We will also introduce some of the Alex Racing staff members that I met on this strip on the Alex Racing USA website

Can't wait to see what goodies you have for use Steve to make us go broke. Looks like I will have to get one of those new R3.

It's a one of a kind proto that the designer has no intentions of producing. Would be nice though.

It's an accually molded carbon fiber tub chassis. Very expensive to make.

Did anyone try the new 3 deg caster blocks of the Barracuda? Comments ... Are you guys all opting for the standard alex racing front hubs or most of you using the xenon aluminium ones?

Just came back from the Shizouka show in Japan and I also had the opportunity to visit both Alex Racing Factory and Xenon Racing factory. I will post some pictures when I recover from the 9 1/2 hour plane ride and also share some new product information (which is already featured in the June issue of R/C Magazine)

Steve Wang
that would be great..


Barracuda shocks:
i only use one silicone o-ring in the lower shock-cap
the 2nd o-ring is replaced by a spacer. now the shocks work very smooth. the only disadvantage is, that they don't come with bladder caps.
but i also thought about switching to tamiya shocks

Steve- Please save me a set!

Wow- I didn't know you were going to Shizouka!! Awesome! I guess they pack a lot into that little convention center. When I went, Tamiya had no problem filling it up with their stuff. Then again thay had a carpet track hogging up the floor.
Rainbow Ten has nothing on Speedtech!!

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

What is the standard Cuda R2 and R3 caster normally at that everyone is looking for 3 degree blocks? Don't have a Cuda so I don't know the stock caster.
