I noticed that ur only running a rear swaybar. Is this to prevent weight transfer on power during a turn so your chassis doesn't touch the carpet?

The Cyclone TC will work great out of the box for rubber carpet racing. As for spares I would get steering knuckles, castor blocks and I would suggest getting the original cyclone front arms to replace the TC arms as the TC arms are not a strong as the original ones plus I hear they give you more steering.

Artwork, I'm surprised to see you ran a ball diff (front). I thought a spool was the only way to go.
Thanks.

Art,

A diff? WOW! I'll give this a try next year. You drove well but had some bad breaks... Your mod car looked good also.

Speedtech.

Great stuff, I use it on my Cyclone... One piece easily lasts the race day.

Does anyone have the exact measurement from the chassis to the right rear bulkhead? I would like to find a lipo that fits without having to dremel or buy the lipo conversion kit. Thanks
