They Sure will

Well I've gotten round to rebuilding the cuda, the spur gear is now on the side closest to the motor, it's tightened just enough and a little thread lock was used, it still seems to wobble slightly though, seems the alloy shaft holders will be higher on my list than I thought and the center holder/motor mount. Although I still think it will be more than a close fit with the screws holding the spur gear, they should have made the extra bit sit level with the rest of the motor mount.

Steve do you stock those extra quiet spur gears you were on about? since they're thicker they sound like a good idea.

Hi Hermi'

On the R2 if the the PAL motor mount/shaft holder was not offset like it is..... it would hit the Batterys!!


Unlike the R1 where the mount was not off set ...it waas just straight ..... But the screws that hold the Spur on mount from the back (side by the Diff)

No worry's my friend

if the screws are on the side of the diff how do they hold on the spur? since it's on the othre side of the threaded flanges on the drive shaft. I see what you mean about clearing the cells though. There will probably be enough clearance for the screw heads if I use some button head titanium screws like those I use on my Lab.

back to the painting I go, lovely fumes

ok, there you have the whole spur on the side closest to the diff, I had it like that on Monday and the pinion was strugling to reach the spur, probably causing some of the problem of stripping the spur.

I'm pretty sure that the R1 will allow you to mount the spur like that but on the R2 the pinion will barely reach the spur unless you move it to the edge of the motor pinion mount.

Sure there ....


Here you go you will need the following Alex Part #s

1)6604 lower chassis
2)6630 Spur gear adaptor
3)6710 Long Span A-arms x2
4)6733 Sway bar set x2 ( use these to space the shock towers)

Also.. you can use the normal upper deck... it just has to be trimmed down with a dremel about 2mm where the spur gear mounts

One you all "get" the Mount/holder you will see that it will allow you to mount the Spur about dead center between the Chassis opening on the Bottom of the chassis..
