Default 2 Speed Electric Touring Car

I'm into nitro cars and would like to try electric sometime, just wondering if there's an electric touring car that has 2 speed?
I saw in some japanese magazines the car baracuda that has 2 speed on it, not sure though. Please give some ideas on this. Thank you.

You can get a 2spd for the HPI cars. Pro, Pro2, and the Sport if i remember correctly. Each drive-train was essentially the same anyways.

2spd's are not common in electric cars. The shift point changes too much as the motor gets warm, the motor g\starts to wear, and the shift point changes depending on how much battery voltage ( punch ) you have.

As for the R2 Barracuda 2 speed .....it's mainly geared towards 23T stock motors that are geared in the 4.95~5.95 range... if you need more info please PM me
