Has anyone ever tried to install Alex Racing Part no. A6542 Shock Quick Screw? Is this useful?

Hi Mark,

You only have to loosen on bolt to move the shocks upper position + you get a flat tool that will you hold the offset 6.8mm balls in position when you set your rear toe

GTO2 the higher arm position make the CG lower not higher, now if you ajust the ride height same as the front and rear than the would changing the roll center to lower position

KJ if you add spacer in the front ball mount will give you more kick up and more streering coming out of the corner and slow into the turn... add Spacer in the back mount front arm will give you anti dive more steering into the turn but will not take the bumping very well.. PS don't add four spacers in the front the change the roll center

Default Need some help

What size 48p spur gear do you guys recommend for the R3? Also, should I get a servo saver and if so, what one fits the nicest?

The R3 needs a servo saver. The R2 had one built in but that used a different steering setup.

mm, this is how i understand it, probably the rear will ended up with lesser drop range if the shocks can be lengthen .

raving-monkey,

Most of the time, we have a good supply of all the parts for the cuda in stock, so finding parts won't be a problem. I personally run this car as well, so it is even more essential I have parts to support the car

If he's in the Navy or affiliated, it's possible he's dead. Just a guess.
