Had Tamiya only mounted the motor inline for the EVO6 - it would have been a competitive option.

What ever happened to Alex Racing?

I have one gathering dust.

Surely, Steve Wang has a fleet in his shop.

Oh come oh ye faithful 'Cuda lovers.

I hated chasing Wang, Berger and others with those cars back in the day at SoCal. Lethal.

I'm not sure if Alex Racing Design is in the touring car market anymore.. Drift racing in Japan is the hot ticket.

If you remember the barracuda USA website. Simply google "way back machine" and you can go back in internet time and see the USA website dedicated to Alex Racing R2 chassis'.

Really interesting stuff.

The kit for sale is orange やった!

Absolutely made my day....Oh Speed Tech R/C, I do miss those days. Just racing, having fun, making a decent living for a single guy to get by, eat breathe, and dream r/c

Berger, you were the "cuda master" you got that thing working awesome, and was oh so close at RROC...but with what we got in terms of resource, you were brilliant on the track

Still got a orange shelf queen and she is going to stay that way
