Glad I could help bro. It's gotta be better if the toe is equal on both sides and not fighting from left to right. I think that it would help the corner speed as well. Happy racing to you.

I will be taking the suggestions and concerns that I've seen on the last couple of pages to those above me so that they can see what is being said in a public forum. After that it's out of my control but I think there has been some excellent information on here so we'll see.

Normally I do more work in the offroad forum, but I'll check in here from time to time to see if anything is goin down.

Have a great weekend,

Way to lay some minds at ease. You were still MIA for the Reedy but hopefully you can make it out to the Speedworld cup. The HB car will be a force in 10.5, 13.5 and mod at this race.

Thanks for those kind words Jeremy and its good to see someone take note of what has been written about our concerns, there is no need to flame such an excellent product, as I like other have bought the TC on the strength of the WCE
and would not gain any respect from flaming, so I/we look forward to what will come out of what us racers have brought to light

The thing I like the most about the Cyclone is that you can upgrade the older Cyclone all the way to the newest one.
The diff was the only thing I had to work on and now with the pro spec I have not had to work on my diff for almost 3 month's now and it's still smooth

Yeah you can drill all linkages in front or rear and somehow if you are using the pro spec diff, you may take off the linkage through the ball cap hole and get thru the diff screw just to avoid wearing off the ball caps.

LOSI123 Did you properly tweak your car? Does it only pull oneway under acceleration or all the time?
1)Make sure you steering bellcrank moves freely with no binding
2)How old is your servo and transmitter?
If your servo is old it can be worn out but that goes with the steering and throttle pots in your transmitter aswell. If you race alot I recommend sending in your transmitter to have your steering and throttle POTS replaced about every year to 2 years.
