Does anybody have a list of spare parts that would be needed for this car? I have not run mine yet. I just would like to know what to stock up on. Also does anybody have a setup for this car on asphalt? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

does anyone have the kit and has run it?
LHS should have one in soon..... read through the entire thread and it only seems one person has run it (or at least posted). So I guess I have the same question. Anyone else have some feedback from running the car?

Hi Guys,

I'm thinking about getting one of these to have a play with does anyone have suggestions for upgrades which should be considered for the Cyclone-S to make it any more competitive if required?

Ive got spare aluminium shocks to throw on if required, but should i consider getting a center one way and front one way?

I guess universals would be a good idea too....

Thanks
Mangoman

I'd say just universals. If I'm not mistaken it has aluminum shocks.

It comes with plastic shocks, but they still feel pretty good. You can upgrade them if you feel like it, I don't think it's going to be a major difference. The one I looked over was VERY nice. For the price, it's an unbeatable deal.

It has plastic shocks i was looking at one today which a novice driver had going around. His shocks were terrible but he mustve built them wrong because there is no way Hot Bodies would manufacture such terrible shocks.

I was looking at the universals for the car i can steal the axles from my spare pro 4 parts but the actual swing shaft/cvd on the cyclone appear to be longer.


OOPS a couple of earlier posts confirming plastic, i need sleep its 7:44AM over here :P
