Hi Guy's

I just thought I would let you all know that I not only had my personal best lap but also fastest race times at my local club on saturday night. I was so impressed with the Cyclone WCE. I added 1.5 shims under the pivot blocks and I ran Hara springs. ride hieght of front 5 and rear 5.5. Droop was 5 and 5.
2-bad (peter) helped me with some set ups and I run a 7 x1 orion OJ motor.
I had so much steer and grip with the car. All I can say is I wish I run this car a year ago instead of the Tamiya MRE. I had lots of on and off power steer and I found it was great under brake.
I am not braging here, I just wanted to let you guy's know how impressed I am with the cars first full race outing.
Thanks Guys
Addam

Good to hear Addam. Glad you are so happy with the car... even if I knew you would be.

Camber link studs are either 10.3mm or 13mm depending on the number of spacers you use.

The Ballstud for the steering block is 13mm.
