Yes, Herminator actually orders all his Barracuda stuff from Speedtech, and he's in UK.

When we ordered our SD's, Steve(speedtech guy) marked down the value of our package so that we would be hit with little or no customs charges. We luckily got hit with none! but i know I guy i used to race with ordered from speedtech a few times and he got hit all the time with charges, I think he got a Pro 3 on special offer from some shop in the US and they hit him with a 90 customs charge! which made it more expensive than buying it in this country.

Thats what most shops do for me when i buy things from overseas, but the customs guys seem to realise this now and are slapping charges on those packages aswell

I've got 2 racedays on it so far, one at SoCal, I qualified last in pro stock, but made some changes, and worked up to 3'rd place. Then at Toys for Tots race, I TQ'd in pro stock with 2'nd 7 seconds behind... Unfortunately the race got rained out, so we havent run the 2'nd qualifier and mains yet.

I have thought about getting a touring car for oval racing "because that is all we have locally" but also some road course in the summer. I'm looking at the yokomo and the TC3. Which will work better for both as well as being easily tuneable? I've not had a lot of experience with touring cars so I need one that is easily tuneable and also durable. Yokomo has interchangeable arms and I like that but Associated seems easier to get parts for. Any suggestions?
Thanks
Rob

If you post this question in the Yokomo thread, the Yokomo guys are going to tell you the SD is best... same if you post it in the TC3 thread with their loyal drivers. Either way you go, you'll get a good car, the batts are on the left side of either, so that cant hurt for oval racing.
