STOP teasing us less fortunate cuda fans
You're EVIL

Dave will probably answer this, do they make the tool set in each of the kit colours? since that one look orange to match the kit.

Can you post those pics showing cuda hubs in lots of different colours again please I want to see what colour options are out there..... dreaming of a left hand cell Herm Edition

Raced the car for the first time Sat night, acualy its the first time I ran the car at all.

Broke the front upright/knuckle after the first tap of the boards entering the turn too hot, totaly my fault. oops it happend on the 3rd lap during my first and only practice run.

missed first qualifier, second qualifier the car was loose in the rear and pushed in the sweeper.

Third qualifier, I changed rear shock position to soften the rear up made a substantial amount of improvement, so I was happy, finished 5th

Main I did make a minor camber change from 2 deg neg to 3, car was alot better and I was starting to get more comfortable, lap times where improveing and was getting more confident, so I pushed a little harder, then I hit the board and my wheelcame flying off, broke the center out of the middle

day over

car is fun to drive need to do some more testing and driving, tried Red Bull's set up as a base line, but my car is BOX STOCK

Oh yea the person who won the race was driving a Baracuda

Steve: I need more parts

Sounds like some alloy hubs are in order for your driving style anyways looks like you had a fun outing with the Cuda the 1st time out just wait till you get more time under your belt with the car...things will pay off

Thats good to know that the minor changes you made to the car helped to improve it quite a bit. I was able to get my Yokomo SD dialed in to the track by the 4'th battery pack on it, hopefully I will have the same luck with the R2.

Maybe alloy hubs But I think I will wait, did a little surgery on a BRP bumper for a TC3 did the trick.

The car has lots of steering with 3 deg toe in in the rear. Steve is sending out a new set of rear up rights, I do already have the accentric balls" did I say that "

I did have fun driving the car. Its kind of funny trying a new car on a new track all on the same occasion.
