Exclent and capable car. Change out the front c hubs and put in a front spool and it drives great. Also look into the tamiya ta05.

If you are going to do the cyclone s you can keep a look out and get the older cyclone black for a little more than the s outa the box.

It's a decent chassis but it's also not very popular so you won't have the track support you would have with some of the other available tc's in case you break or need setup advice.

Not popular? Hot Bodies USA is having a hard time keeping the Cyclone S and the new Cyclone TC in stock...and they have been for over a year now.

Really??? I would say that in Northern California the majority of cars are either the TC5 or a version of the Cyclone. It is a very easy to drive and set up car.

Not popular,

the TA05 is slightly cheaper and better spec'd. although HB parts are more available, you won't break a TA05.
