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
thank you Deves
1) yes about everyone i know uses them
2)im not real sure becuase i havent got my motor mount yet and dont want to tell you wrong but im thinking to the rear dont hold me to that
3) yes i have used a ball diff, and a spool . spliff diff is a 1/2&1/2
4) rods some use them and some dont I my self dont use them.
5) helps with differnt set ups as Herm mentioned


here is you a picture of some torque rods

Thanks KO, I guess I should've taken the motor mount bearing out BEFORE I asked a stupid question......There is no flange on the bearing...

OK here's a good question, What is the drive ratio of this car. It might help to determine which gears to use with different motors.

you might have more success if you divide the two rather than multiply

and if you really want it precise it's 2.4375
