This one from Daisuke Yoshioka is the only one I've tried and I really liked it as it drove like a 1/12 scale it was that good (outdoors/asphalt/foams).

Is the left/right weight difference that big when switching from NiCD to LiPo?

How will the car drive?

Because I've switched to the Serpent S400, I'm selling my Cyclone Hara. It's on ebay now; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=320207698996

Nope, I have well over 250 cycles on my 1st one, and the newer one (30 cycles at max) Performs the same, still takes in over 5000 mah, punch, all that is no different.....

Some people say the plat is better, but I dont think so at all.............

I've used Trakpower as well as the Orion 4800 and the Orion 3200 Carbon. I found the Trakpower to operate the best out of the lot, but there wasn't a lot between the Orion 4800 and the Trackpower. I felt that the Orion 3200 Carbon was the worst. Was simply lighter, but in a sanctioned event you must add more weight to the car, which means that you just have a pack with less runtime.

All parts fitted in fine with the Cyclone and the extra size of the 4800 Orion and 4900 Trackpower made it a more snug fit in the Cyclone which I preferred also. :-)

how do you get over 5000 mah on a lipo if they never get taken down to zero??? The most my 4800 has ever taken has been 2900mah and that was after two practice laps a full heat of mod and a couple of laps afterwards.

Not to worry though....I hear that a Speedworld local may be rockin' a cyclone with orion lipo's this year......STAY TUNED!!!!
