I have been racing my Cyclone for two weeks now and I am very impressed with the car. The car is extremely easy to work on and drives very well. I have been running a one-way on carpet (waiting for my diff) and I can't complain. It has loads of turn-in and is very fast though chicanes. Plus, I have yet to break a single part, with the exception of one ball stud. And no tweak issues.

What track are you running your car at? I live in PA as well. I race at Frederick MD during the winter and want to try my car at Horshem in March.

The only cars I have been able to run with a one way is the FT TC4, RDX, and my Cyclone. THe Cyclone is the only car thought I have ever ran a double one way on and I like it or at least at the track I run at right now.

Anyone have purple aluminum steering knuckles Pm me if you would like to sell them. I'm in the hunt for some Square ones but Jet or HPI would be cool to. I found rear hubs no problem at Speedtech but the steering ones won't be in for a few more weeks.

I am running the car at Horsham, and I believe I am the sole owner of a Cyclone there. I've gotten quite a few people asking what car it is and checking it out.
