No, it's just a special we are running. Last year's Reedy race was the Alex Racing Barracuda's first major race debute

The sparkle chassis version will still be available, a non-sparkle chassis version will be offered in the future as well.

let me guess...
saddle pack configuration for cells? three where the servo and esc sit and three at the rear right. With the servo on the front right.

So have you been doing much racing yet Dave? what's your main car for the moment?

Nope not quite that layout ..but they do have a car here in Japan that has a saddle layout with shaft drive ...anyways the things that will be changed will be moving stuff forward about 3mm on the battery and 2~3mm on the servo along with a few other trick things ..
Main car for me right on now..? hmmmm Pro4 then my R2...after the R3 is done then its lots of track time ...I have a bunch of new toys that I have to play with when I get back from vaccation

lucky for some
I have to try and keep my one toy going
recently noticed that now it needs new ball cups for the top links, they're getting suprisingly sloppy all of a sudden.
Small things I know but add them to the expensive list of atleast one diff and some cvd's and it's getting depressing might of well have bought the second hand cuda that was on here and used it for spares the bearings would of been handy too.

The ATALS Silver sprins are very nice and so are the Yokomo double shunts for there 23T motors Stay away from the ECHO and Kawada Brushes the Mirage one are good for about 4-5 packs and they are done

If you really don't need them, then sure, chuck my way although not literaly though... I don't think you'd reach and if you did, it may hurt

Hope you're having a good time on your holiday

I'm trying to decide how much prep to do for Sunday's big race. Do I keep the car as it is, just do motor prep, knowing the car should hold together well, or do I do a big rebuild and clean the whole car out. Which often means something comes loose on race day but can also mean I spot a potential problem.

steel universals are very handy, don't bother with diff parts, I know you'll need them at some point. I'm sure I can afford some ballcups myself

Hopefully I'll be alright for shells soon too..... and nice paint jobs will be easir for me to do.... I wonder when though
