the plastic parts from HPI are very good quality i reckon. more durable than Tamiya yet still have fairly good flex and less wear.

Yeah, it seems to be longer than expected... ...We cannot do anything anyway so, let's try to be patient.

I confirm there's a slight toe-in angle difference on the Cyclone rear hub.
You can meet 0.5/1 difference from left to right because the pin in the molding tool is not 100% normal to the wheel axis.
But you can get things ok using the right reamer on both hubs. Then the pressure socket screw on the suspension shaft will put everything in the right alignment.
Or you can choose the purple anodised alu hub too. But mind the suspension flex...

"I confirm there's a slight toe-in angle difference on the Cyclone rear hub."

That has always been a problem since day one. Most of us use the aluminum set to take away the slight toe angle. I hope they solve this with the TCX.

zero is stock on the other Cyclones - don't know why they'd change it here, considering toe-in is really adjusted by the suspension parts, not in the rear hubs

i realize that you can adjust toe in both places, but he did ask about the stock pieces.

I should have clarified my statement by saying that its limited toe-in adjustment in the hubs - the major adjustments are handled via the suspension blocks

its all good

I heard "End of July" but other people heard "End of August" during the Reedy race... So after the Worlds for sure.
