Hi Streetfreak.
When you say it just came in the mail from Towers do you mean 'Tower Hobbies'? If so, why have you bought from Tower?
Having built one up myself recently, I'm not sure what the issues you are having are (apart from the missing parts).
Was the box factory sealed?

Wow, you're opinion changed over the course of 1 day?

I'm guessing you're from the States, hence why you bought from Tower Hobbies?

Had my first run with the car today. Got to say I was more than imprssed with the car. I seemed to find that the car flys flatter and more consistant that I have expirenced over the Jumps at Coventry before. I also tested the cars strength and it passed with flying colours

I assume you have an D4?
Did you prefer the 10B over the D4?

I ran the D4 for the whole of last season and most of the winter just gone. Comparing the first runs of both cars I would say I prefer the Cyber. To me it seams to be that bit more forgiving. Will be running it at our first regional next weekend, which will be a good test of the car as we have a lot of good drivrs in our region.

Well I ran the car at the mid west regional today. Got to say that I am really impressed with the car. It seams a lot more predictable than I was expecting. Also weighed it and it came in at 1690 with a nosram lipo. People were also commenting on how good the car was looking. Managed to make the B final with it which is the highest I have finished at a regional.

Cool Cyber 10b Dogbones

Car runs Great ,1 problem the right Rear Dogbone kept flying out,after 3rd run i lost it,D4 rear universals are on there way from hobby shop.Surely the first upgrade needed ran great otherwise.

A question for the early adopters: How fragile are the shock towers?

The Cyber 10B looks almost perfect for me (2wd driver wanting to get into 4wd without investing in saddle packs). Just a little concerned the shock towers will break every time the car lands upside down.
