Front
pink springs
40wt AE oil
3 position on the shock tower
2 hole piston
outside hole on front pro4 arm
1.4 front sway bar
2.5 front block
droop 3mm on blocks
1.5 mm under all front suspension blocksresponce
4mm ackerm
2mm spacer under front camber tie rod
2 of camber
5.5mm ride height

Rear
blue springs
40wt AE oil
#2 pistons
4 position on the shock tower
middle hole on old pro 4 arm
1.2 rear sway bar
3.0 rear block
droop 4mm
1.5 mm shims under all suspension blocks.
rear hub spacers 2.0/front, 0.75/rear
1.5mm spacer under rear camber tie rod
arms all the way back 2.0mm in front of arm, 0.75 behind of arm.
2 degrees of camber
6mm ride height

This is my setup at the moment on sores 36R. 2nd place in the mains 3rd fastest in qualifying. Car felt really good. Car kinda feels soft for me in the rear with the blue springs, but I can get used to that.

My question now would be the 3 hole pistons. What kind of handling chages will I feel? And maybe upping the front oil rate to say 45w and leaving the rear at 40W

The track is a a little bit bumpy, hence the higher ride height. Can anyone tell me also if my droop seems correct? I am still learning about this setting.

Hi!!!
I removed the battery brace Exotek, because, for m il too heavy.
and replaced with battery Brace Top.
Battery brace TOP is much lighter and adjustable, comes with 2 mounting options, short lateral support (mounted in photo) and support laterlale to add any weight.
I preferred the Move Lipo for my cyclone
is perfect for Exotek Chassis.

ok guys, i got a really, really, really, really, really, really silly question...

the center oneway - does the one way pulley go to the front or the rear? its always been my understanding the oneway pulley goes to the front (be it a diff or spool or oneway), but i was looking at the Cyclone manual (on page 12) and it DEFINITELY shows the one way pulley going to the rear - which is kinda stumping me as to why...

So Korey, Hiro anyone got an explanation why it would go to the rear instead of the front? or is it just a mis-print in the manual??

I just looked at a WCE manual and it shows the center oneway on the front belt...

so i'm assuming the 'standard' cyclone just has a misprint?

so if it is a mis-print in the 'standard' manual, what are you guys using to hold the oneway pulley in place and not sliding around on the center shaft?

make any sense

thanks!

Hi,
I have checked all the instruction manuals for cyclone series but all show that the center one-way pulley is for front drive belt.

To adjust the center one-way pulley, you need to adjust the spur gear holder and spur gear holder actually holds the one-way center pulley.

Thanks,
