Default Shock pistons???

Which other manufacturers pistons will fit in the HB/HPI shocks? I am looking for some 3 hole 1.1mm alternatives.

tamiya pistons work in the HB shocks..

also Litemodz is making some pistons to fit the HB shocks with a taper on them to either speed up or slow down the rebound on the shock..

Hi guys! Now that I got my new TCX, i'd like to continue a not so old project of mine: Building something we can call Cyclone FWD. For this prototype, I will need some parts of my old TC but also some parts of the TC-D...

Does somebody know where I can get this kind of parts? I live in Europe and here we can't have neither the kit nor the parts of the TC-D... It seems that only our japanese friends have these parts in their shop...

So I'd like to know if any of you has a shop to recommend or something similar, please?

Default Selling my unused hopped up TC

Could not find a track in upstate NY to run my car. If you know of any let me know before this sells. See below.



$275 shipped

New Unused Hot Bodies Cyclone TC. Never driven or powered up with electrics. This is an actual TC, not some hopped up Cyclone. Never used except for display.

Original box manual and spares included.

Has following desirable hop ups:

HB Titanium Turnbuckles with HPI HD Ball Cups $20
HB Purple Aluminum Servo Mounts $40
HB Carbon Fiber mid plate $12



This will sell in 7 days since it is listed in an auction. Would love to sell to a dedicated fellow rc enthusiast here.

chevyss84@gmail.com for questions or pics.

Thanks -Eric

RAn my car last night since the pm's and emails were BS. The car is dialed. Finished 3rd in 17.5 Played around with the 6 degree caster blocks for more on power steering on the sweeper. Worked out great. Also been running the car without any front arm sweep. Car feels better (IMO) with the hinge pins straight.

I am kinda the same.. I run 0 or 1 sweep in the front.. if the track is more technical I may go up to 1.5.. I don't like how the car feels with anything higher. Weird when you see the pro's setup, always seems to have allot more sweep. I only run 17.5 maybe thats why I don't tend to need it. It makes the car (well my car) feel like it has too much steering and unpredictable at the last half of the corner.

Could somebody point me towards a how-to install a front NT1 diff in the back of my cyclone ? I'd like to know everything there is to know about that before maybe buying the parts.

I need the part #335000 , right ?

What else ? shims ? pulley ? which brand ?

Thanks a lot for your time.
