You are kidding yourself if you are comparing the Cyclone TC to it.

If you want to compare cars why not compare the price of the Cyclone TC with real cars like the Corally PHI, TRF 416 (Xray 008, if it floats your boat :P).

The TC5 is cheaper but associated seem to throw their weight around to get cheaper kits out, but i also dont see as many positive comments about it as other top of the line cars.
You are kidding yourself if you don't think the TC5 is as good as any other car on the market. It really depends on who shows up on the day to race which car.
You show me someone that doesn't like a particular car and I will show you 10 that do.

I dint say the TC5 isnt a good car. There are alot of good cars around, although personally i wouldnt rank it amonst the top cars.

Personally at top world class events i dont see many TC5s, although they seem to be quite good on carpet.

Its nice to see someone stop by and dreg up an old conversation for a couple of months ago...

EVERY TOURING CAR KIT IS OVER-PRICED!!

that's the bottom-line...we, the consumers, pay for a company's "developemental" costs - not saying the don't do legit testing/research/designing...

The only way the kits will drop in price is for US (the racing community as a whole) TO STOP BUYING INTO THE TC-OF-THE-MONTH-CLUB...that's what killing touring car racing - but yet every manufacturer is releasing a new chassis and the magazines hock their manufacturer's wares saying how "this i the greatest thing and is NEEDED for racing" blah blah blah

I could go on like this for hours its a sucky circle

If the TC kit is over-priced for that YOU think feel is sub-pro-level parts, THEN DON'T BUY IT...but coming in here and start bitching about the price don't do anything

man...that was a long way to say that - I hate getting off on tangents

Hi Korey
Is the setup you gave me, the one you say is a little pushy in 10.5 ? if so what have you done to make it any better?

Thanks Malc...... I like the spool in my car but I had to much chatter when the wheels are turned>> Maybe that will help.
Your not going to believe this.... I put the pro spec alum. diff in front last winter about a mouth before carpet was over and have not touched it sense. I think I can get the whole summer in with it, I put the POM pro spec in back last month and it's as smooth now as it was when I put it in and nether one slips at all. (use the stick on Shields) I run mod and drive at lest 2 times a week on asphalt !!!!
