Can you tell me a little more about them and a good choice for running stock.

I have run Fantom based on P2K2, Reedy MVP & Trinity Revenge of the monster.

Thanks
For stock I run the monster stock based motor. Should run great as soon as you get it, everything is broken in and aligned. Gear it at 7.1 in the Cuda, has the best all around performance with that ratio.

Default toe in

how much rear toe in does the kit come with?
ther is some rear toe in on the chassie holes and some on the rear hub carriers. it looks like it is a way to much
how much toe in can be added ore reduced with the offset 6,8mm balls?

Well it looks like you had the 1st batch of hard gears that ALEX made just a but to brittle...

Also there is a easy way to get the bearings into the Holder without breaking things and keeping the little tabs on the bevel gear end too

I`ll take some pic`s tommorow to show you how

with the stock a-arm piviot balls you`ll be at 2.5~2.8ish..with normal rear hubs...but if you have the 1 deg hub like I think you do then .. your at 3.5+ ...now the offset ball will bring you up or down 1.2 deg tops..
-Dave

but you might want to try the car with 3 deg it does stay well planted and carries a ton of corner speed..

Thumbs up OK ...here is the Skinny from PAL

THe PAL Drive system II or PAL conversion...what ever you want to call it

is now firm prices on the components..also you don`t have to run the full conversion...you can run the lower deck and add parts as you see fit... also here is the clincher...the Lit is Limmitied!! so you had all better start saving your hard earned $$ because thee wont be many....about 20 of each color and thats it.. the colors are as follows

Black
PAL Silver
Blue
Pink
Purple
Red


and thats it.. ..you can pay to have the color changed...but the Run of Orange might come to a end... there might be a new color Cuda Soon I think....

i dont think the offset balls can bring 1,2deg more toe in
or are u using them in front an rear oft the rear a-arms?

as u can see, i love posting pics

what about using them on the front a-arms. maybe u can adjust the car width?
