Jaad Racing have just released these optional pivot blocks for the Hot Bodies Cyclone. Available in + and – 0.5 degrees for the FR and RR pivot blocks, and a 3.5 degree front or rear pivot block, the user can achieve 3.0 degrees toe.

All blocks are made from 7075 aluminium and have been purple anodised. Available now.
