Just because the team is testing things doesn't mean there will be a new car. Give the it some time, and we'll figure out if it's even worth bringing to production or not. The cyclone is a great car already, so if there is any improvement it will amaze me.

Is there a noticeable difference ?
Could anyone answer my question please ?

It looks like HB id testing a new spool , a new servo position with a new top deck wich even covers the rear bracket its really long .

And on the motor mount their is an empty hole for the screw .

It should give you a lot more steering. Since there is more weight in the back, there is more weight transfer from the rear to the front possible. This means more front grip off power. It can also cause the rear end to swing out irratically too. If th ecar is too hard to drive, I suggest moving the cells to the forward position again.

I was not really expecting Team HB to comment or commit on any release date since the car in the picture does not look production, hence my query directed to the poster was on whether a timeline was 'mentioned' rather than actually looking for the official release date.
