Very nice work you certainly must of taken plenty of time over it and your shadows are nice and subtle in the blue
I'll have to get a bit better on carpet before I risk running the nice Alfa

Now I need to get some paints and airbrush bottles Lots of masking to be done too with that shell...
Wondered what it was to start with, my closest guess was a Losi Stratus.

Here's a pic I took of it, it's hard to pick up all the detail.

Well a shell usualy lasts me about 3 months, so I have the Alfa then the Alex Stratus to last for the next 6 months....
Do you think you can get some done in that short time?

hehe, sorry, couldn't resist the little tease

Default handling

my cuda is always a little slower in the corners than a tamiya 415, especially on thight tracks.
now i wanna know if the mid spawn arms increase corner speed and handling?
i dont wanna go with the pal hubs, as they are to expencive for 2 cars..
or are the pal hubs the only way?
thx

What is the set up that you are running now?? the mid span arms will help a bit on the tight tracks... how small of a track are we talking about here..(straightaway lenght will be fine)

The Tamiya 415 certainly does look fast, there were a suprisingly large number of them at Teeside on Saturday. I think the guy who was way faster than everyone else was using one, it certainly had corner speed I may have to try the mid span arms myself.

Is it a secret setup?
I need to get mid span arms first, so no hurry for a setup
I don't want to make any drastic changes until after the Carlisle SMTCA round in about four weeks I know if I get my motors prepped right and my car as I know it should be, then I have a good chance there

I may PM you soon actualy to ask about your painting technique, there are so few bleeds on the Alfa, it's very professional I hope you've been to the custom paint job thread too I've got some other photo's but I want to do the shell justice so I'll take some more when the sun decides to show itself

i tried rayspeed springs today..
they work very well, the car was well balanced with reds in front and white in rear..
but they are way stiffer than the stock cuda springs...
