Yes you can I run on a bumpy track at 6mm ride height

Just unscrew the shock ballends about 2 turns and make sure the shocks are same length.

Default 39 tooth pulley

I bought a diff kit from Tower so that I would have a spare.
http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXNZG1&P=7

It came with the 39 tooth pulley part 61050. I noticed that the teeth themselves are much thinner than the pulleys on the car now. Are there different ones? The manual lists the pulley as part A495. Little confused here.

Also do you adjust the diff like you would an xray? When the diff is tighter the head of the screw is down too deep to adjust it that way...

Hi Guys

I used to be an Xray Man and now I just switched over to Hot Boddies
I just baught th Cylone Moore-speed edition. What a fantastic looking car

I have one problem that I am sure came up before.
The 27T pinion gear on the motor simply can not reach the spur of 100T.

I am going to run this car on an outdoor asphalt track where they race 1/10, 1/8 and 1/5 scale cars (Both Nitro and Electric)

I am running the LRP Sphere Competition TC ESC and a 3.5Turn brushless motor powered by Team Orion 4800 Platinum 2S LIPO.
I need to get to a final drive ratio of 8.9 for large track for the 3.5Turn motor

I am not sure what the maximum Spur you can have on the Cyclone.
Cyclone IDR = 2.4375 [(Spur/Pinion)* IDR = FDR]
I think a 106T spur and 30T pinion would get me that ratio but I m not sure if they will still reach or even worse fall below the chassis line

Anyone can make any recomendations from experiance?
Thanks very much

Some have run a 110T spur with no problems. The 108T will give you a little more clearance.

Anybody know where I could get a set of HOT61088 WC Ed. MIP CVDs? I can't find them IN STOCK anywhere in the US.

Thanks

I believe my LHS had some in stock, both the kits and single CVD bones. Speedworld Raceway in California (916) 783-8864 ask for Billy. They will be closed tomorrow but will be open Thursday, 12-7 I believe are there hours.

I see you can buy a special motor mount for brushless motors. Do you need to use one these when using a brushless motor (eg Novak 13.5SS), or can you just use the original motor mounts?
