Thanks, I'm trying to set my car for VTA 21.5 brushless seems as if the FDR will be around 3.75 - 5.1.

Howdy,

I've recently developed a mid corner oversteer problem. Doesn't seem to matter if its a high speed or tight slow speed corners.

The track surface is painted bitumen with medium+ grip depending on weather and conditions.

I have recently changed from Sorex 32's to Muchmore 32's and was all right for a few meetings until in the last two outings welcomed me to oversteer city.

I generally run the HPI blues with AE30 weight oil with 2 hole pistons with no rebound rubbers. It was recommended by a club member to try going to Silvers which helped a little and when I tried the Pinks it was just as bad as the blues.

Any suggestions on things to try and change to eliminate the oversteer would be greatly appreciated.

Run hpi white springs in the front and you blue springs in the back middle shock tower positions.

2 deg camber all around go from there should plant the rear nicely. if to much over steer drop the rear shocks down. under steer drop the front shocks down. lower traction all around drop all the shocks down. there should be a decent split front to rear in shock springs front harder than the rear. just play around in the spring range i gave you. its rare to get a car to handle great with same springs all around.

I think, Silver front, blue rear can help you, a litle more oil (35-40), is your rear diff in good conditions? , and see if the knukles move free up-down, the cvd are clean and smooth, and see if when you move up the knukles the blade does not touch with the diff force the movement.

Sorry for my english, i hope help you.

I found on my Cyclone that the rear end was too soft and the inside tire was comming off the ground causing the rear end to snap around. I added stiffer springs and corrected the problem. I ran carpet indoors with low to medium grip. 18 or 19 lb. front springs and 45 wt oil. 14 or 15lb. springs in rear with 35-40 wt oil.

Thanks all for the responses. There is a club meeting this weekend that I'll give the recommendations a go at. I'll let you know how I get on.

VTA with a 21.5 novak motors is MAX FDR of 4.2 - so you'd be looking at 4.2 to 5.1 for a range

only with the 25.5 motor does the FDR limitation go away -- unless you're track doesn't follow the USVTA rules

I just picked up a cyclone TC, and plan to run a 6.5T in it. What FDR would be reasonable for a medium sized tight track? 9? 10?

Hi guys, I recently got myself a used HB Cyclone (as far as I know, it's just the Cyclone or is it the Cyclone TC?)
It has a 64p spur gear but Ive been told it's much more common to use a 48p gear. Does anybody know where I can get 48p gears for it? I live in Australia BTW, but I can get it from anywhere really. I do most of my RC Shopping from AMain anyway!

For C-Hubs and steering knuckles look for 3 Racing Sakura parts, they are a direct fit and even the wishbones and Hingepins fit, although to use the 3Racing hinge pins on cyclone wishbones involves drilling out the OUTER ones to 3mm, not the end of the world as the parts are half the price of Hot Bodies / HPI parts.

Thought it may help those of us who are cash strapped.

Cherry, will the Sakura front 46mm dogbones fit the Cyclone? Concerned about slop from the pins on both ends.

Don't need to the geometry is identical so can use proper Cyclone ones or just buy the 3Racing Hardened steel Cyclone ones they are the same price as the Sakura ones
