There is a possibility I'll be down later this month for some testing though. Some of the Canadians are going to kidnapp me on their way down haha.

Seattle RC Racers had recently run their first special event race, and it was a blast. Traction was great as there was a good showing for 1/12 and WGT. My Cyclone was on pace every qualifier (except for me plowing my car into a corner the first round ) and took the Tq position. In the mains, my main competition got caught up in another battle and I went on to win the main. Track was medium grip carpet, here's the setup I ran:

Camber: 2 deg
Caster: 4 deg
Swaybar: 1.4mm
Toe in/out: 0 deg
Wheelbase: 2mm in front of arm, .7mm shim behind it (a little shorter than stock)
Ride Height: 4.5mm
Droop: 1.75mm past ride height
Front toe block: 1.5 deg
Shims under suspensiopn blocks: 1.5mm all around
Wheel Hex: std
Ackerman: 4mm
Front Drive: Spool

Other: ATC posts with 2mm shim instead of oring

Rear:
Oil: Losi 60wt
Spring: HPI Pro 4 Blue
Piston: HB 1.1mm 3 hole

Assuming your running 5 cell, gear around 8.5-8.6 and check your motor temps.

Then I would say gear up in the mid 9's to low 10's. If you plan on racing I would suggest getting a 4.5, a 3.5 with lipo is going to be stupid fast.

Default thanks

i'm starting to get that impression about the 3.5,the more i ask around the more i here the 4.5, the last time i ran mod i was using a 7x1 orion hara.i was under the impression it was about the same as a 7 wind no?my brushed was fast with that wind is 3.5 more like a 6 or 5 wind?thanks for the starting point i'll pull some gear charts and test next weekend.

3.5T with 6 cells is way too fast to be controlled. Furthermore, without the optional brushless motor mount, you are not able to gear it right. At the IFMAR world championship, I don't think any top drivers run below 4.0T with 6 cells.

I personally run faster and more consistent laptime with a 5.5T, than a 4.5T because I can control the car better.

Hope it helps.

Good luck trying to get an answer. I'm sponsored by Orion and still don't know these answers That new speedo will need to be sent in to KO to have the 1.5 upgrade done though.
