unfortunately Hara and Surikarn did not do too well and not make the A mains.

Is that really the Hara edition? How come the only diffrence i can spot is the color? I thought there was a revision on the left hand side rear bulkhead. When is this car expected to come out?

Default Hara version

Hi all,

I'm asking myself if this Hara version is nothing else then a couple of color alu parts. It seams that nobody knows exactly when and what.

PS: Are some good RC shops is San Francisco area (I'll be going there this may) Here in Holland they don't even sell Cyclones.

As stated in an earlier post in this thread, the Hara and Surikarn Editions will come with quite a few new parts compared to the standard Cyclone. Perhaps the car in the pic isn't a Hara edition and merely just a purple Cyclone, but the proper Hara edition will have the updated parts.

What are the new parts ? What is your connection with Hot Bodies/Cyclone ?
Thanks.

According to that site its going to include a SPOOL do you guys think it will come with a one way also?

Any of you guys experience tweak issues with the current cyclone? What is the best way to rectify the problem? I dont hit much things but when i clip the a curve or encounter a light tap the car would steer more onway than the other and will no longer run straight.

It will probably still have a oneway in the package in addition to the spool.

I have no connection with HB, other than that I use their car, but I'm pretty sure that they won't bring out the new editions without the extra parts stated on the link to RC Zone.

Ran the Cyclone on super hig traction indoor asphalt yesturday. Wow the car is awesome and ran just like I hoped it would. I started with the base setup in the book and it pushed like a snow plow. I went one softer front spring from Rayspeed (4 white springs 17 lbs) and layed all the shocks in to where Hara seems to run them most of the time and changed to 2 degree rear toe block and then the car came around and was super fast. Corner speed was excellent. I just need to try my 1.5 rear toe block and see if I can find a 1 degree rear block and I think I will be set. Are track has major traction I tell you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only problem was like many the front alum bones bent really easily thats for sure. Man I hit 4 times harder with my TC4 and never bent a bone. I was driving pretty carefully since I didn't have many extra parts with me. I will be ordering more today and next week before I race again.

I can say I made the right choice with this car!!!!!!!!!!!! Well worth the money in my opinion. Car worked out of the box with only using after market springs and no other additional parts. Car is complete out of the box. Everyone changes springs. I didn't get to mess with sways yet but the car has a full set so I will in time.

Hopefully I will get to see the car in action in a couple of weeks.
