I like the black colour, it looks a bit more cleaner.
And it looks great if you have a black/dark chassis with a bright and colurfull body, great contrast!
But that's just my opinion...

in the pic you see the cyclone with some 3700's...how will 3300's fit on it? or will it have sleeves like the BD. Looks like i'm interested in the cylone again...it's the easiest car to transfer from the pro4 (duh )...down from bodies, suspension parts, and not having to buy a new servo case since you have to chop of the top left ear for the pro4.

no need they only need the lower ear of the servo to screw on the servo mount.

I dont mind it black though purple would still be my first choice. Coz black would go with my entire setup on my pit table, black much more equipment, tools, black pit towel.. man.. I gotta dress goth too, where's my black lipstick..

spoke to hara and murai during their trup to Aus couple weeks back ... he says the kit version is black so that it does not confuse the consumers as being a HPI product ,... so HB kits will be black and HPI kits will retain their traditional purple..

hara also said he'll be moving to the black kit once it's released .... whenever the release will be ..
