Hey guys im new to this onroad stuff. Im looking at doing some indoor carpet racing, we have an oval and road course. I run hot bodies buggy and truggies and love them. I see hot bodies has some onroad kits. How are they and how they compare to the tc5, etc? Thank you for the help

I think you would be fine with a Cyclone TC. It is as good as any other brand out there. I just started running a Cyclone TC in our 17.5 touring class, and with the right tires and setup the car is a blast to drive.

The cyclone and the new TC coming out from hotbodies can be as competative as any other TC on the market. If you like the brand and part support is working for you... go for it.

in the cyclones, Yes. The TC comes with all the graphite and most of your decent touring cars are graphite, flat chassis, cars. I recommend Xray because thats all i ever run but the cyclone and the Tcx are both great cars and if you ever watch any of the snowbirds videos the you will see that Atsusi Hara (if i spelled it right) is very much competitive with the Xrays and associateds etc.

thank you guys. This is just for club level racing. What do you think a good 17.5t motor and esc would be? Also for servos how many torque oz do you need.

Find out what your club's policy on timing advance is, as that might affect your motor and speed control choice.
