You planning on crashing a lot?

not a bad scheme, don't think I like what they did with the 300M front grill and the headlights look like they have huge eyelashes with too much mascara stratus is nicer

I like darker colour schemes myself, my black with purple stripey fade seems to be my best shell so far, especially in terms of durability, the front end was practicly turned inside out and there's not a sign of cracking or peeling in the paint, not bad for cans.

another of my best shells, using the same two pearl type purples but with white. the white decided to part comapny with the shell though

Hey Dave,
You looking for a B4, my local Hobbytown has 3 of them in stock as of 5 minutes ago. It's a little pricey though, $199.99 + tax. Let me know if you want 1, I will hook you up.

Hey Dave,

No, I am afraid to say that the glitching was still there again, but not as bad as before. I did many things to stop the glitching (different receiver, different motor, rerouted receiver and antenna, receiver battery pack and regular batteries in my transmitter which gave it an additional 2.4 volts) but I still had problems. I am getting a 27 MHz module and receiver for my M8 and I am hoping that will solve the problem.

All in all the Cuda really felt good and it also showed it's durability once again with all of the radio hits that I was taking. This is one solid car.

Sorry to here about all of the radio problems ...that's one of the resons that I refuse to use 75mhz ...

But I'm glad to hear that the Car "TANK" is holding up .. hopefully you'll be able to fix the radio problems soon..

Lightbulb Barracuda Stuff

OK here is the latest info that I can give you all on some of the new stuff that will be coming out in Japan ...There is more but this is it right now for the Cuda'

My Buddy just has Started a small production run of Private One Off parts for the R2...

The Things that he is testing right now are
1) TC-3 Style steering system (helps with Ackerman a little)
2) Rear Carbon Braces that you have seen in some of the Pic's before( this item gets rid of some of the Twist if you run on a High Bite Track such as Carpet or a weel preped Asphalt Track....
3) Carbon fiber battery hold down brace Like Alex Racings ALooy one but just Carbon Fiber...( But here's the catch they will be colored carbon fiber I.E. Blue, Red & Purple hues )
Thats it for now..I'll have pic's in the next day or so if he ever gets of his lazy butt and sends them..

Thanks
-Dave

coloured carbon battery straps

Put me down for a blue one, NOW! ooh yes please, think I'll wait on getting an alloy one, would much rather have a lightweight carbon one
Is he getting a batch machined? I always thought it looked a bit odd with the alloy ones saying Alex, since it looks like your name is alex how about he makes them with CUDA written on them instead

whats the TC3 steering like anyway?
