I was running long span arms, sure do flex a bit?!?!?!?

As mentioned earlier car was planted after turning up steering rate, using 70% of full lock on radio for what its worth.

Funny thing was when I was practicing with it, there were a few local know alls stood below the rostrum watching the cars go by. Each car that went by, they guessed what it was by the whine of the transmission, they didnt have a clue when the Cuda shot past. S m o o o o t h and q u i e t, is there any other way!!!!

Hey Gazza.

Try out the Mid spans..you might be a bit surprised..

also did you try some of my Drive train tricks to make the cara bit more quite,,??

Speaking of noise, my cuda was extra noisey today
the spur isn't in perfect condition but it doesn't normaly create that much noise, only other thing I can think of is the new diff but thats shimmed as far as it will go away from the small bevel gear and all bevel gears look quite tidy. Could be the titanium pinions I was using, they were fine on my Lab but the Cuda just doesn't like them. All my smaller pinions are titanium though what a pain it would be to replace 10 pinions I've already got.
Need to get rid of the tractor noise though, it was kind of annoyting when racing, had no chance of hearing the motor rev up, no one else could hear their cars either

The gears may just need to break in a little bit. What you might want to try doing is getting spur gears made by the same company that makes the pinion gears, they should mesh together better than a mismatch...

How much shorter than the mid-span arms are the short-span arms? Do they need special hubs to adapt?

nope all of the regular stuff will fit just fine..
they are shorter about the same distance that the mid spans are to the Long spans..
