The TC5 worked killer for me on asphalt and I had it going pretty well on carpet.

Scotty has been fast on asphalt and carpet with his so I figured if you can't beat em join em. (but I did beat him for the last carpet race in stockton) I will have both cars to do back to back testing. I will run which ever I feel is faster for certain tracks

I cant really complain about the cyclone, I fixed the diff screw problem (thanks to scotty) and I will try some new parts up front and see if that will take more abuse so I can actually finish

You just couldnt resist the purple is all though.......

I will still have the TC5 but it's looking like more of the runs will be with the cyclone. I will need a Pdub bumper for my cyclone and the TC5 if I'm going to keep it around. I also wanted to catch up to Marco's in cars owned....LOL

Im putting a ball diff up front on my moorespeed. I need parts but I can't find the copper washer 12x10x.1mm!!!

or some diff washer that measures 12x10x.3mm, it sucks because I don't wanna run the diff loose or too tight in the bulkheads.


Oh and do you guys know if the titanium coated diff screw HOT61089 includes the T-nut? If not can I just use an HPI t-nut?

lol, Black cyclone for STLNLST, is that by choice, or? I want a black cyclone, I just would rather spend money on my trucks right now.....

Good luck finding the P dub for the cyclone, I just ended up using a T2 bumper, I got sick of waiting Unless you know where to get them?
