-run 2mm of uptravel in the front, and 3mm in the back

That should get you in the ballpark. The car should develop a good amount of grip to counteract the lack of grip the tires may produce. Give it a shot, then make some changes to suit your conditions.

Any of you have any ideas about the new Cyclone Ronald Volker have been driving? Is it still in prototype stage? Very Tamiya like though... the steering, the top deck.

I no longer make those type of bets. I just trash talk and take my beatings like a man.

From what I'm hearing, the one piece upper deck lets the chassis flex more over our typical 2 piece setup. This has had some benefits on really low grip carpet and such, but it's just testing.

Same thing goes for the tamiya style steering. From my previous experiences with the steering rack on tamiya cars, I'm not a huge fan of it. I feel the normal cyclone setup is better (for me at least), and more aggressive. Ronald is just testing new things as we always are on the team, so there are no guarantees that any one part we test will actually make it to market. As far as I know, he's pretty much testing that on his own as well. Everyone on the team has a similar goal though, to make sure you guys get the fast stuff

Default HELP

Hey there, just got myself a cyclone S as the TC's aren't available where I shop I've never ran on road before so I need help.

FYI I plan to run Lipo's on asphalt

1. Gearing for a 17.5 or 10.5 Pinion and Spur pls not just Final drive (Starting point anyway)
2. Basic idea of suspension starting point - springs, oil, piston
3. Sway bars
4. any tips pointers to consider before going racing.

thanks in advance

That is not entirely true. RCMAKET.COM.HK is hosting by Intrasia while RCMART.COM is hosting by another hosting company. Regardless they both are in Hong Kong. I also checked several HK web sites, they are fine.

RCMART site came up as fast while RCMARKET site are impossible to view. Ping to Intrasian was fast and reliable. RCMARKET must have been hosting on a share server with heavy traffic or RCMARKET page database are so screwed up making query impossible.

Mr. Chan if you are reading this. I hope you find out what causing your site so slow. I love to do business with you, right now just impossible to do so.

Need more Cyclone parts

I checked RcMarket last night around 11:30pm Pacific time and it worked for me, and I just checked right now and it seems to be working again as it has for me in the past.
