I went back out there tonight with my car again after making a couple adjustments to get rid of the loose rear end and pulled some consistent lap times even with bad luck and motor trouble.

I loosened the diff a little bit as well as adjusted the droop to 7mm in front and that made the trick. The rear droop stays at 6mm. The car is now hugging the corners much better and doesn't take off on the rear end. Thanks guys!!

Hiya Tim, good to hear youve switched cars from yokomo to hotbodies !!

Tim on the tracks your going to be running this year dont worry about the oneway, use the pulley from the kit and build your spool.

Have you seen the Litten tree is closed in town..

How long have you been using yours?

Jimmy, I'm guessing this is a new HB part as I haven't seen anything like it anywhere else.

Ran my Cyclone for the 3rd time now and it is just so nice to run. On the asphalt it is the best car I have tried so far. Smooth and consistant. Car does what I want it to do and adjusting it to do so has been pretty easy so far. Can't wait til the outdoor season gets started so I can try it on my tracks.

The car is awesome on carpet, even with a one-way.
