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.

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