CHE-SS - Shock Slime (5g)
CHE-TG - Thrust Grease (5g)
CHE-JG - Joint Grease (5g)
CHE-DG - Diff Grease (5g)

my guess is its the joint grease....

It didn't get translated, but #9 only says "Low Friction Grease." Doesn't specify much.

Just a basic description of what more/less Ackerman will get you. For the most part very few people mess with Ackerman angles, at most you might see top-level racers changing the steering knuckle link locations.

I think the main problem is me. Iím so used to the Pro4 and know when the right time to start turning in is, but it is about a metre to soon compared with the Cyclone. A bit more practice and this should be addressed.

I remember reading on this thread a while back, that some of you have moved the top of the front shocks in to reduce the steering sharpness, would that be correct? I currently have the top of my shocks in hole three (outside in) What do you guys do?

Cheers Ears.

Oh yeh, first impression of the Cyclone on carpet, Fan-bloody-tastic!! Roll on next Tuesday.
you can put a 1.5 degree or 2 degree or even 0 front block to make the steering less agressive if you want and i agree with you What a car on carpet with foams you might run with rubber ?

Thanks ngo8

Will try changing the front pivot as suggested next week.

BTW that run was on rubber! Iíve never raced with foams.

Cheers dude

I have them. They're nice although I have snapped one of the axles after a hard hit.

so you ran: Front One-way, Center One-way, Rear Diff?

what pistons? kit 3x1.1?

what class? if its not mod you can probably run 2.5 rear toe block.

Also given the spacing under the pivot blocks, you may be able to run more shims under your camber links. I am guessing that Hara ran very low spacing because of the massive traction at IIC. So you probably can run more spacers to increase cornering.

But yes one-way is recommended for rubber tires (asphalt and carpet). You should only need diff on carpet with foams.

a lot of the guys I know use a diff up front as the tracks are generally quite small and technical. Outdoors on asphalt, its mainly spools with the top guys using one-ways.
