Between my Xray and Cuda, I like the Cuda better. I could never get in the groove with my Xray. It was probably the setup.

vi3tishduy, you will have to be patient for Speedtech to get the pink parts in. I have lucked out that when I ordered he had them in stock. The things I suggest buying right away are the SpeedWay Pal aluminum steering rack, 2 of the Alex Racing R2 Aluminum Center Shaft Holder (which are listed as in stock as of me typing this on the Speedtech website), Alex Racing R2 Aluminum Clamp Type Hex Hubs, Alex Racing Ti-nitride coated 6.8mm uncentered ball stud when they are back in stock to help take out some rear toe for stock racing, if you are racing on rug, then you will need a whole ball diff as the kit comes with a one way for the front, ball bearings for the steering rack, and maybe 3 or 4 of the Mid-Span suspension Arms so you have a couple spares. If you want aluminum front and rear hubs, order the Xenon ones as they are the only pink ones you can get. If you want aluminum front knuckles, Jet make a gunmetal/silver set that need some modification to work properly but you will need to track them down as Speedtech does not carry them. When I get my Cuda back together, I will post some pix of it.

Guys did I forget anything for him to think about when purchasing?

The first hopup you need is the Speedway Pal steering rack. I'm not sure what the guys at Alex Racing where thinking but it is nowhere close to having the amount of steering throw that it should have. I have the new rack at it is alot better but I still would like about 2mm more and the blocks would go lock to lock and then if I wanted less steering throw I can decide how much to take out.

You will want a diff for carpet. Only other problem is running 28mm tires. You will need to new Alex Racing low roll center type setup. Their are pics on Speedtech of the Low profile ones from Pal but Alex is making them soon.

Yep thats one of the best items... as far as what ALEX Racing was thinking... that originaly used a TC3 rack when they were 1st doing there testing of the R3 ..... as for the next mod for the R3/2 would be the PAL/Alex Hubs... like you said... the R3 seems to need less caster than the R2...so the Xenon 7 deg hubs would be a bit too much for the R3..??

Well once SPeedtech gets their Cuda stuff in I think I have a nice big order.

I wonder how long for the new Alex lowprofile hubs and caster blocks? I need to run foams and 28mm are no where close to fitting the car.

I'm looking for foam tire setups for stock for my R2.
Not sure where to look with sooo many pages posted.
The track guys are suggesting TRC plaid fronts/purple rears or JACO purple-orange fronts / purple rears.
Thanks

Hit Steve up at Speedtech...he should be able to find out when they will be out...... . .... From what I know they might be out in November some time
