Okay, I am back from the dead, so to speak. I have somewhat got moved into our new home and it has been stressful. I had a bad allergic reaction to some antibiotics but over that now. I never been through that and don't wish it on anyone. Also, my pick up gave up the ghost right before were going to move so that made the move fun on one day off. I plan on racing in Murfreesburo,TN for our Tri-State series outside this Saturday so I have to set the car up for asphalt. I wish I could find the time. Plus having computer problems and all above, I've had a real great week and a half...I wish the month of April would go away...Be glad to afford some spare parts and hop ups for the car I've ran once...Joseph, are you going to the race this Saturday? I plan on leaving in the weeeee hours of Saturday morning unless someone gives me money for a hotel...

Hi Guys,

Sorry about that posting the setup sheet, my web gal was out sick today. She'll be back tomorrow and I'll have her post it up.

As for racing last night, I didn't do too well, I think I tried too many adjustments and basically I dialed myself out last night. I finished somewhere in the middle of the B, but I'll be back again next week, probably experimenting with more stuff

I tried some sway bars last night (1.2mm front and rear) and it seems to make a big difference on how the car handles. The car feels more precise and "together" with the sway bars on. However, the stiffer 1.2mm seem to be good for the front, but maybe a tad too stiff in the rear (for our particular layout last night) I also experimented with stiffer springs (1.4 dia. 5.75 coils and 5.5 coils)

Redbullfixx (our cuda driver) once again qualified into the A-main with a great run that put him second on the grid. He was probably one of the fastest car on the track last night, his barracuda looked amazing! Needless to say I'm copying his setup for next week to start off...I think in the future, I'll just post Redbull's results...looks a lot more attractive than mine Good run last night!

Steve Wang

I'll have to agree with you on the sway bars .. Makes a big differance .... but I like a tad bit bigger bar up front with the Cuda myself..

Nice to have a setup to get ideas from. Would be good if we eventually had a range of setups from you aggresive one to a mild one and so on.

One thing I've been wondering is there any chance of either Alex Racing or SpeedTech putting together an R2 kit with most of, if not all of, the hopups included. Like a Hara edition Pro 3 we don't want a Dave edition though
