im sure it would work very well.being that you have tons of traction,your not really looking for mechanical traction through chassis flex.the stiffer chassis setup will make the car react to set up changes very well.

As far as the team, I can find out what the deal is. I run with a few guys that work at HPI.
I have a spare BMI carpet conversion kit for HB Cyclone. I run on asphalt and have never needed it. If anyone is interested PM me for offers. Its like brand new, and includes chassis- looks like 4mm at least, and top deck, which also looks about 4mm. Its counter sunk in certain areas, like where bulkheads go, and looks very nice and professional. Maybe $99 shipped? OBO...

I'm gonna convert everthing to the Bmi lower chassis and use the stock top plate, guess i kinda have to because my lower stock chassis is chip really bad and it kinda of hard to get good ride height or up travel setting.

When I get home tonight I will see if I have a setup written down for my Cyclone when I ran it at Frederick. If I do I will post it.
