A couple of pages back u put a pick of ur gear diff in the car.. there is not that much slop.. only a couple of mm's..some shimms would work ok.. just not wide ones.. thin like the hot bodies diff shims..
warnos have u got a pic of the gear diff in your tc?

also what size was the wider bearing you used?

cheers shane

Just picked up a Cyclone TC for VTA Class. Looking for a FDR around 4.0. Does anybody have recommended gearing to reach this ratio with a spur/pinion that will fit onto the Cyclone TC???
thanks

Try gearchart.com and you can print a whole list for you.

But in the meantime, a 90t spur with a 48t pinion (4.06ish) or a 90/49 (3.98) is as close as you get

I just picked up a used Cyclone (S I think) and the one thing I noticed it that the spur gear was only 81 teeth. I tried to put an 84 teeth that came with it and the gears are rubbing on the bottom cassis. Can anyone help me. This is my first on road car. oh yeah the cassis is plastic so pretty sure it is some form of Cyclone S.

Sounds like 48 pitch gears. Run 64 pitch. I've got mine geared 58/82 and the spur is pretty far from the bottom of the chassis.

Sorry to hijack (?) the thread, but I sold my cyclone, and I have a shell: LTC-R that is brand new and custom painted, It was mounted as a display body and never run. May be of use to someone here. PM if interested, thanks.

Custom Painted shell for HB Cyclone,LTC-R

The MIP CVDs that came with the pro 4 are 46mm. They might bottom out in the front diff or spool since the car was designed to be used with 44mm. I don't know for sure because I have never tried this.
