the Evo III has them on the left, while the Cuda's have them on the right.

any help will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Racer ..do a look about 3~4 pages back I did a big post on all the questions that you just asked

I'd like the savings of 19T but it's not really a saving if I need different motors for club racing and championship racing. Think I'll have to find a good 12T for all my racing and get a friendly racer to skim it every week, last summer I tried to get away with a cheaper 12T hand wound, was probably closer to a 13T and not a fast one at that. For stock racing I think it will do great.

Argh, I want one more and more. Looks like the Lab will become a rain car

Your going to love this car ...don't worry

Argh, I hope I can find other things to sell before my soul

I think you need to add a line to your sig JDM, Cuda Pimp!

I think the cuda will cause some major interest in Scotland, had people asking what the Lab was at the recent Scottish GP even though a driver won last years outdoor scottish championship with one. I think Speedtech should get the pink version in

sorry, JDM_DOHC_SiR

i don't notice anything much besides that the arms are shorter on the Pal Cuda version than the Alex Cuda.

Speedtech,

Thought I saw you at the State champs. I wish I could have gotten a look at the Cuda but all I saw was a lot of cold weather. Your Tamiya was nice and I was suprised at how many TBIII's and M2's there were at the track. I run a FTTC3 and am a little shy to go jumping to another SD car with all the success I have had but just the pics give me the itch to try. Keep the info coming.

Hi Guys,

I just got an email this morning that the Barracuda R2 will be arriving earlier than expected. We might have the kit in the states 1 week ahead of schedule

I'll keep you all posted.

highx,

Next time you see me, you are more than welcome to come up and say hi. I'm always glad to meet new racers around different areas. I did have the barracuda with me, and a lot of people came up to check out the car. Even though it was broken, the first thing everyone said is always "Sweet!" or "That's a nice car!" Too bad bone-head me broke it during practice!

TC3,

What I should put in is kick-up and not caster, but I think there will also be caster blocks of different degree available.

bigd,

Thanks for the offer. Wow, that will be a far drive from the east coast to reedy. But if you do make it, look for a small group of guys in Alex Racing T-shirts, that will be us I have a small team put together for the reedy race, and we hope to make a good showing at the race.
