Hmm you going to run the Pro4 then !!! I'm thinking of getting a Pro4. I only sold mine because I couldn't get parts when they first came out but now it shouldn't be much of a problem.

Hi Tim

See you have succumbed to a good car.
Whether your aware that is the configuration I have been racing at the club for the past 6 months, so I will see you at West Kent on Sunday so we can get our heads together.

Default Do it yourself Outdrive Shields

The diameter of the diff outdrive is 10mm, the majority of shock absorbers have an internal diameter of exactly the same measurement. I used an old Xray shocker, and with a small amount of use with a dremel they made super tight sleeves with no gluing, and they have not moved in 6 months.

Unfortunately I wont be racing on Sunday due another commitment but I will hopefully see you next time. Is yours an R2 or a Triox?

Hi Dave,
i tried your setup today and i must say that the cornering speed is FAST!!! turns in nice and holds the line relatively well (with a slight push mid and exit on power) off power steering is excellent and really responsive.
I do have a question though, when you say med-tight diff, approximately how many turns out from fully tightened? initially i was 1/8th out but the rear end was too tail happy...right now i'm at approximately 5/8 of a turn out from full tight and it tamed the rear end by a lot but to tame it totally, it will bleed too much power away and loose corner speed. is there another way to tame the sliding rear end? there is this bastard of a corner where i race where at the end of the main straight there's this tight little chicane leading into a 180 degree hair pin where my car really, really hates and this is where i'm mainly having problems. it doesnt like high speed off power direction changes. A lot of other cars are having trouble with this corner too but i just want to show them how good this car is (to prove that this car "works") that's why i really want it to handle well and pass them on that particular corner
any insight would be tried and appreciated
cheers mate.
Looks like your car is a prime candidate for a spool. Spool will push slightly off power but give you the steering back on power.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

I would like to run my spool more but it really tears up my idler gears if I hit anything. I know a spool would be faster for me but I get tired of changing out the gear.

Gotta like that.

JDM_DOHC_SiR anything arrive yet? I do have a question for you or anyone that can help out. I'm using the Pal front hub setup and was wondering what the caster is with them? What are you guys doing for camber link adjustments since you only have one spot on the Pal setup? Sometimes I like to move my links to get different results and seem now not to be able to.

Also for you guys that run spools in the Cuda do you have problems knocking teeth off the idler gears if you tap a wall or barrier during a race? If not did you do anything special to keep this from happening?

Thanks
Brian
