That is awesome. I'm really thinking of ordering a new R3 Blue Cuda witht he sparkle chassis. I have the Red R2 Xenon but I like blue a whole lot better so I might just order me a nice shinny new car. Then I will have two cars and a ton of parts.

Jason at BMI will kick out a killer chassis for the Cuda. To go along with some of the best looking cars around. Your stuff is awesome and the hard work and time you put in really shows.

I hope so... I gave him a pretty good gouge on what to change on the R3 chassis and what to do...but he pretty much has free control to do what ever he wants and to adopt the R2 style steering so that you can use the R2 or R3 stuff would be nice too..for both users

Dave- as usual everything looks stunningly good
If you ever plan on moving back to the states may I surgest "Orange county"

How did the racing go ? Did you drive the Cuda or your Tamiya ?

Man Dave if Jason gets a chassis setup that will work with the R2 and R3 that would be great. I know I'm ready to place an order for one.

Your not the only one.. I have about 10 people that want a better chassis for the R3 here in Japan..and I`m sure that theer are quite a few othere useres that would love to see a 3mm chassis and a stiff upper deck
