Never swap them left to right. Put the one that has the R on it, on the right hand side of the car (when looking at it from the back). L goes on the left.

If you mix them back and forth you will get negative caster, which will REALLY screw up the car the car handles. So just make sure you put them on the correct sides and you'll be good

Thats what i figured, thought it might work in a pinch. I just talked my hobby shop owner and i going to stock the parts for me and I am the oly one that runs a cyclone everyone else runs X-ray but in my opinion the cyclone is an X-ray killer well atleast in my class I run stock but with 13.5

so are you a factory driver?

Thats awesome, we all appreciate your help. My questions are kind of confusing sometimes I hate haveing to try to explain over the internet and know one else int oklahoma that I know of runs a cyclone they are all x tamiya or schumacher.

My car last night ran great for the first to qualifiers great then in the third it was ok. we ran practice before the mains and thought I would change somethings then all I did was snap spin and pulled after only 8 laps. I HATE PULLING IN THE MAINS

Will HB or HPI address the issue of the fragile arms on the TC?? Maybe use a different material.

Dannybcaitlyn - I spoke to Andy today about the steering knuckles and A-arms, and it doesn't appear that anything is going to change. I wish I had better news. Many people using the TC have had to switch to aluminum steering knuckles at our local track. Some have started using the Pro4 A-arms. It doesn't appear to be a problem when running outdoors, but indoor with rubber tire on carpet is where many are seeing the problem. Most of the arms people have showed me are breaking right in front of where the bottom of the shock is screwed into the A-arm. Is this where the arm is breaking on yours?

will hotbodies fix the problem with the lipos rubbing the bulkhead, you have to grind down the bulkhead to fit hard case lipo on chassis.

Its not a design problem as the car was designed for nimh's not lipos. So the only fix is to mill/grind down the bulkhead. I had a friend mill mine down 2mm so I could fit my new thunder power 5000's, and It worked great this past weekend on carpet in Chico.

Maybe when HB's comes out with a new car it will be designed to fit lipos with out mod's.

Default Lipo Mod

yes maybe the next car will be a lipo car but ....
This year here in the UK they have allowed you to run lipo in modified at the nationals but with a motor down to 6.5t so maybe the reduced cost of a lipo compared to loads of 5cell batteries would be tempting but all of the "TOP drivers ive spoke to are defintaly going to be running 5cell this year at the nationals but next year im sure everyone will run 6.5 with lipo or maybe they will reduce the motor turns next year and allow 5.5 with lipo

There are no motor limits in Mod, and we can run 5cell, 6cell or lipo. I believe there is a weight break for 5cell though. Last years REEDY race, the Mod open winner ran a 4.5 w/lipo, and 2nd I believe was running a 3.5 with 5cell.

I plan on running lipo witha 4.5 or a 4.0 when I go back to ashpalt racing.

Default Cool

I wanna move to the US lol. Yes in non official events where you can run anything in modified. Ive run 6.5 lipo and 5.5 lipo and 3.5 with 5cell and even 3.5 with lipo i found that about 4.5t with lipo would be about the most you can get away with.
As 3.5 lipo was crazy fast and kind of eats the car !!

For my local track a 4.5 with lipo is good. I'm going to try and go to a 2 day race down south on a nitro track so I think i'll run a lipo with a 4.0 there.

My local track is 160' X 68', same track that Hosted last years REEDY race.

And the Nitro track looks like 180'-200' X 80'.
