Have you looked at trying the HB CRF stetup which was posted on here a while back by Stew Noble? This setup works extremely well with both 1ways and spool apart from a change of ackerman.

Spool - 2mm
1way - 4mm

Also are you running mod? if not I wudn't bother with the spool, stick a 1way in and try that.

Hope this helps,

Phil.

Hi, Yeah i tried stews set up at carpet wars and the car was really good, but on another track it was really bad. I have a good basic set up with a one way for this track(one of snowys) but i wanted to try a spool as it would let me be more aggresive. Im running stock and 19t.

Thanks.

The thin spool/1way pulleys are for units with 4 holes where the wide ones are for the black cyclone with 3 holes.

Tez,

Ok that sounds fair,

If you post the setup you tried and the problems you were having I'm sure Ill be able to help, if not someone else.

Also what tyres were you running?

Cheers,

Phil

cheers t.k
For a narrow pulley on a black old pattern 1way unit, use a narrow rear diff pulley.

This is a question mainly for Jason from BMI, but anybody can answer it if they can. I am thinking of getting on Cyclone, I have never ran one but I know that I want to get the BMI kit for it. I have used Jason's products before and know they are awesome. Where can I get a picture of a BMI Cyclone, what all is included? Chassis, Shock Towers, and the Upper Decks. What are the thickness of them, and most of all what is the price of the complete kit. I have check the BMI website and it doesn't have any pictures of the Clone on there.

Also where, if any, set-up sheats for it. Mainly Larry Fairtrace and Jason Sheflers (sp?) from the 'Birds.

Thanks

It comes with bottom plate, both top decks, shock towers, and stand-offs (with mounting hardware). All is 3mm satin finish CF and the stand-offs are aluminum. Best bet is to call the shop and they will fill you in on all the pricing and shipping info.

If you want a surikarn your gonna have to buy used, all the new ones have been gone for almost 6 months.

Or you can get a black one for 200 bones.

That is the route I'm going. After watching Larry and Jason at the 'Birds it kinda peaked my interest in the car. Of course the 200 for one NIB you can't beat that.

...is there anything "Special" I should get for my Clone as I build it? Other than the BMI kit. I have been reading about the diff screw problem. Are Corally Spring the Springs of choice? or are HPI PRo4 spring being used also?
