Default Give me advise brothers.

Guys I need an opinion. Im really close to getting my Cuda but I have Questions for you give me some input. I found a limited edition web special for about $550 from Japan but the car wont come with the Alloy hubs and PAL, but is the Orange virsion and Orange is turning me on for some weird reason. Should I take it or just get onother color and have the extra goodies for about the same price I can hop it up myself. I was also thinking if I break the orange one what the heck am I gonna do for spares I bet theyll be hard to get. Please advise me to make a smart choice.

Your Almost Cuda bro.

Your best bet would be to PM dynoman007, he doesn't post here much, so I'm guessing he doesnt follow the thread. His prices are actually really good...

It's only expensive because you are getting hundreds of dollars worth of hopups...

JFCTech,

Torque steer should be a lot less noticeable on the R2. The TC3 and other cars are trying to get their batteries in extremely close to the shaft to help with the torque steer. The R2 has motor left and batteries close to shaft. To me it seems like best case scenario.............. BTW. I am not an R2 owner nor have NEVEr seen one. So this is a very biased opinion.

Not really a personal preference, but the designer's preference. Maybe R3 will have the batteries on the left side too ala TC3, EVO 3 and SD. They already did it with the Web edition. The Pal version is the same, maybe a sign of things to come. Dave?
