well with the 8T on the cuda you would have to have the speedway pal drive system and 64 P gears and i would try like a 98/28 gearing.
but dave would be able to answer that a bit better he has some nice big tracks there to run 8T and better.

It is if you plan on running mod class and 64 P gears.
reason for the pal system with mod motors is the stripping of the gear. you plan on running stock or 19T then the standard motor mount and 48P gears will be just fine

yes..if you're running 64p and mod it's highly recommended. it has a bearing support new the spur gear.

Ok guys I need some input. What type of demand would there be for a chassis kit along the lines of the Xenon, Speedway Pal, etc in the US if it retaild for HALF what the previously mentioned ones do? It would be just as high of quality and made in the USA. Before I chunk over the money to get it going I just want to make sure it will fly.

If it does then chassis for other cars will follow TC3, EVO's, etc. And possibly some alumn pieces down the road as well.

Just looking for some input.

Thanks

eric anderson

If it was well designed and high quality I'm sure you'd sell a few but you say "possibly some alumn pieces down the road as well" does this mean you wouldn't include the aluminium pieces that come with the Xenon and Speedway PAL conversions? since thats half the point of both of them, and half the cost.
You would also have a problem with anodizing, with the Cuda coming in so many different colours, demand would be varied, and would you be able to match the colours done by Speedway PAL?
