i Just ran my moorespeed for the first time tonight on carpet and it was soo awsome!

I tapped the board lightly and it snapped the front arm and C-hub, I went from 4 degree hubs to 6 degree and noticed NO difference, looks like I will be adding 4 degree aluminum C-hubs tonight and then posting up pics of my cyclone here!

You will see how to properly wire a cyclone for brushless/lipo.

i didnt feel like swapping out the c-hubs, im too tired

If you look hard enough, you'll see I mounted the powercap behind the motor! The switch on/off is in front of the Rx, the servo and ESC connections as well as the AMBrc have been shortened. I even shortened the sensor harness for the motor! I then took a black sharpie to the wires to give them a sleek stealth look!

I think its super clean! If your wondering, its a maxamps 5000mAh carbon pack w/ Lipo lead glued to the bottom to bring it up to 12 oz.

I would of take them sensor harness and ran it behind the speedo, and came around so it isnt out in the open

Id just move the sensor wire, run it in-between the motor and esc towards the middle of the car, and then to the sensor port, so it isnt as hanging out there

I dont have a esc at all yet... But I have pics so far on the page before this one

i shortened the sensor harness so short i can't move it anywhere else, I did this because I really like it there! I haven't had any issues yet but then again i've only ran 1 pack thru it

This thing is truley amazing, the only downside is I need to space the wheels wider to clear the rear shocks if I wanna layem down.

Just dremel the side of the bottom ball cup slightly, should give you enough clearance.

(Old trick from the pro4).
