maybe stripped is the wrong word? MESSED UP then might be better!Well to start with my bulkheads are dropped 2mm so that in return means the shaft is lower. and I think as i rode one of the pvc pipes it screwed my spur gear up im running a
68 gear not the stock 72

machining off 2mm sounds like more hassle than it's worth maybe if you're Atushi Hara standards you'll want to. The cuda is light enough for me, looks like I'll already have to add a fair bit of weight to bring it up to 1500g, from my very innacurate scales it looks like it's around 1400g at the moment.

I've been checking around for chargers and yet again it seems a case of rip off uk, if I can hold on for a few weeks I think I'll be ordering a Integy INDI 16X5v6 1-10 Cells DC Computerized Charger from Steve, unless Dave makes me an offer I can't refuse I can't believe comanpies think they can add 50% to the price in the UK and justify it as importing and tax

Ok

I thought so ... 2 cuda's you just need one more now ...anyways...you should make the Red one into a R2... you just need like 4 things and thats it
1)Lower chassis
2)A-arms(Mid Span for Carpet)
3)Sway bars for front and rear(to space the shock towers 5mm and to have the sway bars at the same time)
4)PAL drive system

The 2mm was cut off to lower the C/G of the Barracuda... they made a limited run a while back by Club Enthuse that had like 1.5~2mm lowwer bulkheads ...and the PAL version tips the scales at a bit over 1500 with all of the goodies in it (body on)..

Now for the Charger...see what Steve can do for you 1st .. the Novak that I have is in Storage back in Japan...and it's Old as Dirt But it works great...It's a Black Cased Millienum.

GFX
I checked the price of the stealth version and almost fainted, I'm guessing the newer GFX version costs more, I can think of an awful lot of other things to buy and see mroe improvement in my times. For top on the range chargers I like the ProTrack anyway, made in the UK has loads of features, including programmable ring tone like warnings and probably the most upgradable charger there is. For 225 though I'd rather save a bit of money and get another set of cells.
