Iv decided to make the switch to a Cyclone, going to get a WCE. What parts are needed for the car apart from the usual spares like arms, hub carriers etc?

Cheers

Dan

Im looking for some Aluminum Steering blocks and C hubs other than those put out by Jet Racing or 3 Racing. I was told the T2 Steering blocks were a direct fit so the team Tamale ones are a possibility but I was looking for other solutions...

www.precisionrc.com - has some jet racing knuckles (black, blue, or purple)
www.rcstation.com - has some 3racing knuckles (purple)

I'm not sure where to get C Hubs though. The 3racing hubs aren't available yet but are coming... when I don't know.

I was aware of those but I was looking for different ones. I have heard alot of bad feedback regarding the quality of the Jet and 3 racing products.
Thanks

why the need for aluminum c-hubs and knuckles? just makes your car heavy.
you don't see Hara, Surikarn, or Moore using them...
if you're concern is breakage... highly recommend the P-dub bumper instead.

I guess if you are as good as those guys, you could drive a car made of glass and not have a problem. I, however, have a problem with boards jumping in front of my car during a race. As far as making it heavy, My buddy has one of those Tamiya 415s that has no problem going fast and it has every aluminum part in the book. The parts support at my local track for the Pro4/Cyclone is no longer there so durability in a major concern.
Now that I have explained why I would like these aluminum parts, If anyone can help me in locating these parts it would be greatly appreciated

I'm no expert driver..and the track I race on is full of boards and dots and beat up cars badly. if you're looking for durability..aluminum c-hubs is not the answer. you will only end up breaking arms. Something has to give. durability...invest in a $10 p-dub bumper before you go out and spend $60+ on aluminum parts. Trust me... I've done the aluminum and it's a waste of $$$$ and the only place to place to get aluminum parts is overseas. and remember too..once those aluminum C-hubs get bent... they stay bent.
