The first two sets of outdrives are shipped out to RCMonk. Thank you for the extrem fast payment. I packed a few extra rings within because I never saw such a fast payment.

I wish there was somewhere to race my cuda nearby... I miss sedan racing.

Hey guys... I'll be running my R2 for the first time tomorrow...question though... It has the 64p spur on it, but I don't own any 64p gears....tons of 48's... question is, will a standard Robinson spur or the like be a direct fit? Or do I need to get a 48p spur from Alex?? Once I find a deal on a set of 64's, I'll change back, but until I get a feel for what my final gearing will be, I'd like to use the pinions I have...

Thanks guys!

I am not sure about Robinson's Spurs, but we tried different brands of spurs 48p or 64p and never had any problems

Thanks DHI... I'm fairly sure that most of the spurs on the market have the same size ID center hole...Unless the spur is a special one for say the XXXS or something... The normal 48 and 64 pitch spurs should all fit... I guess I'll know in a few hours!

Thanks again!

AZ Ron you can use almost any type of standard spur gear on the Cuda. I used Xenon and Robinson gears on my Cuda when I had them.

The biggest 48p spur a barracuda can take is 72, if I am not mistaken. So I suggest for stock and modified racing nos 70, 71 or 72. Then you set the final gearing ratio with a different pinion ey

I'm with DHI. I ran a 72 on mine the first weekend I ran it and then went to the 64 pitch gears.

Default spur

With a little dremeling of the motor mount edges a r3 can take
a 75 (48dp) or a 100(64dp) .

But i'm led to believe a r2 can take these sizes without modification.

Because of the cars internal ratio i like to use 64dp as large as possible i.e 100/64 to keep adjustments as fine as possible

Well, I'm back after spending 12 hours at the track... got 1st in the B, but should have been solid in the A except for my dip$hit driving... 3 years off does amazing things to yor skills!!
I broke several items... 3 delrin outdrives, CF front shock tower, and both right and left steering arms at seperate times... Need to stay off the walls... this is my first time racing carpet, and the first time I've driven in 3 years, so it's going... more work than I'd hoped... got really familiar with the front half of the car replacing the diff halves 3 times!! I'm going to see about my buddy making some 7075 aluminum ones, or perhaps lightened steel?? What do you guys think?

I wound up running 72/25...it's pretty quick, when I got the odd lap in where I actually drove, I turned a few 10.6-10.9 second laps, which would have put me in the first couple of spots in the A could I have done it consistently.

Anyhow, gotta crash...I'm BEAT!!
