Yeah, it is recommended to run a longer hinge pin in the rear.

Jason recommended T2 front hinge pins to me...but I was unable to get any of those...so we just got some tamiya hinge pins which wound up being another 2 mm longer or so and they seemed to do the trick just fine.

the kit is cost about 139.99 it include f/r shock tower, top deck, middle deck, and lower chassis, and 4 chassis standoff. i used the TA05 titanium coated hinge pin the length is about 49.7mm i cut it until 48mm to fit perfect. and i have try to used the 415 hinge pin about 46mm i cut until 45mm on front too it more smoother and strength than the stock cyclone hinge pin.

Well, considering me, Andy, Jon, Thomas, and Ronald all shared the same 2 shock oil bottles near the end of the week: Yes, I am sure about the oil.

Let us know how it works!

The IIC track was a bit different than your standard track... the traction never really came up that high so there's no gaurantee that the setup will work perfectly for ya at your home track...but I suppose it's worth a shot

I'll definately post my background about the set-up.
Which traction did you use?

Couldn't agree with ya more there Steve. My home track had more traction than the IIC. My biggest change was the front suspension. I had to do a lot to make the car turn more. I might be spinning out on the home track now.

If it works the same as it did in Vegas, oh boy.

And Steve, I forgot to thank you for the help at the IIC. THANKS!

A quick question.... the Pro4 bumper and Cyclone bumper are the same, correct? Asking because I want to order a P-dub bumper and they only list it for the pro4. Thanx for the help. Sorry, cyclone noob....
