-1 deg rear camber

I'm thinking of flipping my rear alloy hubs over to get 1 degree toe in but that seems a bit extreme. Don't have any swaybars so there goes one tuning option My first choice would have been to put the rear bars on.
Hmmm I would try getting some of the offset 6.8mm A-arm balls so you could mess around with the rear toe.... and I would also invest in some 1.2mmsway bars and a set of 1.5 x [email protected]?1.5 x 5.75 springs too and that would be a good starting point

Finally after weeks of testing it was coming, just a matter of when. Well with the help of the new "Rubber Diff" it was time the CUDA took that final step to the top of the podium

I am so stoked on this car right now....

Thanks for all the assistance Steve & Madjack.

I think now its "Our Time"

TQ, and win 19T spec class.

Congratulations, man!

RedBull: Forgot to ask you a simple question: I saw you ran 1/2 degee camber, so you measured them by using setting wheels or just rubber tires? Thanks!

1 deg front
2 deg rear
Using setup wheels

I am now trying 1.5 deg front, as we have a few critical turns that are banked. So-cal is a banked oval road course.

The upper camber link positions feel pretty good too. Just tried them yesterday & it feels like more grip all around

Guys, no word on the "rubber diff" until after the Reedy race, the competition might steal the idea. Redbull, I got one of them in my car right now, we'll see how it works on Tuesday!

Steve Wang
I saw some guys using the Traxxas teflon pegs (used for slipper clutch in most of their cars) instead of diff balls and locking it down. Could it be the same? But technically, they wont be diffs, or are they?

That's been tried before too, but it still slipped too much I believe.

Well my wild guess is that since an alloy or steel spool causes too much wear, what about one machined out of some kind of rubber...
so it would have some give it in to cusion impacts.

I bet I'm miles off

Well, I guess we will just have to wait until after the Reedy race to find out what it is.
