When you asked for someone to confirm… I when and measure it… This is the reading I got…. 2.75mm thick… we are talking about the bottom chassis plate aren’t we…. As the top desk is thinner…..

my original cyclone is 2.5mm, and my hara is 2.75mm

with both cars sitting side by side the hara chassis is noticably thicker...

edit: yes the bottom chassis plate, I haven't checked the top deck

According to my measurements, my Hara edition chassis (bottom plate) is 2.5mm thick - using digital verniers. Also, has anyone noticed that the battery slots are about 5mm wider than the actual cells?

Was the standard cyclone like this?

i have seen some carbon fiber have tolerances of + or - 10% of the thickness.the higher quality materials are + or - 5% of the thickness but even at that,you will have variations.i guess its just tough to hold the exact thickness when they lay it.

yes,my stock cyclone cell slots are longer than the cell.i usually cut them a little longer in my chassis kits but they made them a little longer than they really need to be.i do this on my kits because the edge of the cell has a smaller radius than the corner of the cell slots so you need to lengthen them to clear the corners of the cell.im sure there reasoning is the same.

I thought about using the T2 battery peices to hold my cells in on the chassis. As soon as I get some I will try it and let you all know how it works out.

My Surikarn lower chassis plate is 2.49~2.50mm. My front shock tower is about 3.30mm. And my rear tower about 3.33mm.

There probably doing it for two reasons.. One is a tuning aid.. we have it on oval cars.. we move the batteries in and out to adjust the way the car transfers weight.. also with the way cells are going, come are larger then others..

Has anyone experienced the shock collars moving during a run as they seem a little loose?
Is there anything I can do to them to tighten them up on the thread?

Thanks

Tim

you can also use blue blue thread-lock on it.

that is due to no O-ring to hold them in place.
I've replaced mine with the shock collar from the Pro-4 that has the O-rings and they look better...they're purple.

What do people think of the new HotBodies Bodyshells?
As some of you may know they've been in development for a while now, in the hands of Andy Moore and other UK Hotbodies drivers such as Ben Cosgrove and Jonny Bowdon etc.
Cant wait to try mine out, they seem to be alot more aerodynamic than the Protoform versions.

For those of you that havent seen or heard about them heres a link...
