when buying bmi cyclone chassis go ahead pick up those T2 fronthinge pins this is now a need, if you hit or be hit chances are the whole suspension is going to pop out

I would like to announce the launch of the Cyclone Depot.

http://www.cyclonedepot.com/

Please take a look and see what you think.

The site is not a forum but a news and resource site for Cyclone owners. We have already put some of the setup sheets people have been posting on there. When ever we put them up there we will include credit to whom they belong. If anyone is running the Cyclone at regionals and nationals and would like to write up a race report please feel free to do so. Also, anyone that has tips or mod we welcome them as well. I would like to compile a new owner help list that when a new racer comes on the forum we can just send them to a link of the things they need to know. A future addition will probably be a gallery. We hope everyone finds it useful.

Billy Caldwell

Billy has put a lot of work into this site. And its going to be great. We have HPI on board with it so it should help make it that much better. This is a site built for races by racers. If anyone has anything they would like to see or any thoughts to help out, please let me or Billy know.

No doubt, thanks Andy from HPI for all the help. Steve for everything he has done. Everyone who has sent a setup or info. Billy for putting in all the effort to do it. And major thanks to Billy for talking me into buying this car.

Macros, got it and it will be up shortly. Thanks man.

Thanks for the kind words Jason. Once I get some cash together I will be getting the carpet chassis before I hit carpet. I gotta wait a bit on that though.
