And it works with the existing size of the belts (ok, now I see that they sell slightly longer belts as well)? Why would it provide more snap out of corners?

I have an 81T (48P)spur gear in my Cyclone S and there is only about 1-2mm of clearance between the gear and the inside bottom of the chassis around the front of the opening. Would this be ok to use on an outdoor parking lot track or should I be worried that a small pebble will get stuck between or is it not likely since the tracks I run at are generally blown off and/or swept? I have a smaller spur but I am having trouble getting the right gearing for my 27T brushed motor. I just need something temporary until I upgrade to brushless soon.

Don't worry, have fun. If the spur gets damaged, it is not too expensive to replace it.

if you put the pullies from 3racing on that allow you to go from the stock 16t pully to 17 and 18t pullies it does make a difference. if you use the pullies you have to get the tc belts to make it work. this way it changes the internal ratio to close if not the same as the tc.

if you have anymore questions just post up or pm me. i will try and snap afew pics of it when i clean it up abit tomarrow

Hi I have posted many pictures of my baby on here and have had many approving looks, but I have decided that she needs a new, loving home and someone who can lavish the time on her.

She started life as a Cyclone Sport, but she has been added to over the last 6 months and she now stands here fully modded and ready to face a new owner.

List of Parts added to her as follows:

3 Racing Chassis with Battery retaining Lugs (LiPo's have NEVER come out.
3 Racing Silver SSG Top deck,
3 Racing Silver SSG Shock towers
3 Racing Silver SSG mid deck and
3 Racing Silver SSG bumper brace
Hara (Blue) edition Steering arm
HPI Pro 4 Toe blocks Front and rear
3 Racing Alloy FR & RF hinge hangers
Pro 4 Wishbones
Pro 4 Purple Alloy MIP CVD's Front and rear
3 Racing Sway bar sets front and rear
3 Racing Purple Alloy Upper bulkheads front and rear
3 Racing Purple alloy Lower Bulkheads Front and rear
3 Racing Purple Alloy Servo mounts
3 Racing Purple Alloy Diff bearing holders Front and rear
3 Racing Purple Alloy Spool with custom made 40 Tooth (Yokomo) pulley
3 Racing Purple Alloy battery side rear mount with
HB Purple alloy Motor Mount
3 Racing Purple Alloy Layshaft with Delrin 17 Tooth Pulleys
Modified Front and rear belts (Same as TC)
3 Racing Purple Alloy Motor Heatsink and Fan
Custom Built Hybrid rear diff, (40 Tooth) with Ceramic Diff balls.
HPI Pro 4 Purple Alloy crewdown Shocks with
3 Racing Purple Alloy shock caps.
HPI Pro 3 Purple Alloy (Wide) Rear Wheel Hexes
HPI Pro 4 Purple Alloy (Narrow) Front Wheel hexes.
HPI Pro 4 Titanium Camber Links

The 3 Racing Chassis is pre drilled for the FR Conversion discussed elsewhere and the car drives like a dream, has never been anywhere other than carpet and has been lovingly built up over the last 6 months or so, there are some odds and bits of spares but TBH I have hardly ever broken anything on her in all my time with her.

She does at this time have a 'homemade' LiPo Holder on her as an experiment with balance, this can be included but she looks much better without it.

Am laying this down for Offers only, please PM them and I will take a look as it has cost me over 400 ($570) to get her this far and I am NOT desperate to sell her as she is my current 'in use' car.

the car is a rolling chassis with NO electronics or shell, but she will, I am sure, make someone very very happy indeed.








Thanks for Looking.

Would it be possible to convert the stock diff to a spool by removing the balls and gluing the things together????

I cleaned up all the diff parts in paint thinner.
Assembled it dry and tight without the 12 diff balls.
Applied CA to the gap around the pulley.
Applied some Microballoons filler there too and applied CA to it.

There are no vibrations from this modified diff. The belt is even more tight because the pulley is not allowed to wobble. Looks good, will test drive it next week.

This is where I buy mine, the good thing about the 3Racing Spool is that it comes as standard with STEEL outdrives.

Cool, I will get that next time I need it.

Here is my bumper and diff mod: http://picasaweb.google.com/11688747...41793/Cyclone#
(The BRP TC3 bumper material seems little bit soft for me...)

If it doesn't hold, you could cut some fine grit sandpaper like washers and sandwich it between the pulley and outdrives.

Tested today and it worked fine! The cheapest/quickest upgrade you can do.
