I posted a pick of my car a couple pages back, we use schumacher mini pins, they get through the layer of dust found on wooden floors and give some grip. It's not great grip but racing is fun with a little bit of a challenge

they are selling the Red for so cheap because the Japanese don`t like that color very much for the barracuda ( I think that it`s a rather nice color ..)

but you might want to double check to make sure that thats a R2 and not a type"O" because they were closeing out the R1 for that price for the R1`s last month..

JDM_DOHC_SiR,

i've checked the part number on R10 and Alex's web page and it seems to be an R2.

did the R1, go by the same part number as well?

I personally liked the red but Steve didn't get any in when I ordered mine. I should have got the purple but got the blue I'm trying to line up and get mine anodized green if I can...As far as parts I ordered, I got the Xenon upgrade, Square blue aluminum c-hubs, rear hubs and knuckles, Ti screw kit, mid span arms, new 4 bearing one way, sway bars, and a "S" chevron body . Need some Xenon decals, know where I can get some? Also, wonder what an aqua or turquois anodizing would look like? well, I rambled enough...

Yep, I got one last night. It is $180 + shipping. I was going to get a Rayspeed conversion kit but for $30 more, I got a red R2. Good deal me thinks.

You got a great deal on the Red R2... You'll definately like more than your SD...
After Running my R2 Web... I quickly sold my SD.

I can sure say that it is, the SD didn't do anything for me, Yokomo needs to beef those parts up IMO.
