Are you using the Cyclone TC? I had this problem to and i solved it by using the WCE links on the front sway bar.

i use those stupid packs that dont have the the little feet on the bottom, so it just slides around, anyone got a way to stop the damn thing from moving about?
i made a tray that fits around the battery 2 keep it form moving

the tray goes all the way around the battery and is screwed to the chsaais

the pic is of the prototype that i make out of a piece of 3mm lexan i have since made 2 outa some 2.5 mm carbon fiber

if any one wants more picsc i can post more 2 night

can you post picks of it without the battery (and perhaps all the weights) in the way?

i dont use weights on my car, i drift it and im not really worried about the weight dist being perfect, as long as it slides ^_^

i was considering building somthing out of lexan, but i saw a plastic box like holder made by a company called ATOMIC that apprently fits on any chassis.

So I go to the Reedy race this weekend and see what this car can do. In all honesty, i thought i have already driven my Moorespeed Cyclone to it's limit and as far as set up, it was not gonna get any better that what it was. I was seriously considering getting a new car..something different. My car was great at Speedworld. But to my surprise, after handing Hiro my car to see if my beat up cyclone had any more life to it, it woke up. And not just "it's good where it is" type, but "WOW...it is the best it has ever been". I would occasionally put down my TA05 IFS and just sigh and say to myself.."why can't my Cyclone handle like this?" Well...at that time, i concluded that the shortcoming of teh Cyclone was the fact that it had 2 different size belts and the balance was off. I was wrong. It handled better than any other sedan could. It allowed me to win my qualifier, but not good enough to make the A. Had i taken my car to Hiro the day before, i think i had a great chance of being in the A. Needless to say, i have a new reborn loyalty to my Cyclone. Thankyou Andy, Colin, and Hiro for helping me with my car. Thankyou Jarrod and Steve for also making sure i could get ready for my race. Looks like the Cyclone is gonna stay. Im probably gonna get another one now. Cheers!

my car isnt purple.. but i stole the "geometry" of the Cyclone from Joven and Korey... put it on my car...and BOY did i have a great set up. too bad the car was better than the driver.

it's definitely nice to have support from team drivers.
