Coleko, Good to meet you today, nice to put a face to a name.
Your car looked good out there today. I'm gonna pick up some of those mid span arms this week when I go see Steve.
What color red was that on your car it looks sweet! Is it from a can or do you use an airbrush?

Same here glad to meet you. Good to see another cuda out there. I was pretty amazed on how well the mid span arms worked at todays layout. Kinda wish a had them on the past races. Im want to try and make my own front braces like your car has to get rid of the play in the front knuckle. As for paint it did come from cans. To make the red I used Tamiya Frost Red,Tamiya Bright Silver and backed it with white.

Hi there,

Lastst report from the Danish TC 4'th run..

No less than 4 Cuda's started in the Stock class.
Unfortunaly only 1 made it to the A-Finals but we did get a Cuda winner in the B-Final.
We should also have had a second place in the B-final but I forgot my head for the 3 run and drove like a 6 year old on speed

The cars held up nicely in the 30+ deg. hot day and all cars came throug without failure.

The "funny" thing was that we all had very different setup's for the cars.. but that just shows that the car has to adapt to the drivers style

Yup, could see it pretty well, just had to look for the nicest looking shell out there The rip pattern is nicer than a lot of the other plainer schemes around, very eye catching.
I was glad it was at Carlisle, there's nothing really to hit, you just run onto grass and get the chassis covered in cuttings
I'll have to start doing my own shells soon, maybe try copying the Alfa, or atleast the pattern, with slightly different colours.
I spent plenty of time mounting the shell so the wheel arches are nice and small but here's a tip, don't glue tyres minutes before your final while the shell is on, I was on my way to pick up the transponder and trying to pull the rear wheel arch off the tyre didn't take up much paint thankfully.

My Cuda was down to a more normal noise level yesterday, got the diffs shimmed so they were free spinning but not moving side to side. Pushed away from the small bevel gears within reason. Had to replace one small bevel gear and shimmed it by putting one bearing on the gear then the shim so the shim sat inside the alloy shaft holder. The other was left as I'd done it before, the shim on first but when it comes time to replace it I may go for the middle option. It was the quietest I've had the car in a long time, I could hear my motor screaming like a mod often does at the end of the straight

Have you guys ever tried and managed to remove the colour from any anodized alum parts?

Isn't this a vectra you've painted already?

The grill is nice but I'm not sure about the triangular headlights, I prefer something atleast close to the original shape on any shell. Half the time it's the only way you can tell what car it's meant to be

Apparently over cleaner works, wouldn't want to try it myself.
What are you trying to do it for?

Xenon makes 4 different types of new 23T stock motors ...

- High Torque - Standup Hoods
- High Revs - Standup Hoods
- High Torque - Laydown Hoods
- High Revs - Laydown Hoods

For the moment they are with bushes, however the ones with the bearings should be coming out soon ...

Dave maybe can give you more technical data
