you need to explain what "the sun" is first..... before you start talking to him about a tan.

he might freak out when he sees a big flaming ball in the sky. he might think its a meteor like the one that wiped out the dinosaurs.

If Korey saw a meteor hit he'd probably figure out how it could have hit faster....LOL

I just picked the TC up in a trade. threw electronics in it and nearly tq with no practice or setup. Car is good but why are the ball diffs built with such cheap plastic? Why are there no alloy upgrades that can take the heat? Im not too thrilled about having my rear diff melting after 3 runs. Did i make a mistake? Can someone shoot some ideas THAT WORK!?

You did something work because the plastic diff can take some abuse. I'm thinking that you possibly may have had your diff too loose if it melted in 3 runs.

I'll have to agree with Clint on this. I've been running my POM outdrives on my diff have lasted me about 3-4 months of open modified racing. POM is a type of plastic that is very durable. So 3 runs and melting seems really unreasonable unless the diff was extremely loose. The diff will heat up to a point, but not to the melting point of plastic unless something is really wrong.

I would just rebuild the diff. get some fresh diff rings, sand them down till they are flat, get some ceramic differential balls and break it in properly. The Pro Diff that comes in the Cyclone TC is easily the best diff I've ever delt with, so it shouldn't be giving you any issues.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. Some us may be a little quiet for the next week as we'll be at the ROAR Paved Electric Nationals. I'll try and pop on every night and check on the thread though.

Thanks for the quick reply guys. But no i didnt touch the car. It went from seller to me to the track. Usually i go thru a used chassis but this one was in killer shape. Smonth diff with no barking. But thats cool i have the pro diff on order anyway. So what u all are saying is that theres nothing special or voodooed up for maximun efficiency? No tamiya, yoke or other hybrid parts?....just P0D/M and im set?

I recently got a exotek hbx chassis for my cyclone tc and was wondering how people have their electronics installed and where abouts they have their battery set.

I am using a speed passion 2.0 LPF which isnt the smallest esc in the world

I have also tried flipping the belt to the other side but its very close to rubbing on my battery now , also it looks like id have to add weight to the esc side because of having to hang the lipo over the edge so much so the belt doesnt touch it

Any ideas or pictures of your installs anyone ?

Thankyou

With my exotek I had to run the the battery on the widest setting when running a H/W or SP.. also had run the RX on top of the servo as it just wouldnt fit as the speedo and capacitor is so big.. no weight was needed with a 5000mah battery to balance or to be legal at 1425 weight limit.

Cheers
