You got a picture of that?
It is the TB01 Race, it comes with a Aluminium Prop shaft and Plastic Ringgears/Bevel pinion gears instead of Metal ones + NSX 2000 Body.

I have hopuped it with:
Ballbearings.
Carbon chassis.
Alu motormount
Alu racing steering set.
Long suspension arm set.
TA03 lowfriction Damper set.

It almost looks like a TB-EVO now.

Cole Trickle,

I don't know of any European distributor of the car, but we have no problem shipping to Europe. We have a lot of customers over there

Steve,

Please do me a favor and throw a set of foam tires on the Barracuda and tell me if there are interference problems. Thats one annoyng thing about all of the Japanese and Euro Sedans-none are designed with foam tires in mind. It boggles my mind that no engineer for these top companies can buy a set of TRC or Jaco foams and pop them on while designing the hubs and suspension arms!!! Venting-sorry,
Ray

Default Cuda, Yoke, EVO, how much do they cost?

To much, if you ask me. Why pay $300 plus for a car, when you can get one for $150, and it has you everthing you need to race. There is a sucker born every day.

A Tamiya HOTSHOT doesn't count

Oh yea and I'm sure that 150$ is retail price too and "THAT CAR" wouldn't need any additional parts to Make it a "RACE CAR"....

anyways to each there own.. ...Not everyone will like the same car or have the same preferance..
