When installed on the front of the car, they will reduce the common "chatter" we experience when using a spool or turning at extreme angles. Testing has shown that they also provide a little more steering overall!!! Release date is to be announced, so stay tuned!

I didn't break any DCJ Shafts but i'm way too far from Hara's level I think i'm good enough for durability testing for you guys.

Thanks,

They already are dude!!! Are are aluminum steering knuckles and the really cool aluminum rear hubs I was running at reedy.

http://www.hotbodiesonline.com/products/en/67695.html

This has been designed to work with the standard motor mounts that come in the kits, and the optional "brushless" motor mount. You just add the shim under the bulkhead if you are using the optional motor mount.

Is Hotbodies going to release a new Cyclone sometime in the near future. One that is Lipo, Brushless ready with all the new developed parts on it?

Cheers

I've heard talk about a new car in the making or should i say a more refined car but it won't be released for a while i would say as there is still new parts being made for the cyclone. or it will be all the new parts standard. but who knows this is just speculation!!

Azza, Hows it goin mate? The Cyclone WCE was lipo/brushless friendly dude just ask Mr Taborek and the TC certainly doesnt have any problems with either as Mr Halliday is currently driving one at the moment and winning I might add.

Cheers and hope to see you at the track one day.

my guess would some time after they can make enough parts for the Cyclone models already released. I have never seen a car with more B/Oed parts for a longer period of time.
