Well brothers I tryed the cuda again and it was hooked!! I still didnt race it though it had way to much understeer. How should I fix this. One thing I did was remove the position on the front A-arms from the outside hole to the inside and it helped a little but still alot of understeer.

Move the Rear shocks more outward and get a 1mm shim under the front a-arm sus Balls to get more out of the car for starters..and if you still need more try a .5mm shim under the rear a-arm sus balls(the ones at the end of the chassis)

Drop by my pit Tuesday, I'll check out your setup and help you out. We worked on getting understeer out of the car for quite a while. I never had a problem with a stock motor though...

Just remember to do one adjustment at a time to see where you are going with the set up....

Exactly, I've made more than 1 change at a time, and ended up with some crap setups because of it...
