I ran mine for a year and a half and never needed to replace them . I just replace diff rings and thrust bearings.

To me the Ceramic balls last longer and feel smoother better than carbide balls.

Default Exotek Chassis

For the guys that are running the new exotek chassis.. I find the car is easy to balance with belts in the standard config or in the new configuration.

Is there a weight which is better in one configuration or is it just personal pref. I run the car with a 1425 in it which is 30 gram plus a 5000Mah battery.

What do most of you with the new exotek chassis run in regards to belt setup...

Cheers

I am running the std belt setup. If I were trying to get down to 1350g, I'd run carbon fiber cups, and the "new" belt configuration. The way ROAR rules are at the moment, steel cups and std belt configuration like you have is just about right (just as you have experienced )

Hey Guys, Just want to thank those of you who replied to my traction issues a week or so back. The car is much better and I was running 3rd in our clubs main til I caught a board and broke a rear arm Now I ca =n finally start focusing on driving

Any one have any suggestions on tires? I am running CS 27's and It seems there could be better out there for our slick carpet.

Also I am still running the smaller rear diff from the original Hara kit, what would be the advantage to upgrading to the diff with the larger rings?

Hoping soon to give back to the thread!

simply, yes!
the pro-diff is much smoother and lasts longer between builds.

Yes, I run 48p in my TC, however, I am running a 10.5. Not sure what kind of gearing you would want for 5.5.

With the Cyclone TC with the 18T centre pulleys, run a 81T spur with a 21t or 20t pinion


With older cyclone that has 16T centre pulleys run a 81T spur with a 23t or 24t Pinion


How much timing in esc and motor can have a huge impact tho also the track size.

But that should be right as long as your not running excessive timing.


the 81T is the bigest i would run that will fit comfortably without hitting the rear top deck or hanging out bottom of chassis. unless you have the optional brushless motor mount which raises the spur gear shaft 2mm.


the total teeth count of pinion and spur added together must equal 100Teeth or more other wise the motor wont reech the spur.


I have not run the cyclone for a year or so. but im prety sure my memory is serving me correct.
