hey, idk if anyone knows..but


who is a good anodiser?

i want a lrp heat sink fan, but need it purple, i want the one zombies has, but at the same time, the lrp looks better (bigger fan, and just a plain bigger heatsink and cooling fins..... plus im all lrp, im getting a lrp sphere tc spec, the x-11 vector 13.5, and a sintered rotor...) so mite as well the heat sink lol


can i match the hb hpi purple? id want it unpolished prolly, i dont want it all shiney at all, i want it to look like the stock moore speed purple, which isnt shiney.. i say this because i was talking to zombies and he was telling me about all this

I just switched from Xray to the Cyclone. I prefer the Xray design, but the Cyclone ball cups won't pop off. I just don't like having to pop off cups as I seem to ruin them here and there.

If you want a car that is just as fast but has much more affordable parts I'd go with the Cyclone. Xray makes a great car but I was spending a ton on parts. Cyclone is just as fast, but cheaper to maintain.

and its not like u couldnt buy the captured rod ends from the xray if u like them so much and out them on the cyclone.. theres nothing stopping u other then money lol

but for me i have no probs, i mean after a while any ball cup will streach.... but those are cheap to replace if that happens

Ive never had a ballcup pop, just make sure you always carry spare ones with you just incase they get too sloppy.

when u threaded the rod ends where did u hold the cup?

when doing ANYTHING with ball cups, u ALWAYS try to use the part u thread, not the cup, as they will stretch.. and then have play


something i have learned...
