What I hear is parts are only manufactured every 6 months. And that HB underestimated the demand during the last manufacture run.

Maybe an HB representative can answer the parts shortage?

It's about 22 mm between bearings.
Last Race somone used 2 geardiffs for his car, front with 100.000 oil (we called it softspool *g*), back as it comes (something like 1000 or 2000). It was a T3 but don't matters.
I thing it should run also real good with a TC or TCX.

Default low grip carpet setup for cyclone

I am in need of a low grip carpet set up for my Surikarn Cyclone in 17.5 TC.

I have a v3 spool & dcj's up front, I have cut the two top decks and have the front suspension block mod on the car.

I just bought this car and any help would be appreciated.

Err what is low grip carpet. In canberra (aus) there is a track running on standard industrial carpet tiling with foams and no traction additive allowed.

Generally speaking it was found that the standard setup was pretty good baseline. I found playing with hard springs just made everything worse.

But take out shims from the ackerman to reduce initial steering.

Wait, do you mean 22mm or 2,2mm?
Could anybody confirm about this, please?
I think 22mm is too exaggerated, then 2,2mm could more possible and acceptable, isn't it?

Best regards

OK, he said Sakura's 2 bearings difference is just about 22mm, then TC is just 26.7mm, isn't it?
But just add 4,7mm shims into the diff isn't acceptable?

Best regards

Yes he will want to shim between the bearing out a total of 4.7mm or so.

Wow, look likes could be difficult for choosing gear diff for old TC, i know Spec-R will release for TCX, unfortunately the new car comes with narrower bulkhead as well.

Thanks anyway!

hi guys

i'm using a spec-r tam in my cyclone tc for quit a while now and it works awesome
you need to space your bearing 2mm inside left and right
i did that whit an old shock clip from 2mm than you only need to shim the diff 2 mm +-
further parts used,
-old cyclone belts from the first cyclone
-tam drive shafts and blades
tam diff pulley

fits perfectly and runs awesome no need to do diff rebuilts

running 80from losi in the rear
