So, what's the scoop on TCXX's hitting the retail shelves? Tower now has availability as early October...

I thought the retail boxes were shipped out weeks ago?

Default TCX in drfit mode

Dear all, i am helping a friend of mine in converting a TCX to a drifter and need the following info

(Center pulley to front) with one way but 16T not 20T in order to make the rear wheels spin faster than the fronts. Does it exist? i saw a setup sheet with 16t but couldn't find it anywhere, even though the Cylone had this part but would it fit?

Also what pinion do you suggest for the following type of motor
LEOPARD SKYRC 4370KV 9T Brushless Motor &60A ESC Speed Controller

Thanks guys

It does exist, though you may have trouble finding one.

There is a picture and park number here

It's quite a bit smaller so you may need to consider a shorter belt also. I haven't done it so I wouldn't know for sure.

Good luck!

Actually looking at it, you may struggle to fit the pulley on the layshaft because the TCX is a fair bit narrower there than the Cyclone was.

I'm sure you could make it work somehow, but it's probably more work than it's worth.

you won't be able to find one for the TCX. 3Racing made a changable center pulley (and one way) for the Cyclone TC, not the TCX. the center shaft/pulleys/spur mount completely differently on the TCX vs the TC

the TCX came out of the box with only a 20t spur, and i haven't seen anyone make something different.

I made mine from a alloy cyclone 16t pulley.
Just cut the end off that has the set screw flush & put a notch in the center for the pin.
If you want you can use the old 20t pulley for the tensioner pulley. oh yea gears 35t/64p & 115t/64p

Hi,

Does anyone know what the centres are for the steering crank on the tcx as I may need a new steering system and cant remember if it is 27 or 29mm centres.

Regards

James

How long have you had a TCX? The plastics on the HB TC's are quite brittle, and so are subject to breaking with slight contact. The knuckles are especially prone to breaking - at least the way *I* drive

I have to disagree about the brittle part. I have yet to break any plastic on my TCX. Your probably right about your driving.
