But here is the thing.

(new Cyclone TC has steel turnbuckles, non-coated hinge pins, etc)

We made the new Cyclone TC at a lot more affordable price this time. So I wouldn't say that updating the Cyclone you have is cheaper (or easier because there is so many parts you will have to update) than just buying another new kit.

In addition, like I said the new Cyclone will have a lot of new features, I would consider the new Cyclone will be the flagship model.

Thanks,
the new cyclone has steel turnbuckles, steel hinge pins/shocks shafts and its your flaghsip model?

Hopefully they release a limited edition at some point.They have to bring the price point down to get the car to be reasonably priced.Have to compete with the AE's of the world and their 349 dollar car.The steel items won't effect performance,but may be less durable as the hardened/alum diff halves and Ti items on the AME.

Yes I would still say it's gonna be our flagship model. Our team drivers used this new Cyclone TC with some option parts at the TITC (titanium turnbuckles, Kashima-coated shock bodies, aluminum pro-spec diff out-drives, etc).
Even if the car will have steel turnbuckles, we will have the titanium turnbuckle set as option parts so don't worry about it.

Of-course it is also a good way to add some update parts on the WCE(AME) too. But if you do this way, you will need to buy more parts than adding option parts on the Cyclone TC though.

BTW, good point racenut123!!
Our price for this car is very affordable. We could make this happened with keeping the same High-quality.

Thanks,

Ouch


Jeeze, I got my gearing yesterday, and put it in today

Im running a 96 spur, and a 52 tooth pinion LOL, I didnt want to buy the 18T pulleys, so I got a bigger pinion, and I still have room to spare in this car, I thought it wasnt going to fit

Hopefully tomorrow goes good! I will post how I like the new set up

Heres pics of the new Cyclone TC, really cool but I would have liked to see the aluminum spring pirches, matching purple shock preload collars, Ti-nitride shock shafts/hinge pins, ditch the FRP rear plate in favor of the worlds aluminum finned peice...but My question is why revert back to the old ver.2 universals???











Now are those new arms?
