Hello everyone,

I was hoping someone could assist me with fixing a problem I am having with my Cyclone WCE. This question may have been posted on this board but to save time here goes. My rear diff seems to be tightening up on its own so is there a way or a part to prevent this from happening? I don't want to give up on this car because I see a lot of potential in the car. Thanks in advance.

They do that when the diff is broken in, set it with some slip when you build it then put it in the car and either run it or run the motor and hold one wheel at a time to seat everything in. It will get to a point when it will stop tightening up.

Thanks, I have to take apart the rear end this weekend and clean the bearings, diff, etc. so I will see if that works. I am pretty sure that is what is happening or at least I hope it is because of how the car handles is so strange I think.

If the rear diff is too tight will the rear of the car swing out when you first accelerate out of a corner while turning? I can't seem to get on the throttle if my wheels are turned even 1% or the car fishtails so bad I go into the wall. I race rubber tire, asphalt, 19T, Brushless if this information helps.

Has anyone used TC5 dogbone in the cyclone with a spool? I was thinking of trying some.

I find this happens when my rear diff loosens too much and the spool seems to be driving it too much at that point. You can also try to add droop to the front to allow more weight transfer to the rear while on-power out the corner. Hope this helps.

Cyclone parts are hard to find here in the states, just wonder if they might make a good substitute.

I guess that could be a possibilty as well. I get more and more confused when adding droop in that I don't know if adding means going from 5-6 in the front or if adding means going from 5-4. Also is the rear diff gear supposed to be able to move side to side a lot?
