i've got a brushless 13.5 & Nosram ISTC motor/speedo combination, i have a low profile servo to put in to save a few more grams. I'm coming to the point where 50g is a lot of weight to have and im noticing performance differences compared to a mate thats running the same as i am but bang on the weight he's faster than iam.

These are all I could think of right now.
steering blocks
hub carriers
c-hubs
front bumper assembly
pivot blocks
a-arms
outer hinge pins
shocks, springs
misc. hardware(screws, nuts, washers, ballstuds, etc.)

That should be outer hinge pins and not inner hinge pins

Forget about the AE screw, just get the following parts and you shouldn't be breaking the diff screw. Just make sure that you run a 2.6mm drill bit thru the centre of the diff outdrives.

Thank you..... JOEHWEE !!! I do drill them out to 2.6
After looking at all the post on here the only complaint's about the Cyclone have been about the diff. In mod to keep the diff from slipping I have to run it very tight and that is hard on the trust bearings and the screw. I have melted 4 diff's until I started running them tight. It's way cheaper to break the screw then to melt the diff. The stock diff is fine with stock up to 19 turn but for hi KV motors it just takes to much work keeping it smooth and not slipping. The aluminum diff helps but I have to bottom out the spring to keep it from slipping. I had the same thing with my PRO4 .
It looks like I have to have both the 61332 and 61544, I will get them!!!
Thank you very much
