Yokomo USA should be getting in the "black" SD in a couple of weeks. It's the exact same car but with regular graphite instead of the SSG.

The car is already stiff as a brick, that's why alot of people are taking the center brace off.

Wonder why Tamiya EVO cars started on the right and then ended up on the left?

Wonder why HPI prototype started on the right but production car will be on the left?

Wonder why TC3 has it on the left?

My SSG had a lot of flex actually, I think the black carbon version is much needed. I got much better traction when I stiffened the car up, but can only go so far with the SSG.

I dont think the placement of the battery matters that much. Dave Berger took 2'nd at the Reedy race, and won the KO challenge with a regular R2. If you really want the batts on the left side, get the PAL R2.

JDM_DOHC_SiR can tell ya. Really the R2 doesnt need much upgrading though, I guarantee you'll love the car in stock form, I already do.
