Hey Leini, which servo did you use and did you just use one side of the servo mount?

Hey benoitrdv

The springs Im using are the new white springs for the Yokomo BD. Up front is a green spring and in the rear is a pink spring. I dont have the spring rates yet but the ones on my car are like a med/Hard spring they are around the same rate as the HPI silver and Gold spring, this is just a guess.They seem to calm the car down some Im going to get more springs Im going to try the Orange springs they are a little heavy'er Im going to put those up front here is the Yokomo spring chart below

As i'm about to change chassis in near future and at the moment im looking on cyclone, as it seems to go fast and parts are not so overpriced as its for xray.
How ever, i would like to know how is a parts wear on cyclone when runing mod? (Im gonna use it for rubber asphalt/carpet)
At the moment i have fk05, got it last summer, and so far have changed only one set of belts.
What is durability and liftime of cyclone compared xray?
From what i have heard, diff outdrives and cvd's wear out on hpi?

Steering knuckles are the weak point in the car. A P-Dub bumper or a modified Buds TC3 bumper will help but even the slightest hit on the knuckle and it's a cracked. Other than that I find the car to be as strong as any out there. I run carpet/foam.

jag is right.the knuckles break when you look at a pipe
i have to say though,they are much easier to change than a c-hub or arm so i really dont mind.i run mod and also brushless 4.5 with my cyclone and all i have replaced on the car was 3 left steering knuckles.nothing is worn out or tatered yet and i have been running a 7x1 for about 2 months with it and i just started running the brushless system.i replaced the aluminum cvd's on the front with the steel ones at the same time as putting the mod motor in.i have not bent 1 yet.

Default centre one-way stuck to layshaft!

centre one-way stuck to layshaft!

I've only run the car on 2 occasions and the centre one-way has stuck to the layshaft forming a locked pulley!

Anyone got any suggestions for removing it without causing any damage?

I'll probably return it to the UK Distributer (Mirage) if I suspect it's damaged.

Cheers.

the only way I would do it is to loosely put it on top a vise and lightly hammer the shaft out...

I don't like my chances of doing that without causing any damage.

I might just send mirage an e-mail to see about sending it back.

Has anyone else had this problem?
