Yes you can use the R2 A-arms but if you have the normal R1 chassis you can only use the long span ones and as for the sway bars fron the R2 you can use them in the same way between the shocktowers and the bulkheads ..but in order to use the shocks in that layout you will need to trim a small ammount from the shock towers on the bottom ..just under the mounting holes..becuase the shock caps will rub on them ...and you will also need this part # from Alex racing 6049 this is the shorter upper shock mount bushings about 5 USD I think???

Hope this helps ya`

second set 613secs 1.207v
they also have 30amp numbers so I'm not sure if they've been done at both rates or one is a calculated.
Hermi,

Epic is Trinity's new "sub-company" I believe.

I think ernie created it so he had a true racing line of batts and motors. They are releasing a quad magnet motor just like Reedy's new Kr....Just a D5 with 4 magnets....

This is all hearsay, so if anyone acually has the "skinny", please feel free to correct me...

Thanks for warm welcome.
Great to hear good things from Barracuda camp. R2 really looks like a winner. I can't wait to put my dirty hands on one of those R2s.
It will be really exciting seeing Barracuda racing side by side with TC3s and new Yokomo SDs.

Welcome back!!
Well the R2 is pretty much a revamp of the R1 .. ..they went and fixed all of the Chassis balance weak points sus arm weak points and front one way problems.. also they added a few new goodies like threaded shock bodies and a slightly thicker shock towers and upper deck

Hi Guys,

a little off topic, but EPIC is a new label from Trinity I believe. I'm not sure if it is a new company all together, but it is a part of Trinity one way or another. We've been getting the GP3300 straight from Trinity in both EPIC packaging and normal Trinity packaging. Which ones are better? It depends on the batch, the latest EPIC batches are high voltage, but the batch we received last Friday under the Trinity packaging are just as good So things are a bit confusing at the moment, but they are all coming from the same place right now.

Just noticed the warning sheet included with the cells says they are from the Trinity factory, also mentions a website

www.epicmotorsports.com

same sheet also recommends a peak of 10-20mv per pack seems a little low to me. Pro Trak tests seem to conclude that charging to a 40celcius temperature is more consistant that peak detecting glad I have the best charger there is and yes I included the 35GFX in my conclusions which doesn't have some of the key features of the Pro Trak.

Anyway back to the Cuda...

anyone had any problems with transpoders not recording when placed in the windscreen above the servo? I'm guessing no but just want to be sure before my windscreen starts looking like a cheese grater I have to find a new location after having less than half my laps recorded last night after trying different transponders, it seems aluminium is better at blocking signals than graphite.

Have you noticed the front foam bumper seems to be slightly too big, it touches the front A-arms at the big ball hinges, not a huge problem but still something to watch for.
