Align DS610

Bit of a over kill but the best VFM servo i've found and the performance is exceptional.

Or failing that i run the old faithful Savox 1251.

thanks for the input guys. Next question. Anyone know where I can get a cyclone HB Pro Spec Diff Screw Set (w/ thrust bearing)

http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...id=472&id=7890

I need one shipped to California by Friday the 14th at the latest.

Also if anyone knows a good online / local shop in southern california that stocks a lot of cyclone parts that would be great too.

Korey,

Regarding your Exotek chassis setup for medium grip carpet (as posted here
) would you suggest any different settings for 13.5/17.5?

I showed this setup to a prior Cyclone team driver who recently defected to Associated (!), and he indicated that the indicated droop settings (9/10mm to center of the hinge pin) were more for mod where breaking is used a lot more than when using 13.5/17.5 BL motors.

Comments?

The new cvds your are asking are for the TCX?

Current Cyclone, Cyclone TC has 44mm universal or CVD drive shafts. The new TCX will come with 46mm universal drive shafts in the front and existing 44mm universal shafts in the rear.

Thanks,

I can see where he is coming from. Weight gets thrown around a lot more on a car in modified, so running that droop setting limits the amount of travel the car has, reducing the weight transfered as well. In spec racing classes, there isn't quite as much... so one may think to run a lower setting. Personally, my setups from mod to modern day spec racing are pretty similar. Spec racing classes are so fast now, the setups carry over well from modified. Thats just my opinion though.

For me, running a higher setting (like 10 front, 9 rear) keeps the car more stable and thats the main reason why I did that. When I got too aggressive with my car and it had a lower setting (like 9 front and 8 rear) it became unstable in the middle of the corner.

Just need to give it a try and see what works best for you!

-Korey
