Oops, totally missed this post until now.

I dont really use the HB Mazda that often, it can be a bit overly aggressive, indoors anyway.

Okay, as without WC towers this setup would feel a little different...

3 hole, that setups sheet is abit funny like that as the ticks for the shock piston holes are set to one side and can be abit confusing some times.

In addition i was using the HPI Pro Competition shocks, this could be one of the reasons of a differance if your running the normal WCE shocks, although i believe adding a 2mm spacer under the piston inside the shocks alla hara guied will make them feel more similar....

I'm affraid i can't really help you, I've never raced foam in my life.
I'm quite sure that the American drivers that are more familiar with this class will be able to help though.

Thank you very much Kris

also what front CVD's were you using with the ver 3 spool? and what motor are you using?

i've only had 10 runs with my ver 2 spool (black 2 piece) and using the stock black HB cyclone CVD's with a novak 5800 motor and the outdrive on the spool has shown slight wear and tear.

If you use the Tamiya Anti-wear Grease (53439) on the dogbone pins & outdrives it will reduce the spool wear greatly... 6-9 months out of a spool (in Mod).

Just a friendly advice, if I were you, I'd save up and buy the Hara or Moorespeed version. They're stronger and handles like a dream.

A fellow racer of ours started with an S in Stock 27 turn and is still upgrading his car to a handle at the level of the 2 kit models I've mentioned. So far he's changed the chassis, top deck, bulk heads, shock mounts, center shafts and pulleys, rear diff, front spool, shock towers and he is still not finished.

I hope this helps.

I have the version 3 spool in my hara car right now. I am running the steel bones as the aluminum ones tend to shear off on any impact when running a spool. The newer MIP cvd on the worlds car might be slightly stronger..... but I would still look for another option.

RIght now just running a stock..... but it can still break the cvd bone with a spool. I agree, the version 2 spool chips away pretty quickly.

Hello all, need some advice with my BMI Cyclone. Iím running on carpet with CS22s in stock. The track is very tight and twisty (track overall is only 20m x 10m).

Has anyone got any suitable setups I could try? I guess I need something that would give me excellent steering for the tight stuff whilst keeping the rear planted.

I appreciate that some peeps have already been posting their setups but I think they are for bigger tracks using foams?

Any help would be really appreciated.
