Hey guys, had to throw a major THANK-YOU out to everyone who's contributed on this thread. I ran my new BMI-equipped black-kit Cyclone last night for the first time at Maximus in Maine.
The thing was just plain GLUED to the carpet. I pretty much ran Tim Stamper's carpet setup, and it was just on. It looks like they forgot to mention that you get the "Better Driver" kit with the BMI chassis kit! 'Cause I'm normally a pinball bouncing off the boards, and last night I barely even hit a corner flapper!
This thing was just effortless to drive. I was coming from a Pro4, and it was night and day the difference in how hard I had to work to keep the car on the track.
So thank you to everyone who has contributed to this thread. Many of the suggestions and reccomendations here made this build go much smoother, and the setup information made available made my very first lap one of the most enjoyable RC experiences of my life.
Awesome car, awesome community!
But don't everyone go out and buy one - I like having obscure cars!!
Thanks for the props on the setup. It was tough since I was the only one at the gate with a cyclone and the track was bumpy but grippy.
The car is a dream to drive and I now have 3 setups that I can use depending on track conditions. BMI did a great job on this kit and it makes the car a different animal on the track.
If anyone has a question on the setup that I posted in the BMI thread, ask. I played around a bunch and the car reacts to the littlest adjustment.
Maybe with more practice and better luck, I can put up good results instead of just having a well handling car that can't finish a race.
