I cant figure why this is hapening. As anybody had the same problem?
upgrade to the aluminum sway bar holder will most likely solve your problem.

so basically... the new swaybar system is deficient... the A-arms are more fragile... er... do I really want to abandon my pro-diff equipped Hara Ed?

I think not. Time to do a third season with it yeeeeehhhaaaaaa!

I believe its a lower deck screw hole position issue.
Then you're problem might be chassis related. The alum hubs worked for me. Any chance one of your buddies has a spare chassis for you to see if that corrects the problem before you go out and spend money on a new one?

Hey all. I just raced last night with this new CNC Machined brushless motor cooling system. It works far better than anything I have tried out yet. I bought it from Norrie Industries Inc. www.norrieindustries.com

That looks like a Novak motor in your car. They run much cooler just by taking of the center purple ring. Let us know hom much cooler that heat sink keeps the motor. Good luck and happy racing.

It cools the motor by 30%. Definately enough to keep you from going thermal.

I'm right there with you Paul! I'm still rock'n the original "Black" Cyclone with a few choice upgrades. I might upgrade to the TC chassis when I buy a new chassis so I can use the torsion control feature.

I still think the best Cyclone would be a WCE with a Pro-Spec Diff and 18T Pulleys/Belts.

You really miss Team Purple don't you...well...we can be big about this. Lose the Blue P.O.S. and get into another HB and all is forgiven.

Otherwise...you're just lapped traffic to us fast guys! Even the fat guy will lap you...just ask him.

After I sent you the pic of the killer meatloaf this is how you treat me I'll be driving my Blue friend testing a few things this weekend If HB would sponsor me and send me a free kit I'd run it again, but until that happens there will be a blue car lapping you for a while
