Default Exotek for HB Cyclone TC

I just finished fitting the Exotec chassis conversion to my HB Cyclone TC. I couldn't be happier with it. The finish on the graphite is good and the fit was perfect. I use Promatch lipos (which are lighter than most) and yet this conversion (with belts flipped and electronics moved inboard) still allows my race ready chassis to balance perfectly left to right without need for any additional ballast weight. Racers who use heavier lipos can choose one of the two other mounting positions that allow the option to locate their lipo closer to the car's centerline. What a cool setup. Very well thought out. One more kudo for Exotec.....their order processing and shipping is easily the fastest of any online RC shop that I've ever tried. Two thumbs up for these guys. Great product. Great service. Very satisfied customer.

Well I drove the car the other day and all I can say is WOW. What an improvement over the other chassis. The car had much more overall grip and carried the speed through the corner much better. I also found that the handling stayed much more consistent through the run then before. I had a couple of mishaps during the run and the car was still drivable. A big thumbs up to the Exotek.

Wow- for the longest time I did not know about this thread but I want to quickly say I sincerely thank you all for your support! The success of the lipo chassis program has been very exciting and as the car manufacturers start to ramp up their own lipo chassis we hope to maintain the edge and still supply racers with up to the minute refinements that will help bring you to the winners circle.

I wish to also congratulate Fred Hubbard for his tq and victory in Pro-Mod at the Reedy and Juho Levanen for taking 2nd in the Invite class running our T3 and TC5 lipo chassis!

Best Always,

Mike

OH MY GOD!! I SAW THAT YOU GUYS ARE DEVELOPING A TA-05 V2 chassis!!!!! Dude, you really have to keep us TA-05 v2 users up to date!!

But I do have a question, are you focusing on making the chassis more accepting to the In-board Front Suspension or more for stand-up shocks in the front?
