Spool Part# 49358
Spring Set, White Part# 49382
Direct Center Pulley Part# 53708

I would add the 950 size wheel bearings and a lite-weight Titanium screw set and the new low profile KO servo. Good Luck.

I race on a tight (relatively) twisty track, and one ways seem to work fine there. Even Evo drivers run one ways there.

The springs I saw on his car at the race looked like the HPI silver springs (16.9lb) for the pro4/cyclone. These were the springs that he ran at the '04 worlds.

What lenght do you run your shocks? At the moment from the bottom of the shock body to the top of the ball end i am running 12.5mm but at the moment i'm having a bit of trouble getting the shock not to effect the droop. I am running the front shocks in hole 2 on the shock tower and hole 1 on the lower arm and 3mm droop. When ever i push the shocks on, the level of the arm goes up . Can you tell me what lenght you have your shocks please.

Cheers, Charles
