Cuda's need a little TLC on the 16T & 39T gears to make the drive train smooth and spin for a long time...
For starters..... you'll need some 400~600 grit wet dry sand paper and you'll need to spend about 3 hours just removing all of the peaks on the bevel and diff gears
and buy doing this you'll be able to tell just by the gear mesh and that there is less noise too!! especially if you have a Motor/shaft mount holder ( which usually makes the drive train noisy
But with the 400( 320 is what I use
start to remove a liberal ammount of material ...say about 1mm on the 39T Diff gear
This should take a whole Sh!t lo@d 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
