I rounded my chassis edges. Took me a while even with 150 grit paper. Finished it off with some 220, then some 400. The finish itself with the CA is amazing.

I do need to get some acetone and fix up the bad job I did on the top deck though.

How do the clamp type wheel hubs work? Do I tighten them A LOT so that they don't fall off? And is excessive play here normal?

They don't have to excessively tight. The clamping action just keeps them from falling off. When you install the wheels they should seat solid against the pins. You did put all the shims in to get rid of some of the slop on the axles didn't you? My wheels have a little end play, but not a lot.

Yerr. when i built my A,M cyclone i was less than impressed with the slop in the wheel bearing and axel's in the hubs. so i changed to the ali hub fnt & back, even worse, i had to use bearing lok but be carefull not to get it in the bearings, ofcourse...... It seems that bearing in hub not tight enough fit.
I could get 2mm slop on steering L/R
any one got a fix?

I just rebuilt my front diff and tried using two bearing instead of the spacers. Made it too thick, diff rings wouldn't clamp down.

Maybe you have different version. Mine clamps down perfect.

Do you have the cyclone or the cyclone S?

Only the cyclone S has a front diff, unless you changed from the one-way to a diff on the regular cyclone.

The cyclone S diffs are different than the regular cyclone diffs.

Default I NEED HELP

I have a problem with my Cyclone and I cannot figure this out. I have been racing for 6 years now and I am experienced but this one is driving me crazy so I am going to ask help from anyone that owns the Cyclone.

I own a Cyclone WCE and I was racing one night and I broke a steering arm and a cvd.

Since that time when I hit the throttle and turn my servo to the right, when it is at full speed it is ok, but when it starts to slow down with the wheel turned to the right, it makes a binding noise.

Now I have replaced the CVD, steering block, C hub and everything else I could think of except the front belt.

I can't figure this out and it is driving me crazy. I am very meticulous about my car and my cyclone has always been extremely quiet but this makes my car loud when I turn to the right.

The noie almost sounds like it is coming from the right side of the steering column and then sometimes it sounds like it is coming from the layshaft area.

I NEED HELP

I would really like to hear any suggestions from ayone who has ran into this isue or anyone that has experience in RC and building kits.

PS Has anyone else noticed how easy it is to break the diff screw? I hve broken 3 so far and once again I am a experienced racer and I have never ran into thi problem until this car.

Thanks guys.

double check your outdrives on the front you may have bent the spool cup or if you have a one way in you may have smashed a one way bearing as for the diff scews they are crap read back though the post on this thread you will find a number of ways to stop this happening as regular i personley use a tc4 diff screw and retainer and drill the centre of the diff out to 2.5mm but its up to you what you wanna try.

I will definitely try that. It may be the outdrives but I replaced them as well and stil makes that same noise. Iam about to buy a new diff kit for front and back and also newoutdrives. I will look back on the post and take a look at some suggestions on the post.

If anyone else has ran into this issue let me know.

thanks Stuey.
