I've never tried running a center oneway without a front oneway.
What is the difference with having both and having only one? Would a front oneway be more effective than a center oneway given a choice?

The car looks great. Are those the jet spindles?

Ok I give up and will just have to ask.... Does anyone know where I can find a standard parts list for the Cyclone? An exploded view of the parts would be even better.

Thanks,

Paul

Hey guys who is using 2mm shims inside the shocks like on Hara's building website? Which effects on the car?
Do you put the shims inside all the shocks or just on the front/rear?

With the newer style shock shafts I put those shims in all four shocks so that the bottom eclip slot does not accidentally catch the oring at full shock extention.

Ok thanks... maybe I should have been a little more specific. I don't have a Cyclone I have the S. So I don't have a Cyclone manual. I'm trying to get a list of parts together for my LHS to order for their stock and may want some Cyclone parts rather than the S plastic ones. Since right at the moment I'm the only one running a Hot bodies TC I can pretty much pick what I want.

They are the Jet Spindles and rear hubs but I dont know how they are yet, The car is a virgin. I have heard some bad feedback from one friend but it could of been a one time thing.

I will be interested to see how they do on carpet for ya. If they hold up well there, they should be fine for concrete. I did try the t2 spindles and they would well. You just have to just the inner hole.

I found that when I tried aluminum spindles on my car I would tend to break ballstuds instead...

I clocked a lot of stuff at the IIC with the P-Dub Bumper with my car with all stock parts on the car otherwise and didn't break a spindle or any other front end part...

I HIGHLY recommend the P-dub bumper in favor of the aluminum spindles in the front.

In the rear I ran aluminum hubs only because they had 1' of toe in built into them.

Ah ok. I do need a pdub bumper for sure. I broke some spindles but it was operator error, I had too long of screw in the bottom and it was binding up against the axle... so i could breath on it and bust it. I will probably get the pdub bumper and some t2 spindles since they dont come with rear hubs, I have plenty of those.

Thanks again Steve
