The R is for ROAR i'm guessing? The battery tray is complies with ROAR rules on battery size. The HB car is very balanced and handles like a D8.

The plate from the front bulkhead to the steering posts and that rear body mount are both cool parts - I could see those making their way to my various D8 based cars...
