LOL this is hilarious. There has been a thread discussing the Cyclone in here for the past few months and we still have so many people who only just discovered it??

I saw Andy Moors car today, all the bulkheads are black anodised! Not plastic, it looks sweet.........!

He TQ'd and Won both A finals beating the likese of spashet, Grainger and Drescher with ease!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the production models look and drive as well as his looked, it will be the car to have this year.

Maybe, but puple bulkheads dont win you races do they!!!!!!!

I'd run brown bulkheads if it they knocked a few 10ths a second of my lap times.

If the cars faster and easier to drive, who cares?

yeah but still it does makes a difference, if your not "fully" comfortable with your car, then you won't drive better.
