Well... I wouldn't be surprised it will be late September by the time it gets to yoru local shop. They'll be at Hot Bodies early sept... but then it is usually shipped to a distributor, then the local shop.

what do you mean by "rear end locked".

thank you

Rear end locked is my way of saying to make sure the rear isn't loose or fish tailing in the corners due to lack of traction. I had to guess what to do in the low traction conditions that you stated. When you say your car pushes...is that on power or off power? If the 8mm works for you...don't worry about what I like. You go set TQ I may try that myself just to see how it feels. How did the car feel with the droop that way?

Sometimes we can get items from Speedworld but 90% of the time we have to order over seas

my car pushes with on power . i dont think that it lacks of grip because i changed to the carbon midle deck instead of the aluminium heatsink , and i do prefer the carbon deck over the aluminium one.
For the droop that you told me , it had more off power steering but a litle less on power steering . my track is medium speed track low grip so i would need abit of both abit more on power steering.but my main probleme is just after the straight ive got to slow down to have enough steering .just after the straight there is a c shap corner and when i go full speed my car understeer and ... bang i hit the barier.
last question when the pros they write 5mm droop on there setup sheet . does it mean 5mm over ride height or does it mean 5mm on the droop gauge

thank you

Default POM Outdrives

Does the POM outdrives fit the Solid Axle ver.3?

And how can the POM outdrives fit into the 2 way diff (one-way/spool)? Coz the shape of the original steel 2 Way diff drives are completely different from that of the POM outdrives.

2 Way Diff: http://www.hbeurope.com/piw.php?lang=en&partNo=67714

Thank you!

To pick up a little more on power steering you could always lay your front shocks down. This will help some but from what you're describing I would work on entering the the "C" corner a little better. If you're pushing to the point to where you hit the wall then you're on the throtle too long. How are other driver's entering that same part of the track? Do they go full punched or do they slow down some? I would think that 5mm of droop is on the gauge but you never know what they are going off of. Sometimes they will state on their set up sheet if droop is measured over ride height.

Default hello to all

Got a couple of questions.I have an original black Cyclone.Going to start upgrading.So far...I'm looking at the worlds shock towers(61090/1 F/R).I see the 67702 chassis and 67703 top deck listed at HB( just saw that these are the TC parts.Will they fit?Is the 70728 WC chassis an improvement over the original chassis?).Is this combo a good upgrade?Same chassis but with the battery trays or different than original?One more...The 44mm bones,why would I need them? I do remember seeing posts about them but with about 4,0000 posts..Anything else you guys could recommend? OH...going to be running rubber on carpet...maybe foam.Then using it for rubber on asphalt next summer.Thanks for any help.Mario.
