Now we have the option parts called "Low gear unit" that allow you to use bigger spur gear for the brush less motor.

#61298 Low Gear Unit (Black)
#61329 Low Gear Unit (Purple)
#61360 Low Gear unit (Blue)

when you use these units, you will be able to have smoother drive train too,due to the less angle belt mounts. Even if you're not brush less system user, these parts are still good for you guys.

in addition, we will soon have 18T drive pulley that is 2 tooth bigger than the original one. This will make the drive train way more free!!

You can still use the original one. the brush less motor mont allow you to use lower gear ratio than the original one. (max 110T spur gear with the brush less motor mount)

Thanks,

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
I downloaded one of Andy Moore's setups and it has on there that he used a 107/29 combo to get to 8.994

When you use those pulleys, you will also need to have the belt that is particularly made for the pulleys. We HB will release them soon.

Thanks,

I noticed a pic the other day where Hara had a belt tensioner mounted on his rear belt (i think at the reedys). Maybe its something to do with that? **SHRUG**

The rear belt is usually run slightly tighter than the front using the cams.

Andy's been using the new pulleys and belts here in the UK for a while, i was impressed buy how smooth they made the drivetrain and the extra range of gearing is perfect for modified.

I have been running the tensioner in the rear for the last couple of months, i was finding that even with the belt set tight i was getting belt skip, with the tensioner there the belt can be set overall looser and still not skip, i love the idea of the bigger pullies, i have been looking at the 3 racing ones, but have been out of stock every time i tried to order.

It has a lot to do with using the same brand male and female plug. I have only ever had issues when trying to combine 2 different brands.

The LRP Silver ones are quite nice.
