ive raced the car a total of 15 times now. Worlds kit that is. Summernats weekend. and the rest local times. With the older cyclone/diffs they kept coming loose and i broke afew dif screws. So far i havnt broken a screw and it hasnt come loose. It must be the way you build it i guess.

What kind of motor you use? Power means a lot

LoL!!

In the time that I HAVEN'T broken a rear diff I've broken the following on my car...

2 x topdecks
1 x middle bulkhead (RHS)
1 x graphite bumper brace
1 x upper bulkhead

The irony is, the diff is beautiful, and I'm yet to break an arm, hub etc!!!

This is insane.. my Pro4 was a tank. But it seems I've only had bad bad bad luck with this car. This is more damage than all my years of RC put together!

FYI I run:
GTB + 3.5R
Spektrum gear and IB 3800's (wow.. these IB's are still going!)

My vanity forces me to add...

Not my fault!! - Spektrum just isn't working out for me. I'm finally going to pick up a micro and see if it does it. Otherwise I'm going back to HRS.
Last time the damn thing shut down I did a topdeck, bumperbrace and bulkhead in one go!!

(To be fair - The aerial was broken at the PCB, it's fixed now but I have no idea how it broke in the first place!)

Ok guys, I got a ton of pms about my Snowbirds winning setup. The car was freaking awesome turning the fastest laps of the weekend in stock 10.3s and
tqing(Schreffler) and taking the win with no car support other than Jason at Bmi's great products and help.

Here's the setup, schreffler ran a similar one. Just subltle changes to suit our driving styles.

Moorespeed BMI Cyclone
Notes are I ran the + 1.5 Xray hexes on my car with an extra .5 shim on the back. To make the car about 190 all the way around

I also ran the delrin diffs all the way around they are super lightweight and really durable. Ceramics throught the car. No graphite spur gear holder, thats extra weight. I also had to add 2 ounces to the car distributed evenly. I'll take a picture when I get the car back but here is one on rc50.com.

who can make this modification over United States?

It just looks like he has drilled the long outdrive bigger inside to take the xray diff screw....and made another external adjustment hole aswell.

Also looks like he is using the xray thrust bearings and springs to.....not sure if the other parts are xray but if looks easy to do and i never had problems with my xray diffs when i run sexray

low friction belt will help you to smoother your drive train. and it runing very quite compare to regular belt. it help you carry more smooth connering acceleration due to less drag.

He only had the belt on one of his cars by the end of the week; not sure if it was his Mod or 19T.
