Right, never thought I'd do this, but it's time to sell my Alex Racing Barracudas. I mean, they named the company after me!!!! Well, maybe not....

This lot consists of two cars, and some extras:

Car 1: The complete car: US$120
This is a complete carbon fibre and alloy touring car, shaft driven, with heaps of new parts thrown at it... and it looks absolutely beautiful! Features include:
- New carbon fibre chassis (upper and lower), and front and rear shock towers
- Carbon prop shaft
- Purple alloy motor mount, gearbox housings, shocks, spur gear mount, antenna mount etc.
- Full bearings
- Alloy wheel hexes
- Universal shafts front and rear
- Rear diff is smooth but not too tight (built for the shelf), front diff seems to be direct / locked
- Tyres are brand new Fantom Racing items, just put on for the photos (unglued)

This can come with a Hitec HS-605BB Servo and a colour-matched Reedy Mach 1 motor (condition unknown), or they can be left out to save weight and US$10.
Car also comes with a battery mount of some sort (not installed), as well as instructions (in Japanese) and a full sheet of decals.


Car 2: The incomplete car: US$60
This is an incomplete carbon fibre and alloy touring car, shaft driven, which was a spares car for the build of the purple one - however, all the alloy is GREEN!! Features of this one include:
- Used carbon fibre chassis (upper and lower), but no shock towers
- Carbon prop shaft
- Green alloy motor mount, gearbox housings, incomplete shocks, spur gear mount.
- Mega-rare alloy rear hubs and alloy front c-hubs, also in green (find those if you can!)
- Front and rear sway bar setups
- Full bearings
- Universal shafts in rear, no drive shafts in front
- No diffs, although there are some diff parts in the parts bag.

This can come with a colour-matched Team OZCharge motor (condition unknown), or it can also be left out to save weight and US$5.

Car also comes with a battery mount of some sort (not installed), as well as heaps of uninstalled parts and some decals.


Item 3: Brand New Carbon Fibre Chassis: US$40
Comet Racing Parts no.6604, this is a brand new 8-cell chassis, which seems the same as the one on the purple car. Price tag of 7800 yen back in the day.... so not a cheap part! Seems to be perfect condition - I've never even had it out of the bag!


All items are located in Australia, so please factor in postage costs - it won't be cheap anywhere in the world due to the weight, unfortunately... although I will help out as best I can.

Please tell me if my prices are way off..... I'm not really sure myself! Will consider all offers and ideas, although not looking at trades at this time.

Happy to sell the whole lot as one bundle for US$185 ono, if that helps getting a sale!!!!
