OK I found what was probably my big problem with the car spinning when coming out of corners.
It seems one of the diff plates managed to move and deform the delrin it turned about 20degrees and has pushed up two lumps at each of the flat sections in the delrin which must have been rubbing on the diff gear, causing it to bind a little. Just enough to make it like it's occasionaly had rear wheel drive.
What a pain, I have no spare diff halfs. I'm going to have to stick to a one way in the front and put my extra diff in the rear. I've trimmed the lumps off and I'm glueing the plate one, just so I have an emergancy diff, should work since the Lab diffs don't have the flat sections to hold the plates it just uses glue. Good to know my setup can't have been that bad, nor my driving....
Now do I wait until I need a load of bits or do I order one part to get shipped internationaly

SOrry bro that mount is for the R1 and not the R2...

Johnbull - I think you should try ordering an R2 from Speedtech, just to see how you like it. It seems like the Barracuda is starting to get known more out here, and definately proving itself with winning the KO race, and 2'nd place at Reedy at my home track, SoCal Raceway. It seems to be the car to have for stock racing, so since you run stock, it seems to add up just about right

Awesome Dave, good luck at the races... sucks that there's a 16 hour time difference between us, but I'll be able to change my sig in the morning. I'm so anxious to get this car, I'm a kid in a candy store right now
