JohnA,

Yes, that's the correct part number

Thanks for the reply, just to be sure, the only 1 degree rear knuckles I could find were part No. 6113 for the Barracuda R1 are these what I need to reduce the rear toe on the R2?

Itchynads That was one fast car you had at TFTR on Sunday, looked really nice too! The main reason I'm getting one!

Thanks John! I was pretty impressed myself. Very rarely you see a car that has looks plus the performance to back it up. If you do get one I'm pretty sure you won't be dissapointed

It definitely had all the speed one could hope for.

It helped me achieve what I set out to do on the day (to get consistent 16 lappers). Now I just have to stop hitting boards...If I can do that I will be able to edge a little closer to the magical 17 lapper barrier. I had a run which would have put me tantalisingly close to it but as usual something had to go wrong during that run and battery bar became unsoldered...leaving me stranded

My Evo3 may still have the smoothest drivetrain but it never was as fast down the straight which makes me believe that there are more important factors to consider in a car. Not too mention that the 'cuda is just a much more robust car when you consider that you can tap boards without wrecking the one way gear

I'm also getting to the point where I may even get a second 'cuda so I can set it up differently...perhaps even sell the Evo3 to do it.

I am assuming that you are using rubber tires and not foams. Anyway, I had to use the front and rear droop screws to get the ride height down to the 4.5 to 5 mm.

Dave, was correct, but I still feel that the torque rods firm things up a little especially when taking sharp turns at high speeds.

I hope this helps, Mike
Mike: I run rubber tires. Hmmm... If you use droop screws to set ride height, then there will be no rebound stroke then... Please correct me if I'm wrong!

Man, I'm so miserable and I'm up all night, and check my mail and see all this... You all sure pick on a man when he's down...lol and then make fun of his height, age, etc...for shame...Maybe God made me short because He knew I'd bump my head a lot?? Well, looks like another trip to the doctor today because of me having an allergc reaction to some antibiotics I had to take last week fo an upper respitory infection...

Posted by Dave in the other thread, now you just need a yokomo chart


1.4 x 7.00 = 212 gm/mm
1.4 x 6.75 = 224 gm/mm
1.4 x 6.50 = 236 gm/mm
1.4 x 6.25 = 250 gm/mm
1.4 x 6.00 = 266 gm/mm
1.4 x 5.75 = 283 gm/mm
1.4 x 5.50 = 303 gm/mm
1.4 x 5.25 = 327 gm/mm

1.5 x 7.00 = 275 gm/mm
1.5 x 6.75 = 289 gm/mm
1.5 x 6.50 = 305 gm/mm
1.5 x 6.25 = 323 gm/mm
1.5 x 6.00 = 343 gm/mm
1.5 x 5.75 = 366 gm/mm
1.5 x 5.50 = 393 gm/mm
1.5 x 5.25 = 422 gm/mm

Hey, CUDA fans. At the Hobby People race in Camarillo on Saturday, the CUDA was awesome. The car really made up for some bad driving. I managed to qualify third in the main despite rolling the car three times. I didn't get any better in the main and rolled three more times letting the leaders get away, but each time I was able to reel them back in again. I ended up third, but the times show that I was definitely the fastest on the track. I know I should probably experiment more with setups, but the car is so good right now I'm scared to mess with it
