What new kit would you like?? All the newest tc's are looking just like what the tcxx already is.

Think xray t4 2014..... It's an orange tcxx

Absolutely not... Don't think of the T4, think about the BD7...

On the TCXX, the upper deck is still touching the central block, however you are putting screws or not... I think this could be improved. We have seen Andy's car with some spacers under the upper deck to avoid the contact... since that, nothing new...

And we can also talk about the floating servo mounting...

With Andy now being head driver instead of Hara at HB the development will be slowed down somewhat however i wouldnt be surprised if the very least an upgrade kit will be shown early 2014 in time for the worlds.

I have a floating servo mount on mine already. I'm not sure the upper deck touching the spur towers is much of an issue.

Sorry for the delay guys, but those new parts are in the process. We are trying to relase them as soon as we can. I would say early next year.

Thanks for your support as always.

The central post already existed in the old TCX, long time before BD7...

Works fine even if it touches the central support, much better, there are more options for stiffening (same Tamy 418)

For floating servo support there are disponible many great after market options.

Is the hot bodies website dead/down? I'm trying to find it. But it's no longer showing up. It's not even showing up in Bing or Google searches anymore.

You can still use the hotbodies Europe site http://www.hbeurope.com/news.php?lang=en but I think the HB USA is part of the HPI website now http://www.hpiracing.com/

May I know what body are you guys running for outdoor asphalt medium sized track?

I am currently using Ride Subaru WRX STI 4Door and don't really like it.

Just ordered a few of the Hot Bodies Impreza "Type C"

Supposed to be aggressive turn in with lots of rear downforce
