Has anyone tried the tub chassis from the S on the Cyclone? I am just curious as to if anyone has how it performed. I have the BMI chassis the stock chassis and the plastic chassis already.

Thanks,

One of my friends ran the cyclone S chassis, but he broke it after a nice crash, and bought a graphite bottom, but he still has the plastic top deck, and he car NEVER tweaks

His car ran fine with the plastic chassis, I liked it, couldnt really tell a difference

I had a cyclone S but i snapped the back off on only about the third meet, and i was working out all the issues with the S as it was still new then and there are a number of things you have to be careful of. The tub chassis is a lot heavier.

I reckon mine snapped cause i had aluminium pivot blocks on the car. The RF FR blocks were still plastic. But the aluminium pivot block was a very tight fit. Further to this the plastic pivot blocks of the S are raised so you need to shim the aluminium pivot blocks accordingly to match the plastic RF FR blocks.

i need a new 6 cell chassis, lol

and i want brand new only, as i want no tweak...

has anyone tried to use the 3 racing graphite chassis that says its for sport only. I dont know why it wouldnt fit the Race version of the cyclone????

as its heaps cheaper and im on a very tight budget.

Ive pretty much hopped up a cyclone s to nearly full level.

Build quality on the 3 racing chassis didnt quite seem as good, but the car seemed to be fine **SHRUG**. Plus it comes with guides to help hold the battery in.

I did some testing on a green low grip carpet track yesterday. First I stated with 1.4 and 1.2 bars, then I unhooked both and it hooked badly and was hard to drive. Next I put the front 1.4 back on and it was much better with more rear grip. Then I put on the 1.6 in front and no rear bar, I liked that the best. The back was less stable without the rear 1.2 but had good rear traction. This was done with RP 24's and a spool. I am going to do the same thing on hi grip carpet and see what thats like.
