thanks for the help all, I actually found another box of spares that I had forgotten. So with the spares I had already, and electronics, I was able to build a second Cyclone today

the assembled car is 'run wherever I want to' car with a Mamba Max 5700kv; the bottom car still needs the shocks rebuilt and will be raced in carpet USGT



*shimmed both spur layshafts to reduce play as suggested by CraigMBA

Anyway, see attached photo. What I am experiencing I need to check is 'normal.' The 2 bearings pictured are 'sliding' and this is causing about 3mm of play left/right on the spur gear shaft. The mesh of the gears stays OK but not sure if this is going to be an issue.

Is this because the bearings are worn out? Or is this normal? It has been a while since I've run the car.

Thanks.......
Part of the problem is that you have the C shaped middle deck upside down in your car. The side with the wider notch that is over the bearing by the motor in your picture should be on the other side of the car. If you have the instruction manual refer to page 10, top left of the page shows the correct orientation of the upper and middle decks (narrow notch of the middle deck should be on the motor side of the car). Keep the drive gears as close together as possible so the belts line up then put just one shim between the motor side drive gear and the bearing, which will now fit nicely under the narrow notch of the middle deck. When done correctly, you end up with a little side to side play and both bearings securely held down by the middle deck.

If you have questions I'll take a picture of my Cyclone TC and send it to you.

petit RC has many setup sheets. Just look for one that has characteristics of your track. As for parts, many of the suspension parts carry over to the Cyclone TC, TCX, TCXX. Amain and Stormer still carry parts for the car

What are good replacement drive shafts for a cyclone tc that are stronger than the stock aluminum ones?

If you want the stock parts I have plenty but for hot bodies parts I use wheelspin.com in the UK. I'm using the HOT BODIES DCJ V2 units for the TCXX in my Cyclone TC. The SPEC R DCJ units for Tamiya cars also work.

I got out of racing back in 07, looking at getting back in now. I went through quite a few cars and by far the cyclone was my favorite. Looks like cyclone parts are too hard to find now to race. Due to budget I need a used car that isn't too pricey. Any newer hot bodies cars I might like that are still parts supported? Any other cars I might look at?
