I ran PPD billet plates, and I think Hiro did as well. Kevin is a local racer to me so I like to support him and his products.

I use this special tape that I guess carpenters use. It's extremely thin and clear, but REALLY sticky. I just use two small squares and the lipo plate is STUCK to the battery. The ppd billet plates don't have big enough "bumps" in the to fill up the cell slots on the cyclone TC chassis though. I just push the plate to the front-outside of the slots. When you tape everything in, just make sure the tape is touching the bumps so it sits still

Thanks Korey. Has PPD thought about a TC version that would fit?

Not yet, maybe if there is enough demand he'll make them. Since it's for one specific car, he's been hesitant on making them. His current lipo plates will work in just about any car in some way or another.

Default Cyclone TC - -Rear Wheel Alignment

Can anybody help me with the rear wheel alignment on my TC.
No matter what I do I get 2 toe-in on the RHS and 4 toe-in on the LHS.
I have replaced the alloy pivot blocks, suspension arms and wheel hubs to no effect.
I have swapped suspension arms from side to side, also to no effect.
I have plotted the chassis holes on graph paper and, as far as I can tell, the mid-points all intersect on a common centre line which suggests to me that the chassis has been drilled properly.
Any suggestions, or should I not worry about it ?

Richard

Most of these problems have been located to the rear hub carriers, there was a bad run in the past. Have you tried switching them left to right like you have with the suspension arms? That will tell you right away if thats what the problem is. Also check your hinge pins... I've had some people come up to me complaining about the same thing and they had a bent hinge pin.

I personally run aluminum rear hub carriers. HB has just released them in 0 deg and 1 deg rear hub carriers. I've been running the 0 deg hub carriers on rubber tires, and the 1 deg on foam. They work great, and I have zero rear toe in issues. Plus they look pretty cool!

Hope that helps!
