I see what you mean - I must add, that my one-way and layshaft were both bought through the UK market (my car wasn't) so I had UK warranty on them.

Hey all I spoke to this guy on RC-tech his name is Art Jensen he's a really cool guy, he make's this aluminun tweak plate for touring cars. The one out currently is the one for the Xray touring car and all the Xray guys said its a really great tool for getting your car tweaked right.


I believe the Xray team guys use it with great results Im definitely going to get one for my Cyclone if anyone is interested pm Art Jensen. awesome product for sure

you place the car on top and screw it down onto the plate , the plate has all the cut outs for the bottom of the chassis so it sits flush and perfectly flat on the plate, once you secure the car to the plate you tighten up the top deck.


but Art can explain it better than I can

Here is a pic of the one for the T2. The one for the Cyclone will be similar. It has holes in the bottom so you can loosen and retighten all the screws on the chassis as well as the top plate. The point of the tool is to make everything "square".

I had a BAD day at the track...


Broke my topdeck, bent the RHS curved bulkhead sideways.. snapped the head off a ball socket which ruined a rear hub too..
Ejected 1 battery and bent another...

This has to be my single worse day at the track EVER...

Although on the upside i did trim 1 second off my laptime and i think there's more gains to be had. And my HD driveshafts are still perfect..
Just a shame the running got stopped early..
All due to a spektrum shutdown..

Had anyone experience the rear bulkhead bending sideways before? perhaps i should get one of those alu braces... I assume the impact which broke the topdeck at the split on the motor side, also send enough sideways force to bend the bulkhead.. v.strange.

Is this a common break? I might upgrade to a straight version instead.. (Square make one i believe..)
