I personally not but I'm sure there are a lot of people using it for drift. Hotbodies already has a Cyclone Drift spec came out.

i've tried to drift mine but the way i had it set-up gave it more grip even with ABS tires...
so now i'm just sticking with my yokomo because i'm more used to it.Also i dont have the cash to buy replacement belts.

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!
Charlie,
First of all, it was great to see you last weekend at the Reedy.
I'm glad i could help you. yes i watched your run after i worked on your car and the car looked dialed. Also your driving was i think worth to make the A if you had more runs. That was a little too late, but you did awesome Charlie.

Whenever there is something i can do for you, please feel free to let me know. I will see you at your race next time!

Thanks,
-Hiro

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you all HB users that Team HB did great job at the RROC (Reedy 2009) held in Roseville California last week.

As you already know, our team drivers Scott B and Sean Williams sent their Cyclone TC's into top 21 of open modified and that became the contender of the Reedy Cup division eventually. Even though we didn't have Hara and Andy at the reedy this year, we still had two fast HB drivers in top of the division at RROC 2009.

Also in the super competitive 13.5 spec class, another HB team driver Korey Harbke set his Cyclone TC on the 2nd grid after all the qualifiers and finished 3rd overall. Korey was actually the only guy who went faster than E.J Evans who set overall TQ (E.J Evans) in the 3rd qualifier. I was so impressed.

I will ask those guys to post their setup here but we all ran very similar setups. I hope this will help all other Cyclone TC drivers.

Excellent job all HB Team Drivers!

It seems like alot of people have went back to the ORIG style sway bar system. I would like to give it a try. Can someone post the Parts # on the old system so I know what to get. thanks.

you might need another new set of sway bar too since you probably already cut those.
