I have to admit - i am a little hesitant to buy simply because i didn't have a great experience with belt maintenance on the old schumacher. How do the belts hold up in the cyclone? Especially running outdoors?

Other than that - it looks like the one for me..
The belts are fine. I never had any problems running my Cyclone outdoors. I'll have to get another one

Here are some pics of my new Surikarn Edition. I'm still waiting for the new blue anodized Pivot Blocks.

the 110 spur worked great with no issues

Hey Joey, are those Square Tamiya shock collars on your car? I don't like the stock ones.

Those are HPI shock collars. They are just anodized TAMIYA blue. I anodized all the aluminum TAMIYA blue. A buddy up in Sacramento, CA has the car now

First night on my surikarn wasnt bad, I qualified 2nd in 19t. The car reacted well to changes. I pretty well ran a kit setup, with 40wt, the front rollcenter raised under the pivots, gold front ae springs and blue ae rear springs. I was having a problem with keeping the rear end planted. Any changes right off hand to try next time on a low bite surface?

Has anyone made up a printable gearing chart? It would be handy to have one in my pit box for easy access.

I read you were running a 110 spur without problems, about what is the smallest you have ran?
