Yes,my car was good at the end of today too.Didn't make the main,yes I know failure! But Kathy allowed me to run the A anyways.Its good to know people.By the main I got the car sorted and finished a tenth behind Arluck{who won} at the end. Started 11th on the grid,actually lead the race near the end and finshed a strong 2nd battling for the win.I am am looking forward to getting the car on the track again.I am excited about racing again! BTW, the SMC 5000 is the sh*t.

i just got my hands on a used moorespeed cyclone. i'm wondering what the main priorities are for backup parts, i'd like to get part numbers for these from the seasoned cyclone racers

i'd also like to get the part number of the new team diff kit that has come out? also, is there a dust cover for the rear diff?

cheers

I bend so many Ti-coated hinge pins, probably two every month. Also if you use the graphite c-hubs and steering knuckles, stock up on those of course. Stock up on Pro 4 arms, but now there releasing new stronger arms for the same price but there not out yet and they will most likely be hard to find.

Get all your stuff from rcmarket, hes so awsome and has the best selection of cyclone parts.

If your curious heres a complete list of parts i broke or bent on my moorespeed:

-Ti-coated hinge pins
-Graphite c-hubs
-Graphite steering knuckles
-Graphite arms
-Alloy c-hubs
-Servo saver
-CVD's
-bulkhead
-servo horn
-wheels
-outdrives
-CVD blades
-ball cups

Honestly, how do you bend the hinge pins every few runs? I think I crash alot, and after one race season I have one bent.... So dang!!!

Servo saver/horn, IDK how you pull that off

CVD's, I run a spool and I havent broken one yet

Ball cups, still on original set

Everything else has broken. but not alot
