you just got an R2 cuda - great!

i would suggest that you get the alum shaft holders, the race the car a while to determine what you may find required. use 48pt gears and spurs between 69 and 72 in this configuration and you should be good to go. Use Kimbrough Spurs or other strong material the thin units won't last long.

not sure if your outdoor or indoor but if you go to alexracingusa.com website and you'll find setup sheets to get you started.

oh one other item you may want would be springs - a couple stiffer and one softer. if your indoor on carpet you'll need to ask others here - but would expect you would want very stiff?

Default Something for the Cuda Owners

Ok, So this morning Jimmy and I ran Pinky and it was really dialed just like my WEB Special. Now the only problem is Jimmy can't use Pinky to compete because he's contracted with another Factory so we'll be sharing Pinky for the time being.

I'm thinking to offer my WEB Special to the market since it's only had like 2 runs on it and is still considered almost brand new. Knowing that there aren't anymore made, I'm sure someone will be happy to take over the ownership of it.

Comes with everything that the Web Special has but also included a full set of Squat Dry Racing bearings which I've paid over $ 60 just to get it here from R10. I figured I'd post here just so you guys can have first shot at it.
