there's pics of it if you go to the speedworld thread and look up pics of some of the earlier speedworld cups. It's checker board in the front with yellow/greenish flames on the hood and sides with a few shadow type fades then all pink in the rear.

just bought a Cyclone S Drift Special Edition kit, few queries to raise and hope to get some answers:

1. i have all stick type batteries.. can i use them on this kit?

2. if not, is there a thread to show us how to do up the battery pack to a side-by-side pack? What are the equipment needed and wires... or links...any instructional weblink that i can read it up.

3. What is the best pinion size for drifting with this kit with spur of 96T?

Pls advise. and Thanks in advance.

You may want to post this in the forum for the Cyclone S. That chassis is a little different in layout from the regular Cyclone.

Nah, if it was me it would've been one color My buddy here in town (CMH custom painting) did it. It's a McGoo inspired scheme....

Update on Lipo's that fit. Tried a Reedy 5000 lipo and it just hits the bulkhead. You would have to grind about 1mm of the bottom of the bulkhead to get it to fit. That's with the cell nubs going into the slots.

You have to do that much grinding to get the Core 5000 to fit even though it is only .5mm taller than the Orion 4800 and Trakpower 4900, both of which I hear fit with no modification??

I did it because I didn't want it being that tight. The Orion does fit but it does rub the case going in. The .5mm does make a difference on the Core. The mod takes about 3 minutes and you're done. I can't see why anyone wouldn't want the fit to be just a bit better........

Haha,

Yes I do use the TP pack, works awesome!

I was wondering though, it is a tight fit, and the bulk hits the case, with the bulk hitting the case, would that limit any flex, or cause chassis tweak or anything of that sort? Or does it not matter?

Mine works awesome aswell, I havent seen any difference with it touching the bulkhead, kinda seems like it tweaks less but maybe thats because im driving better.
