No I did not get it from you so it must not be the same one, If you would, send it to me, I would appreciate it.
Thank you

Has anyone managed to get a hold of the new arms?
Interested to see if the slightly softer rear shock position yields good results, as the HPI suspension is always firmer in the rear end.

Questions??

I only use lipo and a 10.5 brushless. Where do you guy place weight to get your car legal? I have to add at least 300 grams to get my car up to 1525 grams. I have a soft pack SMC 4000 lipo soft pack and planning on getting a hard pack 4000 lipo.

longshot of a question...looking to try to get correct gearing with a 17.5 on my hara cyclone...

but i dont want to switch belts or pulleys or any of that jazz. Lookin at speedtech i can get a 87t spur (if you guys know where i can find smaller spurs that'll work on the cyclone lemme know) and 59+ tooth pinion gears. The huge ass pinions will definately be helpful on attaining the right gear ratio but will it be too big and hit the chassis? Would i have to buy that brushless motor mount kit? That thing is expensive :/

On the sides of the battery until it is balanced, you can also mount weights on top of the battery. When the weight is placed on the side it will give more leverage for balancing without having to add as much physical weight.

Lefthanderrc.com has a ton of big pinions and small spurs (its an oval site), I have mounted many large pinions on my cyclone and they should fit. I have a 17.5 geared at 3.48 fd on my cyclone with stock pulleys and my pinion spur combo is 80/55.

Any idea if that 76t spur will be too small to mesh with a 53-55t pinions?

Lots of questions i know...but im kicking and screaming the whole way to switching to 17.5 lol. I wanna stay stock, what can i say.

Thats got to be close! you may have to dremel the motor mount

The BL motor mount's are just to raise the spur up, theres no more adjustment in them, so those wouldnt help much...
