Looks like tower hobbies has them the cheapest as you also get $50 off. Is $450.00 the cheapest out at the moment for the Cyclone.

they may save you $20 but you won't beat the service from SpeedTechRC

http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=120&id=5350

SpeedTechRC will have them as soon or sooner than anyone and will ship ASAP take a look

true, Does anyone know what rear toe blocks are included in the kit? I suppose a spring kit and different toe blocks are whats needed to get the car fully adjustable.

probably the same as all the other kits... 3deg. rear toe.
aside from toe blocks and spring set... you'll probably also need the various sway bar options.

What about the caster blocks? Is it 2 or 4 that comes with the standard kit?

Didn't know about this:

"Some of the drive train components on the prototype were also interchangable with the Tamiya TRF415MS, the production version is likely be the same"

I wonder what exactly will be interchangeable? Belts? I did see Hara's car with a white belt on the rear like the 415 has...
