Default Hot Bodies Cyclone/AE TC4... Still relevant??

Hello all,

I've been contemplating on getting back into the hobby after a long hiatus and I was wondering if the HB Cyclone was still relevant (for a beginner)? Are parts readily available?

What about the AE TC4?

Currently, I have both of these cars and I'd rather not buy more stuff if possible. I have a Novak 17.5 motor/esc. for power.

Thanks
Loren

No reason why either wouldn't be a good basis to get back into the hobby. Both will still be competitive with the right driver (moreso the Cyclone in my opinion). AE still sell the TC4 as an entry-level car, and many of the commonly broken parts on a Cyclone are compatible with the latest TCXX.

The only thing you might find, depending on the model of Cyclone you have, is that it might be tricky to fit some LiPos in there.
