In general terms, a one-way gives lots of steering all the way through a corner, while the spool gives lots of steering on the mid/exit of a corner. A one-way is almost always fastest on carpet rubber, but difficult to drive consistently. Most people end up running a spool and setting it up to enter the corner well.

SWEET!
These are the same arms that come standard with the Cyclone S. They are more flexible than the graphite arms. This helps produce more traction. I ran these last year outside on low-traction asphalt.

You have to be careful when running the softer arms. The graphite arms will stay true until they break. The "high traction" nylon arms will take a big impact without breaking, but the arm will not be true anymore. It will bend or get twisted causing the car to do weird things. Depending on how the arm gets damaged, it can change your toe, camber, caster and droop settings.

If you run the "high traction" arms just be sure to check to make sure things are okay after a big impact and you'll be fine.

I agree


I just got done shoe gooing my servo in... A local racer here (Scotty) shoe goo's his servo farther forward so he can fit a bigger RX on the chassis easier.... So I did the same, had to make a new servo horn, but I have a ton of room now, I can have a full size spektrum RX (the grey one) and my LRP TC sphere on the chassis long wise (so no elec's hang off the chassis)

Mine is done the same way. I can't wait to run my car for the first time. My Novak powered Cyclone is waiting to put the power down.
