Very good point. It looks like it would interfere with the swaybar.

I tried to make these as "generic" as possible and might need a quick hit with the dremel to fit over the swaybar mounts no biggie..

Hey all. I just ordered a Cyclone (non Alan Moore Ed.) from Stormer and had a few (very) basic questions I hope you guys can help me with.

- Firstly, have anyone of you guys had any success in setting up your HB's for drifting?

- I might be completely wrong, but somewhere I read that Hot Bodies were somehow affiliated with HPI Is this really the case?

- Does the Cyclone support the use of 'standard' long battery packs at all?

- What else do I need to know to preparer myself for running the cyclone?

It should have better drivetrain rotation with less friction i suppose.

i have my cyclone set up for drifting, it works very well, you can take a look at my setup here :
cyclone drifting setup

oh if you don't have an account on that forum you may not be able to see the post, but anyway here's the setup i used :

Setup for Cyclone (Standard/Surikarn/Hara Editions) :

Ground Types
Ground Type 1 : Unsheltered MSCP Concrete Ground (e.g. Serangoon MSCP Top Level, Simei MSCP Top Level etc.)
Ground Type 2 : Sheltered MSCP Concrete Ground & Void Deck (e.g. Bukit Batok MSCP, Serangoon & Simei MSCP 2nd Level etc.)

Electronics

Receiver : Nomadio V2 Transceiver
Servo : Futaba S3050 Digital (High-Torque) Servo
ESC : Futaba MC330CR

Steering EPA - Left : 82%
Steering EPA - Right : 82%
Steering Dual Rate : 83%
Steering Exponential : -27%

Throttle EPA : 100%
Throttle Exponential : -10%

Droop : 2mm
Ackerman : Stock
Shocks : Stock
Shock Mount Position - Top : 4th hole counting from centre of chassis
Shock Mount Position - Bottom : 1st hole counting from centre of chassis
Shock Springs : Yellow
Shock - Adjustable Gap : 7.5mm
Shock - Oil Weight : 0 (No Oil) (Just put a little shock oil around the O-ring where the metal shaft passes through in the shock)
Belt Tension : Groove on bearing holder faces the front
Version 3 Solid Axle
Universal Drive Shaft Set - use the steel dogbones, they're much more durable than the aluminum ones

Rear

Camber : 0 degrees
Castor : Stock
Ride Height : approx. 8.5-9.0mm (with battery on car)
Droop : 2mm

Version 3 Solid Axle, with Non-universal regular steel dogbones and wheel axles

Wheels : PVC, with SGDrifters brand rims

Motor : Tamiya Super Stock TZ

Gearing : 96T Spur (Stock) and 40T Pinion : Gear Ratio is (96/40)x2.4375 = 5.85:1

Remarks :
NA

(note that this setup is using pvc tyres, running on reasonably smooth concrete ground)

the cyclone in the standard config only supports side by side battery packs. but i have modified the chassis a little to use stick packs (using the pro4 stick pack holders :


if you want i can post some closeup pics of what i did to have the stick pack there. it's pretty simple change.

IMHO the bodies have the following characteristics:

Quote:
1. Ride Accord B
My favourite body. Lots of downforce both front and rear, easy to drive, high speed stability is ok. Use it on carpet and small/medium outdoor tracks. Also has an imprint so it's legal for use in races (depends on your rules).

Quote:
2. Ride Stratus 3
If you are referring to MK3, it's good for large floating tracks. Tons of rear downforce, less steering than Accord. AFAIK no imprint.

Quote:
3. Moore Mazda
Lots of steering, pretty aggressive body. Don't like it that much, go with the protoform Mazda's instead. I use it only at LRP/HPI challenge races.

Quote:
4. Moore Stratus
Never tried this one, but according to some drivers at my club, easy to handle body with less downforce than Moorespeed Mazda. Good for large, floating tracks.

HTH
