I have been looking at set up sheets and when it points to what i think are the rear pivot blocks (F 1.5 R 1.5) is that two 1.5 deg blocks in the rear making 0 deg toe in?

It's probably a reference to the spacers used under the toe blocks

Thanks. What is your take on sway bars for this type of surface? I'm thinking I will take them off for now.

Anyone got some things to look at when trying to reduce understeer.

Running the same tires as others at the track, the rear seems stiffer than the front.

diff is slipping a little at the moment.

added a little more camber and that helped a little.

just looking for a few ideas

Is there anyway to use a TC5 Ball diff in the rear of the cyclone?

why would you need to do that??

if you did, you'd need:
correct belts - don't think the standard cyclone's will work
bearings
outdrives/cvd shafts (if the stock ones don't work)

Tighten up your diff. It should be smooth and not slipping.

Post your setup if possible. It will help others help you out much better.

Asphalt? Carpet?

I got everything sorted out.. However, my car seems like it pushes a bit coming into the corner... Actually it pushes a lot, where as I kind of have to use the brakes to swing it around. What do I need to change to give me a more turn-in? rear droop? It was a previous asphalt car, so I am trying to make the switch to carpet with it!
