Spool for rubber tires. Asphalt or carpet. Just set it and forget it.

If you decide to go with a spool. The HB Ver. 3 spool is the best spool out there for the Cyclone. It's very durable. And it's much lighter than the newer TC Spool/One-way combo.

You mean the ball cups? If they seem tight you can use a lighter to heat the ball cups then pop them on the arms. This will stretch the ball cups out slightly allowing them to move more freely on the arm mounts.

For some reason I remember seeing a pic that he was running a Nosram. The pic wasnt close up enough to tell if he was running the new Nosram that they ran at worlds, or just the normal one.

It's getting sent back to check for blown fets. I was just curious to see what Hara was running. You already know what I've been through

Thanks what I was figuring and yeah, the cyclone is a great drift car!

Hara ran the NOSRAM ISTC.

The sister speedo to the LRP TC Spec.

I haven't seen anyone using the NOSRAM Pearl/LRP SXX since the worlds.

Default Rollcenter

Now I'm confused: even on low-med traction set up, I see most driver like to use 1.5mm shim under suspension blocks...what? I thought that adding shims under the suspension blocks gives you higher roll center, which in turn gives you less over all roll and traction? Is this right? Can some one pleas esplain this again...sorry for the truble
