hey guys just thought i'd update on our australian nationals held yesterday. it was a cyclone 1 and 2 in stock 17.5. I took tq but my other mate got me in the third final to give him the win and me second. The difference was he was running no tyre additive. My bad. But we were the fastest on the track all weekend with matching best laps of 18.9. No one else got into the 18 second bracket!! Oh also he has the tc and i have the original black so goes to show both are very fast just require different settings!!

Lately I've been running an older style chassis (fits my weight plate better ), but they require a different top deck setup. I run the TC topdeck cut where the belt tensioner is, or the older style upper deck. With the TC chassis, I run the TC top deck uncut. Each of those combos are similar in feel. I usually always run an FRP mid plate that is uncut. I find the car works in a wider range of conditions this way.

Haha ok, ive never actually measured on of the older chassis plates because ive always just assumed they were 2mm but oh well. I prefer the feel of the TC chassis anyway.

I broke nothing on the first outing, but yesterday I broke 3 knuckles, a c-hub, and a cv bone. I am going to buy more knuckles when they come back in stock and build up a web of shoo-goo in the area that they always break, is anyone else doing this? Any other ideas? Thanks
try Xray T2 knuckles with a .025" shim to fit in the C hub

or get a Parma T2 bumper

Or use the older style parts which dont have graphite in them. From the S or the Hara/ Moore edition.

Great job! I have been running my Cyclone S in RCGT and 17.5 and it is always at the top 3. My TC/Moorespeed is already a proven car. The Cylone platform is just a great all around car.

Great work! Were you running the TeamWave speedo? If so, how did it compare against the other timing advance guys (Tekin, LRP, etc)? Thanks.
