I'm assuming this is with foams....I've used as much as 3-3.5 negative on the camber to keep the tires square.

I was thinking the same but with all that camber what do you think will happen to the handling of the car? I am using the BMI chassis I am thinking if that has anything to do with the issue at hand because before I went to the BMI chassis I didn't have that problem.

Hi Guys
I ran the Clone for the 1st time at the weekend in the KO in the UK. What a car, it goes exactly where you want it to go. I made 7th in the A, and came 8th overall 'AWSOME CAR'. Thanks to Stew Knoble, Elliott Harper and Paul Upton for the setup.
Cheers Malc TCCFM

No it doesn't hinder the performance at all. In fact the tires coning hinders the car much more.


Uusally you get that type of wear beacuse there is some play in the bearings (Normal). When you set the car up statically the camber is 2 or 2.5...but when the car is running and the play in the bearings comes into play you can have as little as maybe 1-1.5 neg camber.

mine cone slighthy at 2.5 camber but our track is super tight and the rear is sliding around most of the corners I just retrue the tires after every 2 runs to keep them square

I thind it matters more on the track surface and layout more that anything else. because when i ran on a bigger track there was more coning but there was alot of high speed sweepers putting alot of side load on the tires and makin them roll over and compress

I thought you drove a Losi Type R or an Mi3 a few months back? Why the change to the Cyclone?

Hi 2-bad
Yea a mahusive difference in every way shape and form. The Losi Type 'R' is NOT a bad car, it just works more on foams on tarmac than it does with rubber in my eyes, but the Clone has everything I want, steering, mid corner, and out of a corner speed if my Q2 hadn't gone off (I should have reset it on the day) as they tend to wander off its settings, I reckon I could have gone around 5-6 seconds quicker. Very very happy with the new car.
Cheers Malc

Hi
To honest I didn't even look at the kit setup, and used the what Stew Noble's set-up and it was awsome, but I do know that they changed the set-up over the weekend and the car look real good. The only thing I changed on the car was the rear upper deck from the purple ali part to the carbon fibre part which made the car feel more consistant and planted on the rear deck when I pushed the car harder. I am waiting on the set-up the Clone camp ended up on, bearing in mind they run brushless 5 cell mod as I run 19t brushed

That was with my mi2ec and think i need a bit of an upgrade and i always liked my freinds cyclone so i have got one to try and im just setting it up as the worlds kit basic setup but it would be nice if i could have a look at yours also to see any differences.
