Any of the factory guys know what the hold up is on new TC kits? Been waiting to get a fresh car for IIC in Vegas, been on backorder since mid June. Tower had them as late July, then early August, now just plain old on order which is a bad sign if tower is saying that.

Have to say been racing HPI since Pro4 first came out never switched to anyone else now run cyclone, must say most disappointing thing is parts support and the stock available. Frustrating at times!!

Been busy working on trying to get a good setup put together for IIC this year. I spent this weekend really trying to get the car to work on our high bite carpet track with a mock IIC layout. Since I have seen people requesting a carpet setup I figured I would post a complete one. Let me know if you have any questions or feedback. Car worked well with both a spool and a diff, just a few less clicks on dual rate for the spool.
