The loudest shaft drive car's(TC's) from my point of view
Barracuda
EVO4
TC3
EVO3
SD
Pro4

in that order

I think that this holiday schedule has thrown off the postal service..because I had a package sent from the states to my Address via EMS and they sent the package 12 days ago oh well...

Nice pic DAVE,

Don't suspose you have some more detailed ones of the new "Alex" hubs ??

Just wanted to see how they compare to the Pal ones looking at the car

It's alittle hard from the over view pic's

Looks nice though

The sway bar mount is in the same area..nothing has been changed... and as for the hubs... the rear ones are a direct copy of the PAL hub.. and the front ALEX hub is 1mm taller where the kingpin is ..so you"ll have a slightly different rollcenter than the PAL hub

It always seems to take longer when you really want the stuff!!!!!!!! I think the PostOffice knows that to.

I guess I should look at it as it is worth the wait!!!!! I think the saying goes " Good things come to those who wait"

But waiting for new toys suck!!!!!!!

Now on the other hand my car will only get better once I do get the parts!!!!! So in the long run good things do come to those who wait.

Will be running some carpet in a few more weeks so that will be interesting to see how the Cuda works. I will use some of what I ran on my TC3 and see if I can't apply some of what I learned to my Cuda.
