I use 48 pitch i have never quite been able to get a good rollout with 64 pitch

Use a 69T spur and about 39-41 tooth pinion. Maybe 38T if its a very small tight track.

I use 48 P also because I can't get the 64P to mesh right. I run 75/ 27-28 because of the small track, I also use trinity co 27 it gives me good top end/bottom end. Does the 69 spur work good?? what about on a small tight carpet track??

Yeah 69 Tooth works fine, however the gear i specified was for a 540 silver can motor. You need the 69T spur to get the high 40-44mm rollout required to run the motors.

With a CO27 i think im running about a rollout of 26mm which is 76T Spur and something like a 24-25T pinion. The gearing you use sounds too high, especially for a small tight track. I wouldve thought youd be better off gearing down a little to get better acceleration.

Do you find that your motor is running very cool?

Where can I get those sorts of Pinions? The highest I have seen on Tower Hobbies is 35T.

this tight of track has some long sections (not 100ft sections,, 35 ft sections, with a 90 deg right turn you can take full throttle into a 180 turn) the motor tops out on the straights and i have good speed going thru the corners, right after the last race i ran w/ a 6.30 gearing motor temp was 141 F, that was shot right as time was called, and before i turned the transponder in. i tried a final of 6.53, i couldnt keep up with everyone on the fast sections, but i could make up the difference thru the corners.

Um dont know, in Sydney Australia there is a fair amount of 540 racing but i didnt think there was much of it in the States or Europe.

The pinions which i use are Team Atlas pinions.

Looking around the only place i could find are japanese stores selling them like www.rainbowten.co.jp you might want to try dropping http://www.rc-champ.co.jp/ a line as well.

Im not sure but i think these are the ones you want as listed on rainbowten
4543445408389,ATLAS,500,MH8-389 HARD TEFLON TAPERED 48 PINION 39T
4543445408390,ATLAS,500,MH8-390 HARD TEFLON TAPERED 48 PINION 40T
4543445408391,ATLAS,500,MH8-391 HARD TEFLON TAPERED 48 PINION 41T
4543445408392,ATLAS,500,MH8-392 HARD TEFLON TAPERED 48 PINION 42T

Hmmm i dont think i have a 42 tooth :P

Hello!
I'm going to change my TA-05 at Cyclone-S
I have driven it 3 month and I wood like to buy a new more professional chaise to advance my skill of driving.

Is the difference between TA-05 and Cyclone-S? Is it smart choice?
Maybe are you given me recommendation for buy the cyclone or cyclone-hara for the future?

i would bother changing from Ta-05 to cyclone S. Keep/sdave your money and buy a hara or WE cyclone.

both the TA-05 and cyclone S are in the same league.

Completely agree with that.

As a test i started with the Cyclone S but i decided to see how the cyclone S goes with getting hop ups to the full level using 3racing parts. Also there are some parts incompatabilities with the 3racing parts. Bulkheads seem to be too narrow and are basically now paper weights for me. and also motor mount was a slight bit narrow so you have to upgrade the centre pulley mount to use it (the 3racing spur gear holder is suitable though).

Overall the cost is marginally more (meaning it is not a bad option for people on a budget) but in my opinion the 3racing parts are by far inferior to the real hotbodies parts. I would stick with the TA-05 and aim to upgrade to a full racing level chassis (preferrably a Cyclone, although there is a lot of bias in that comment ;P) not the Cyclone S which is an entry level car.

I have both. I need em tub chassis for my lipo batt.
Ta05 is more durable and needs minimal hopup. alum shocks, cvds, one way, swaybars. The car is very heavy and motor is hotter maybe due to weight in box stock form. Will survive a lot crash with modified motors and a lot of hits from other cars from all angles and still bounces back. This will be my brushless car soon.

Cyclone s. Will need to replace plastic pulleys, center shaft, plastic diff cups, plastic shocks, front dogbones, one way. But the car is very light and handles better than my ta05 but suspension parts are not as durable as ta05. Bought some purple alum c hub and rear hub already for durability not just bling.
Doesn't matter if you dont hit anything because people will hit you so durability is important.

ive got the 3 racing c-hubs, knuckles, and rear hubs. they are nice.. havent drove it yet cause i burnt my speed control up. tamiya does make some durable rc stuff, yet it always weighs a ton. i have a tb-evo II , bare w/ no electronics, or wheels/tires and a stick pack it weighs more than my cyclone w/ full electronics, foams, and a race pack.

flying G.E.O. you also need to replace the kit c hubs. The C-hubs which come with the Cyclone S kit are made of some weird brittle plastic. This is strange since all the other suspension parts seem to be made of the normal stock standard carbon graphite (including the rear hub carriers).
