How much difference is there between the worlds car and the tc? The last cyclone I had was a surikarn 2 years ago. I had to sell it to raise money when I bought my house.

Snapped another tub chassis'This makes 3-in two weeksas before nothing was hit hard just went over a corner dot.Again it is the exact same spot _buy the rear pulley slot.I have a 9yr old losi xxx-s that has never broken anything besides 1 c-hub(my fault).I am not a novice driver and I went the sport route because I cant fork out the money right now for tc.Love the car but what the heck is going on--anyone else?? by the way it only had a 17.5 in it, so it wasn't overpowered.

Bummer dude,i've flown over many corner dots,t-boned,rear ended and every wheel smacked into by other drivers.At times in the heats there are way to many drivers but so far knock on wood nothing has broke on my cyclone s.One time i smacked head on full speed into a huge stone that holds parts of the track together,i was just trying to pass on the outside and wham! came to a complete stop,totaled the front of my body but nothing broke,pure luck i've been having.

I think I can live with the worlds car and just put the pro spec diffs in it. I mainly run offroad right now, but wouldnt mind the option to run some tc every now and then.

It has happened to my friends cyclone s as well same spot-I dremmeled off the rear to the pivot holder on the replacement and it still broke in the same spot.these are all new kits less than 3 wks old-Have they changed materials??I am now told by the shop that chassis are back ordered-anyone make a fiberglass version?can't seem to find an aftermarket graphite one in stock anywhere either.I think HB makes one but it's like 70 bucks and no standoffs-May have to go into business

Korey, have you tried the xray springs at all ? In particular I was wondering about the springs that are rated in wire size i.e. 2.2, 2.4, .... 3.2 .
Thanks.

The older xray springs worked really well on the car so I would assume that the newer one's will as well.

if all you changed was the main chassis, the belts should not be tight. if you changed the layshaft with the main chassis, make sure you are using the proper length belt and layshaft pulleys. the black edition stock comes with the 16 tooth layshaft pulleys, count the teeth on both pulleys and a shorter belt. the TC edition comes with longer belt and 18 tooth pulleys. If it was built with 18 tooth pulleys and short version belt is will be real tight!!! Check the hingepin mounts, there is a front/rear and rear/front, if backwards, the belts will touch....... if thats all good, make sure the eccentric diff holders are facing the proper position.. check the manual for notch position. if still tight, disconnect the front and rear camber links to allow the arms to drop and the axles to disengage from the diffs and backtrack to why it is tight.... probably seized bearing? this car when maintained is real "free" when motor/ pinion is not installed...

Good luck... let us know.
