I built this Cyclone to tinker with, but after going to a few sessions with it and tinkering with settings on my own, I feel like CS drifting is what will bring rebirth into the hobby. After talking to alot of people and consulting different online tutorials I decided that this cyclone is going to be my test car. I am going to do all my tuning and breaking of parts with this car, once I get a setup I like, I will transfer over all my knowledge onto a new Cyclone S and build up what I hope will be "the ultimate CS cyclone"

Considering this, I will give myself 3 to 4 months to really get this vehicle setup, hopefully by May or June I can start building my "ultimate" CS cyclone! Keep in mind that the car is pretty much a beater test car, so with the following pics, excuse the dirtyness lol
