In my country noone races with this car and I will be very interested to buy one if it is really competitive
It can compete with all of the cars you listed, and anything else thrown at it, this isn't a toy car...

No shell yet Dave

Must be one hellish job to be that busy, hope you get atleast some enjoyment out of it. Good luck at the big race

McLaren the Barracuda can easily compete with those cars, in some cases it's better quality, in most cases it's an awful lot stronger, it's just as fast and more efficient than most. It's already done well at events like the Reedy race in America, some big Japanese events and at the club level, well lets just say my Cuda is easily as fast as any other car there

That would be Triox, a german company, they have it renamed as the Triox X-Plosion though and the cells are on the left instead of the right hand side of the chassis. They have the sole distribution rights for the whole of Europe.

It is the car to have! The R2 or R3 can beat any of those cars you listed with the R2 in stock form, and I have all the cuda nuts in this thread to back me up with my statement to prove it but from a shop owner's point of view, the car is too tough, it hardly breaks. You won;t be selling that much replacement parts exept for bevel gears, front oneway gear, rear diff gears, silicone o-rings for the shock rebuild (other brands don't fit except for the cuda brand), shims for the bearings in the bulkheads (they tend to thin up after long use). Basically thats it. Although your customers will be all smiles when they drive the cuda. Guaranteed. Super performance right out of the box!
Good choice to carry in your shop
