Default AE diff screw

I actually broke several TC3 diff screws in stock.... needed a stronger screw quick for 19T carpet at the Indoor Champs and fast!

I found an excellent alternative and have broken none since.

UNITED TITANIUM sells very high grade 6-4 titanium screws. They are a bit pricey at $10 a piece and a minimum order of $100, but a small price to pay to finish your race and if you have friends that also need them.

The screws I bought are 2-56 x 1 inch socket cap 6-4 Titanium
(equivelent to Grade 5 Steel in strength)

I spoke with Ed and told him that I'm sure others would be calling

Default Xray T2 Steering Knuckles Work with Cyclone

FYI: Xray T2 front steering knuckles and hubs work nicely with the Cyclone. We have found them to be a bit stronger, too, and gives a bit better steering and ackerman.

On the topic of parts from other manufacturers fitting well..

Someone told me that the tamiya cvd rebuild kits workd perfectly in the cyclone cvd's as well.
Part number 53500.

I've also heard of Tamiya guys swapping tamiya arms/c-hubs and knuckles out for the Cyclone equivalents for better strength!

Can anyone tell how the 2mm or 4mm anchorman settings affect the car? Also ive got a oneway in at the moment for carpet, i like the turn in but it reacts just too quickly any ideas on how to change that, im using a 1.5 front toe bar. Thanks!!

Not 100% sure, but I believe going from 4mm to 2mm will make the car more reactive to steering change, eg. more aggressive......

There are many things you can tune to reduce steering, but what are you chasing, less turn-in, less turn-out, less reactive steering, or reduced steering overall?

you will want to stay with 4mm shims on the steering rack.reducing the amount of shims will increase your mid corner and exit steering which will give a funny feel with the oneway.to tone the steering down,i always make sure to grease the oneway bearings to eliminte some of the freewheel action and then from there i mess with diff tension.i will tighten the rear diff a little at a time to tone down the rotation of the car.i do this in small increments as i drive the car.hope this helps.

That said - some slight grinding on the motor mounting holes on the motor-mount will allow you to move the motor closer to the spur.

I haven't done it myself, but it shouldn't be too hard..
Just a quick dremel job..
just thourt i would say it is not the screw slots u gota grind. it is the atchle motor mount its self wer the motor sits in if u push it as far back as it goes u will see it hits the edge (the stickyout bit lol) so u have to dreamal that back and make it slighty larger i t wont dramal far tho as i have done it im runing 48dp at the min (til i get some cash) and by dreamaling it out i gaind space to fitt 2teeth smaller pinion.

and if anyone noes whats the bigest spur in 48dp i got a 81 on at the min n not quite out the bottom.

cheers bob

Hey Marcos.

Got a pic of your Cyclone with the mini Spekturm in it handy?
I pulled all the electronics out of the cyclone to try to reduce the amount of weight needed on the battery side.
I've got the GTB mounted on it's side right next to the topdeck now. I'd rather mount it flat per usual and hope that the mini fits in there without having to cut the ears off my servo and taping it down. (Don't like sticking things down in the car. Seems like it might move around. Esp. in sumemr when things get hot!)


Cheers!

I too have had trouble with the “Heavy Duty” diff screw, snapped about 4 now, all breaking at the neck of the shoulder and thread point of the screw. All screws broke while kissing the raised ripple of the corner. Car gets a little air on one side and bang… 2WD…hmmm.

Went to the AE version and it has lasted the longest, but the nut broke this time 2 weeks ago, (when a friend was using my car over several weeks).

Still trying to find a permanent solution....

I would be interested in how titanium goes... would have thought it would be weaker then high tensile steel... keep us posted please...
