There isn't much to dremel, put the motor in and slide it back all the way and look at the can screws. My motor is mounted so the wires come out on top. No dremeling needed for the 110, just a file. If you run the 7700 with 110-25 it's going to run the coolest, I have used 110-25 & 26 & 27 It will get to hot with 27. You can get a brushless bulkhead for the Cyclone if you like. ..........Start with..... Punch at 40, timing at lowest , brake at 30, drag brake at 10 or less.
Good luck and let us know how it go's

Yes you can.. you just use 2 screws instead of 4. It's also a good idea to run the carbon plate on the spur when only using 2 screws to help prevent any chance of a wobbly spur...

Has anyone tried running the new D4 diff bolt in the Cyclone?
I would say you will need to drill out the diff centres a little to accomodate the larger bolt, however i would think the peace of mind would be worth it.

yes it will work with some drilling...but only problem I see is that the T-nut is longer..

What are peoples findings when it comes to CVD's and Universals when it comes to steering deflection or turning radius? I have been running the original Aluminum Hara bones in my Andy Moore edition car with excellent results.I change to the Steel version 2 bones today and it seemed to have developed a little chatter where the Alums had none.I haven't run the CVD's that came with the kit yet and was wondering what you thoughts are on this.

My car is really fast ,but this kind of bothers me about running the steel bones.Any hints or suggestions? Btw the car was obscenely fast in the main tonight but I changed back to the Aluminum bones.Could it be the fact that the steel bones weigh alot more in rotating mass?

If you want to make the chatter completely disappear with your Hotbodies car...come see me.

The aluminum take vibrations better than the steel bone so the chatter is not as much when running spool. The rotation of steel bones rotate better because of spinning dead metal weight(sometime makes you push). The aluminum is lighter and quicker but will ware out faster when running a spool.
Just my thought.
