I am using Vtec 5900 battery, but to fit it without using LiPo conversion Kit I have cutted 2mm of aluminium part place where it connects to upper deck. Also you will need to use shorter screw or cut 1mm of screw.

Default use of optional parts

Hi all,

I am curiuos about optional part like titanium coated shocks, metal diff cups, and other part that do not come in car KIT.
In ETS I have seen that in cyclone these parts are used, but what is the differece and is any better performance in it runing in stock class with 13.5 or 17.5 motors on very high grip carpet.

thers more resistent. I think theres no need for 13.5 motors.

Hey guys, I asked a few days ago about solving a rear traction problem with my cyclone and I am working on the changes. Does anyone know what changes to the front diff might help rear traction or help stop the rear from overtaking the front? I am currently running a solid front drive. Would it be better to go to a ball diff or one way up front?

Actually --you'll find the diff in the front will give the front MORE bite and steering. It won't help the rear----- softer springs on the rear---ensure you have 1.5 to 2 degrees of camber--and 3 degrees of tow in!! You could also put a swaybar on the front only--and lean the rear shocks in a little--middle hole on the bottom--3rd or 4th hole in on the top. All of that will help plant the rear.
FWIW

Thanks Tim. What do you think would be better for the front, The solid or the one way? We are running on low traction carpet.

The one ways will give a little more steering I THINK on carpet--the spool should be your best bet-- it will also allow you to get 4 wheel braking which is a good thing!!

I like a ball diff in the front only because I feel it is easier to drive, the problem is that you can't get off the corner with any speed/power. A one way will get you off the corner but I find that it has a mind of its own in which direction it's going to take to the next corner. It does carry good corner speed though. I run the spool.
The only way is to try all three and see what your lap times are.

For those who run in RCGT series with the Cyclone TC, here is a setup sheet for it.
I have run the setup at the west coast rc race way (indoor high bite track) last weekend and worked very well. I thought it would be good to share with everybody who loves RCGT.

As a rule, you'll like that one way better on fast tracks with large sweeping corners. They carry speed well, but due to only having 2 wheels braking can get a little dicey under braking. The spool (solid axle) won't turn in as hard, but will claw like a pissed off badger coming out of the corner. The ball diff is somewhere in the middle...you can get it to act somewhat like a spool if you tighten it up. I agree with jag88, the easiest to drive is with the diff up front.
