Indeed it is. I haven't noticed any change in handling, but I did notice it tends to tweak a tiny bit easier. Other than that, it's great. I've been running it for a while now with good success. It sure makes fitting lipo batteries a lot easier. I'm running a Thunderpower 40C 5000mah battery with a PPD Billet Lipo weight plate and still have room to go.

Do you have one?

Hello, i run with Cyclone a few years ago, my car is a Surikan Edition, but with a few updates, Diff Pro, TC chassis and upper deck, WC towers,...

But always, i feel the same problem, when the conditions are too hot, or variables, the car are litle unpredictable, a little loose, loses grip,...and i tested more things, but i never solve the problem, when the conditions arent too hot i have very good results in races, i think is a problem of setup, but i tested a lot of springs, oils, CG, RC positions, and the problem continue, i dont can to change the tyres, because are control tyres for all races, Sweep 36R.
Normally, the temps here are, from 30-35C to 40C, and the track are to 50-60C.
Sometimes,i think the chassis is made soft with the heat, and flex a lot of more and i think to change it, but the setup say when soften the car i have best results.
Actually, i run with silver-blue springs, and 55WT oil, 2 mm low pivot blocks, 2 - 1.5 mm in camber link, 1 - 1.5 camber,... the setup are pretty standard.

I need some help, i do not know that i am doing wrong.

Thanks, Luis C.

When i ran the Surikarn ed cyclone i had the exact same problem with hot weather. Now that i run the TC ive never had that problem. Dont know why, they are pretty similar.
