instead of adding all that extra weight... I'd stay with the stock steel screws.

No only on the top deck and areas like servo nounts stuff, all suspension related pices are on steel hardware. Anyways the difference is not much. just a few grams.

very nice...

I was looking at going from my Pro 4 to a TA05....this is a much better alternative as I already have plenty of spare parts! Any word on the price?

Wow aluminum shocks on an economy plastic car!

The hopped up versions looks nice. Exactly like a Cyclone except the lower/upper deck. If they made it in carbon I'd much rather use a tub than the graphite plate we have...

carbon tub chassis that would be nice to have...
will probably work best for asphalt.
this brings back memories of the Yok tub car..

Cyclone S will probably not have aluminum shocks.

Reminds me of the xray T1R minus the metal bulkheads.

Great move from HB to have a tub chassis for guys running asphalt.

I think it suite American racer because the car kit will be very stiff due to carbon graphite than the original some more like Yokomo MR4TC SD CGM not really used in JAPAN or asphalt people tend to used carbon chassis more flex

Interesting, I'm hoping that it's lower price will do the same thing the T1R did for Xray. It's made the car more apealing to others that where initialy aprehensive about buying the (at the time FOC) top of the line car.
