I've tried fitting the Pro4 steel cv bones...doesn't fit..it's too long.

Hey guys,

I'm going to have my first race since 1997 on Sunday, at the moment I'm working on my cyclone to prepare it; Just installed a TIR spool and also noticed heavy vibrations when steering. For the spool i had to replace the middle one-way pulley with a fixed one, and since then the front belt keeps going left and right on the fixed pulley. Tried different shimming on the front but that did not help. Any suggestions? Since this is my first belt-driven car (i used to drive a pro4 before the cyclone ) i even do not know if maybe this is normal, but i did not notice it when using the one way, so maybe there is something i can do about that.

kind regards and thanks a lot,

Oliver

TIR and Adrian will explane why there is vibration / chatter when using a spool.

Default DIFF BELT PULLEY WOBBLE...

even though it does not effect performance...
Some of the cyclone owners have complained about the diff pulley wobble...

I had some leftover BD diff pulleys. they are 40T.
BD pulley installed fine with no mods...and NO Wobble.
after installing it on the chassis..the belts were a little tight.
so I'll have to find some belts that are 2-3 teeth bigger front and rear.
had to slightly bevel the open slot on the chassis for clearance.
The 40T pulley changes the internal drive ratio from 2.4375 to exactly 2.5

another fix I'm thinking of is using smaller 2mm diff balls. unfortunately I don't have any 2mm diff balls...

it will work..but I need longer belts.
the stock belts are 170T front and 62T rear.

I need a belt that is around 172T and 63-64T
may get the BD front belt..it's 172T. finding the right rear belt
might be difficult.

jup, alreaday read that before, but what about the belt going left and right on the fixed pulley? I can't imagine that it's normal since when using the one-way pulley and the front one-way, the belt ran pretty straight

but hey, maybe it's normal and i'm just making a big deal out of it

thanks alot,

oliver

I have driven the TC4 and the Cyclone feels much better to drive. It also seem alot more responsive. It's also super easy to work on. everything is so much more accessible.
