hey Marco, i would really appreciate that setup, although I don't have the BMI chassis, im planning on picking up the HB 3.6mm chassis once $$ comes around. But that setup will really help.

Oh and I don't wanna rebuild my shocks again, i just did them last night with stock pistons and AE 50wt oil all around. Gold springs up front with silvers in the rear, no rebound foams in the rear.

Put some Rubbers on that Clone and Run it. Leave the foams at home.

Here's the winning stock foam set-up from the Snowbirds last year. You have to take into account that the traction level at the Snowbirds is insane!

MarcosJ - You going to the Snowbirds this year?

hey man thanks for that setup sheet!

I plan on running 4 degrees castor for our low-medium grip carpet, did that setup sheet call for 6 degrees since it was high grip?

sorry to get back to this one but as i just bought a setup station after borrowing my friend's for a while first i just figured out the following
integy version measures the inside wheel angle
hudy measures the outside wheel angle.
now to get a spare plate from the other brand and you can actually tell the ackermann function from both readouts.....

anyone have a decent asphalt/parking lot set-up for MOD?

I'm sure it might be somewhere in this thread, but 300+ pages is a little much to go thru

thanks!!

Try this, it's decent and very consistent for a 2.5 chassis setup. Sorry about the scan quality and penmanship.

Default Diff problems

I'm running a 13.5 pro with rubber tires. One way in front and diff in back.

The diff will come loose after one run. I have plastic out drives and a new titanium screw and nut. I have broke them in and tightened them in steps and they loosen or will snap the screw over time.

I can get some alum. out drives will this help?

Guys, I ordered HPIa495 39t ball diff pulley for the cyclone. I got it and it has wider pulley teeth than the HOT61050 pulley. Also the HPI pulley has larger cut outs in the diff ball section to hold the diff balls, so the diff balls can move up and down, whereas in the Hotbodies pulley they can't.

Stormer hobbies and speedtechrc.com both have the HPIA495 pulley listed as a balldiff pulley for the cyclone. If you look at your manual, it calls for HOT61050. Although both pulleys have the same bearing diamater and thickness, it looks like the HPI pulley woudl work beside the fact the pulley for the belt is wider and the diff balls may move around.

Anyone have experience with this?

I think that older cyclones use the a495 pulley. The newer ones use the hot bodies 61050 pulley.
