Thanks for the kind words Jason. Once I get some cash together I will be getting the carpet chassis before I hit carpet. I gotta wait a bit on that though.
thanks!

Depending on what you need you may have to hit up a few places.

OK, I bought me a Cyclone S recently. I am upgrading parts as I break them. I need to know the stock number for some CVD's. These dogbones are driven me nuts. The next thing is some good turnbuckles and cups. I am ordering the spool and some other stuff. Do I need aluminum pivot blocks?

Anything else that you guys could think of that a new cyclone racer would need. Do I need a belt tensioner?

Thanks in advance.

Scuba steve-
Why so much droop in the foam tire setup?

Thanks

robk- That's just the reading on the droop gauge that I used as a baseline...

that should translate to 2 mm uptravel from ride height both front and rear.

Well, there really isn't a calculation... it is dependant on your ride height and your tire size...

basically what I do is set my ride height (say 4.5 mm in the rear for example)

Then I will slide the gauge under the chassis until the car is 6.5mm high in the rear and set the droops so that the tires just come out of contact with the flat board.

Then I will take the tires off and check to see what the droop is set to via the gauge and generally try to keep that as a good reference and keep using the same sized tires... which is easy to do if you run new tires every run... but most people will be using used tires...so I recommend the ride-height gauge method.

Ah ok. So its mainly just a thing for foams to keep your setting consistant with tire wear. Gotcha. Thanks man.

I havent ran mine on carpet yet, but some have. Right now the only ones I know of were for the bmi conversion, you may be able to use that as a starting point. There are some setups posted on the Cyclone Depot site which is linked in my sig, or you can flip back a few pages and look for a post by Tim Stamper. He posted a setup, I think it was for stock, back there.

the Hara foam setup would get you close, although he was running Mod, and the bite might not be the same where you are... i would probably go lighter on the swaybars and give it a shot.

i am in the process of rebuilding my car with the BMI chassis... very nice piece! it is waaay stiffer than the stock set, even without the stiffener posts installed. hope to start running foams more soon, so should be good there...
