And nothing wrong with having that title if you know its your role. Racenut has been a thorn in my side since minute one. I will leave it at that considering I have been out of the game for a minute and dont want to get in trouble with the mods. See racenut, some people have evolved from knuckle-draggin cavemen...whats your excuse?

Thank you racenut, I will take that as an "olive branch". NOW, can you get me some sneak pics of a Cycone in development.....I cant find any on the net. The Schumacher is looking sweet, but brand loyalty still means something to me.

I think many parts are new, including:

front arms
top deck
chassis
steering assembly
front hinge pin mount
motor mount
front steering block

Thanks. Been out the game for a minute....is Hara only running off-road? When I was on last, he was ripping off-road to shreds.

Most manufacturers, including HPI are focusing their resources at 1/8 nitro off road right now, because it is a growing class and lots of money involved; probably more profitable for them.

Even with the advent of better BL/li-po conversions..interesting. Thanks again.

Does anyone know where I can find similar lipo solution for Cyclone TC? If someone can custom make it, I would be the first to buy it

http://www.redrc.net/?s=josh+top+lipo

Is there any simple solution for keeping lipo packs with flat bottom from sliding out of the car?

I have found using a weight plate under the battery to be the best solution. They are usually made in such a way where portions of the plate sit inside the cell slots, and if it's glued or taped to the battery, it keeps them in pretty good.

To me, it seems like the best way to add weight for balancing out the car left to right and still give good handling. Since it adds weight as low as possible, and it's in the same location of the typical nimh cell the car was originally designed around it handles just the same. It may not be all the weight you need to add, but it definitely decreases the amount of ugly lead you have to find room for.

I am using SMC 5200 40C packs. The pack is very thick, so there is no room under the pack. Any suggestion?

I found this Lipo Balancing Weights that also keep the lipo pack from sliding out of the car. Can someone custom make this for Cyclone TC, based on the existing holes on the Cyclone TC chassis? I am very interested.

Most just grind the bulkhead that hangs below the upper deck.
