Hey guys, on a lighter side of things... I see these pics of Andy's car on the TITC thread and I see these nice purple screws.

Any idea where to get them? They match the car perfectly.

Talking Cyclone MTF?

Fellow Cycloners: I have been experimenting with the rear CF brace of the Cyclone, the one that goes over the middle shaft where the Spur gear goes on...well, since the bulk heads are split on the CYclone, and what binds them together is that brace, maybe by just using just 2 screws instead of the 4 or 6, it might allow a bit more flex/traction at the rear, like the Xray MTF deal...I have tried it now, and with only 2 screws, I get a bit of understeer at front. I then use all 6, and the understeer goes away...hmmmm...it seems that with only 2 screws you get more flex/rear grip, thus a bit of push up front- with the full 6, then ints back to the original setting and reaction...has anyone given this a try?

You shouldnt remove screws from this top plate. The 4 big ones are necessary to connect the 2 bulkheads together and the 2 small ones are just for extra support.

Im fairly sure they are made by square, Ive just ordered a load from rc-mushroom and am awaiting the delivery. I know someone whos had some before and they do match the car perfectly.

Here are the 3x8mm ones for the topdeck etc.

Hope this helps,

Phil.

you might want to work on your set up instead of removing the screws from the rear brace

Thanks Phil.

Now the main question is... Are they aluminum or Titanium?

For 3.30 for 4, they better be Titanium.

The stock ones tend to snap if hit hard, and it will ruin a perfectly fine Hub, since half the ball stud screw is stuck inside and there's no way of getting it out. The stock bones are also a bit fragile, and tend to bend quite easily. Get the heavy duty steel ones, or get the version 2 dog bones, which are bit beefier and stronger. Also, the rear diff- you must tighten it correctly, or you'll be pulling your hair out rebuilding it due to snapping diff screws or meltdowns...other than that, the Cyclone is great. All those issues are non-issues with the Hara and WCE kits, but you can can always upgrade parts and make them as strong and reliable as the WCE. Hope that helps...
Ok Cool thanks for the info yeah that will help me out a lot with the car.

just don't use those aluminum screws on lower chassis..especially the bulkheads, suspension mounts or high stress areas.... wounce they break..it's a pain to get them out. the pros only use aluminum screws on the upper deck.
