That is definately a Yokomo SD motor mount... Have you seen that car run, or better yet driven it by any chance? Wondering how it performs compared to stock, or FLAP.

Also, the last pic shows how the motor mount connects to the upper deck, I'm sure that will provide a much stiffer back end for the car... Nice!

Me Likey

hmmm...... Limited Edition Xenon kit, I might have to get that as my second cuda

Please tell me more you can PM details to me if you don't want to tell the rest of these nutters :P
Atleast tell me what colours it will come in, better not be blue, it's too dull, and green is just distgusting

I love that easy to access spur gear, saves a huge amount of time.

Yes I'm alive, at the parents, been stripping wall paper all day stupid old stuff thats as thick as cardboard and I'm using a steamer on one of the hottest days of the summer I was starting to strip off myself not a pretty site

Dave you have got to stop breaking your Cuda's, this really is getting beyond a joke You've broken more in the last two weeks than the rest of us have since the thread began Have you considered a shell covered in two inches of foam or just to make it look like a joke, cover one in fur and add a couple ears like the dog van from Dumb and Dumber

Not a bad idea..... but as far as the drive shaft breaking...it wasn`t driver induced ... ..I had a little to much torque with the new 7x2 Reedy Krypton the car didn`t make it out for the 1st corner ..and snap.... So PAL is replacing it for Free...since 2 of ALEX Racings drivers were there last night at my local track and they saw what happened ( lucky for me ) anyways they told me that the PAL shaft is only recomened for 12 turn motors and up.... if you want to run a hotter motor than that use the alloy shaft..

Oh I forgot one pic` here is the Barracuda that you see on PAL`s site... this Barracuda now holds the track record for the fasteset lap!!!!!! buy a huge margin

You are very close...

but the EXCEL kit will have the EXCEL DRIVE SYSTEM...PAL Short arm conversion with the EXCEL HUBS....and a Special R2 lower chassis .. I can`t wait...oh yea the List price...will be about 58000 Yen!!!!!!! ..

so if you have deep pockets..this might be your ticket for a fully hopped up R2 with every hop up item available..
