Std chassis towers and top deck.

I like this car but I need a good starting point.

There is no stock rubber carpet setups on the HB E.U. site that I can find.

Any help is appreciated.
Here's a set-up for high-bite carpet with CS-27's.

Heya Jaz406,
Havent seen much here about rubber carpet setups, what are you using upfront? Have you tried using a ball diff?

Thanks for the help.

I have raced with a one way up front for two years now. I am comfortable with them and like the acceleration I get with them.

I'll try the below setup sheet.

Thanks guys.

The arms rub against the bulkheads.... not to mention the steering turnbuckles hitting the FR pivot. Most setups I've seen that have raised the front blocks are using the 2.5 degree. That I could possibly see because it would move the arms a little away from the bulkhead. How did you get yours to work.... any modifications?

Ok I'm quoting myself maybe just to remind everyone of my situation. I have figured out part of the problem with raising the blocks. The "S" plastic blocks are prespaced so when I try and raise them the are hitting the bulkheads. I have had the 3racing FR and RF but now also have the degree blocks from 3racing as well. The tuning blocks definitely sit lower than the plastic "S" degree blocks. Now I'm wondering if the FR/RF 3 racing blocks are prespaced also because to get the arms level I need to add approx 1.25mm spacers to get the arms level (just to the degree block). Does anyone know if the HB FR/RF blocks are lower than the 3racing ones? I'm just trying to figure out these spacing issues with the blocks so I can use some of these setups properly.

If you look at the face of the cyclone s outdrives they have molding injection points on the face where the diff rings sit. Usually they sit out so you have to dig them out otherwise the diff ring doesnt sit on the outdrive properly.

Just get a hinge pin setup the pivot blocks then measure the height of the hinge pin at each block. Use a ride height gauge, i assume you have one of those?

Hi guys!

I was being offered by my friend his spare cyclone TC as I'm planning to go back to RC. I know it's a great car and i have been following this thread for about two weeks already. The only thing keeping me from buying it is it's age since it's around 2years old i fear that HB might offer a new car soon. Do you know if a replacement is in the works in the following year? Thanks

I just bought one of these as my Rubber tire car - and although it may be a couple years old, the reason I chose this car is that it shares so many parts from other HPI / HB platforms that I doubt parts will be an issue. For the price that we can pick-up Cyclones for now, they are a steal... even if their is a replacement car in the works. I am sure many of the parts on the new car will be backwards compatible.

A few people have logged in saying there should be a new car, but personally i reckon there isnt much wrong with the current one.

Everyone i have spoken to that has had a try of a cyclone says that the car has more steering than anything else they have driven.

I guess, that if there is a new version it will probably just incorporate some new option parts as opposed to being an entirely new car.

About the only thing i dont like about the car is that the diff gets dirty and needs regular maintenance, and some people have issues with the diff bolt snapping, however, there are some tips which can be followed which seem to stop this from happening.
