Just curious, how much do those PAL systems for the barracuda go for (in US$)? a price range would be great. i hear they are basically a must when running hot mod motors.

ROBORAT: I think they retail for U.S.$82.50 at Speedtech but they are always out of stock. I'll be having them soon together with the kits. I can't sell the R2 kits without the PAL System in stock because most of the guys in Manila like to go Mod all the time and that includes you, hehehehe

JDM_DOHC_SiR: Hi, where did you get your battery mount posts and plate? Did that come with the chassis or you can buy it separately? If so, what is the make? Thanks I'm kinda getting tired of strapping tape for the batteries specially when the track is dusty. I need to keep on changing them.

the posts are maid by the owner of speed way pal as a small favor.. and the battery strap is kind of a prototype thing that my friend was doing a while back...

I think his battery posts are from a Yokomo, handy if you have a blue car. I've got some RC Lab posts which meant I had to drill the holes in the alloy strap to 4mm and now the posts slot nicely through and I then use a body clip to secure it.

Well I'm back from my local clubs night of racing, when we laying out the track we had a shower of rain so we waited a bit for it to stop then finished laying the track. Not many people turned out, for some reason it was the 8 fastest regulars so atleast we had asome competitive racing. We ran two heats of four, I was in the slower heat and went out first. So on the wet track I went out on my D20 treaded tyres and they were working fairly well.
Set a decent FTD and lapped everyone in my heat, most of them I lapped twice
The track was drying and the second heat had two drivers that managed to beat my time.
My second run and the track was drier again and I managed to get a new FTD, helped by using my decent cells.
I lost FTD again to one person only this time, the other fast guy had problems with a deans plug desoldering itself.
Final run and was back to bad cells but going well on an almost fully dry track, still using D20's though for the wet patches, I wasn't quite on the new FTD pace and then I had to pull out with lack of steering, the servo horn had half unscrewed itself.
No new FTD was set by the guys running next, although two guys were going better and set times 0.05 seconds apart, they ended up about 1.5 seconds behind my best time.
We ran two finals so I lined up second and had changed tyres to CS22's as the track was basicly dry, probably my best qualifying position at the club whilst all the fast guys have been there. Start of the race was fairly clean and I kept second, staying with the leader reasonably close, not bad since he had a 12turn in, although the track is not large enough for a 12turn to really get going, there is a tiny advantage. I got very close after we'd done a few laps and almost passed him, I think that woke him up a bit and for the rest of the race he slowly pulled away, the guys behind me had a few spins and so were nothing to trouble me. The gap to first place was kinda stationary as he started to come across the slower two guys I then started to catch up a little, by the end I was about 7 seconds behind, not sure since both our cars were too quick to cross the line the first time and it confused the computer
I'm pretty happy with the result, my best against the better drivers and they didn't have too many problems. The car fealt good with no changes since Carlisle, even though the one way wasn't ideal for wet conditions. I may be down a bit on power but the Cuda seems to be great at carrying corner speed, and it's forgiving to drive too.

no no no it's nothing like that Hermi

I just saw them at his shop in the back ...and I asked him what they were for and he said that they were trash ...so he gave them to me..

also take a look at the PAL Barracuda Pics that I just posted....they are actually a post vice the Yokomo Transponder mounts that I use on my Blue R2 that use screws to hold down the Battery Post.....

sounds good to you...

Hmm My Lightest Cuda..??
It would have to be my PAL Barracuda .. it comes in at 1465 grams with body/electronics and Panasonic 3000 UMHs also it is the stiffest chassis with the Kai Chassis upgrade..
But My R1 with EXCEL Chassis has to be the best balanced Cuda...that I have... Very fun to drive...
