Finally a heatsink/fan worthy to put on a Cyclone..
where the fins go with the airflow.. similar to LRP's brushless/brush motor heatsink.. made by Eagle Racing SP Motor Radial Pro. SP-2685-075 purple..
other colors are available.
The Fan is alot better on this one compared to the others from 3Racing.
only neg about it is that it's not so easy to clip on or off the motor..I found that the easiest way is to remove the motor and sliding it on. with brushless you don't really need to remove it anyways...

got mine from RainbowTen.. Champs has it as well...

I dont know if its been mentioned on this thread, way to long for me to read now, but when I originally bought a Cyclone S, 2 chassis broke at the rear axel, the second only 5 mins on track after a rebuild. I and the store owner I buy my kit from thinks there is a factory issue with the plastic chassis mold, im not the only one who has had this problem.
But at the end of the day, its a Cyclone S no more, all rebuilt with 3 Racing carbon fiber and aluminium parts. Way sexier now

Sime were you by some chance running an aluminium pivot block on the rear with the plastic chassis?

And if so did you put shims under the pivot block?

was only like $12.00 + shipping.
if you order overseas..you'll need to order other stuff to make it cost effective. the 1 part may cost at least $5 min... if you order other small stuff.. may still cost you $5 for s/h

Shops I frequently buy from overseas: I've never had a single problem with any of them...

do cyclone owners have issues with ball cups popping off?

I like Xray's design better, it doesnt use ball cups. Im stuck between an 007 EU or a cyclone moorespeed kit.
