The chassis is different but pretty much the same, just some battery slots for NI-MH. A different top deck with an option for the ATC posts. There aren't alot of hop-ups on it like the WCE.

-alloy shock mounts
-alloy belt tensioner
-alloy spring pirches
-Ti turnbuckles
-MIP CVD's
-Graphite bumper brace
-purple shock collars
-alloy servo mounts
-Ti coated hingepins/shock shafts

the new TC doesnt have these parts.

thanks for the info ive already got the worlds car and i no someone that want a new tc car.

Hot Bodies does sell direct to shops. Shops can contact Hot Bodies directly to set it up.

The TC has:
-New chassis/upper deck, accepts molded battery trays, additional cut outs for more tuning options
-New re-designed rear diff with a larger diameter diff screw
-Combination spool/one way front diff
-Comes stock with 18T pulleys/belts
-FRP middle block for added traction
-3.6 mm front and rear shock towers (front tower also sits lower)
-Re-designed sway bar mounts (more tuning options)
-Re-designed suspension arms (left and right are the same)

RE: WCE Andy Moore Cyclone
The WCE Cyclone was created as a replica of Andy's ride at World's, so it does have more "bling-bling" parts.
The TC is the next generation of the benchmark Cyclone chassis, so more function, less a few "bling-bling" parts.

Thanks,

AH

RE: shock towers
Specs are pretty much dictated by requests/inputs from the team guys, so it's a continuous evolution.

Thanks,

Hi Andy,

Can you tell me if they are new arms on the TC too? I mean are the rear arms slightly shorter or have HB just gone with a new mold?

Cheers

Guys

First run last night with the new diff in my WCE, all i will say is wow its a must have!
Its far far smoother doesnt slip at all, an still feels as good after 8 runs as it did when built.
The car handles much much better.

Well done Hot Bodies.

Default Cyclone TC rear toe

I just finished building a Cyclone TC ... very nice... but on my set up board I was getting a 2 degree toe-in on the right rear and a 4 degree toe-in on the left rear... as far as I can tell the rear toe is determined by the Pivot Block ( part # 75162 ) which is a 3 degree... I can't figure out why one side of the car is getting more adjustment then the other ??? Is there anything I can do to correct this ? Thanks

The car is working pretty good but the driver can't keep it together for a full heat. I just rebuilt the car again for qualifying and hopefully mother nature doesn't ruin things for us as it's suppose to rain tomorrow.
