...QUOTE]

new revised 3.5mm shock towers are suppose to be coming out soon..along with narrow 39t pulleys, updated 2.5mm chassis, and updated right side middle bulkhead.

Hara and Surikarn edition cars will probably come out first.

Well my Cyclone showed up a day early at my hobbyshop so after I clean the work bench and organize some I will begin prepping the chassis!!!!!!!!!! Did take a quick look at the directions and from what I saw it looks fairly standard and easy to build thats for sure. Will have a rolling chassis sometime Saturday and install my electronics then as well.

Great thing I I have plenty of time this weekend to getting the car setup plus I ordered all my spare parts. I wanted to get Square alum front steering knuckles and rear alum. hubs but Speedtech didn't show having the steering knuckles in stock so I think I will just wait for Steve to get some in. No fond of order over seas if I don't have to. If you know of a place in the states that has them in stock let me know.

Allspeed hobbies may have the Square parts you're looking for... but if you want to save half on the square parts... get the Jet Racing Parts Overseas.
the money you save can pay for other jet parts like the aluminum swaybar mounts, updated upper bulkheads etc..
go to Precision Rc website.

I checked out Precision RC last night for the Jet parts and didn't see what I was looking for. I did find a few things for the Cyclone but did find steering knuckles or rear hubs. Not a huge problem though.
