Rayspeed Shock Diaphragms- tired them today in a local race on my R2 shocks. Made a difference in handling. The car seemed to be more stable and consistent in corners, very well planted. Thanks to Redbullfixx for the tip.

Default Barracuda R2 - Speedway Pal version

JDM_DOHC_SiR: Hi, I would like to ask the specs of the R2 Speedway Pal version. I got a product list from them and the Speedway pal version is around Yen51,000.00 I just wanted to know on what side of the chassis are the batteries located at, left or right side? What are your thoughts on the R2 pal version? Handling? Any info will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your time

Should I take it or just get onother color and have the extra goodies for about the same price I can hop it up myself. I was also thinking if I break the orange one what the heck am I gonna do for spares I bet theyll be hard to get. Please advise me to make a smart choice.

Your Almost Cuda bro.

Get the PAL conversion, and if you really like the orange, get it anodized.

I dont know as much as Dave, but I just talked with him, and he explained what he knew about them. The Type A chassis will have the batteries mounted like the Web Special. That is all we know for sure, but the Type B will propably have them on the other side, and the Type C will most likely be the Xenon conversion.

The conversion isn't out yet, so nobody on here has track experience with it, but it should be a very stiff car, good for high bite tracks from what I've seen in the pics.

if you buy the RaySpeed ones get the Reds and whites they seem to be the best for the cuda...with mid or long span arms...
if you get the Hpi ones get the pinks or light blue ones..
-Dave

dave ........ do you like one over the other? and have you used the rayspeed springs on your speedway pal? so if a person goes with rayspeed you say red (soft) white(hard) and that should take care of it for the cuda? have you tried there bladders ?

thanks for the info you have a PM also
