Also just a tip to reduce arm breakage, put the wheel nuts on with the wheels in place and cut off the excess axle threads. If you look at the axles down the plane of the wheel you will see that the frist thing to hit will be the axle. It will act like a spike and sink into the boards and shread your arms. I had this problem until I trimmed the excess off. Now I have to hit a board at full speed with the wheels turned into the board to break an arm.

You might want to pick up some extra spur gears, shock o rings and belts. Also, if you can find them, get a couple of extra pulleys for the front 2 way and diffs. The pulleys can be kinda scarce.

I plan on running a 10.5 in the cyclone. Do I really need the brushless motor mount?

Is there any other point to the alum. servo posts besides just bling and maybe weight reduction?

Hello SpidarX, the alum. servo posts from HB ( #61335 ) is not only just bling but also the holes for mounting the servo have a offset. It means the holes are not at the center on the post, the purpose is for when you using any different brands servo, you could switch around to mount the servo nicely without bending the servo's ears, it's a useful upgrade. According the brushless motor mount, you don't really need it for 10.5, it's pretty much for Mod only.

the closest "pdub" style bumper for the cyclone was either X**y or the C*****y one with a little bit of creativity... sorry you gotta fill in the blanks.. but take your time it turns out real nice.

Brushless motor mount isn't needed for 10.5. Any brushless spec racing it's pretty pointless. It raises the center layshaft up 2mm so it's possible to install bigger spur gears (110+).

Gearing for a 17.5 on an spx.... somewhere in the 4.5-5.0 final drive ratio range should be good if you're using profile 7. It'll just depend on the track layout and size. Keep a tab on your temps as well

It's only called the brushless motor mount, because back when it was released the only brushless motors being used were the low wind modifieds
