I've seen Cuda's and they have exposed diff gears. Not good for outdoors. But if you race indoors, both cars are just as nice. Either one could lead you to the podium.

I'd go for the pro 4, I have one so its kinda biased. But the pro4 is everywhere so you know its one hella of a car.

I haven't got either, but if I were choosing I'd look at some international results first.

I think the choice will be easy then. See for yourself.
