Default Hot Bodies TCX

It appears that the Cyclone replacement/evolution will be called the TCX, so time for the proper thread for it.

Translated (roughly):

''The new HB touring car called TCX

According to the Japanese RC Magazine "RC Magazine is" the new Hot Bodies touring car which we have already introduced as HB prototype, called HB TCX. Further details are unfortunately only the magazine's readers without notice.

The photos can be seen from the above-mentioned changes:
# The chassis is designed for use with LiPo batteries
# The drive belts were installed new engine in the center closer
# New two-deck
# The aluminum bridge on the right front of the engine Deleted
# Position of the steering servo turned 90 degrees
# New steering''

knowing hotbodies there will be no conversion kit. It will be a new kit.

And the servo is still in the same position based off that pic!

Yep, the servo is as standard in the photo, but the drivetrain has been flipped, so maybe its an interim/early prototype?
