Just thought I'd mention it, Xray composite parts are pretty beefy.

Don't shoot the messenger!
Good to know, I will check into this option. Because yes XRAY parts are pretty darn durable.

Thanks,

I gotta be honest, I do also own a 008.

Since we're taking about broken parts, at last nights club race I sheared off (that's right sheared off) a TIR stub axle right at the hex pin. I thought the TIR stuff was high end.....didn't even crack the C-hub, go figure.

I don't think the xray ones will go right on, HPI# 31414 will.

xray just did what hot bodies could not. make a durable car. don't hate them because they made the cyclone inferior.

LOL xraysteve you and them other 4 ugly cars are going down tomorrow. You know it and you believe it, Cyclone rules the rug. I've seen you brake lots of hight $ ugly parts.
I you put xray parts on your Cyclone it will be slower. Use only HB or HPI parts. except no substitute. lol

Wow, we got some passionate racers here!

In my area Xray is the dominant car and the 008 works well.

I originally bought the Cyclone just cause I didn't wanna run what everybody else was. Then I found out just how capable the Cyclone is on the track. It's a great feeling to put that car on the grid in a sea of Xrays!

BTW-the last time I ran my 008, I broke a front arm. just lightly clipped an inside corner board. snapped like a dry twig!

I hate to say it but the T2 hard bumper (Xray or Parma) will work. Just gotta open up the post holes a little.
