"Alex Racing - Represented by Hideo Kitazawa, this might be the big surprise in the ISTC class. Hideo finished second only to Masami but ahead of all the other top drivers at the official warm-up, a very good indication of what he's capable of! The Barracuda chassis has proven itself many times already, especially in Asia. The continuous development of the platform shows that Alex Racing are very serious and it would be really nice to see them getting a reward in form of a good result in Florida."

Hideo.. is a great driver and has all of the skills to pull it off...but all I can hope for is a A main finish for the Cuda

I think i'm going to buy the Pro 4. The car has won lots with Hara, I suspect the car to be good. And I like the aluminum I think the Barracuda is to pricey for me, I would have to get other stuff to make the car run just a little better. I'm getting the Pro 4 for 225 so... Thanks guys for helpin me choose. Any last comments on R3 or Pro4?

I have had both. A Pro4 and now a Cuda. I like them both but for me I like to be different and now run the Cuda. The Pro 4 does need some extra stuff just like the Cuda.

I know that JasonC has a super hopped up R2 Cuda for only 200 bucks on this Site.

Pretty cool pics. Maybe some close ups of their cars would really be cool. Nice to see how they setup their cars and radio installation.
