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...
I believe this includes the belts, 16T center pullies (415 uses one, CYC appears to use two of the same pulley).

Aside from the drivetrain, I also believe the shock towers were identical.

I also saw on surikarn's prototype that he was using a tamiya (blue anodized) center pulley/shaft.

Wow, quick reply!

Is there any difference between the black belts that the Cyclone has and the white ones the Tamiya has, or is it the same just a different colour??

Hmm...as far as I know the only center shafts available for the 415 were the stock black steel. Maybe the blue one was from another tamiya car?

LOL...As soon as I'm done typing there are three more responses.

I liked the black belts better on the 415; they seemed to be just as free but lasted a lot longer.

Exclamation

I asked James at PrecisionRc about the Tamiya bits, this was his response: " Atsushi was caught using a trf415 centre pulley and the rear white belt at the LRP masters and Reedy Race USA, whether this compatibility remains with the production car remains to be seen" . Lets hope!

Hi Guys,

Just got off the phone with Hot Bodies, they are packaging up the kits tomorrow and shipping them out Monday. We should be one of the first to receive them next week, pre-order is still open and we will be working with Hot bodies to fill the pre-order as quickly as possible

Not yet, we won't know for sure until we see an invoice from them including the cost of shipping for all these car kits. But we do anticipate on it being lower than $469.99 for sure

Can I pre-order still and then change my mind if the price is too high?
Will you be sending out confirmations like the FK05?
