Speed Way Pal C-Hubs are 5 deg too like the standard Alex Racing ones.

now what kind of crazy resolution do you have your moniter set at
I know you warned us but they're three times the width of the resolution on this laptop and it's not set at a low res

nothing like a good moan

boy oh boy, you must have a good camera, I't still downloading the rear picture (haven't even bothered with trying the front end one) but I am downloading something else at the same time from and ftp
I can see every single fibre on that foam tyre though even the mould lines on the ballcup and machine lines on the hub
I think you have an obsession with detail

That's why i'm running with a cuda

It had to be a cuda or a 415 those were my choices

Since i always run indoors on carpet i'm thinking maybe the 415 would have been a better choice now, but i will get the cuda going the way i know it can !!

Now has anyone got a R2 top deck they would like to donate to me ........... in the interests of science an all that........... i want one to try some more modding of my R3

I bet Alex Racing has fealt a bit of a blow to their income since you've slowed down your Cuda buying

I've just been experimenting with the digital camera, trying to take some decent shots of the body shell in the sun, its not easy to please myself got one or two that are ok but I don't think the Fuji F401 cuts it for fine detail and clarity, it's great for shoving in a pocket though.

Naw... I just have been working one stuff for the R3 since that will be my main car after this years all Japan Sportsman finals in August and November..

BTW the pic`s you keep taking keep getting beter and bet with the detail...but they still don`t show the depth of that blue on that body ...or the faschange red that is on the front with the white and orange

faschange red? didn't realise there was any on there until you said that I can kinda of see it now, adds a sort of pearlescent effect to the white. I thought the orange had just dusted into the white a bit since I know spray cans of flourescent colours leave a lot of dust around when I used them

The blue seems to change a lot depending on the light, sometimes it's very hard to make out the black shoddowing and the pearl bits fade totaly away, other times they stand out and the blue looks brighter.

I'm going to use the shell at Carlisle in a few weeks, don't want it ruined by then. Before I go drilling mounting holes in it I need to take off my cuda's bumper, the plastic bit the body posts mount to, since it's been slightly bent since I tried to remove some material to get it sitting better on the Xenon chassis, meaning my front body posts lean towards each other.

Hey everybody! I am thinking of getting a Barrcuda R3 as my next rc car. I want to set it up for drifting and racing on a carpet track. I already know what my electronic setup will be, but what are the essential hop ups? I want the Pal hubs, but I want them in red, cause thats my car color, but Speedtech only has them in blue. Is there another place where I can get red?
