Noting...but I think that driving it is better than looking at it sit on a self and get dusty while it`s conterparts get used ..

I still ..don`t know...I really want 350$ for the CE-4....it`s been built up quite a bit since I got.. it......It needed a little help in the bearing/diff department

I've got a simple answer to that, put a glass case over it then you need to dust the case instead

$350 is big bucks for a second hand car but then I suppose it's had an awful lot more than that spent on it

I still don't know how you manage to use all your other cars, must be nice having so many tracks you can go to on different days and I don't know how you manage to keep them all that clean, it normaly takes me a couple days to do just one properly although my idea of a days work isn't something to be proud of

You got that Right...thee has been quite a bt on $$ put into the CE-4...

anyways I am very fast at fixing these cars since I have lots of them to fix al of the time ...I can take out a diff and rebuild it and put it back in the cuda and adjust the tweak in 20 min`s

Dave, if I may. I was able to visit some shops in Akihabara a couple of times and there is one store there that carries parts for the R2. I believe its the "Super Radicon" shop along Showa Dori.

Paul

ps: Can't wait to get my hands on that 'cuda which i got from swapping my SD.

Angry Got gutted by an SD....

Hey Dave:
I was checking out Masami's setup from 3/29/03 and the "32R with yok39m" caught my eye ?
What is the temp like around that time ?
And are those med to low grip conditions ?


My Fish pushed so bad last night.....man !
Kinda caught me off guard as the balance had been quite good until I put the race tyres on and raced about an hour later...But I guess that's my deal, 1 step forward 2 steps back :-\

What do you think about Rayspeeds new pistons (1.1, 1.2, & 1.2 3holes) could be something good for us eh.

Congrats Joey O, good to have out there racin again

Your car definately did look loose in practice, but still seemed like it had tons of front traction in the races. It looked like you pushed coming out of the turns, you might want to go back to the stock caster angle..

Well Dave.. the Temps arounf that time of the year..are about mid 60`s to low 70`s on a hot day,... ...

But I steer clear of Yokomo inners... nothing but trouble..!! I only Use Xenon ones now..they wear great and I can take the car to any track and be pretty close ....may be one up or one down

as for the Pistions....the HPI Black #2`s are very nice and the stock ones drilled to 1.2mm are the Hot ticket...I don`t know if the RaySpeed ones will fit the Cuda`s Damper Case......

Care to be the Black Sheep to test them and see if they do..??

though the 1.2 X 3 would be way to soft for my likings

-Dave
