He, like most of us, is using the mid-span arms. The wheels will still sit the same distance from the chassis, but the mid-span arms change the physics of the pivot point and the roll center. From the Xray website:
so this mean , the Mid-Span arms is shorter then the original arms, am i right!?

Yes Shorter...

3 types of arms you can get for the Cuda
Long
Middle
Short(made by PAL for the R1..but can work on the R2/3 with a few modifications )

Wyd they helped a bunch. I put the front ball with the line on the inside and the rears with the line on the outside. I then flipped the carriers so the R is on the L and vice-versa. Correct?

I like the orange and the pink colors because they are different. I would like to see a car done in yellow. It could be cool if it doesn't look to gold-ish in color. I have seen a Losi in green.

That is right. I will be at DC in a few weeks so I will let you know when I'm coming down. Not saying my car will work but you can look at my setup.

If you take a RPM camber gauge and set your car straight up and downyou will see it should read about 1 degree of toe in for you. If you need better pics let me know.

also, the A-arm that you mount on the outer screw hole, is it the original A-arm (stock one from the kit )?? if so, do you need to modify or replace any tunbucles to make it works??

I am new to my R3, so hopefully you dont mind explain this to me!?
Yes there the MID span arms

Used for the reasons everyone else on here is stating

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you

National Championship Round 1, 2 & 3 in Malta (Europe)

Xenon Converted R2s or R3s won the DHI Cup (with Xenon 23T Gold Dot Controlled Motor) and all Super Stock Races (with Corally 21T Controlled Motor)

From three races in the Open Modified Class, our best results were 2nd, 2nd and 1st

(Drivers over here are competing mainly with Associated TC3s, Yokomos and Barracudas now)

As for stiffness/rigidity i got the alloy center shaft holders/bulkhead braces, So with the 4 screws holding them down you tell me how it going to be less rigid think about it !!! the cuda isn't designed like other cars that was the only reason i could do it !!! (it's a mod i can't believe someone else hasn't tried before, but without the alloy braces it simiply wouldn't be possible because of flex which my car does not !!!!)

Sorry but i'll mention this one last time for everyone i AIN'T splitting up my car.....IF someone wants it great, if not GREAT too i said i was THINKING about swapping it in and that exactly what i meant. If i'm offered something sensible for it i'll let her go, if not i'll happily race it still or simply buy another car.....
The bulkheads will be fine but I'm thinking about the top deck itself, it is held on now at each end with only two screws and it doesn't sit on much of a flat surface. It's like grabing the very end of a ruler with a couple of fingers rather than grabbing it with your fist.
I did 'think about it!!'

Now thats a better solution to the turnbuckle angle "issue"

I'm not sure I like the plain graphite though, looks like a HPI Sport 2 type material... and they still have those annoying two slots for cells on the motor side

The design that will be made by BMI should fix that issue
