Dave, I just noticed that the Kai Models conversion for the Cuda has a opposite layout of the original Cuda. Is there any difference in handling for the different layout? Get what I mean?

Like normal cuda has the batts on the driver side [japan cars] and the kai cuda has the batts on the passenger side...

How much stiffer (foward to back & side to side) is the Kai chassis compared to the stock Alex chassis? Is it any thicker?

The Kai Chassis is about 0.2mm thinker than and more balanced than the normal Barracuda chassis ..and yes it is a tad bit stiffer
