Well we're only human. I think a Cuda FAQ would really help everyone out as far as relevant information.

Default R3 vs R2

i forgot to add..

i am very impressed with the changes they made with the R3 vs. R2.

i did the exact same things i did with my R2 on the R3. and i had a hard time aligning the drivetrain for the R2 so that it spun freely.

on my first try with the R3... i got it to free spin about 3 times longer than my R2. showed it to steve last night..and even he was impressed with it.

i have to say the way the motor mount was designed helped a lot more. it acts as a third shaft holder. and with the "floating" motor mount.. alignment is much easier.

im pretty sure its the long silver one. but maybe i can put the short black on there. im assuming that'll help with more steering? also using the inner hole on the knuckle also right?

Did your kit come with the long silver ones? the kit I got had just the black in them so im going to try them saturday . and for the hole im using aluminum knuckles so there is only 1 hole which would be the outer hole on the stock one.

Nobody is forcing you to read it all. We are all friends in here, it doesnt need to all be about setup junk..

Use the short black one on the knuckle, it'll give you more aggressive turn-in.

How about you actualy contribute something to this thread before you go telling others how to act.
This thread is over a year old so of course there are going to be lots of pages and their will be regular posters that like to have a chat. If you can't handle that then go elsewhere, I don't think you'll find as many knowledgable Cuda drivers in one place though so it's your loss.

It's our thread, we'll babble if we want to

Hoping steve finds some bearings for the steering I see they have switched to them in japan already
Forgive my ignorance, how does the bearing help the steering? Isn't it suppose to roll in one direction means both side of the rack (that're in contact with the bearings) are opposing the bearing rotation?
This thing has been buggin me since I got my TC3 Can't figure it out.
Any reason for this, related to the filing I suppose? Thanks KO.

+/- a few grams...
It doesn't really look much, but cutting the weight in abt half means doubling the torque capacity for its rotational mass.
Is this roughly correct?
