Cuda's need a little TLC on the 16T & 39T gears to make the drive train smooth and spin for a long time...
For starters..... you'll need some 400~600 grit wet dry sand paper and you'll need to spend about 3 hours just removing all of the peaks on the bevel and diff gears and buy doing this you'll be able to tell just by the gear mesh and that there is less noise too!! especially if you have a Motor/shaft mount holder ( which usually makes the drive train noisy )

But with the 400( 320 is what I use less time )
start to remove a liberal ammount of material ...say about 1mm on the 39T Diff gear ....

This should take a whole Sh!t [email protected] of resistance out of the Barracudas' drive train

also a little bearing prep doesn't hurt either

Try this and let me know
BTW my cuda's on aveage can spin for about 10~14 seconds without tires !! but before all of the prep work they only spun for about 5~6 tops

Speedway PAL Barracuda is basically the same car ..it's just a mirror image.. batteys/motor are on the other side of the chassis it comes with a transponder mount/ different upper deck,shock towers,double bearing front oneway,threaded shocks and aluminum front and rear bulkhead shaft mount holders.. and it only comes in 1 color.. Ti~Silver

TLC= Tender Loving Care

As for the gears... not really flat spot them ..more like makeing them less notchy or blocky...

1st try the 16T bevel gear and see how that works.. ..if that makes it a lille bit better then go on the the 39T diff gear

but remember don't remove to much material on the 16T gear..

A Japanese Cuda drive sat down and told me how to do this....but it took him about 1 hour to explain it to me with his broken english and my half a$$ Japanese J/k

Default RC WORLD MAGAZINE

hey guys I was just currious aboutn the rc world magazine. A friend of mine went to japan and brought back a few of these magazines, and I thought they were really cool. I found a web site some time ago and was trying to find a way of getting a subscription sent to the U.S but I havent had any luck with that. Can any one of you tell me of a way to get this magazine in the states. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks

Mark
