Why they put rugs between tire and warmer?
I guess is something about traction compound, but i don't understand why they did.

It's to help soak up some of the tire additive.

I just got a Cyclone, I must say I am very impressed. Anyways, are they any certain tips and tricks for a new Cyclone owner that I should do? I will be running on carpet, so I need to get a spool or diff. Thanks.

build the diff with 2 internal bearings instead of 1 and 2 spacers per the manual. don't be concerned about the diff pulley wobble..it's normal and will center itself when running. new narrower pulleys are in the works and should be available early next year.

welcome aboard and happy racin to you...

Ok, I'll check that. Also, will the HPI spool for the Pro4 fit in the Cyclone?

The Pro4 spool will fit..but you'll end up adding approx 3mm of shims on both sides.... the cyclone spools is already available... Speedtech has them instock.

If you want to play around with the roll center you will need to shave some material off the FR block. Try racing it with shims and you will see what I mean.

As far as the pro4 diff goes Im ussing one beacuse I had all the parts all ready. So It only cost me $4.95 for an A-495 pully.

I purchased some PDub upper shock mounts, Man those things make tuning shock position a breeze and work perfect with our shocks.

Got the FR block shaved down already so it will not hit the linkages. Also have the Tamiya-style mounting.
Now I need to get the front diff or spool.
