You can also grind the humps off the bottom of the pack! should give you more room! I would rather grind the humps off the pack rather than ruin the chassi/bulkhead as an option.

Just got the Cyclone TC car a couple days ago and have a few questions:

Is this car hard to get parts from?

What's the biggest spur it takes?

108/109 64p is the biggest without having the spur peek under the chassis. the 110t will fit as well but the spur's teeth will be slightly exposed under the chassis. (this assumes you're using the stock bulkheads/motor mount).

I beat their fearless leader in our qualifying heat and had him in the main until I got hit by lapped traffic. Sean Williams gave me a killer set up. I still have to post it on gearchart.com

Nice job, STLNLST. I've got a herd of XRays to deal with in a couple of days as well, at the 2nd leg of the Western Canadian Indoor Champs.
My car's been good, but I'll definitely check out your setup on gearchart. Thanks.

I will hustle my lazy butt up and get it posted for you to view then. It will be the Seam Williams set up. I don't believe in trying to take credit for something I had no part in coming up with.

Default 17.5

What Gear ratio are you guys using with the Novak 17.5?
I'd also like to know the pinion and spur tooth count

For most big races you cannot modify the packs and get through tech inspection.

They list the pinks at 17.9 and the blue's at 15.3 As far as actual I have no clue. If you don't have the exact springs try using something close in what ever brand you choose. Me personally I like the Xray springs because they are fully colored and not just the ends where they can flake off. If i decide to run my Xray springs on this set up I would go white front (17.5) and blue/green rear (15)
