Steve you need a full time employee/test driver? or maybe just a ful time coffee maker

The cuda is fairly easy to work on but getting the diffs out is easier on other cars, due to the dual bulkheads on the cuda and the way they are connected to so many things. It also makes it very important to build it straight but it also means the car is light, the diffs are held in a way that they don't get "pinched" like some other cars. Plus you have nice alloy instead of ugly plastic bulky things covering the diffs

Definately, I should have it all finished in a week or so. Just gotta work on a couple motors and put some oil in the XXX-S shocks, so I'll be ready for next Tuesday.

Just wait till you run that chassis... It's Like having a $h!t loads of steering with it.. and if you need set up help ...I have a few set ups that work well with a 7 turn also you will find that you might want to run on the Stiffer side of the 1.4 springs if you are running Mod... 5.5 in the rear and 5.25 front.. with 35 W all around ..and a .5mm shim under the front A-arm balls
