from what I was told they still have a few machineing things left [email protected] .....it will be released after the All Japan Touring Chapionships at the end of August..

BUt now that you all have sen the Xenon version...and now the PAL version...can you see the similarities...(how the companies are linked) ...

anywasy...exspect 30000 Yen price tag on that along with the Xenon kit as a retail price...

both vesions will have there own unique special differance.. also you are looking at the A type in the pic..there is a B and C type also being made...

Well some of us are likely to be a bit biased towards the Barracuda R2, it depends on what you want. The Barracuda has been around a while and is proven as a good car, has lots of options for spec too. The Pro4 on the other hand has a much bigger company behind it and eventually you'll be able to find lots of setup tips from top drivers. The Pro 4 may have some serious problems though, we just don't know.

he just nicked the pics from the Speedway PAL website

So is this going to be another conversion kit or are they going to have a whole kit for sale? thought you said Speedway PAL weren't going to release their version, they were backing Excel instead

I'm getting confused again with all these prices, please list all the companies versions with guestimated prices for my tired and overheated brain (the UK had it's hotest ever recorded temperatures a couple days ago going through a big heatwave)

I take it the A, B, C type kits are just different levels of hopups, like alloy hubs, etc. ?

Pal was only going to relese there chassis 3mm...and they will soonhehehe

as far as the "FULL" conversion the Excel verion will be the only Kit that is sold.......as far as I know

as far as the A ,B and C they will be different chassis layouts and brace configure ations...from what I know...but stand by for changes

OMG! they really are trying to confuse me, wish they'd do more of their website in english too, not like I can check the spec of these things myself.

HEHE, Dave you're going to be in trouble with the missus if you keep up your current trend of having one of every cuda available
you'll need a whole room to store them

You'd probably be best to buy a whole kit and the conversion, then you can sell and parts you don't want or you can have lots of spares.

Dave- you've needed to fix the link in your sig to Excel for ages, it links to part of the banner, just delete all the adress after the .jp
