yaya is true due to in the outdoor race it is very hard to find a small, short screw when fall down. some more it is titanium very hard to get and not cheap

My Cyclone was dialed tonight at are indoor asphalt track. This is the 2nd time running the car and it just keeps getting better every week I run the car. Couldn't be happier with how it runs for me. Only problem is that the center one way went bad tonight and started slipping so I ended up having to use the locked center pulley and kept the front one way. Time to order a new center one way.

Default RPM ball cups/Diff issues

Dou you guys know if the RPM/yokomo type ball cups fit the cyclone? Need to use these temporarily the original grey cups on the car is out of stock in our LHS.

Also my car is running awesome at the moment but yesterday i experienced something really weird with the car, after my first heat the car became taily nearly uncontrollable i found the the diff actually tightened up for some reason dont knw how any of you ppl experienced this?

I don't think this is normal. Things just happen sometimes. One ways take alot of beating thats for sure and cneter one ways use really small one way bearings so I think the do wear some. A buddy soend 40 bucks on a Tamiya center one way today only to have it go bad in 5 runs!!!!!!!!!!!!

My car ran the same times without the center one way so not a huge deal.

Just looked at Hara's car here at RCS. It's not the new version or anything. He is using the box stock one(only that it's all purple). There is no new rear diff, support mount, etc that I see on his Cyclone. He's using Excel parts for the spool and the aluminum rear peice(were the graphite holds the mid gears). Other than that, everything is stock out of the box.

Hara said that there is a Hara and Surikarn Edition Cyclone. Out at the end of april(he is not sure though because he said that he did not work on this project).

MUCH MORE Racing is also here. Lots of MMR goodies!

Kyosho is here with thier new ride-lots of red bling. Looks really nice. TEAM MMR are all here practicing.

Race: Thailand International Touring car Championship 2006 February 16-18.

Great! At my first glance at Hara's car at the Femca, he used Pro3 cvd's on the front and pro2 steel outdrives. He also had a different rear diff that looked unusual.

Im sure TITC will be a blast!

Yeah, that's a good idea but there's already a motor in his car. Was it really necessary for the pics?

If you look closely at the pics, you'll see that the screws are gone when the motor is in it. I guess he was working on it while he was taking pictures... but hey, who cares anyway!
