Herminator ,

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the MIP cvd's from ? Any part numbers ? I always preferred the MIP ones since the dirt stays out of the cvd longer compared to the stock Cuda ones.

As you'll see in the pic, they're the MIP style cvd, the finish on them is kind of an oily blue, looks smart would be nice to have a whole car done like this
The pin hole seems to have either a hard coating in it or a thin insirt so hopefully they should stand up well to wear
and most importantly, they're slop free, unlike my old cvd's

They're made by Titanium Racing, supposed to be for the Yokomo SD. You should be able to get them through Schumacher USA. 6-4 Ti CVD's MR4 SD Part # 2504F, F is for front, they do Yokomo rear ones but I don't think they'd fit. If these hold up well I'll probably ask TiR if they'd do some for the Cuda rear, they'll be a bit more likely to agree since the Cuda should be coming into the UK in larger numbers now.
The front bones seem to be a touch longer than the stock Cuda ones (something I think TiR do a lot with their cvd bones) as I had to take out the rubber o-ring in the end of the one way outdrive. It wasn't pressing badly but just enough, I think I'll cut the o-ring in half and put it back in.

ARGH!!!!

I'm getting very mad with a stupid pin that won't go in the front axle, the one that sits in the hex hub. It's about 2mm from where it needs to be and now won't budge in either direction. The other side was a snug fit but you could get it in easily with your fingers, this side is being a little #@[email protected]%

Hi Herminator,

The pins should go in and out of the axles easily. At least mine do

Something must be wrong

Take it easy

TiR titanium axles and a slightly fatter pin than normal mean mucho pain in the ass

TiR like to have very tight tolerences can make it a bit tricky when the parts meet up with things that have slightly less accurate tolerences

I employed the service of a vice held it in the right position then slowly used the tightening pressure from the vice to get it in the right place, although it's now about 0.5mm too far in so I need to go put it back the other way a touch so the hex will sit totaly perpendicular

Have any of you guys tested the TC3 against the Barracuda? I was wondering what the difference between both of them where. What do u guys think? Which one is better? I like the looks of the Barracuda than the TC3. Which one performs better? Is anyone selling a Barracuda for cheap. I'm just wondering I want to see how cheap they are

SD knuckles or the MR4 TC series.. both work .. but you might need to do a little trimming

Yay i won tonight

That's right in 19T i beat everyone

Finially getting there although i had a hard time in the qualifiers with my steering sticking i really need to sort that out.

started 3rd for the finial, was in the lead by lap 2 and by lap 4 had about a half a lap lead spent the rest of the race trying to stop my mate catching back up .......... just made it had about 4ft lead at the line

My car was imo the best by far, handling great and had most speed just me holding it up really .... it really was good...... those Orion 19t V things are good just gear really hard.

anyway gotta get hold of steve now get some shit covers for the steering and maybe some ball races etc. i have got to stop it binding all the time..........
