BN RACING teams order say that you must clear the road for DADDY this weekend.....

What until you see the other pics of the car I may send those to your phone My purple alum rear hubs would look sweet on this car too It would also have equal toe from left to right I'm going to switch out the diffs and put the one that's in it in a plastic bag. It will do for this weekend until you put the pro spec diff in it for the regionals.

I have to buy maybe 2 or 3 servos pretty soon and $85 or $100 servos are out of this college student's budget lol...i liked another guy's suggestion but then my brother found this...what do you guys think?

http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/440702.asp

metal gears, ball bearings, .10/4.8v and .08/6.0v speeds for that price? zomg! I think its worth a shot...cant really disappoint at $30 though right? (of course id just buy one to start with and test it out to see if i liked it)

I currently have a JR 590m servo in my cyclone and i race 6cell/7.4 lipo on asphalt parking lot tracks (my 2wd buggy has a hitec 645mg servo in it as well). Anyways, the torque ratings between the two servos are nearly identical (the 590 and the cirrus i mean). Would you say this is a good buy for the money or should i look for something with more torque? The JR servo i have has served me well...i can usually place top 5 in sportsman at my local races and damn is the competition stiff! Lemme know...i kinda wanna give this a try but i dont want to throw my money away buying it.

Question for all cyclone owners.

1) How much steering lock do you run on your radios? ie maximum steering EPA or dual rate setting.

Hi picco

Ive got one and I find that it's a great car. Im the only one that drives a Cyclone TC in my area as well, all the leet drivers seem to be using the TC5R. I just have a love and devotion for HB cars and I'm never going to change until they stop making them lol

So yes they are a great car, parts are easy to find for me and it performs well.

If you have a WCE version I dont think I would bother upgrading to a TC, your better off just buying the pro spec diff if you run modified and the ver 3 spool.

Cheers
Adrian
