I'm getting the cyclone s soon. Which aluminum parts should I get. I'd like to have some bling,bling when I hit the track with it. I noticed the other guy mentioned motor mounts. But what else?

guys, what material is the motor mount from the original Cyclone kit?

a Red Cyclone Moore version would complement nicely the Hara and Surikarn kits

The mounts for the original kit, the Hara and Surikarn kits, and even the new molded S-model are aluminum.

My interest in the full-kit mounts is that they appear to offer very good access to the motor screws. Having run shaft-drive cars for the past couple of years, one of the things I was looking forward to in the Cyclone was the cleanliness of the motor-mount design.

Looking at the new tub-S kit, it doesn't seem as smooth as the originals, so I'd like to have those parts on the shelf when I go to build the low-end kit.

Now, given that the total cost of the tub-S kit plus the 3 bulkhead kits would be cheaper than the full-blown kits, why not just do them all the first time?

Weight.

The plastic SHOULD be lighter than the aluminum. It won't be as rigid, but I want to evaluate the car without them first. If it looks like it really needs those parts, I'll gleefully swap them in later.

AFTER the BMI chassis kit!!

Echoing what RC-Zombie said, it is definately the fastest and easiest car to drive given its pricetag. I raced in a very competitive stock class with it and it performed very well - I won the day, and that was just the car built to kit spec with no hopups. Very impressive car.

I've had a good response from people on rctech so this is a reminder that the auction for my as new Surikarn Cyclone ends today. (UK Based buyer preferred but international buyers welcome).

Bid are not too far away from hitting the reserve.

Ok, so I need a new spool before I race again and really dont wanna spend the money on one unless the drive cups are replaceable. I had read the v2 steel shafts will not work in the TIR spool. Is there a steel driveshaft that will work with the TIR spool?
