I donīt have chatter in the steering, with CVD Mips, and spool V3, with the POM outdrives, but i detect a problem, in turn when the suspension is compress the pin of dogbone, in the outdrives, go out and cause excessive wear, i put the washer is in the out of axle, in the part from internal bearing, i think, the cvd go slighty to the outdrives, but not solve the problem.

Now, i read the Korey post, and go to change the CVD, from Universals, but i have 4 CVD news, i have to use it in the rear of car, i think is not a problem? , this not change car handling?

Thanks for all help.

Greetings, Luis C.

Help !! My son (Alex) has decided to give on-road a try so we bought the Cyclone S, now he wants to change the gearing to the TC gearing ? which would take bigger pulleys ? and different belts ? I went to the hobby store and they did not know what we were talking about. Can somebody provide exactly what we are looking for ? or maybe a place online where I can find these parts

What the team has found, the steel outdrives work best when used with MIP CVD's in the front of the car. The MIP CVD's don't fit as tight in the hub bearings, and give a little bit of slop there. That helps take some of the chatter out as well. When using the POM outdrives, we suggest using the HB Ver 2 universals as they fit tighter in the bearings and the combinded amoutn of slop isn't too much. It seems to be the best combo for the POM outdrives.

As far as other questions about chatter, check to make sure you have at least version 2 HB universals or MIP CVD's. The ball joint and range of motion is greater on these, so they chatter significantly less. Also, there will always be some chatter with a spool, so a little bit isn't much to be worried about. Especially in an unloaded condition like turning the car upside down.

If you guys are still concerned about chatter, hot bodies has just recently released their DCJ driveshafts which have two universal joint in them, much like designs from Losi or Xray.

Very helpful information Korey. All your efforts to help out cyclone racers are truly appreciated. I'll try to find the POM outdrive cups. In the meantime, however, I switched to slightly worn steel drivecups and there is some reduction in chatter. The first 60% steering goes smoother while some chatter remains on the latter 40% towards full steering lock. I will try things out at the track tomorrow and hope to notice less front end chatter under load. Thing is, I never experienced this with my previous cyclone original black edition. Then again, I ran with center and front one ways on that one. Thanks again!

Call Billy at Speedworld, I think he has most of those parts hanging on the wall.

Looking a Andy Moore's cyclone, and also the FXF Cyclone kit the bulkheads dont have that extra brace coming down, so being this cyclone had plastic front bulkheads I tried it out. I dont know that id take this to alu bulks. But if you take away that front part, you can scoot the servo up, drill and tap the bellcrank (I think thats what its called?), pop a ball stud in it, and bam!

Sorry for the crappy pic, took it at 3 in the morn on my cell LOL.. Nothing is stuck down or anything, so yea
