I've just put up the first couple of sections of my article on building the HB 12x on www.carsrcracing.co.uk. These just show what is in the box and what is new/changed from the Cyclone 12, but more will be added in the coming weeks.

You can read it at http://www.carsrcracing.co.uk/?page_id=112

Hi Oze!

That's because I haven't written the rest of the guide yet. They'll be posted a few sections at at time over the next 3 or 4 weeks. I'll post on here and on www.rcracechat.com every time I update it.

Great new packaging

Look and ask for this car at a hobbyshop near you.

i have a c12, that i converted to a 12x

its a great car fully able to compete with any other car. the shock is the best and the silva concepts shock that everyone wants is the hb shock with a different cap.

i have yet to break a front arm. i have stripped the holes out of them but i have not broken one

Anyone have a good azzphalt setup for this car. Seems like there is not too many of them out there. I really liked it on carpet, running the 2.5 chassis, but it is not right on the pavement as of yet so trying to cut down my wrench time if someone has a good setup. Also has anyone tried to change the rear pod from a disc to a tube setup yet?
