Those look like... Xray parts??? I recognize that chassis stiffening brace!

Why would an inspirational company like HPI/Hot Bodies follow the Xray route?

That is sad indeed.

Thank God. When an innovative company like HPI/Hot Bodies follows the Xray route, that doesn't bode well. THat would mean that innovation in the hobby has reached its peak and is fully "Optimised"...

Innovation will never stop, as technology will continue to advance.

It's good to see Hara doing some TC. Maybe we will see a new Cyclone (or update) afterall.

On RC Racing TV they interviewed Hara and he said that HB was working on a new TC for 2010. Can't remember the episode but they interviewed him leading up to the TITC..

Looks like the front and rear belts have changed sides like on the Xray lipo setup. Diff Chassis.. hopefully there won't be too many parts to get to bring the current cars up to the new spec..

A Guy at my club has tried that. All he did was cut a new hole in the front of the chassis for the Spool.
