The Orion/Peak 3200 fits just fine, no mods required. Haven't tried any of the others.

Default foam carpet help

Hi Guys I've been running the cyclone for a year now and have really struggled with a set up. I've tried a few and have made my own changes with no success. I got the Cyclone initially as I thought I'd gotten the best out my old faithful TC3 but since getting the Cyclone i think I've lost nearly 1/2 a second a lap!

I had the original chassis to begin with but moved to the BMI one a few months ago.

No matter what I do the car either just doesn't turn in or it just seems to almost stop mid corner (no traction compound as it's not allowed at my club). At least with this set up I seem to have Ok mid corner steering and it's easy to drive.

here's my set up:
Front:
- camber 2
- castor 6
- ride height 5
- droop 7
- toe angle 1
- toe block 2.5
- 2.5mm under camber link -
- inside cmber position 4
- no roll bars
- position 2 on shock tower
- 25lb spring (associated)
- 50wt oil
- 2 hole 1.1mm piston
- diff
- no roll bars all round
- GRP 42 Shore 59mm

rear:
- camber 1.5
- ride height 5.5
- droop 5
- toe block 1
- 2mm under camber lonk
- position 4 on shock tower
- 35lb spring (associated)
- 40wt oil
- GRp 37 Shore (59mm)

ackerman 3
Mazda Speed 6 shell

I've done everything I can to get more steering and the set up looks a bit extreme now. I hope someone can help as I've tried a few set ups including one's from Hara, Andy Moore and Marcos' without success.

Cheers,
Jason

Are you runing on carpet or ashphelt? foams or rubbers?

It sounds like there must be something on the car that is jamming or mechanicly not functioning properly or not full steering throw etc..., It has to be something,

Try being nice to a real fast guy at your club and ask him to check over your car when he has time, this might help as there has to be something wrong with something, because this car has won the world championship in 2006!!!!!

Thanks for the tip Losi123,

It's foams on carpet.

I know it's won everything and I'm completely stumped myself! It's running free, servo's free and has good speed, torque, centre's perfectly everytime (KO 2314), drivetrain's smooth, nothing's broken or bent, it's not tweaked, turns equal left/right, balanced left/right, front/back.

JL,

first thing i noticed in your setup was the front caster at 6deg will reduce the steering response. perhaps try going back to the 4deg (standard) or go one further to the 2deg blocks.

6 deg is basically standard on every car. I would look eleswhere for changes as the 6 deg blocks benefit the car throughout the entire corner.


Also, I notice on your setup your running a mazda body and tires that you wouldent find on a setup sheet. When copying a setup it is very critical to copy the entire thing, something such as the wrong body can really throw it for a loop. There are alot of great setups for the cyclone and I am sure that when followed to a T there is one out there that will work for you. Often times without alot of setup knowledge people go chasing and get themselves so far out of tune there is no way there going to be fast. At that point the best thing you can do is start over with a proven setup.

If it was me I would look for something that larry f or jason s ran at the IIC 2 years ago and go from there. Also macro's probally has a solid starting point for you laying around somewhere.
