Hi DAve
Question: the drop camber link hop up....I wonder if anyone tried the drop camber link and lower front c-hub made any difference in the handling?

Thats what I use on all of my Cudas...... the car feels much more responsive with the short links and the midsapn arms too

I knew you'd had a lot of Cuda's in your time but not that many

I'm not sure I'll be a fan of the all black, something shiney would of been my choice.

Those orange bits look very nice Dave, can't wait to see a kitted out BMI orange R3

The BMI one is off in the Mail to Jason at BMI... then he will have his hand at working some Carbon Magic for us R2/3 users

Would the big "P" be a good "friend" of Xenon's?

Just make sure you don't use the mobile phone camera this weekend

I will take some pics. Car is coming along nicely. Had a few hang ups since I can't read Japanese!!! Steering rack took a little messing around with but everything else is cool.

I guess the kit don't come with a servo saver....?
