What about bigger pinions and the same spur?
Thats the gearing I always run..... I have went to a 86T spur, and a 47 pinion

And I have done 98, and a 54 tooth pinion

towerhobbies and stormerhobbies have TONS of cyclone parts in stock. Also if your looking for hopups or replacement parts eBay is awsome too.

There is a seller on eBay named HKShobby and DInball, they have lots of parts from 3 racing that work with the cyclone for super super super cheap.

A complete set of 4 shocks (purple anodized) for the cyclone is $20, complete. The rebuild kit is only $4.17.

Yes, i can confirm that this ratio works as it is what i use for silver can 540 racing here. If you use a 39 tooth pinion you will get very close to what you desire. I use KAWADA spur and pinion as a local hobby stocks them, but they are also available on alot of the Hong Kong websites.
Good Luck

The biggest 64 pitch pinion I have is a 52 tooth pinion which is also Kawada brand.

i just got my moore-speed and I need to knwo if the 2.5 degree pivot block up front means the car has 2.5 degrees of TOE-OUT. It makes sense and I can see the wheels pointing out. I ordered a 0 degree mount, does this make sense?

well it will give you inboard toe out , makes the car have more agressive steering.

look at the attachment

So will reducing the inboard front toe out make the steering less agressive even if the actual front toe is readjusted to say 0 degrees with both cases.
