It's a tuning aid. The tamiya knuckles are much longer, and the ballstud is further towards the outside of the car as well. When combined with 0-1mm of shims on the steering rack, it smooths the steering out a bit. Not really better or worse, just different.

I still have two Cyclone TC's in my arsenal. One for the Stock Class and the other is a BMI Foam chassis conversion. No need to get rid of them, when I can use a lot of the same parts.
ur right i still have version 1/2 no need to get rid of them i also hve the pro 4 but may break it dwn or sell it

Korey,

Why did Andy remove the upper brace for the steering? Was it for more flex up front?

Also, I noticed the one way I bought for the TCX needs shorter dogbones (the pins are all the way into the cups with the 46mm), why wasn't the 44mm included with the one way kit?

Thanks

I can, yes. I'll be there around 10 and probably will leave before racing begins.

For the bone end into both the front and rear, I use tamiya anti wear grease,

That's the only reason I can imagine for there being a difference in the wear between our shafts

Thanks Luke, will give that a try, I run the anti wear grease at the spool outdrive end.
Will it stop any further wear?

Still love the car

Hi Malc,
I am running a cross between Tim H's which he ran at Ipswich and my old TC set up.

Now running 30W oil all round with 3 hole 1.1 pistons (Think Tim ran 2 hole)
upper shock mount 3 frt & rear (Tim was kit)
Front droop 5.5 on Hudy (4.5mm)
rear droop 6 on Hudy (4mm)
rear link on outer hole on hub carrier

Otherwise kit settings

Found this is best yet, has given more all round grip and the back doesn't tend to kick out as it was doing previously.
Now really starting to mix it with Ben Mannell, Trev, Mark W & Thomas G at the club

Thats what I would assume he's doing. I've been running it with the brace, and connected to the top deck. Flex seems pretty equal front and rear that way. Give it a shot, and see if you like it.

I don't really have a comment on the one way thing... I haven't run one since 2006. I usually always have a spool in my car.

Have any of you guys tried the aluminum front spindles or the rear hub carriers? Or do you guys think they are just the BLING factor???
