True lots of motors vary a bunch thats why some are dogg's and some just right out RIP!!

But you have Gaz to work on your stuff and Give you advice.... I have Eric Anderson

Well my new to me Cuda R2 showed up today. I'm in the process of going over it and switching everything to the Xenon chassis and drive setup. So far so good. Don't for see any problems.

Does a 100 tooth 64 pitch gear fit the Cuda and what is the final drive ratio on the car?

Thanks
Brian

no 98t 64dp is the highest that you can go.

Are you sure about that ... I have run 100's before with the Xenon Chassis and still had lower chassis clearance ( even if it was very very close to being flush with the bottom of the chassis )

Mine clears the toplate but hits the chassis. Not a problem I will just get a 96 tooth.

Anyone know the final drive ratio on the Cuda? Are you guys going to make me count the teeth on the gears.

Try putting a slight chamfer where the spur would sit...also some makers spurs are quite differnt in size..say for example a xenon 96 spur is much smaller overall Dia than a Kimbrough.
... FOod for thought

2.44 same as your Pro 4.. or you can take 39x16 to get the down to the wire ratio

Thanks Dave. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count that high.

So far I have the rear of the car almost all on the Xenon chassis. I did also put the mid span hardened arms on as well. I do need to get some shock bushings. When I bought the R2 used it didn't have any on it. Not a problem though as I'm going ot get everything built onto the Xenon chassis and then order from Speedtech all the stuff I need plus a few other goodies.

Anyone know what degree of caster the Xenon caster blocks have? My car came with them on. One more question is if I use the off setup ball studs what degree of toe in does it remove. The car looks like it has 3 degrees of toe per side right now. I would like to have a little less. Maybe use 1 degree hubs or off set ball studs or some zero degree rear hubs would be nice to.

Xenon Hubs = 1 deg
the offset Balls for the A-arms will take out or add about 1~1.5deg.... one more thing you can do is flip the Xenon hubs around to talk out some of that rear toe..

and as for what deg toe in you have right now..... I would say that you ar in the ball park of 2.8~3.0 deg in
