Neither these 2 bodies which announced in twice months ago are selling in somewhere:

09X

Type B-C

...and much more!

Maybe they have trouble in the factory or just selling some kinds in determined countries?
In case these kinds are appearing just in the EU site.
Somebody tell us when could we buy HB bodies, please?
We HotBodies USA don't carry those bodies as they are available only in EU market. However, we do carry all the body line ups that is sold under "HotBodies" brand such as our new touring car racing body "Subaru Impreza Type-B". There will be more bodies coming....

Thank you.

As for the main chassis upgrade from the tub chassis to the graphite chassis, I think it would be a good change to try. Actually the tub chassis works extremely well especially on low bite, but it's a bit heavier and keeps the motor a little bit hotter due to the less air flow.

I believe that the part number #HB70728 is the part number for older main chassis and it's already discontinued. The new part number for the new refined chassis is #67702.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
I hope i will see you at race tracks in socal (Yes, now we have choices!)

Thanks
-Hiro
Hiro,
Thanks for all the info and look forward to seeing you soon. Look for a PM from me.

Phil A.

If you would have started reading when you first posted your bid on the cyclone you would be halfway finished already....

I have a PPD tweak plate for the cyclone forsale.

PPD Cyclone Tweak plate

I need to raise some cash, and I am trying my best to not sell my Moore Speed before I get to run it lol.

It is has some girth to it. I am sure you could knock out a wombat or other small creature with it in one shot lol.

Default Help to a new Cyclone owner

I am getting back into racing and picked up second hand Cyclone TC. I did have a TC5 which I gave to my son to get him going in racing and a s400 sold for lack of parts support. So I do have a bit of understanding; while racing local club events once and a while.
I did try to read back on the posts with over a 1000 there is a lot of information to take in. So I going to ask a few questions and hope I dont get flamed just redirected to the info I am trying to find.

I plan on running 13.5 brushless/Rubber class. with a trakpower lipo 4900.

Will my lipo have any issues to seat in this chassis. If so is there a correction or parts to fix this?

Can some point me in a direction for a good setup for this car?

What internat ratio should I be using? gearing? and Rollout?

Can someone list a noobs crash kit list I should be stocking up on? What are the weakest links in this kit?

If you dont want to clutter the forum you can PM me.

Thanks

Hello,

1.) You can grind the stock bulkhead about 2mm to give more clearance for the battery pack. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, HB now offers a really cool bulkhead and upper deck combo that frees up some room for lipos with no performance loss.

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

2.) Go on to the setup sheets on hot bodies website. Either Hiro's Starting setup, Hara's Reedy Race setup, or Andy Moore's Worlds setup is a pretty good starting point.

3.) Hmmm... The Final drive ratio is really dependant on which 13.5 motor AND ESC you plan to run. If running a Sphere TC spec, shoot for a final drive in the low-mid 4 range. For tighter indoor tracks, mid-high 4's should be good.

When running a super high timing advance setup on our current generation ESC's like the LRP SPX, Tekin RS Pro, and the Ko Propo BMC 1.5... you will need to gear more conservatively, sometimes dropped as much as 4-5 teeth when using 64 pitch gears. Just make sure temps are reasonable (between 150-170 F) and it should be pretty good.

4.) Grab some arms, steering knuckles and rear hubs (they come in the same pack), maybe some 4 deg caster blocks, and a few universal shafts. That covers things that can break and bend in a bad crash. Also get a good selection of spacers. These can be used all over the car to adjust roll center, wheelbase, swaybar rake, anti-dive, ect...

Hope that helps!

-Korey

Hey Korey, how would you compare the Subaru with Protoform's new LTCR?
