ok... what i meant was for both of you to drop it not talk about it more...
and yes i do think they should say somting if they have the part for that car that the thread is about. like i said you could of easily sent a PM to the person that was asking about it to voice your opion about the company...

i not here to argue in favor for rc model... i have had i problem about a back ordered item with them once... but you dont hear me complaining or putting them down.. (even though i guess i just did.. o well)

basically put yourself in their shoes. if you were trying to sell somthing at say a convension or something (i dunno just an idea) and say you had it and then some one walks up to the stage and said dont listen to them they are crap. wouldnt that piss you off? basicaly not everyone is going to have your problem that you had.

but seeing how i am accually arguing here about somthing that doesnt really have anything to do with the cyclone i am just going to shut up and leave it at that and not voice myself anymore... i think we all should just stop b4 this gets to be to much of a flaming match

I love the cyclone and i want one!!!

anyone think that the cyclone is missing somthing and might need a certain hopup or chagne to fix somthing? or is it everything you need straight from teh box. just wanna try and find out before i get one because i might just wait for a new verson like a 06spec or somthign that will come with hopups. kinda what happened to me with the 2005 spec pro4

Just to help push this back on-topic...

One of the racers I know didn't threadlock the grub screw on the locked pulley installed on the layshaft, and the screw got stuck in his motor and killed the motor and his speedo. Ouch! So remember to threadlock that thing!

Remember you can always put users on "ignore" if you want to...ignore them... :P

Let's try to keep it on-topic though, for everyone's sake.

Thanks for that Frank, I'd better go and do mine...I just figured that they'd be OK as it's a similar system to a pinion and they never come off....

I'll be running my Cyclone tonight for the 3rd time, 2nd time on foams, hopefully it should go a little better than last time when I broke a steering ball stud in the final. I've also got a new shell, so that should help things too, I'll let you know how I get on

Yes, I noticed this as well. I havenít driven the car yet so donít know if it would cause a problem. But to prevent any possible problems I shaved about 1mm of the servo mount to move the servo away from the belt.

I did not wait for HPI/Hotbody to release the harden type ... I save my two front alloy bones for rear, and I use some left-over Tamiya 42mm harden bone together with Tamiya one-way drive cup in the front, work pretty well.

any chance of a rear spool being released? or is one out?

i have locked the rear diff by taking out the bearings and making a thick cardboard gasket and "liberal" amounts of CA.

a legit spool would make it easier tho.

also anyone know of 0deg pivot blocks? or is 1deg as low as i can get?

cheers
