The Speedmerchant Rev 4.5 is pretty awesome, I'd suggest taking a look at it..

Most importantly, in that picture are three different designs. They're only as capable as the driver.

So which one do you think is the neatest looking with the body off?

Im kinda biased, but its hard to beat the looks of the Gen
X...that New hyperdrive is pretty cool lookn to...

and although the car works well, the Speedmerchant car gets my vote for the runt of the litter....

The Gen X is sharp, the hyperdrive doesn't really impress me. My vote goes for the DB12. Part of that may be that 1/2 the cars around here are Gen X's (the other half are carpet knifes).

That depends on how many former national champions were behind you.

If you are in a jam at a track all the front ends parts are the same as a 12L4, CRC T-Fource, Gen-X, etc.,...they all use or can use the RC12L4 front suspension.

To be honest nothing else breaks on a DB12R...we've tried

If you want to check out the instructions to see what its all about click the link below.

The Cyclone 12 is a 12L4 that they molded all thier own parts for instead of buying them from AE and some cosmetic changes to the rear pod. The prototype of this that was run at the worlds WAS a 12L4 with all the blue stuff anodized purple.

This is why I sold my Cyclone and I have no respect for Hot Bodies.

TC3 = Pro4
Cyclone = 415MS
Moorespeed Bodies = Protoform
Cyclone 12 = 12L4

Everyone copies each other but no manufactuere is as blatant and shameless as Hot Bodies. They have no originality and make money off other people's hard work.
