I'll look into it.

thanks a lot guys,
Hello Tabushi, here in a similar track, for 5.5 we use 7.3 - 7.5, depend of ESC, i run 4.5 Octawind, is more adecuate, but i see you run 5.5 class.

Greetings, Luis C.

I have seen Hot Bodies has a "HD Front Universal Drive Shaft 44mm Cyclone". Can this be used up front even though it is not 46mm?

Sorry if this has already been mentioned.....haven't had the time to go back and read

For replace the metal spools outdrives, are the Ref. 67731 are POM outdrives for spool, i use it in may old Cyclone, with good results.

The pivots blocks, are the same from cyclone?, and the Shock towers and sway bars same from TC ? , i see the pulleys are the same from TC, rear diff, etc...and anothers parts, i have some spares from my old car.

Greetings, Luis C.
Shock towers are different due to the narrower mounts, think the diff is different for the same reason

Hi guys.
I was wondering what was the lowest FDR possible on the TCX. I have tried to fit/mesh a 26t pinion with a 115 spur (64DP) but due to the upper deck it wont seem to fit. I noticed Hara quotes this on one of his set up sheets. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance for any help

sorry, forget that! Motor was positioned in such a way that it was touching the upper deck and stopping a more snug fit! Just turned it slightly and bobs your uncle, oops!

I'm able to get a 104 / 45 (4.51 FDR) with no problem. That would easily be a lower FDR than your 115 / 26 (8.63 FDR)

I believe your problem is with the motor hitting the upper deck from running a small pinion. If you need your current FDR you may try a larger pinion AND spur to shift the motor forward. A 120 / 27 (8.67 FDR) would move the motor forward because of the larger diameter spur AND move it forward because of the larger diameter pinion. However your FDR will remain as close as possible to your current FDR.

I'm running a 3.0 with a 55 pinion and 86 tooth spur. You can go lower, but you really have to play with the gearing to make it work. Thankfully speedtech has plenty of spurs and pinions available.

Sorry if this is off-topic, and may have been answered before. But will these fit a TCX?

Hot Bodies Heavy Duty Motor Mount Set
[HBS68752]


Saw there is an option motor mount for the TCX. Is it needed or will the stock motor mount do?
