Both pulleys on the layshaft should have the same number of teeth.

Default 16t front pulley 18t rear pulley ?

Thanks for the imput guys, I know what your saying ref having different sized pulleys on the lay shaft. Has any one tried this with the cyclone ? and what was the result. Also im sure I read on the hotbodies website that if you run just the 18t pulley to the rear it gives increased traction, so im guessing that they have tried it. Last question is if I run the 16t /18t pulley on the lay shaft
what will my internal ratio be so i can gear my motors, I know its 2.166 to the rear but is that the ratio i use to gear my motors.
Thanks every one keep the info comming

Rapid Racer,
I strongly reccommend you use a 1 way diff in the front and a spool in the back. You could also try square wheels and then I might out qualify you 2moro.
Seriously though I'm sure there will be a few people waiting to see how you find overdrive to the rear especially on carpet , I'll let you know how it looks after the qualifiers 2moro
