where can you get the blades at??
Most places I've looked say early Dec or even as late a Feb. Speedtech looked like they were not available. PrecisionRC looks like they have them now, guess I would email them to make sure. As lawtonlosi mentioned RC Champs might be a good try.

well i actually got my first race with this new chassis. after setting my ride height and my droop right, the car ran good. i had to loosen the rear ball diff. because it was too tight. it never loosend on me nor did i break pulleys. i did manage to break a C-hub on the last lap of the b-main. outside of that with the jaco dbl pink/orange and dbl pinks in the rear the car rode like it was on rails.

Unfortunately if you are running the original plastic C-Hubs which came with the kit, they are pretty ordinary. When you get some replacements replace the other C-Hub and maybe keep it as an absolute emergency spare as they seem to be pretty fragile

i figured, im not the best driver in the world, and i did smack a few walls and some sandbags pretty hard. so i think im gonna upgrade to aluminum c hubs, then knuckles and then rear uprights, and then ill keep stock of front and rear lower arms, fr and rr mounts and toe blocks, and pins.

Jet racing seem to make a few odds and ends for the cyclone.

Also keep in mind that the knuckles and rear hub carriers are the same on the Pro 4, so you can get those jet racing parts.

kwellst, Incase you didnt see my earlier post....

Do not get the 3 racing bulkheads or motor mount. I should have genuine hotbodies parts soon to compare them with but so far ive found they are incompatible with other hotbodies parts.

The 3racing forum has so far been of no help, funnily enough, i guess they dont want to admit that their parts are the wrong size (but they will have to sooner or later)

Now that is whoa! I had a funny feeling about 3racing parts for the Cyclone when I read their ad (bad translations in advertising make me nervous ). The fact that you spent a few coins and to be stuck with parts you cant use...sucks! When saying they are incompatible, are the mis-aligned? Too thick? As far the 3racing forum, I think the thing that turned me off on them was pre-purchase. I made inquiries on delivery to the US and they never answered. That type of customer service tells me that the potential recipient of my money is probably unreliable. So, for all other Cyclone S "hop-up=pers", be advised and be wary!
