on the camber link positions near shock tower whats the difference between the two inner holes closest to center line/longer position one make link angle toward the shock tower and the other is away or straight. more camber gain or maybe just one lets u run the link slightly longer

Hey guys, I just bought some ceramic diff balls for my Moore speed cyclone. I was wondering if anybody has any tips for building/breaking in a diff with ceramic balls.

unbelievable! stormer has 3 of the chassis and there only $79!

I like to use 3 racing titanium ball studs, no breaks! I also use ceramic nitride diff balls from wallawalla on eBay. The nitride ceramic balls are only .56 cents each and come in both 2mm and 2.4mm. Use HPI d rings and HPI thrust washers. Use the titanium HB diff screw/t-nut.

You can also find lots and lots of cheap hop ups from 3 racing on eBay from the seller HKS hobby. ALl aluminum hop ups in purple anodizing and lots of graphite parts. They even have the 18t pulleys that come with 16, 17, and 18t pulleys for just $7.50 each 3 pulley's.

I bet you don't even need the longer front belt, it will be slackless and you may not even need the tensioner. Im gonna buy the belts anyways just in case. They are the 170t front belt and 63t rear belt.

It might only be .5 mm but remember that's about 25%.

thats true man. Does anybody here run their cyclone on indoor carpet with foam tires? I need a good starting point for a 75'x45' ozite medium grip carpet with foams.
Car is a moore-speed cyclone. Car has a front ball diff.

whats the craziest gearing you've ran on your cyclone without using a brushless motor mount set?

Im thinking about a 96t spur mated to a 47t pinion gear. Will it fit? (64pitch of course)

What about bigger pinions and the same spur?
