Anyone?

spool will always put allot of strain on the front end. Just make sure you use allot of anti wear grease. I always re-clean and grease every 2 weeks before raceday. I used DCJ when I had my cyclone and I used grease everywhere to slow down the wear n tear. Also running less steering lock can help.

Has anybody tried Sprint2 parts on their Cyclone or Cyclone TC?? I would like to know if these HPI Rear Hub Set 2 & 3 Degrees Sprint 2 or any other sprint2 parts will fit.
Thanks

i don't believe they'll fix the cyclone arms - either the TC arms or the standard arms...

why would you wanna use them anyways, when toe-in in adjusted on the cyclones via the rear suspension blocks??

if you're concerned you're breaking too many - get either the 3Racing, Jet or HPI/HB aluminum rear hubs...that'll some most of your breakage issues...

I've used all three and there's no performance difference between any of the makers - matter of fact, i don't even use the composite ones on any of my cyclones (on my TCX, i went straight for the aluminum ones )

Questions??

Could anyone which ran before with TC on tight concrete tracks share with me about your setup, please?

Best regards

There is one on fleabay..

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Hot-Bodie...item5d33a51767

Didn't like the two way diff myself.. heavier and never used the one way..

Cant believe they are so hard to get now.. 3 racing also make a spool which is pretty cheap and works fine..
