im running whichever one works best!!!

actually, im taking the Cyclones, plus maybe a backup something... using a oneway, as i never got comfortable with a spool, really... i do have one, just in case.

not a big fan of the HPI ballstuds, as i have broken a few at our local track with the solid boards we have... i was gonna order the Square Ti ones, but they are hard to find in stock at a reasonable price to convert 2 cars.

Thats cool. I'm starting with a Spool cause I don't think the bite will be there for a oneway, plus I like brakes lol

Thanks in advance.
going to 2mm shims gives the car more steering.the 4mm stock setting pushes like a dog with a spool

i figured it out the hard way with the novak 4.5.i went down the straight,and kept going into the pipe brakes didnt do anything.i went to 2mm shims and it was night and day difference.i went to a slight bit of anti squat and got a little more entry steering and it clamped the car on power.car works great and responds to changes very well.even minor ones.
