here's some pages from the Pro4's tuning guide..that can also be applied to the Cyclone:

HPI/HB should have included the tuning guide in the Cyclone manual.

If you lift your chassis 2mm and the tires come off the ground, you have 2mm of droop. If you measure 6mm to the lowest part of the arm/knuckle on blocks, you have set your "downstops" to 6mm. Hudy, Serpent, and most of the industry have used this nomenclature for years.

I see from the HPI guide they have decided to interchange the two terms like many I see online.
