You will need a #2 Philips screwdriver
a 2mm Allen wrench
some side cutters or knife for trimming parts from sprues
nut driver for wheels
just the usual stuff.

I THINK it does, but can't be sure as I used my Hudy renches to build the kit. Some dcent wrenches with handles makes life a lot easier. They don't need to be expensive, http://teambluestar.com does a full set for $12.95.

I have the drivetrain built, and shocks done, this thing is really the nicest car I've ever had. Best quality I've ever seen, very glad I made the switch from Yokomo.

Don't forget the all important 2.5mm wrench for the top deck screws.

But all the changes are made on the same platform, so if you get an R2, Web R2, PAL R2, Flap R2... it's all an R2, and you can buy any of the new parts as aftermarket.

what makes you think that?
The R2 has been out for several months now and should be around for a long time, the original R1 was out for a long time before that. There has been a special edition Web version in orange but thats just a highly hopped up R2. The Speedway PAL editions are just variations of the R1 and soon R2 made by a different company, they are a slightly different sppraoch to the Barracuda and run along side the original Barracuda versions life span.
