and as for what deg toe in you have right now..... I would say that you ar in the ball park of 2.8~3.0 deg in

Thanks Dave. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count that high.

So far I have the rear of the car almost all on the Xenon chassis. I did also put the mid span hardened arms on as well. I do need to get some shock bushings. When I bought the R2 used it didn't have any on it. Not a problem though as I'm going ot get everything built onto the Xenon chassis and then order from Speedtech all the stuff I need plus a few other goodies.

Anyone know what degree of caster the Xenon caster blocks have? My car came with them on. One more question is if I use the off setup ball studs what degree of toe in does it remove. The car looks like it has 3 degrees of toe per side right now. I would like to have a little less. Maybe use 1 degree hubs or off set ball studs or some zero degree rear hubs would be nice to.
ive flipped my rear hubs from around to have about 1.5 per side and i lost .5 seconds a lap.....switched it back and was fast again(stock rubber)...you might wanna experiment with that...when i first got my R2 i ran stock foam in kit form and i was .5 seconds a lap faster then the guys i normally ran even with at the time...the car drove around the corners and seemed really slow but the lap t imes proved otherwise...but back end wasnt loose like i like it for any reason...too easy to drive and soooo fast

-Dave
Where do I get the Jet Hobby knuckles? I have not seen any alloy knuckles on a website. Can you refer me to one that will ship to the U.S.?

P.S. Will this conversion be in pink carbon fiber? I need it to match my pink R3 and think there is one other member who might want pink cf too

This is a great thread. You need Cuda help this is the place. Man I'm working hard to have the car exactly the way I want it for next Sat. I'm racing mod with it. I normally run stock or sometimes 19 turn but this track I'm going to mainly runs mod. Last time I was their with my Pro4 I was TQ by a lap. I have some ideas on gearing that I had on my Pro4 so will see what happens.

Jet Hobby Home page

I think Satin Black and Gloss Black for starters
