Here are the pics of the diff outdrives. Sorry, that it took so much time but I had too much to do.

And here is my new damper stay. It is 10mm wider then the stock one. I can use the outest holes now.
This stay is handmade but I will make a new one on a CNC next year.

Thanks. Unfortunately the pics are not so good. I will try to anodize them. Either red or silver.

Is someone selling those outdrives or it was just made one-off?

I have made the outdrives just for myself. And now I will make 2 pairs for a guy who asked me for them. Thatīs no problem because the programm for the CNC still exists.

Same here.. looks interesting....

I wonder what grade of alloy is being used... 7075 T6 would be very nice....5051 would also work..but I think that the 7 series alloy would be the best

Looks like you could sell a few pairs for the Cuda. I think almost everyone with a Cuda would like a set of those outdrives.

I could make some outdrives but first I had to talk to the guy who made them for me. The more outdrives he makes the cheaper it will be for one.
I canīt tell you how much it will cost now. Iīve to pay the material and the hours on the machine.

Edit: My two prototypes work very well. Just one problem: I canīt use the old diff washers. I made 60 diff washers out of a great material. My first pair work for around 40 runs. And the diff runs still smooth.

It looks like it is holding up pretty well after 40 runs too

Hey Dave, How hard would it be to fit R2/3 swaybars on the MS, are they at all close to fitting?
