Yes, geometry is nearly identical. The car is made with softer plastic and has most of the same features, but the parts are made from lower quality materials to keep costs down. But, in general unless you can notice these fine details on the track, its a great deal.

can anyone direct me to a site or just some info on how to use the PPD tweak plate. The only thing I can find is something a 5 year old can figure out. The directions just tell you how to mount it. It says you can adjust the droop while on the plate..... but I dont see how. Is there supposed to be a certain spot to check the droop?

So, you're looking to do the same, huh

I'd love to ge the TC, but can't see dropping the $$ (new or used, unless its a good deal) for a car I'd only race a couple of times a year

so i'm just hunting for an original cyclone and go from there

I own a Worlds Edition and am really happy with the car, I have not been in rc very long but I have driven a few different models and I really really like my cyclone. The worlds editoin you can find for a decent price and just upgrade it its only lacking a few things but I dont know if you can use the ATC posts unless you drill and set them yourself.

Did you buy it used? Try going to the actual thread and look at the pics posted. It might help you out some. It's really easy to use.

Hello guys , im back in a while and i wanted to say how my first important race went.
So it was on sunday the 4 and it was on carpet medium track.
I ran mod 3.5 with my new ENERG4600.
The practise was very usefull , i only did a 14 lapper and the best was 25 lapps .
After the practise i changed a bit my setup cause the rear was sliding and for my first heat i did a 17 lapper.
Again i changed the setup on roll center and roll bar.For the second heat i did a 19 lapper wich was pretty good but i kept banging myself in every corners ,i still became fifth out of 6 . Then the third heat came and it was awsome until some one came full speed in my back and it tweaked the car so badly i had to slow alot but it still finished in a 19 lapper.
Then for the fourth heat was one of the best run with a 20 lapper almost clean run .
Finaly the final , i was in the B but i was enjoying it , i was against some of very good drivers. The 12 laps i did where great , one of them was my fastest lap but then when it came to the straight on the 13th lap i drifted a bit and the front right of the car banged on the corner wich broke my steering arm and it bounced back on the barrier wich unscrewed my motor . Because of this i didnt do the second leg but i still enjoyed the day . I thought i had a spare but unfirtunatly no , i have 5 widhbones , 3 hubs for each sides , a chassi a top deck , so many spares execpt the streering knuckle .
Thne i went back home with my brokn part but i loved my first race of the year .
I thought i would share what i did with you guys because sometimes you were sharing your race so i thought it would be nice.

Hi, I want to run ashphalt mod rubber with this car. What springs are best to use, HPI or Hara. Also are the gold and silver kit supplied springs pretty close to a good set up for mod? Cheers
