Its all going to depend on the track you run at Im afraid.

Our tracks in the UK with 19t can range from around 4.5 to 5.4fdr it really depends on the track.

The reason why I ask is Im running on a low to med bite asphault with rubber tires I just want to know if you get more or less traction
when you shim the blocks it will lose traction.BUT!!!!!!,when you have the blocks too low(smaller or no shims),you can actually have too much traction or roll at that end of the car and cause your tires to overheat.you want to run them at a height where you have maximum traction without heating up the tires.when you find this your car will run the most efficient.what i do is start with no shims,then i run a battery pack in the car and run it for the 5 minute period.i check my laptimes and feel if the car fades towards the end of the run.i also check for excessive chassis roll or scratches on the chassis from roll.then i start raising the blocks in .25mm increments until i achieve maximum traction with minimal chassis roll and heat from the tires.as soon as you feel the car to start losing its traction you have raised them too much.after this i start with adjusting the shimming of the inboard camber link for the fine tuning.this works the same but is just not as much of a coarse adjustment.i hope i am making sense here.if i am not clear on my explination please let me know and i will explain it differently.hope i helped out

Thanks for the info, seems like HB want to be very awkward I think I may have to get the steel ones and file them down to fit if they don't, I wonder why Mirage no longer list the front steel dogbones?

My TiR CVD axle snapped off today. It snapped right between the steering knuckle and the hex hub. I was pretty surprised as I didn't crash very hard prior to it snapping.

Anyways anyone know where I could get TiR parts other then titaniumracing.com ?

Also for those who are running the STEEL universal drive shaft in the front, do they get bent easily?

Hey Kid, talk to Rick Austin he runs Cyclone at Natex and wins most of the races, i know he uses UFRA tyres 42R on the front and 40R on the rear with a one way, he will be at the enduro so you can speak to him there.

When did you get a Cyclone?

Nick

good day to all, I am planning in acquiring a cyclone and have some questions about this car.(I tried searching the thread but I have dial up it's just so slow) anyways I hope you guys can lend a hand.


?durabilty?-- my friend drives a Pro4 and to my understanding they share some of the parts, my friends pro4 easily breaks, specially the spindles and arms; is this the same thing with the cyclone? what parts are they similar?
I only run on carpet, does HB or any aftermarket manufacturer makes a ball diff. or can you use your rear diff for the front.

Also one last thing, I'm just getting a cyclone not the hara or Sur, ed. is it still worth it purchasing just the standard ed.?

Thanks in advnce, any help is appreciated.

The Cyclone and the Pro 4 share their hubs and wishbones, amongst other parts. I agree that the standard knuckles and possibly C-hubs aren't too strong but you can always get some aluminium ones which will sort your problem out forever.

The rear diff will fit in the front.

It depends what sort of things you are likely to buy for your standard Cyclone as to whether it's worth it or not. There are a few interesting parts in there which may be worthwhile, such as the updated bulkheads, thicker driveshafts. Also, if you are wanting a spool then the Hara/Surikarn ed is probably worth the extra money as you will then not have to buy a spool and solid pulley separately. The next question is are you bothered about the bling and speciality factor? The Hara/Surikarn eds look extrememly nice and from what I gather they are quite limited as to how many there will be.
