On the std motor mount, 108 is the absolute max and that's flush if not slightly out the bottom deck.

On the brushless motor mount, I you can get about 116 fitted, I run 115 and that's got enough clearance to be safe

WOW I've been using Xray and the purple HPI 116-64p spur gears for more the 3 years with the optional HB BL motor mount. I'm now using the lipo mount with the 2mm spacer that comes with it.

Yes I had to take a little off the RTP but the 116 will NOT stick out past the bottom of my 2 HB V1,V2 & 1 BMI chassis AT ALL.

I just picked up a Cyclone TC that I plan on running in my clubs 17.5 TC class. I have a Ballistic 17.5/Havoc Pro ESC and a SMC 4200 for power. The track is aprox. 60x36.

What would be a good starting point for FDR? The Ballistic specs call out a FDR of 4. But I think that will be too high for the size of our track.

What is the stock chassis thickness VS the exotek? My exotek chassis might be thinner.

I am using the (os.3racing.hk/products.php?products_key=2064) 3racing aluminum motor mount

Is that comparable to the (hotbodiesonline.com/products/en/61298.html) Brushless motor mount
or the (hotbodiesonline.com/products/en/61314.html) aluminum motor mount?

I am using the lipo conversion, so I am trying to figure out if I need to use the spacer under the deck mount.

I have the 3R motor mount and use an ORCA lipo with no shims needed.

Thats very funny I like using large spur gears because I can use a slightly larger pinion and still get the FDR needed for my mod (3cell 5700KV) @ 24/116.
I was using the 16 tooth lay shaft pulleys, now using the 18's.
I see there will be 20 tooth so for MOD racing the larger spurs will help. The bigger lay shaft pulleys seems to help the life of the belts.

Hi Guys
I notice on the new car TCX, that they didn't take the oppotunity to re-design how to change the way you alter the roll centre, like it can be on the X-Ray 09 for instance, instead of those pesky 1mm 1.5mm etc washers, also the way the ackerman could be altered to, I personally think HB missed a great oppotunity to have a 100% perfect car imo

Cheers Malc TCCFM

I'll agree on the ackerman... Xray is super easy.

Not so much on the camber link adjustment. With the TCX it's only limited by the thickness of the shim(s) you put in. On the Xray you're at the mercy of the QRC things. If you're using the L1/L2 QRC adjusters the change between the 4 positions is huge. No fine adjustments there unless you want to pay for the original and H1/H2 adjusters (not cheap for what they are, then again nothing Xray is cheap ) Even then the adjustment range is too coarse.

Don't get me wrong I like my T3, but I'm really looking forward to seeing the TCX perform

Fair enough about the roll centres adjustments like the 09, but maybe they could of made the idea with finner increments, or maybe they could produce shim plates like they did with the Pro 4, which is far easier than single shim replacement.
