Hello everyone. Just wondering if any of you had heard clicking noises coming from the center pulleys when you put tension on the belts.

[QUOTE=STLNLST;5376280]I believe that the only way that you are going to be able to hit that gear ratio is to run a 110 or 112 spur. Both of those will have the spur hanging out of the bottom of the chassis unless you have the brushless motor mount. What motor are you running that you want a gear ratio in the 11's? Is it a brushless 4.5 motor? I use to run mine at 11.1



I am running a nosram 3.5 and ive been told to run up to 12 FDR on a tigh twity track .
Are you running the BL motor mount , and is their another way to get up to 12 without the BL mount , or do i need the motor mount ?
Thanks

If you hope to get those final drive ratio's without having your spur gear stick through the bottom of you cahssis you will have to get the brushless motor mount. This bigger spurs allow for the 11-12 FDR.

Looks like a Tamiya style steering system...Lots of changes on this car. This looks like the direction that Hara was talking about at worlds.

I had the same problem. Turns out that the pulley attached to the front belt moved and dissengaged from the pin because of the excessive play. I replaced the stock spacer with a traxxas revo part. Problem solved.

In the mornings we would just basically learn the track layout and get ready for the 1st round of qualifying. Small adjustments were made during qualifying when the bite would come up but the set up pretty much stayed the same. This would be the case at every club race so you already knew what to do. Learning the layout is all that morning practice was for.

ours is a bit trickier

doors open at 8

track opens at 8:15 for free practice with encouraged "turnover" to make sure everyone gets a chance

briefing 8:45

controlled practice (10 heats x1 4mn run) from 9

qualifiers from 10 to say 1:30 - 3 quals

then mains - 2 mains

then from 5:30 or so on pack up the track (not permanent)

you'd better learn the track during the 10mns that don't count cuz otherwise you end up missing the A

The only way to survive in such environments is to start with a basic setup that prevents the car from behaving erratically (read: one that has lots of rear-end grip) and progressively move grip back to the front end the whole day (I use droop and camber intake mostly, sometimes roll-centers) otherwise you end up with a car that's way too easy to drive on the pacman-like layouts we run on.

Conversely, isolating the effects of setup-changes from those of "natural" grip take-in from the track is virtually impossible, hence the need to understand setup changes impact before the due time.

Thanks all for the help,

Paul

Has anyone run a Lipo pack in the Cyclone TC? I'm sorry if this question has been asked before....I'm new to on-road.
