I seem to remember him saying he ran Andy's 2008 IIC set-up with 6mm hexes.

I haven't seen no/zero blocks used. With the 1mm blocks all around (going from the 1.5), you'll get a more subtle response off center and a bit more roll and traction mid corner. In general, lower roll centers work well on tracks with longer smoother lines, as opposed to back and forth twisty tracks.

You can also get that effect on just one end of the car. You'll notice that some setups call for a combination of 1.5/1.0mm front/rear or rear/front which changes the balance of the car significantly.

Exactly. That's a 1.5mm Over Ride Height droop setting.

Is the Cyclone a Lipo Friendly car? I thinking about getting one for 17.5 sedan/RCGT. Is it hard to take a Cyclone and make it a "S"?

Hey guys I just picked up a a used TC and I have a few questions. I noticed that the guy I bought the car from has the purple rear uprights and he has the graphite ones on the car. Which is better to run and which ones do you guys have on your car? Thx guys.

Keith,

Keith,
I have always run the standard kit hubs. The aluminium parts do hold up better, but only by shifting the force of an impact on to other parts (hinge pins, A-arms). The standard parts hold up nicely and most racers use them throughout the entire car.

If the aluminium hubs are 1 degree (as opposed to the stock 0 degree) you could use them as a tuning tool if traction drops really low.

Enjoy your new ride.

Keith,
I run the alloy uprights on my TC, as there was a bad batch of rear up rights, that were showing i think around about .5 degree toe difference from side to side

hey just a quick question on the version 3 spool. Are the optional pom outdrives plastic or steel? they look plastic as there looks like a cover to slide over the outdrive but just wanted to clarify.
