Woohoo, two more days until my Cyclone S kit gets here.

I am really looking forward to getting this car. I was thinking about returning it since I also purchased an XRay T2'008 but I decided to keep it and build it up. I think that it will be a much better car to learn on than the XRay. Am I thinking right?

I plan on building it with a Novak GTB esc and a Novak Ballistic Spec 17.5T brushless motor. I am using a Spektrum SR300 receiver, Hitec HS-645MG servo and a pro-match 30C* 5000 MAH 2S 7.4 volt hard case Lipo pack. Hopefully it will be a good car for the stock class.

Oh, I originally ordered a Losi 1/10 Xcelorin Brushless ESC/Motor Combo (6400kV) for the car. I will be sending that back when I receive it.

I have spent a lot of time on carpet fine tuning this setup and feel that it is good. For a little lower bite I would run pink springs up front.

Anyone?

A question for you guys, I bought an andy moore edition about a year ago second hand and was wondering if the rear alloy hub carriers are the same ones as these #67697 or are these revised. cheers

For all these setups being posted... Can everyone please note if the specific setups are for the TC version cars or Moorespeed or the standard black edition.

I have gone through a few and got confused if the specific setup is for the TC which i run. But then again i also have the Moorespeed. I have talked to HB drivers and they mentioned there a slight differences in the cars...

For Example: standard front arms have 2 positions... option 1 or 2.
TC version front arms have 4 positions, 2 are added in
between the original postions..making total of 4. Position 2
is different from old car to new TC.

New TC rear arms have a total of 5! Position 3 on new arms
is different position on old arms...

Also setup sheets are different on each version cars...

Thanks!!! i know it would help with more info and details.....

I know Korey runs the TC. How about Hiro, Andy Moore (did he finally run the full TC car?) or is he still running his version car?


thank again!!

As far as I know, everyone uses the newer TC arms on the team, including Hiro and Andy. The old ones are pretty heavy.

Positions 1, 3 and 5 are the same holes as the old rear arms. Numbers are probably different... but 3 from the new rear arm, is equivilent to the middle position on the old arm (not sure what number they use... probably 2). 2 on the new arm is right inbetween the middle and outer hole on the old arms.

position 2 and 4 on the new arms is equivalent to the holes on the old arms. 3 is right inbetween the old arms holes, and 1 is half a hole further out than the outermost hole.

Not sure if that helps any... Maybe I'll make some sort of a diagram/cheat sheet later on if I have time. Pretty much everyone uses the newer arms on their setups though.

Oh, almost forgot. Andy and Hiro ran standard top decks that were cut to give a little more flex. Other than that... they were pretty standard.

awesome Korey!! as im typing, im installing new TC arms on my moorespeed!!

as for topdeck mods, never tried any... how about the "Mid" top deck....most likely they are running the FRP plate?

Another question.... Did Barry Baker run the setups like Andy? or did he run his own........Man was he Blazin, till he "BROKE HIS NECKBONE!!!"
