones.... 2~3 positions

Sounds interesting, not that I muck around with ackerman much, well ever
Would be nice to have complete alloy bits for my car, but then again it's one less weak point, meaning the alloy is more likely to bend. I think I'd want some anyway, less of the tight fit bearings into the plastic knuckles.
Any chance of some graphite upper bumper braces being made? Don't like the look of the R3 one and none of the guys that I know, who work with graphite, come racing anymore
Would need to make the holes big enough for alloy body posts

All of the above is going to be made front Bumber support in carbon and a wonderfull new 3mm "NON-GLITTER" chassis for the R3..... and then you will also see my new "GREEN MACHINE"

any estimate on the non glitter chassis? i need to buy a new chassis for my R3 (mine is all beat up from all the parking lot racing).. and id rather upgrade to a 3mm instead of the usual 2mm glitter edition

Will this 3mm chassis have 3d milling?
Would be nice to see the servo area milled out a bit to lower it and also instead of the annoying big battery sized slots where the esc and reciever usualy sit, it would be good to maybe have small holes as well as some milling to lower it.
Maybe some hexs milled out around the large pivot ball lacations so they can't rotate loose. Although they couldn't be deep as it could reduce droop too much. It could help make sure each side is the same when using the offset balls, but it may also limit precise changes if you want to use tiny amounts of rotation for tiny toe in changes.
Maybe you could bevel the out edge of the chassis where the suspension arms are to make sure the droop isn't limited.
maybe a personal tranponder sized bit of milling between the steering posts on the bottom chassis, if one will fit under the rack.
I'm full of ideas

Will there be R2 Pal style "wings"?
Will they be able to work out an easy access spur through a splir top deck with the R3 motor mount the way it is?
