Default Cyclone Tc top deck

just putting together a Cyclone TC on the setup board the chassis is nice and level, as soon as i fit the topdeck it pulls the bulkheads together and i can rock the car from side to side slacken the deck of and it lies flat.
anybody had the same prob wondered if i used a topdeck from wce would this cure the problem.

Cheers

the servo doesn't hang off the side of the chassis and it's a hair lighter than my Airtronics servo so that's less weight to add to the battery side to balance the car from left to right using lipos.

Dude, you couldn't have read my mind any better. I'm using lipos too and I'd like to lessen the weight needed on the right front. It's almost ridiculous!

My Reedy setups are on gearchart.com. They should be a good starting point for most tracks.

Pm me if you have any questions.

Scotty, any changes I should make for the SWR cup?

Also, is the 13.5 still a go for me?

Ok bare with me as i am still a cyclone newb...Before the car gets here i wanted to order a couple parts i know i am going to need/want. I am looking for the part numbers on a few things:

Belts for the 18t pulley
Spool (i know there are a couple versions not sure which one i need)
18t pulley (not sure if i need locked or one way i have no idea which does what)
aluminum servo mount
moorespeed hinge pins and shock shafts.

I think that should about do it.

The other question i have is i was looking at buying the TC version before i found a good deal on a upgraded black version. The TC version has the new variable twist deck design i was wondering if this is possible to run on the older cyclone or if its even worth it.

Hi Guys again,

No you haven't scared me off. I have a question for you. Have any of you guys ever tried putting A123's into a Cyclone S. If you have, how have you found it?

Thanks
