Default Hot Bodies Cyclone 12

This is a good place to discuss the HB Cyclone 12. It is one of a handful of cars that have gone back to the drawing board to build a better 12th scale racer. Of note is the front end~
The front suspension features 3-way adjustable reactive caster for the ultimate in modern pan car handling. Convenient clips are used to adjust the caster angle, making it quick and easy to try new suspension settings. The front wheels are held in place using metal locknuts for security and convenience.

Anyone in Europe have feedback on the car itself? Ease of construction, fit and finish, driving style?

Default Nice Servo mount

unique option mount~
An option for the Cyclone 12 will be the most unique servo mount ever seen on an electric car: the Cyclone Centre Servo Mount System. To prevent left and right chassis tweak, the servo is mounted exactly in the middle of the chassis using the Hot Bodies Centre Servo Mount. This superb mounting system mounts the servo as low in the chassis as a standard two-piece mount, yet uses a single central mount to attach to the chassis. This gives the driver unparalleled consistency when going through turns, and a distinct advantage over any other chassis design.
