Well I'm just back from my first night of racing the cuda, with mixed results.
The rear toe in is actually very useful indoors, the back end was nice and stable (considering I was running a front one way)
It took some time for me to get used to running the front one way on the slippy wooden floors, used to run one outside on tarmac and liked it a lot so remembered how to adapt but still had to think about every corner a little more than normal
The car was a little noisey and found it even worse in the final, at the end of the race I found the spur gear was almost fully stripped
I noticed a little spur gear wobble befoe I ran it but didn't have time to take the car apart and fix it, I think I over tightened the screws in the spur gear and only used two so it kind of bent the spur gear. I also need to put it on the other side of the holder so it's closer to the motor, I could only get a half mesh as it was.
I qualified a little down on what I'd normally expect, 7th in the A when I could easily be 6th and possibly 5th if I had been running a normal front diff. I was getting faster every run though and once I had the gearing sorted it was incredibly fast in a straight line, still with good acceleration.
In the final I managed to avoid most of the first corner carnage and came out of the first lap in 4th
got close to third but was trying to be careful with my new toy
and soon the faster guys who'd crashed at the first corner were moving back up, by the end I finished 5th though, which is not bad, the guy in 4th is someone I normally swap good and bad weeks with, normaly I'll do well and beat him easy then the next week I'll do bad and he'll do well, we never seem to have a good setup on the same night
Going to travel down south on Sunday if the weather is good for an open meeting at one of the only permanent outdoor tracks in the region, still 90 miles away though
the one way should work very very well at the track though, the end of the straight has a nice fast sweeper that fast cars with diffs in need to brake slightly for but a one way can take it at full speed
Indoors with a normal diff up front I can see this car being incredible
outdoors in 19T spec class I think I'll embarris a few people too
