Everytime I talk to him its like a week away from being ready. So I'm kinda in a holding pattern. This is gonna be something that everyone has to have in their Cyclone. Its gonna be a big seller.

Looking forward to BMI spool when released...

on the Japan website Moore's typed set-up has been posted..
http://www.hpiracing.co.jp/contents/...ore060708C.pdf

it's slightly different than his hand written set-up.
http://www.hotbodiesonline.net/pdfs/...ore_worlds.pdf

I used his set-up over the weekend...overall it handled really good...
could have used a tad more steering in the technical sections of the track..

I just recieved the tub chassis and upperdeck set.
very nice..
might do well for carpet.
chassis is about the same stiffness as the stock CF.
alot heavier.

can't wait to give it a try...

RC-Zombie - you say a lot heavier? I put both my chassis on the scales (albeit with different electronics) and it was identical actually. Having said that, I have a brushless system in my surikarn edition compared to a brushed modified motor and ESC. Would be a little bit different, but certainly not a lot heavier.

Basically he has a 1.5mm spacer underneath each of his suspension blocks.

How does front arm sweep affect the front of the car? Say like moving form a 2.5 block to a 2 etc.

Less aggressive steering.

Apart from the colour and the sticker on the end of the box there is no difference whatsoever.

The Hara edition is prone to glitching...

lawtonlosi- I would like to see your Cyclone at the regionals if you make it. I will be there but not running TC.. I wanna see what the car looks like up close. The majority of the guys runn the Xray T2 here. Also If you do make it to regionals you better stock up on parts for the Cyclone. HTSA does not have parts for that car. You might be lucky to find the suspension arms since they are the Pro 4 arms. This is a FYI for you.

Carlos

Thanks for the heads up. A couple of us just went 8 hours to Memphis to run and stocked up before. The car is laid out kinda similar to a t2. It is the first touring car I have had that I have not struggled with.
