shocks in middle holes rear
shocks in outer lower holes and middle holes in upper position.
Droop 3mm front and rear
5mm ride height.

It will have a good neutral feeling, If it pushes and will not turn lower the roll center spacers to 1mm and test again.

Good luck!
OK friend, I'll test this week and talking about the return result.

thanks

Just ran the car with the front end modification to the hinge pin blocks (widens the front end). It really smoothed out the car and made it hold corner speed well!

Drilling holes in the chassis and countersinking the carbon fiber to mount adjustable toe blocks on the rear part of the front hinge pin holders thus widening the front end.

Could you not just acheive that by fitting a 1 degree or 2 degree block on the rear of the front hingepins? No drilling required?

Its also interesting to note that Paul L has been running a wider front hinge pin spacing on his xray (started a couple of years ago).

Ask Paul Lemieux, RC America/MOTIV/Gravity RC

Mate just use the setup the guys are talking about at the top of this page 1.5 setup.. its perfect for my exotek chassis. I used lower top shims/spacers.. 1mm or nothing... but its a great setup and works everywhere for me.. hardly ever change it.

Cheers

Does the exotek chassis have the holes for the adjustable front track width?

Default Cyclone s upgrades

Beings as this thread has over 19,000 replies, I'll ask here.

Is there any parts off the newer Cyclones that will work on the Cyclone S ?

Any recommended upgrades to the S version ?

thanks

Everything from the Cyclone WCE, Hara, TC will cross over to the Cyclone S... so the S can be fully upgraded to a TC but not a TCX.. I think the S works fine in standard form in the 17.5 and lower classes.. maybe change the front diff to a spool and upgrade the centre pulleys when they break to the Cyclone WCE 16T ones.. as the TC 18T ones will need a belt change.. get a full set of HPI spings.. thats it... until u want some purple on the car. Sway bar might help too..
