But the Cuda is a Very simple kit to build

WOW!!! thats some funky graphite
Disco Cuda

The shaft wobble solution looks interesting, something totaly new. Some closer pics of that would be great

What are the discharger specs? 20 or 30 amp discharge with individual autocutoff at 0.9v per cell would be nice

Can't make out too much of the steering rack, looks similar to what we already have but maybe in alloy, and a little narrower, since the top deck seems straighter
