I have a TIR Cyclone spool for sale. Paid $35 for it. Will let it go for $25 shipped. Used it for about a month.
PM me if interested. Will only ship to the US unless you pay actual shipping. Paypal only.

honestly. go yokomo bd you will be much happier. not mocking cyclone owner's but i know about 6 people that are having problems with tweak half way through a race without touching anything. however this is not to say that all are like this. also the new one is due out soon that is suposed to have inprovments.

Tweak???
Weird, I've never experienced it with mine.

Just to say that this car is more reliable than a 415 IMO.

the cyclone is in my oppinion the best car out right now.i have run almost all the popular cars out there and i have decided to stay with the cyclone.the chassis is perfect for asphalt racing.it will be too flexible for foam tire carpet racing.this is why i will be releasing a carpet chassis for the car.every car on the market is too flexible out of the box for carpet.the T2 has got some serious issues right now so i am avoiding that car like the plaige.the MI2 EC car and the cyclone are really the only cars i think interest me right now.i have got to tell you though,i have not had 1 issue with tweak unless i give the car a good hit.i have broken only 2 steering knuckles and that was from good hits.the car is easy to work on and the quality is hands down the best i have seen from anything out there.

Iíve used my Cyclone about ten times now and have only experienced tweak once. And that was from hitting the barrier VERY hard. It was the kind of hit were something should have broke but the car was sound. VERY pleased.

Too many people get tweak on the brain!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My opinion is if you don't hit anything and the car is built correctly it cannot tweak by just running it.

As for the get a Yoke thing.................Not the answer and in the state support is lower than whale sh!#@#@ so getting parts is not really easy. Not one of the big distributors carry the parts and that normally means stay away from the car. You need parts to run.

protc3 I have found that the Cyclone is really good on asphalt and thats with only 3 complete packs thru my car as the other runs I either had radio issues (broke a spring inside the radio on the steering wheel) and the other heat I broke on the first lap because of the massive smack to the wall that I gave the car. all my fault to. Car responds to changes very well and is just very smooth overall. This alos got to be the easiest car I have had to work on to.

Cyclone is the best car to buy...
It is very very fast...
It is very smooth
It never brakes
AND IT NEVER GETS TWEAKED!!!

My previous car was a pro4 and I am really impressed by the cyclone.
I have run it 10-15 times (60-90 bats) and have changed NOTHING on the car.Only tires and two bearings,nothing else.

I think it is the best choice...
