What is the difference between the Hara and Andy Moore Cyclone versions? Does anyone foresee Hot Bodies coming out with a new Cyclone soon?

I am trying to debate which TC to get for the summer asphalt/rubber season. The Hara and Andy Moore versions both look nice but I am looking for a used version.

Do you need any other parts/tuning options besides maybe springs and suspension blocks for either of these cars.

Get a v3 spool for sure, and the v2 steel front shafts, that will save alot of heart ache. The stuff marcus mentioned is good to consider too. What I have broke most on my car was the servo saver, and the spindles. The spindles were due to being stupid and putting too long a screw in it.

I know i'm blind, but where is the receiver? Is it under all those wires?
I have a spektrum too, but run a novak GTS not B. Works good. Do you like that servo?
Thanks!

HAHA its like a where's wally book took me 20 seconds to work it out.

Looks like a micro spektrum receiver and its boxed in by the servo the speedie (which has the fan on top) and the capacitor. Its half covered by a mass of thin wires.

Hey Robbie I am quite sure that the springs on Marcos's car are Tamiya
but the xray springs do fit I use the xray gold progresive springs on my cyclone also used them on my assoc.

Have the whole set will never part with it while I still race.

Are you able to get a 5mm ride height with Xray springs???

I was told by a mate of mine who borrowed my car that he couldn't get the ride height.

Is there something i need to do to make them fit or they fit straight away?

Thanks

Robbie
