I'm just returning from my first run with the R3 and finished 5th in the A-Main, so i'm very Happy with the Car. I run aprox. 20 batteries and nothing went brocken . We where driving on a small Carbet track with Take-Off CS27 Tires and 23 turn Stock Motor. I have checked the setups on the Alex racing USA HP but did not find a proper setup for the track. The car handelt great over all but it just dident roll as easy in corners, there i lost the most time. So hier my question, how can i get the car to reduce the drag in corners?

Any help welcome

Thanks
I move my steering link upside and forward, toe out 0.5. (there's pic one or two page back).
Rear toe in 3deg. Ride height F-R 5-5.5.
I post some decent setup a while back...not sure if it works at your track though.

Well I backed home from the big race in Seattle..Let me tell you,man those Losi xxx-s with the new black belt they are pretty fast on the track..In the A-main there were two losi and three TC3 and two barracuda R2 ,I coulf had finishing in third but I got 6 places not bad for first race with the barracuda..The motor was a dog and I was useing putnan brushes and that was a mistake i made,should kept the 767 brushes.. Oh well that's life

Ko Racer today I saw your old R3 that my buddy just bought from you. That damn car is nothing but bad ass. It is very free and great overall appearance. You did a great job on building that car.

Only problem I saw with the car (not really the car) is it is very light and will need a ton of lead weights for it to hit the weight limit. That is my only problem with the car. Not much to complain about but it was the only thing I found that I didn't care for.

Beautiful car overall. If I was to buy another car other than my BMI TC3 it would be a Cuda R3. Great looking car. Can't wait to see Chris race it this weekend with me. I'm sure I will try it out.

KO builds them right way, he doesn't skip on the detail. The Tech car he has is pretty nice too. Looks razberry color but it's pink

Ko could you post a pic of your new Tech Racing car sometime. I would like to see one from a racer. I guess it is similiar to the 415 from Tamiya excpet yours is a pink type color.

Interesting car KO, just a bit too rare for me to be tempted though. If I was going belt it would be the new X-Ray.
I'm sticking with whats served me well for the last year though
Had a good nights racing last night, over the last few months we've had a good rise in club numbers and all of a sudden competition at the top is getting tight. Managed to qualify 4th which was ok but in the final I finished 2nd which I'm pretty pleased with. Had to hold of two of the fastest guys in the club tailing me for a good few laps, they ended up taking each other out
