Oh, I see he's in HK.

How's your kai chassis working out for you?
Big improvement over stock chassis?

I noticed in their website that kai chassis for barracuda is to be released in May.

According to the website.
The car shown below is
Barracuda PAL version with Kai upper deck.

The shocks are from TRF. I don't know which car.

Most of chassis parts are either from PAL or Alex racing design except for the upper deck and some other parts by K models racing factory.

Barracuda PAL version is being sold but Kai upper deck is scheduled to be released in Japan in May.

Since this car is relatively young, I doubt if many are racing it.

If you're, SPEAK UP !!!

I plan to race original version so I would really appreciate any setup tips.

Thank you.

Original Barracuda purple version by Alex racing design.

It doesn't use steering rack type steering system. I believe you need Kai upgrade. Also batteries are on the right side.

man, maybe it's just me, but i would never run a shaft drive car that doesn't have sealed diffs. at least not on asphalt. i know my spur gets killed in a few weeks. of course we don't do much prep. i dunno.
