The only way that is going to happen is if my KO receiver takes a dump. Other than that I'm going to be just fine. Maybe Hiro should send extra parts to SWR just in case

I heard that the Cyclone can use Team Losi CVD's and that they are better than the ones that comes with the kit. Can anyone tell me which CVD's are specifically.

I believe the losi cvds are standard(not metric)dia.on the axle stubs 'which require standard size bearings,which will not fit the rear hub carrier.
I tried the cvds out of my old xxx-s,they were the right length with bones from a tc3 but wouldn't fit the metric bearings in the hubs.

What some have done is use the steering knuckles from the JRX-S, bearings, and LCD driveshafts. Then it's just a drop in for the front. It does however widen the front of the car out. Most have just been running the stock setup or purchasing the HB DCJ driveshafts which are of a similar design.

Don't worry. I'll be there to provide pictures of the carnage just like last time! For details on "Last time" see the Tamiya thread.

Plenty. If they don't, I have PLENTY in my spares box. I'm pretty sure they just got in more last Friday.

That's pretty much what I was running. I'll have to try that body you were sporting Sunday. It really CARVED on the track.

My car picked up a slight push going into the left hand turns and didnt feel quite right in the main,but was still quick.The wide/Rear suspension bridge was missing a screw and the shim so the block was floating.I think the bridge is bent now because when I went to replace the shim and screw.It didnt want to seat flush. Oh well.BTW, Vasutin's car is a POUND light!I couldn't believe it! 1240grams with body.We had a little talk on why running a spool may be the way he needs to go.

I'm pretty sure I have one of those (black) sitting on my workbench. Let me know it you need it. Yeah, 1240!!!! I thought you guys would scream about my car being at 1418 but, 1240?!?!?!?!?! WOW!!!!! I'm bringing some lead to stick on that car next time he runs! LOL I know what you mean, I talked to him about it too. It was a shame to see that battle pushed off due to contact....oh well, next time! I sure had fun calling that race though!!!!
