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?
