Default RDX or Cyclone?

Hi I am considering the RDX and the cyclone, which is better in terms of handling? I run mainly on asphalt and i prefer the car not to be too stiff. Thanks.

if you are only running outdoors both cars are good but the RDX has been a out a little longer so parts are easy to get. I can not speak against the Cyclone because I never ran or know any who does. The RDX is a great handling car.

yeah, the rdx is a pefect car, but maybe the cyclone is a little better than the corally. just caused by the advancement.

from what I have seen the car do I'd say get the RDX. No one here really runs the cyclone so I don't have a clue as to what the car can do in regular hands.

Someone has the cyclone at Speedworld running mod, and just like any new car there are some fragil parts that seem a little suspect at the moment. Steering knuckles and ball studs as well as the front bulkheads. I would wait until improvements are made.

I have seen a cyclone run on asphalt, I was pretty amazed how it handled and how fast it went into turns.
