We had our fair share of Lexan and Carbon carnage... Like I have said in the past, we need to slow our cars down... but we went with the ruleset we have so we can get alot of people into it...

We will have some pictures in the next couple of days...

Has anyone run the Pegasus Cuda ? I like the look of the Cuda(HPI), but it seems a little LARGE in comparsion to the Camaro and Mustang bodies... maybe the Pegasus body is a little slimmer...

I have the Pegasus, and it is pretty big. I assume it's because the real car was pretty big, too. I would have to compare it to the HPI to see if there is any size difference, but it is definitely much longer, and a bit wider than the HPI Camaro I have

BTW I would run 20 car mains any day we could get enough cars. There is nothing more fun than total insanity, and you can charge the marshalls for a cardio workout session.

Slower cars = better racing.

The HPI Cuda and Camaro fit the chassis better, IMO, allowing a nice tuck of the tires inside the body. On the track, they both have the most realistic look to them. The HPI Mustangs tend to ride on top of the tire edges and appear a bit more out of scale than the others.

I'm anxious to see how the Pegasus Mustang and Camaro sit on chassis.

OK, Grenade got me hooked! I am going to run the 70 Cuda from HPI with either a XXX-S or a JRXS. Does anyone have a setup for Asphalt and carpet for either?

I am thinking the burndt Orange with either single or dual stripes down the center.

Thoughts?

If you are going to run the JRXS, download the Josh Numan setup PDF. It's a great rubber tire setup that works everywhere. That's where I'd start. I think the JRXS and JRXS-R are sleepers in this class.

I run the type R. It's real good in VTA with a solid rubber tire setup. I've been working on a foam tire setup in my spare time, and this weekend, the car in VTA trim was pretty damn good with an almost box foam tire setup under it. I believe it still comes down to driving style and smoothness. If you can figure out how to be smooth and roll the thing through the corner freely, your dialed ALMOST regardless of setup. I come from a rubber/carpet background, VTA is almost second nature.

Here in FT Wayne, we're getting 6-8 a week, maybe a few more in the works. We really hope we can continue to grow the class when we move to the blacktop this summer.

rinkrat99 here are my last 3. The Green Cuda was done first, then Violet Cuda and then the Smokey Yunick Camaro. The Camaro is for our new season. These seem to be a little bigger then the Mustangs, but so far everything has come down to driver. So I can only manage to win the "B" main

Hey I'm glad I have numbers and an orange chin spoiler on my Green & Black Cuda!!! I had not planned on bringing the TA down for Saturday, but just might bring it down and make a change to my set up. (Thanks Chris!!!)
