Wish he would let me run it and he take my car for mod. Barry would have a hard time keeping up with me if I had Scotty's car. Hiro should demand that he let me run it to bring home the win

Anyone, I need a good starting FDR for my Cyclone black edition (16T center pulleys) for 17.5 Rubber TC on a small 80x40 carpet track. Using a Duo 1 17.5 motor and 2S lipo. Thanks

Default Best Deal on a Cyclone TC

Hi, wondering what the best price people are getting into a Cyclone TC for these days. I've read that there may be a new car coming out and with my luck I'll buy one only to have it replaced by a new model a month later. The best I've found it is for $339 online. THanks.

$339 is probably the best deal you can get. If I remember correctly, Stormer offers the best price.

Does anyone know the proper way to remove the front spool POM outdrive without damaging it? I am referring to 67731. Thanks.

This may sound a little odd... but I usually take my side cutters and place the flat side against the bearing, and just very carefully use them to pull off the aluminum sleeve that's on the outside. I basically just close them till the "blade" is just under the aluminum sleeve then carefully rock it back. The aluminum sleeve pretty much just pops off.

Hiro might have a cooler way of doing it though. Now I pretty much always use the steel ones though. I've been running more modified, so the pom outdrives can break a little easier.

I have a very lame question. I have only been running for hot bodies for a few months now so I only have experance with the TC. I have a few of my local guys that have the Moore edition. I just want to know what the differances are and what effect they will have it both cars have the same set-up.

They should be the same for the most part. The Older cars have a slightly stiffer chassis because of the cutouts in the chassis are smaller. Also, if the moorespeed is using that heatsink mid deck, the whole back end of the car is stiffer.

Thanks Korey, I will give your method a try.

*** Hiro, or anyone, if you have a better solution, please share with us.


I think the POM outdrives give a little more turn in, especially at tight corners, while the steel ones turns better at larger, higher speed corners. Do you have similar experience, Korey?

#61404 - SWAY BAR SET (CYCLONE S)
vs
#hb70735 - SWAY BAR (1.2MM)
#hb70736 - SWAY BAR (1.4MM)

Thanks. I know the new car has new shock towers but I don't know if they are in the same positions. with the new arms what holes are in the same place? Ie.. new hole 2 = old hole 2?
