Just took the car for 2 pack run to try it out at the local track. First impressions,
1/much more steer than the MRE
2/ much less under steer than the MRE
3/ Much better mid corner control than the MRE
4/I think the car is a real winner.
I am running the same setup as the standard setup from the box.
The gold coast track is wide and very fast, so I will be running at Meakin Park in a few week's which is a lot tighter and much more technical. I will talk to 2-bad who is a member a Meakin and get some final tips from him, I hope. I may just sneak up and keep looking over his shoulder when he is not looking.
But end result I love the car.

Default I'm backkkkkk

Still rocking the Pro4, but couldnt help but take cheehtae up on the deal on a once used Cyclone. Going 48 pitch. Stuck an 81t spur. Dropping a 3.5 in it. Based on the 3.5 in the Pro4, FD 9.23. Motor is now breaking 110 degrees. Figured I would do something similiar for the Cyclone and drop a 20T pinion givng me FD 9.87. What should I expect? I run against nitros, wide open track, longer straights. Set-ups.....81T leaves me a gnats hair of space, can I go larger???

Those guy's would not beleive me that I have gone across to Cyclone. I had so much Tamiya stuff. But I can say I feel that the Cyclone is a better made car. Production wise of the car is 10/10 and it 100% felt better at the track. I would have stayed at Tamiya if I had not decided to sell the car and give R/C racing away. I am 42 years old and I was running the Gold Coast electric side of racing here in Australia, I did not have a day of work in 47 days. I am a Golf Pro and every day I was not at the track I worked teaching golf. ( some would say that is not work) . I spoke with my wife about giving away racing and after starting to sell my thing's, a lot of the members at Meakin Park said why don't you just race night's here with us. The problem was most of my stuff was Pending sale on the for sale forum. After my meeting last Saturday night, one of the Members offered me a Cyclone and Here I am. I must say to you all if you live in Queensland and you get the chance to race at Meakin Park you will know why I changed my mind about giving racing away. Those guy's are one bunch of special people and every time a new face is there they make them feel very welcome.
Thats my story of how I changed to Cyclone

Hey what did you guy's race before Cyclone and what made you change ?

Geez Addam, getting all warm and fuzzy over here


Hey, when are you going to take those VERY EXPENSIVE stickers off your car? The GCMR ones I mean.

Looking forward to seeing how this beast of yours goes at Meakin. You can drive an 18 wheeler around the GC track at full speed

Hey Guy's
Do you guy's have any links to good reading, stories, advice, setups on the Cyclone. Like Tryhard has a great one for the 415 is there anything like that for the Cyclone.
Thanks
Addam

You may find this useful.
It's a building process of the Cylone with Atsushi Hara. There are some useful tips in there, but the kits have been updated so some modifications don't have to be made anymore (like dremel out the 'front belt hole' in the chassis).
It's in japanese, so I recommend you use a website translator like Worldlingo.

l am using 48p gears and is gearing for brushless 13.5. I have noticed that certain combination of gears, they do not mesh together. If I am looking for ratio of 4.9, do you think that the gears will mesh? What combination you used so the gears will mesh? Thanks.

At the moment I'm using all version 1 driveshafts, but last night I broke my TIR spool and am looking at getting the 3 piece WCE spool. I'm guessing the this needs ver 2 driveshafts for the fit to be proper? If I upgraded to ver 2 driveshafts would they still fit in the black delrin diff or would I need to go to the aluminium one? I'm guessing I would need the ver 2 one-way outdrives for me to use the one-way. Also, does the original wide one-way pulley fit on the new spool?

Anyone have any thoughts on the 3-piece spool? I've seen a few and they've all been positive, good wear rate?

I got the 3-piece spool in my cyclone which has had quite a few runs now (mod)......no signs of wear whatsoever.
