I have seen the setup sheet..... ...But the way he like his car set up... it's a tad bit twitchy and on the tail loose side

but he might have done some different mounting of the wing on the Protoform 2.0..

Ok, for us Barracuda rookies...Excel, Xenon, Product"D". Who?? and What do they do. Web addresses if any?? Looks like a good time to get on the Barracuda train....I hope they come stateside and make a good impression. Alot of guy's seem to be looking for a truly race quality car that doesn't need a huge number of hop ups to be competitive. Is Barracuda the one ??

But with the 400( 320 is what I use less time )
start to remove a liberal ammount of material ...say about 1mm on the 39T Diff gear ....

This should take a whole Sh!t [email protected] of resistance out of the Barracudas' drive train

also a little bearing prep doesn't hurt either

Try this and let me know
BTW my cuda's on aveage can spin for about 10~14 seconds without tires !! but before all of the prep work they only spun for about 5~6 tops
