EA got the idea from Billy in Memphis

When Enid starts going big time in the next few months you might have to make a trip EA. More rubber tire fun. I know how much you like rubber tires

I have a set..they do not fit the cyclone battery slots..
you have to do some extensive dremel work to make them work.

Please, could someone help me? I need to know a good starting gear ratio for the Cyclone S. The stock spur gear was to small. What spur and pinion combo works in the car. I will be running on asphalt my first time in a long while with a TC. I have been mainly running 12th scale. I have seen the setups for mod, but I have not seen setups for stock. The motor that is going to be used is CO27. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

the car rolls because as you lean the shock in you decrease the stiffness of the shock, both oil and spring. you also decrease the linearity (softer initially, then ramps up).
this can be a valuable tool for bumps. it can also simulate a softer spring to a degree, since the spring may be initially as soft as the next step spring, but get a little stiffer with travel.

Just completed building my Cyclone. The kit comes with a 100t spur. I'm using a Novak Brushless 4.5. Novak recommends running a final of 9.75-10..25 with this motor. Here is my problem: With the 100t spur you have to run a 25t pinion to get a final of 9.75. At 25/100 the pinion does not get even close to mesh up. I can get to 9.75 at 32/128, but I don't know if the large spur would clear the rear graphite brace. Who else is running a Novak 4.5 in this car and what gear ratio are you running? Thanks so much.
Ron

Thanks Dave.
Do you know if the aluminum heatsink bulkhead brace allows for a larger spur?

108 is the biggest you can get on the car without some work. 110 pokes out the bottom just enough to make it not worth trying. With the new aluminum heatsink you have no problem with either gear.

what is the model number on this new heat sink? will this also be an issue with the cyclone s?

can you run 48p spurs in a cyclone?
