Hmm, some one will be planning on a lot of hard crashes with all those suspension arms

You still using graphite arms on your cuda's KO? or have you gone back to the normal ones for some extra crashability?
Also do you still using mid span or short suspension arms?

It's experimentation time for me

Had a good turnout last night. 54 racers with 22 of them in 19 turn. Web car was dialed but the driver was out to lunch Had a killer TQ run going in every heat just didnt get much help with traffic...or marshalls!! Car is fast as hell through the corners (well 53 people think so...One said I was just fast because of my motor!!) . Still managed a 2nd place finish after getting parked when passing for the lead.

Bad news is that I wont be able to run again untill the first of December

Good to hear the car has speed, even if the driver doesn't
The Cuda does seem to go great with a 19turn, boy do I wish it was warm enough to run outdoors all year here Hadsome awsome fun scaring people with my 19turn on tarmac
Want a lodger?

So what happened to your radio?
You inherit the glitching?

Yea come on over Herm...We have an international airport about 20 minutes from my house just fly in and Ill pick ya up and take you to the track!! Would be fun for sure.

KO I cant believe how good the cuda has been so far. I cant wait to really get some time on the car and really change stuff. I need to get a complete set of springs and some hard mid span arms. I think the hard arms will be better on the high traction of carpet. Guess Ill put some of those in the next order!! LOL

I just got my R2 kit.
Do you have any rubber tire / carpet setups that I could try.
I hear that you are verry successful with the R2.
All I have to start with are the kit settings.

You can PM me or even email if you'd like.

I havent run rubber on carpet just foams. Not sure but I ran at Fernando's (toys for boys) VERY high traction asphalt track with rubber tires and started with Dave Berger's setup on the Alex usa site and it was DIALED. With as much traction as Fernandos has it should work on carpet too. only changes I made was I ran 30 wt oil with Hpi # 2 pistons and ran 1mm kickup in front arms and 1mm under front ball on rear arms as well.

It might be hard to really compare since I am running the xenon/speedway pay type chassis and speedway pal hubs/upperdeck mounts (allows you to run 28mm tires no problem). So they are a little difffernt from the stock chassis. But I would highly reconmend both if you look to upgrade anything in the near future.

Hope this helps...if you need anything else let me know.

I had fun last night but it isn't fun when you have to spend the whole race night pulling over and letting people by... My car had tons of corner speed but just like Eric said, the driver was out to lunch. If I get the diff in the front and get rid of that one way, I will be in better shape. I'll post some pics later tonight, if I can, if not, tomorrow for sure...I have some good ones
