Mike R,

The XRAY shocks since the EVO 2 are not the same as the Serpent/Corally shock. They are made by Hudy and are a far cry from the old shocks. They have keyed pistons so the problem eith the clicker spinning is no more. The shock bodies and piston tolerances are perfect unlike the old Serpent shocks. The front and rear shock lengths are now the same. The XRAY sprin gs are much higher quality than the Serpent springs. Very consistent from spring to spring unlike Serpent. They are comparable to Tamiya, Yokomo or any other high quality shock and still have the advantage of quick on the fly adjustments.

That's good to know. I always was impressed by Hudy quality and never understood why that didn't extend down to the shocks. Glad they have that covered now too.

We know you are working hard. You always do. Thanks for getting my newest order out for me. I will order once again when all you new parts come in for the Cuda. I'm going to stock up.

The front and rear hubs are the speedwaypal just like the new alex racing ones so only one setting is allowed and the other side of the camber link is connected with the speedwaypal camber extention.
