This looks like a 'production ready' cyclone!

I believe the new Pro 4 shocks will be included in the Cyclone kit.

An Xray FK05 is close to the 415. If anything, the Cyclone is close to the BD in design.

Besides, the new 415 MSX draws lots of design ideas from the Cyclone and BD.

So 415 owners, dont get jealous Otherwise, just get a 415MSX when it comes out...

VEry nicely stated without bashing!!! Its all good no matter what cars we run because they are all starting to look the same nowdays anyways. I'm interested in seeing one in person sometime in the near future.

As a manufacturer is really hard to be different. Guys that buy your car see stuff on other cars and want you to incorporate good ideas into your future designs. Any new cars that come out have to have vertical ball camber adjustment, bearing caps for diff removal, eccentric diff height/belt tension adjusters, etc.

I give Losi huge props for swimming against the current with the JRXS but they paid the price for it. They got it working great now but they lost a lot of loyal customer because it didn't "look right".

Sedans are getting to the point 2WD buggies have been at for years. They are very similar looking because thats what works.
