Rest assured, there are online shops like Spedtechrc that carries parts for the Cyclone S. If worse comes to worse, you can always buy direct. You really don't break much on the car to be honest.

Anyway, how will this compare to the Associated TC4? my tc4 breaks quite often, i suppose the 'S' doesn't. I suppose the 'S' is slightly a faster chassis than the shaft driven TC4. But i also suppose, when the 'S' does break, my friend will have to wait till his part comes in the mail and he will be out of racing or even practicing for a week. Would this be true? Hmm.. hard decisions.. lol

I think that you may have a overly simplistic view on this. The TC4 and the "S" assuming you are talking about the RTR version would be the base to start comparing.

1. If you are going to run your car, you should expect to have some spares on hand. This is probably more important to you if the hobby stores around you do not stock Cyclone parts. You do not need a bunch of spares but you should have such things as arms hub carriers, c hubs, knuckles, maybe a spare belt. This will keep you racing with the car in the event of a breakage. This is not unique to the "S" but a generally good thing to have.

2. The "S" has a fully upgradeable path to the current Cyclone TC if you so desire. To upgrade the TC4 to the latest car you are buying whole new car outright. The impact of this is that as your reach the limits of the car (Cyclone S) you can improve on it where you cannot necessarily do that with the TC4.

3. I would not suggest that the TC4 is slower or faster then the "S", each have its advantages and disadvantages. How fast a car can be has many factors than the motor you strap into it.

Personally I own both cars. I have the RTR version of the TC4 and the "S". I choose to use the "S" not because it is "better", but the platform is continually being developed where the TC4 is not.

Kinda a hard thing to answer. Some bodies work/handle different for different people. The whole idea of RCGt is to NOT have a dominant body so the playing field is even. I can tell you what bodies are used at OC Circuit races.
Mustang GTR,Lotus Elise, Toyota MRS, Toyota Supra,Nissan 350Z, Mazda RX7/RX8, Pagani Zonda, Chevy Vette, Honda NSX,Nissan Skyline,Lambo Gallardo, Lambo Murciallago, Ford GT40.

They are just only known as GUMBALLS...i think they are close to a 28* C tire is anything.

These are actually the premounts that come with the kit. They are S compound tires.
