One more question. The TC I bought is a used one and it came with all these spring combos. Which springs do you guys used for asphalt racing.

Has anyone else got a set of DCJ's yet? Reason I ask is that I've seen two different versions depicted online with the same 67699 part number. One with inline pins (like Xray's ECS) and one with offset pins.

I got a set a few days ago and they were both of the inline variety.

I'm pretty sure the inline ones were pre-production pictures. I remember I posted those haha. The newer productions ones should be opposed 90 deg. This allows for even smoother action.

I figured the opposed 90 degree design would make for smoother operation. Now I have to wonder why the inline design would have even be packaged and sent out to stores? The DCJ's that I have are still very smooth. NO chatter at full lock, even with the car off the ground. So they should be fine on the track.

I was just curious to see if I was the only one that got this version of the DCJ.

Not sure man. It might have been a running change on the 2nd batch that came in.

I have 4 pieces of the offset ones. Looks like the offset version is the latest as I just purchased them.

I guess I got the Special Limited Edition Ver.1 DCJ driveshafts.

As I said before these are still very smooth. The angle that each joint on the DCJ sees at full lock is minimal and doesn't seem to create any binding. Plus, I don't run my car with FULL LOCK so it's all good.

I always try to be different from the crowd. These "one of a kind" driveshafts will only help further that effort.

At the Paved nats, there were only 3 total cyclones running.. 1 driver was in the A- the first 2 rounds, sitting i think 8th.. but with qual points system, he got bumped..... and was "BQ"meaning 11th in results. I was off the pace, i couldnt get comfortable with the car during qualifying, but during all practices, the car was just as fast as the 6th place guy, my buddy. He even made comments regarding how my car was good...... I guess, my nerves got to me during qualifiying........

Sorry, i couldnt get the job done... i did finish 15th overall.

Don't feel bad, a lot of things could have happened during major races like this. You did well

I wonder why HB factory team guys were not there?

Nope, I missed the boat by 2 qual points

Was 6th first two rounds, 9th in the 3rd and got bumped to BQ after the 4th

In the main, I was using SPX launch control and snapped the right front CVD after the tone I had to limp my way for 6 min and finished right behind RCFREAK. Not too bad for a 3 wheel drive Cyclone

Ran the DCJ's last night on a tight carpet track. Car was smoother through the corners. It seemed to give more front end grip compared to the MIP CVD's. Car rotated more through the corners. I actually took a small amount of D/R out the help me not overdrive the car.

What orings are most of you running in your shocks? Just wondering if there were any successful alteratives to the stock HPI #6820 oring because I currently can't seem to locate any anywhere.

Thanks

Is the Cyclone TC a good carpet racer? I'm planning on buying a touring car for the winter.
