Thanx.
Hi Sorry, I just thought that since it was just Cyclone stuff and it would be okay, will just put some sort of link up in future.

Quick question ..... where do you look first when trying to get more mid corner / on power steering ? I'm new to the TC but have spent the last year or so running 1/12th scale (lots of corner speed). That said, it just seems to me that I should be able to push the car harder through the corners. I lose a lot of speed waiting for the car to turn enough so I can get back on power. If I push it mid corner it will swing wide. I'm not really looking for suggestions to my current set up as much as I'm looking to peoples theories when trying to resolve such an issue. I believe initial turn in is more of a front end thing, whereas this issue may best be served by rear end adjustments ? Any insight is appreciated.

Hi tha Beast, the DCJ's are made of steel not alum.

I am confused with the TC arm mounting positions. I want the rear to feel softer without moving the shock position on the tower. I now have it on the three position. Would moving it more inside make it softer or outward towards the tire?

Well yes I know, but that does not answer my question. I want to know the affect of the the different arm positions on the TC

I would try hole#2 on the TC arms (rear), it feels softer and rotates better especially when on power.

Im looking for the theory behind the mounting positions. So 1 being the softest 5 being the hardest? or is it reverse? hmmm maybe im asking the wrong question....

Yes, as it has the flat spots on both sides of
the layshaft so is for direct drive :-)
