Also, since I am running lipos, wouldnt having a little heavier chassiss not that bad of an idea.

The reason is because people are still buying it. When people stop buying, price goes down.

How about posting some pictures of your Cyclone too? You have one of the cleanest layout Cyclone I have ever seen.

I know a place that sells AME cyclones for 439 and the regular edition for 279.00

500 is kinda steep.

WOW!

i looked at it and couldnt figure out why it looked more purple then mine lol haha


and if you think about it, if you go over the timing tower, it doesnt count the lap till the car/transponder gets that far over the line for it to count, so if u start and the transponder is in the back, then the lap wont start till its way back there lol

it took me some thinking, idk that thats correct, but seems so

Hi guys

thanks for the good comments on the car.

It looks vivid, cause the lighting in the room was such that the colour looked brighter, that's all.

The turnbuckles have been replaced from std titanium, to aluminum, thus the anodising is exactly the same as the rest aluminum parts and they are a bit lighter, but also more fragile.

AMB location is fine.. no big deal for a few centimeters.. I am not that good anyway, I don't think that position will cost me any places.
Besides.. what better excuse than say, I came 3rd cause the AMB was located on my car at the rear end!

I think youll find the reason for that is the steering arm which sits on the servo saver hits the bulkheads. When setting your car up you should make sure that the sterring dual rates are turned down so that the servo is not strained everytime you go to full lock.

PS. Are we related or something :P
