That's good news, so it looks as though US will be seeing the first kits on Tuesday? I wonder how long it will be before they become available in the UK?...

This picture is of Andy Moore's Cyclone at the UK National Mod today.
Looks like a Blue (tamyia??) pulley on there:

manufacturers often use other manafacturers parts to save on prototyping and to try out different set-ups. Look at the Pro4...it began life using TC3 suspension. Alex Racing ('cuda) parts etc.

Hi Guys,

Here's the latest information on the Cyclone from Hot Bodies: They have informed us that our car kits are being shipped out today, and we should be receiving them tomorrow (Sept. 13th) All those that pre-ordered will receive a notification / confirmation email tonight or tomorrow. The price have also been adjusted and for those that are interested, we might have a few extras left over

I dont think 6 deg c hubs are needed and for the pivot blocks maybe just 1 - 2.5, dont need the rest. I would try getting front alloy steering hubs and spare lower suspension arms or the high traction ones.

Over here in the UK we tend to run less castor because the tracks tendto be lower grip than the American tracks so I would suggest Carter that you do get 0 and 2 degree castor blocks (what comes in the kit 0??)
