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
Nope thats a ALEX Verrosa Body but if you look on another thread I did post the pic of the Vectra

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

Basically Xenon has the 4 new ones
Midori or Green Dot Laydown 3mm core 3port Rotor with 9mm comm and laydown brushes..more of a torque based motor.? kind of a weird one..
AKA or red Dot Laydown 3mm core 3port Rotor with 9mm comm and laydown brushes..more of a torque/rpm based motor.?
Ao or Blue Dot Standup 3mm core 3port Rotor with 9mm comm and standup brushes..more of a torque based motor but more efficent on amp draw.?
Kin or Gold Dot Standup 3mm core 3port Rotor with 7.5mm comm and standup brushes..more of a Hi torque based motor... my personnal favorite

The Cuda has always tended to be louder than other tourers but you can do some things to quieten it down.
Shim the diffs more to one side to make the mesh looser.
Shim the small bevel gears so they have no back and forth movement in the shaft holders.
New gears run in with a slow motor on a few volts.
Remove the diff covers, they make a noisey car sound like a tractor.

I run without the gear covers all the time and stones are not a big problem. I get the occasional tiny stone stuck in gear teeth but a quick look to see where it is then flick it out with a screw driver and everything is fine. You just end up with a few chewed up gears, but the Cuda gears are beefy enough to run fine with a few chunks out of them. I've had stones in gears even when running the covers and then it's a pain in the backside to get to the problem, you're not even sure if it's the front or rear so end up dismantling half the car

Shimming the diffs is a bit of an art I find, a big part of making things quiet. One shim too few and it may seem like there is minimal play but it will still be noisey. One shim too many and it will have no play but still spin fairly freely (not as free as it should be though) and it will again be noisey. So you need to take the bulkheads off and on a few times and use trial and error.

Maybe Dave will be nice and find the pic he had of the small bevel gears, showing the differeces that meant different shimming for each and he can tell us the thickness of shims he uses for each while he's at it
I tend to guestimate these at the moment, since taking them apart without damage is a pain, when they're in the shaft holders they stay there until they're deformed and ready for the bin
(oddly though I have a nice little collection of used bevel gears, I don't know why I keep so many "emergency backup" spares it's the same with spurs and stripped thread steering knuckles )
