If it's new and not coming from somewhere that may attract the attention of HM Customs & Excise snap it up. Minor problems with CVD pins aside (now hopefully sorted!) I'm well chuffed with mine.

hi all, im new here.... im a hb nut.. i race a wce moore speed cyclone

and i want a d4 to race in MOD with a mamba max 5700.... on 6 cells, will the diffs and all handle the power? or will i shread the diffs?

and if i dont race (i race tc more then anything) can i lock up the center for wheelies, or will that just blow the diffs?

I would imagine the same as the Cycone since, TC's have more traction and acceleration compared to a buggy.

I doubt it will do wheelies unless you have a low geared 7700.

the cyclone is belt drive tho..... so i cant shred a diff pinion


and it would.... these things have some whicked torque, and im running the 5700..... made a losi xxx s graphite wheelie... thats my friends car..... so idk


but it could be my full time racer now my track owner just cut off elec onroad, and is nitro only due to the track locals racing everywhere else, and now theres not enuff ppl there, im soo mad, and kinda sad at the same time cuz i loved that track

but off road, VERY fun

any set up sheats for it? or a starting point? and how much for it in usd?
