Hi Guys,

we'll have a couple setup sheet posted on www.alexracingusa.com soon these setups are developed by Dave Berger, who has consistently made the A-main with his Cuda at our local track and it is one of best drivers around in my opinion He has spend countless hours at the track developing setups for us, thank you Dave! and congrats on another great run last night.

Steve Wang

Started to put the R2 together last night and have a question:

When attatching the top deck I found if I sc rewed it down really tight the plastic gear covers flex a bit and cause the deck to lift a bit at the ends. Has anyone else noticed this? How tightly do you screw the deck on?

Also there is a little plastic piece that fits inside the front one-way cups, I couldn't see which bit this was supposed to be, any pointers??

Just use the black o-rings for the one-way outdrives.

Thanx Stevo but...
I wouldn't say I've been finding setups so much as just learning the car & trying to figure out wtf is up with the latest batch of Sorex 36R tyres
The So-Cal layout this week was back to somewhat of a normal flow and I have gone back to more of a standard setup with the longer susp arms which I think are on the car to stay. Midspan are tricky to drive on, some may like that kind of twitch reaction, whereas the longer arms are certainly more stable once the bite comes up on the track.
1.2mm & 1.0mm swaybars front & rear 40wt/30wt oil 5mm ride height, 3mm droop. No roll center, anti-squat, or anti-dive yet.
I agree with Dave that the CUDA almost requires the swaybars to "feel" right.
I'd say to start with... stock setup with the sway-bars would be a good default setup for anyplace, what do you think Dave ?

The deck should not be lifting. The chassis may be tweaked a little. The diff hubs may be applying pressure on the chassis. Unscrew the diff hubs to reduce the pressure on the chassis and try again.

Make sure you assemble the chassis on a flat surface such as a setup board. Screw the top deck in while holding the lower deck firmly down on the flat surface. It should sit flat on the setup board.

Like Macky said, use the black black o-rings in the one-way outdrive cups. I'm pretty sure they meant you to use the o-rings, it may have been drawn incorrectly on the diagram.

hmmm. I noticed that too with the kit/plastic center shaft holders, the optional aluminium holders take care of that nicely

Sorex 36R's?? man it must be hot in Cali' .. I still Like the Yokomo 7B's when it's about 50~75 outside ...

Also the sway bars ...are a much needed Item. ...I like to use one size bigger up front than I do in the rear... 1.4F & 1.2R....but this is with the PAL Short Span arms and Stock racing
