2fast4u2,

We won't have a complete English instruction, but an English supplement is included with all the kits that are sold in the US. We will also have it online for you guys to down load.

When I had my TC3...I really didn't like the steering rack...it would sometimes bind...even when bearings are in place. The NTC3 steering rack is a little smoother....

By the way, the guy standing next to David on the front page is the owner of FLAP RC Parts (Mr. Noboru), we will soon be carrying FLAP RC Parts for the Barracuda R2

Very nice shell Steve, I'd love one like that, maybe with a few flashes of flourescent red or green, long the edges of the chrome perhaps

I like my steering as it is, very little slop at all

Thats a sweet car KO, lots of mods. The folks that race TC3's here wish they didn't have that rack type steering, lots of complaints about it. Is that your car ? Your Carbon tweek plate

btw Mr. Noboru is quite the guru on the CUDA, he really helped me with the setup during the triple A-Mains at Reedy.

Isn't it cool how these little cars can bring so many people together from so many diffrerent far away places

I Have that Flap TC-3 style steering system on my PAL Cuda'.... The Akerman is a tad bit different than the stock lay out.. also you will need to use the newer style steering knuckles when you use this style stereing because the steering rate is noticeably different with the tie rod on the out most position

-Dave..


BTW Pro Shop Futaba sells a TC-3 Conversion kit for the Barracuda so you can also use there system also..it's 2200 Yen for the convertor and you'll need the TC-3 Rack and bearings..

Joseph.... you do know that the the arm braces are for the older style R1 arms' ...I thought that you had the PAL Short span system arms on the PAL Cuda'??
and with that new FLAP Chassis... you'll need to use the R2 arms I belive
