With the rear end stepping out, you might want to make sure that the centre one-way bearing is not slipping. We run foam tires, and what we found is that when everything heats up, the bearing slips in the housing. The easiest way to check is to hold down the rear tyres, and if you can turn the front tyres, it is the centre one-way, after a run. A small drop of CA in the housing resolves this problem.

I know there were posts back in time talking about front belts from other cars which fits the Cyclone. I heard x-ray I think? Any other ones?

Other than this the car is extremely fast and has lots of steering. Mostly using Sorex 36's as this is what others are using with success.

Any suggestions???
Like Steve said add droop to the rear or reduce in the front. also check to make sure that your bearings are not binding up. This car has probably the best mechanical grip of any car in the market.

you can use rubber pads between the servo ears and the servo posts. That should reduce the force during a side impact; but then you have to shim the ballstud on the servo horn to be aligned properly again.

I've had one break, but I put it down to the case/ear being weakened by trimming the top half off for my pro4, not a design fault with the cyclone

Mine was slipping but I checked the shaft out and I could see the slip makes on it. I will have to check the bearing and maybe add a drop of CA.

Im pretty sure its got something to do with the nitro cars running as we race with them on our local track.
More than likely after the nitro cars runs the track picks up some traction and then you cars front end hooks up better and makes you car steer better and loosens up the back end because of that. I added the copper front swaybar to my car at are track and that pretty much stopped that problem.
