yes...for all major aluminum parts. the small tiny parts are questionable...
as far as cost... my local anodizer did 50pieces for me for around $60.00 USD. enought parts for 2 cars.

I really hope the Cyclone comes out at the end of May, and hopefully not too long after that to be in the states... Does anyone know anything about it?

Where can I see the orange Xray?

Looking at the Cyclone at the LRP Masters, they need to work pretty hard on it, as it looks pretty fragile if someone / something hit the car. I would rather wait until the car is finished in a proper way.

Hopefully there will be more news about this car after the Shizoka Hobby show this Thursday~Suunday... .. who knows... they might have the final production version ready by then but then again they might not

The prototype seemed to look very much similar as the Pro4 such as arms, hubs, blocks etc. Seems the fragile issues wont be a problem since the Pro4 is race proven from its durability. But then, I am hoping for its early release.

Orange xray? Great just like serpent. Cool!

I don't think the suspension will be the problem, the chassis is more the problem if you talk about weak points.
The first spot that was seen by many is the aluminium part above the rear (2) battery cells, But I guess there are some more...
