I'm waiting on some parts so I haven't tried it again... but if I remember correctly I was trying to raise the blocks 1.5mm. Maybe 1mm would work...When I get the chance if it does not work I'll try some pics. Not sure my camera is good enough for a decent detailed pic but I'll try. Thanks.

NO!.. the new 18T pulleys will not fit with the old belts.

Sorry I should have clarified that a bit better, what I meant to say was that if you are using the stock pullies then the stock belt should be fine and you shouldn't have to use the new belts. If the stock belts are too tight with the stock pullies then either it's because they are new and will loosen up or there is something wrong somewhere else.

81T Spur and 22T pinion fits fine so its pretty safe to assume that should be good

hey guys.

im getting a cyclone within the next few weeks and have a couple of quick questions about it.

first, how hard are the belts to remove? i had a Spint2
(i know its different) and both belts where an absolute pain to remove. do you have to bassically pull the whole car apart to remove them on the Cyclone?


second, i was looking at getting the Special Edition Drift version only because it comes with a bit of alloy bits and the fact that my bugdet doesnt quite allow for the Hara or Moore atm what ally bits does it come with and from the looks of the pics, does it come with CVD's?

First of all change the tyres. If the tyres are not giving enough grip then any setup changes cannot compensate for it, they are the only point of contact between the car and the ground.

I have no idea which car in the video was yours. But I can still have a guess at what's wrong with the setup.

Tires: Change them! Anything from Take-off/RP/Sorex. Check with the local fast drivers to see what their using. If the track is bumpy, then use a softer insert with more airgap.

Castor: 1 deg is probably too direct for such a large high speed track. Change to 4deg. This gives you much more stability.

Camber - check your tire wear. If the outer portion of the tire is getting worn, then use more camber. I'd try around -1. No more.

Roll centers - which blocks are you using on the car? Use a SMALL or very thin spacer under the blocks. Good for low traction tracks as the car rolls more to generate grip.

Maybe try heavier weight oil to calm the car down. Esp with the above changes.

Rear Toe: Use more toe if the rear kicks out. For MOD I never run anything less than 2.5, even more regularly 3.0deg

That's just a general observation. Hope that helps you on your way.
