i believe that the rc-touring link is suggesting that the graphite will be avail for those prices. but ONLY the graphite.
the 27 people that bought the CAR also get SUPPORT with it.

idk i may be wrong tho.

the body mounting is quite interesting. doesnt seem like such the sweet move to have so much of the body unsupported (due to having the rear body posts so far forward).
its also interesting that the rear shock towr has camber link holes. especially since the vertical camber link mounting is also retained.
also its interesting that it doesnt use servo mounts.
and whats up with the shocks???

idk interesting x ONE MILLION!

they could have called the Pro5...
cyclone has loads of steering...excellent corner speed but you can't beet the acceleration of a shaft driven Pro4.
cyclone easier to tune and build. easy access to diffs.
HPI/HB as always did a great job on it.

no1uno, take the IRS big bone for the TC3 and strip the anodizing off of it. That is the cheapest solution you can find for your issue. I use the TIR CVD's myself, but I don't like the titanium axels as they are brittle and expensive to replace; and you can't use a steel axel with the TIR bone.

Easy Off Oven Cleaner works for clearing the anodizing off aluminum.

TC4 HD bones work the best.... I'm having several packs re-anodized to purple.
