Yeah, I'm familiar with that, but it's the first time I've seen a "Peak" driver using "Orion" products. I know that other that the decal, they are the same products.

Seeing how pretty much every world champion has their edition car made, I would think that at some point, there will be an Andy Moore something.

Hey Guys,

Ran the Cyclone for the first time over the past week and it is a very good car. I used to drive a 415MSX and there is a substantial difference with the steering and grip available on the Cyclone. I am already as fast if not faster with the Cyclone then I was with the 415MSX. :-)

But, like with the 415, I still get plenty of grit in my diffs causing me to rebuild it every 4-5 runs or so. I saw a picture of this diff cover used by Hara on his tutorial of how to build a Hotbodies Cyclone and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas where I might be able to get one??



Thanks in Advance

You can buy them, I forget which company sells them, but it's much easier to just make your own. Just cut a circle out of a vinyl sticker sheet, that's basically what it is.

Hmmmmmm, I may have some lying around. If they are the same ones that are made for the 415, then that would be from Atlas most likely.

I will see what I can come up with. Thanks!

Try here, but this place removes parts from there website if there out of stock. So if you can find them here later, this is probably why.

What size are the pivot balls that fit into the shock caps? I want to switch from the HPI nut style shock mounting to the Tamiya/Xray style where the ball inside the cap is threaded. Thanks.

Default Upgrade Time

Just drove my brand new Cyclone this weekend. Our track is outdoor asphalt, in sunny/hot south Florida, with mid-low traction. Car was awesome. I broke all my personal records, and no one could keep up with the car. Handles awesome and goes fast through the corners and out with very smooth acceleration and shoots straight to where you want it to go. We run brushless 4.5 or 5.5 systems w/ Orion 4800mah Lipo packs. Cars are very fast out there, but the cyclone was just a notch ahead in handling out of the box. Now, I have been thinking of getting a spool for my car...will a front spool work with the one way middle pulley, or will I have to change it to a solid one? Also, what upgrades will be good to enhance the car's durability and performance? Also, need some good set up sheets for the car in outdoor asphalt, hot, med-low traction...thank you
