hi guys... i would just like to get your opinion:

is there a difference in the handling between the pal version kit (batts on the left side) versus the ordinary R2 version kit (batts on the right side)

also if i order the pal kit, aside from the position of the body and the pal drive system, is there other differences?

There are some big differences between the PAL kit and the Barracuda R2 kit, take a look at the pictures JDM posted in the last couple of pages in one of these cuda threads.
Dave will be able to tell you the most about the PAL kit, you pay for the differences

that is a question that you will get many different answers on. it really depends on you the driver what you want and are use too. and the type track you run etc..... here is a photo of mine the pal car on the right and R2 on the left

1. arms of the PAL kit.
2. top deck
3. chasiss shape
4. front camber link position
5. looks like the front shock tower is angled

The shock towers on the PAL kit also look like they are both closer to the center of the car. What are the handling charistics bonuses of either car?

the PAL shock towers are a little bit different than the normal Barracuda ones...they are about 1.5mm shorter...

But but I love my PAL cuda the best ..it`s on rails

Hmm, does PAL still have their version in production?

Think the web edition is going to stick with it?
