yep, thats for rubber tires where the outrsize diameter of the tire does not change. If your setting droop with foam tires you measure droop over ride height.



And yes the 3racing spool uses hardened steel cups.

Nice! Have you built it yet?

I use the P-DUB xray t2 bumper, as he said the holes are a little wide, but when you put the bumper brace on, it straightens the body posts, and after a day or so, the holes are perfect in the foam

Sounds a little ghetto to me. Redoing the holes will yield better results and any unnecessary tweak.

I tried another racers 5000 pack in my car and it fit fine. He runs a 008 and had already filed the pack down to fit in his car. He did file away a considerable amount of the hard case to make it fit his 008. I have also filed down the bulkhead in my car about .5mm for added room.

They come with better version of the one-way, spool and a lot more bling in some cases. Jason have you looked at me and Allen's Cyclones before, I have the original and he has the Andy Moore version. Basically all the parts are interchangeable. The Cyclone S is like the baseline TC4 and my cyclone, Andy moore, Hara, Surikim are Factory Team TC4. If you have you seen mine or Allen's cars has more bling than mine but performance is close.

There are 5 different Cyclone kits out there. 6 if you count the Cyclone S.
Original Black Edition, Hara Edition, Surikarn Edition, WC Moore Edition and the newest Cyclone TC.

The Original Black Edition: one-way up front, one-way center pulley, 3mm shock towers, steel universals, Delrin diff outdrives, Ti turnbuckles, 16T pulleys

Hara (purple), Surikarn (blue) Editions: one-way & spool in front, direct & one-way center pulley, 3.5mm shock towers, 44mm aluminum universal drive shafts, aluminum diff outdrives, Ti turnbuckles, 16T pulleys

WC Moore Edition: one-way & V3 spool in front, direct & one-way pulley, 3.5mm shock towers with added positions, MIP CVDs all around, Ti Nitride coated suspension hinge pins, shock shafts and diff screw, graphite bumber brace, rear aluminum heatsink brace, aluminum diff outdrives, Ti turnbuckles, 16T pulleys

Cyclone TC: has a mixture of parts from older kits along with brand new parts. New Parts: chassis, top deck, a-arms, roll bar assembly, front one-way/spool, prospec diff, bulkheads, steel turnbuckles, 18T pulleys

I probably forgot a few items but that's the basic breakdown.

Hope that helped.
