I'm just glad we are getting some cars on the way here.

Nice pic, do you ever race the CE4? how does it handle with the strange layout?

About to get my car put back together for some stock motor racing outdoors, it's on a huge nitro track too going to need some monster gearing

KO Racer, Very nice collection!

Now that I have my Cuda (thanks Civic) I'm going through it with a fine tooth comb and I've come up with a few questions that I think you guys can answer for me:

1. When using the pal drive system are the aluminum driveline supports a must have?

2. On the center support motor mount of said system what side does the flanged part of the bearing go on (towards the front or rear of the car?

3. Is anybody using a ball diff in the front? , what is a Spliff diff?

4. Is anyone using torque rods in the front, what are the advantage, disadvantages of them?

5. And lastly is anyone using the offset rear arm mounts?

Thank you, Deves

1) no they're not a must have if you use the PAL drive system

2)dunno

3)I've used a normal diff upfront, it's very useful when grip is low.
a spliff is a RedBull invention, he posted a description a while back, there may be a description on the AlexRacing USA site, asicly it's a ball diff setup tight and with rubber washers in it to create a half spool half ball diff.

4) I'm sure someone is using them, I don't feel the need for them where I race.

5) I don't have them but they are helpful for setup options.

Thanks for your reply Herminator! now I just need to know about that bearing in the center bearing support. The reason I'm asking is I noticed some scratches on it where the screw ends possibly protrude through the ends of the gear. either the bearing is on backwards or the previous owner was using screws that were a tad too long.
