Hebiki, how is that Cyclone treating you? Did you get one yet?

Nice car. Love the body. If I do race TCS this year, I'll have to get one.

J-Mac... the cyclone is abusing me. im gonna make a few more changes, if it doesnt improve... im selling it for a TB-03IFS and 416!

Carl: the IFS works very well in my opinion IF you can get it figured out AND if you have the right body. for slower classes in TCS... it can be an advantage in the right hands.

Well if you get a 416, hit me up. I have a setup you can try out. Mine has been very good to me.

I don't see why not, the body posts in the front and rear should be able to mount a Rally body no problem..

You just might have to ream out a few new holes due to spacing and placement differences..

Hmmm, Tony Fiorella won the USA trip to Japan last year with his TA05 and swore the stand up shock version was better. Now the laydown shock version I'm sure could work, but if just narrowed down between the 2 and body was taken out of the equation, the stand up should work better; no angles to bind or change the geometry. Just think of it this way, your car has subtle changes if the shocks aren't perfectly straight up, that's why we shim the ends to make sure they are vertical, now that is without a cantilever, etc. Now granted, with a different body and some innovative set ups I'm sure there is a set up that can work, but narrowed down, the stand up should be better side by side. Am I going in circles?
