In on My PAL Barracuda Im now using Ceramic bearings and I have notice a slight improvement in free spin... ..but for the price that I paid for them.. I think that the Stock ones work just fine with a little prep work!!

BTW 19800 Yen

I bought my PAL Barracuda off of a guy from this board... but he is no longer around

but in Japan they are very easy to come buy.. but the retal price is about 51000 Yen kind of $$$$ but the new R2 Barracuda is much cheaper and retails for about 39800 Yen and has a more balanced chassis
