I have a stock cyclone-s. What upgrades do I need to handle a mamba or LRP BL setup?

You should probably ask the guys on the Cyclone S thread...

You will shred them if using anything more than stock motors.

You need to upgrade to a regular black chassis Cyclone, Hara, or Mandy Moore Edition. I think by the time you upgrade what you have, my as well got with what works best.

You should be able to run stock BL with no problem, with minimal upgrades.

I can't see where you even asked your upgrade question on the "S" thread.

For those that PM'd me...

2.0 transmission: 36/18
the belts are very very loose at the moment... looking for front/rear belts that are 1 tooth less than stock.
for now this is what I'm using:
(2) sets of 3Racing red belt tension cams
(2) sets of 3Racing 18T pulleys
(1) rear belt tensioner
(2) Pro3 36T diff pulleys... one of them you'll need to ream out to fit the one-way or spool.
able to get to a 4.6fdr using a 106/46 5cell for 10.5bl.

2.1666 transmission: 39/18
(1) Yok BD rear belt 189mm 63T
(1) Mi3 front belt 510mm 171T
(2) sets of 3Racing red belt tension cams
(2) sets of 3Racing 18T pulleys
the yok rear belt is a perfect fit.. waiting on the Mi3 belt to arrive. and I'll confirm fit. with the stock front belt..it's way way too Tight!! don't try it!

if you do order the 18T 3racing pulleys..make sure you also order some replacement pulleys... they are made for the TAO5..but fit the cyclone mounts and come 2ea.. 16/17/18T

pics of the 18T pulley installed and 3Racing 5cell chassis.
Ramon,

How are those 3Racing pulleys, are they any good? What about other 3Racing parts, they have some interesting parts I want to try out.

the pulleys are nice.. comes with interchangable 16, 17, 18T.
you'll need different belts if you want to do the 17 and 18T.
haven't had a full run on the yet.. tommorrow I'll try them out and check for durability.
I have the 5cell chassis to tryout as well.
3racing has some nice stuff.. but I don't know what aluminum they are using. I'd be cautious about getting the suspension parts. I've had some Square parts that is suppose to be better than others.. and break on me.

Interesting stuff, one more question. Would Tamiya 501X diff pulley be a better option since they are readily available. It is 37T, so combine that with a 18T maybe the stock belt would fit?

That should fit. 2 tooth smaller from 39 to 37.
I had to get a 2 tooth larger belt to use the 39T pulleys.

let me know the part # for those 501x pulleys..
the only problems I see is that Tamiya uses 3mm diff balls and HB is 2.4mm.
but it should fit by removing all the bearing shims.
