That looks similar to one of Hara's setups, the one I will start off with when I finally unleash the Cyclone on asphalt for the first time! It will be so awesome.

RainbowTen.. unfortunately they don't sell cyclone parts...
Overseas Try Precision RC or RcModel.

Racers typically run a spool with a locked center pulley.

I see you are developing a thicker carpet/foam chassis but what is the advantage or your asphault chassis?

Just wondering since I thought the stock chassis was designed with asphault/rubber tire racing in mind.

Either way I'm sure yours will be top quality I'm just asking since I'm considering purchasing the Cyclone SE.

Hi,

Im looking for the ratings of the 7 pairs of springs in the pro4 spring set, it says on a piece of paper that came with the set but i have lost it and cant find them online anywhere, so if anyone can list the ratings for each of the springs then i would be very gratefull.

this is what i think the ratings are:
blue 15
silver 16
pink 17
gold 19
white 20
yellow 22
red?

Anyone that knows the rating of red and a more accurate rating of the rest please post them,

thanks
