verdict:-
stock setting desperately need more off power steering will do some setup changes when i solve the spur problems.....noticable torque steer...will add weight on motor side...

by the way any recommendation on one piece motor mount??one flag seems to be way on the high side of pricing

The one piece motor mount seems to be a "must" for Barracuda... although I insisted in not getting one for some time...

I now run with the one flag, I got it from 2nd hand and it hadn't be run before, just lucky! I doesn't see racers nearby run with a square one...

by the way do u guys run 64 or 48 pitch spurs??

ok for the one piece motor mount it seems that flag and square come with the shaft...just wondering if the stock shaft would be able to be used on the mount or will it be deemed as junk once i get the 1pc mount

Talking 48 pitch .now..but

I have the both the square and the one flag mount for my 'Cuda's ..with the One Flag you can use the carbon shaft still.. or the optional front one way drive shaft. But with the square you are stuck with the drive shaft they supply ....but I'm working out something with that right now

Wink thanks I'll try that

I belive that 1 or 2 shops in the states can get them ..but there not an Official Importer though..
Quote:

Sure do very similar. but for the Barracuda ..it's much easier to work on, very simple design that works well..
Quote:

Red
Blue
Pink
Purple
Silver(Speedway PAL version)

Only weak points on the Barracuda is the A-arms & motor mount..(best to upgrade to the One Flag or the Square one...or Product D)

I frequently run at Kai Tak (Friday night, after work) instead of going to PYC!! You know, I lived in HK side and it's really a long way to go to Fan Ling!
I missed my days at PYC also... Wish to meet you so!
