Are you using any kind of tray to keep it from falling out?

Yes, the Manutech weight is a brass tray for the battery to sit in. Also the battery is taped down.

When you run this configuration do you need to file the aluminum mount to make it fit?

you'll need tires - from what I recall, the TC doesn't come with any

unless tires was part of your "etc"

The purple shims are 2mm that come with the kit...the other shims maybe smaller or larger. This shims will either raise or lower the roll center based on their size.

should I have four of these or just two a piece, I also have the 3racing shims . Do you just put them under the numbered pivot blocks and put the purple shims under non numbred blocks. sorry for the confusing question. I want to use these graphite shims so I can save the purple washer style for other things

Can anyone share some High Bite carpet setup with the Cyclone TC?

Our local track gets sprayed for traction in the morning, traction changes high enough to make cars traction roll on rubber tire..

Traction roll in middle of the corner not on entry.

we are currently using Sorex 28s.

any help would be appreciated..

Thanks.

Where is the best place to buy parts from here in the states(place that has a good stock of parts)? I ordered a few things from HB on monday and it still has not shipped yet, I called them today and they "said" it will ship today. Only other places I know of right now is speedtech and tower.
