Hi Dave, great looking car. I have a question regarding the alloy front and rear hubs that you were using, are they speedway pal or similar to it? They are shorter than the Plastic ones that come with the stock cuda kit. If you are going to install the speedway pal c-hubs and rear hubs, do you also need to use the speedway pal PB042 thing to change the location of the camber links and move it lower and on the side than that of the original mounting position? I recently installed the pal hubs and noticed that my front and rear roll centers became low and noticed that I can't be too aggressive on my cuda anymore, it becomes a little bit twitchy sometimes during off power, is this caused by not fitting in part number PB042? Or are they just for the mid span arms? I notice too that the camber links become shorter when you install this part. I feel like the car doesn't like to be set up with low roll centers in front and rear. Thanks in advance, any info will be greatly appreciated.
You will need that part # if your going to use the PAL hubs...your going to need 2 sets ...and you can only use the mid span a-arms with them too..(short span also)

Thank you for the info. What are the advantages and disadvantages of having mid-span or short span arms?

you will find the mid span and short span arms are good for tight twisty tracks and are super for carpet racing

Just wondering because the hub and block mounting positions are the same on the long and mid span arms, why can't the long span be run?

wish I could afford it right now, but I can't. Nothing more than have a pink car that can be the class of the field...working on my blue one to do the job after everyone saying they are going fishing for cuda...lol...at least i finish with my a arms still on the car, ehm, TC3, ehm. but I don't get into the crashes they do...I use my head when I race, since I don't have the go power I try to use driving to win or finish up to the top.
