Default 1st day

1st day went well.Got 3 runs in (I work slow.lol.).The car is very smooth and easy to drive.Responded very well to adjustments/changes.Very nice.I like this car alot.Need to get some more springs as the ones I have don't fit(too long).Ordering for next sunday practice.Went with the R9-F body.Very smooth and Alphalike.Just need to work on a bit more rotation in the corners...squaring up a bit too much at the moment.It's there, just ran out of time yesterday. Mario.

No, the belts are not the same as the Cyclone. The cyclone has the spur gear/input shaft behind the motor while the Scythe has it in front of the motor. I know TOP have a few different size belts depending on what pulleys you are using.

Happy to hear the car is working good for you Mario! Get us the setup when you have time.

My car on asphalt has been working really good. Won a money race last week, and 10.5 at the KO this week. I've got to hang up the car for a couple weeks though, two weeks in a row is a lot of racing me. LOL
