Default Barracuda conversions

Hey guys some of you had said that if you get an R2 with a stage2 Xenon conversion that it would probebly be better than an r3 right? What I want to know is what is the difference between that conversion and the speedwaypal conversion exept for the price?

The differences are the cells are on the opposite side, the rear of the Speedwway PAL version has extra stiffening, the main chassis has a few extra cut outs and it's made from a non shiney graphite. The Speedway PAL version was also a limited production.
