or lower front arm mount / higher rear arm mount
anti-dive for the front makes the front-train stiffer when cornering. pro-squat for the rear makes the car lean easier backwards when acclerating. Had you for the rear suspension placed 1.5mm on the front, and 1mm on the rear arm mount, you'd get anti-squat which makes the rear more flat when accleating.

I ran 19t rubber on carpet this weekend and it was pretty fun. I ran some old 27's which were giving up a lil on lap times compared to the new 24s etc people were running. The carpet is low bite.

What tires do yall recommend, setups etc?

Thanks

Im starting out with a set up that Jason (protc3) gave me for asphalt ,its very good.I m running it as a base setup at the birds. I ran it a few weeks ago at our snowbirds warm up with RP30's and was very good ( but i ran it with a 3.5 brushless motor)

For everyones information here are the rates in lb/in, the springs are refered to by Hara Products in kgf/mm, which would make seeing how these springs fit in with the HPI spring set difficult.

SS-Yellow-12.8
S-Grey-13.9
M-Black-15.0
H-Purple-16.2
SH-Red-17.3

Talking

You need to replace the stock balls studs for the Ti ballstuds. You will need them for the rear, for the ones that go on the rear hubs. The stock ones snap easily and can mess up a good hub, since half the screw will be stuck inside. Also, beware of the rear diff screw snapping, or it slipping or melting...you must get it right or else you'll have diff pblms with the Cyclone. However, the WC edition kit seems to be holding up very nicely for me. Its really strong and has taken the abuse very well. I'm happy Hb fixed this issue. Other that, the Cyclone is very strong and reliable.
