I need a setup for rubber tires on carpet, im sure its been asked 1000x.

Also would you run the 2.5 degree pivot block up front for this?

I ran an S last year and a Black Cyclone. I like the S better. I wanted to see how well the S could run. I ran the stock setup and it was very good in 19T rubber tire racing. Ran the stock dogbones well lubed. I ran diffs fr and rr. The diff half's are ok. The inner steem that the diff pulley rides on break easy. So I use the 3Racing rear ally diff half's. I did not run a spool up front due to the spool I had was a V1 and the bones are V2. the center pully does wear faster with 19t racing. So the 3Racing or stock Cyclone center pulley will work.

The stock S shocks are great. I did not have any problems with them.

Over all the S ran very well for the money. Also run the carbon C hubs and a P-Dub front bumper.

What is the best diff?
ONE WAY or
SPOOL?
For stock 27t or 13.5 Brushless.

Yeah with all the plastic parts and softer (high traction) arms the Cyclone S handles very well on asphalt. It is a little heavy though (but you cant have it all :P)

Ive also had the post on the diff halves which the pulley sits on snap a couple of times. Its probably more suited to stock and 540 racing. If you find the diff keeps undoing itself every run, then the post has probably snapped off.

Depending on driving style the diff or one-way will be better for 27T, if the track is big and open you might be able to use a spool with a 13.5

Personally though i would go with the one-way as you shouldnt be needing brakes.

The standard carpet setup here works well:

If the rear end is a little twitchy, removing the rear roll bar settles it down nicely.

Yes... I dont, but my buddy swapped from a cyclone S, to a normal cyclone, and he just drilled, and countersunk 2 holes to screw the posts down, and it works pretty good

he ran a spool on carpet? I heard never to do that? Am i wrong? Also what would happen if I switched from the 2.5 degree front pivot block to a 0 degree in the front for carpet & rubber.

When it comes to rubber on carpet, a spool works very well. Here in the UK, most people running in the modified/19 class use a spool.

OK ! Great back to set ups.
My Cyclone hooks coming out of corners on power,,,, Going in and middle corner is good, Did it with a Diff and now with a spool and a one way. I am now running.
0* front toe pivot block and have used 1* and 1.5* never more then 1.5* in front.
3* rear toe pivot block.
2mm under ball studs in front, 1.5mm back.
1.5mm under pivot blocks front and back.
4 degree caster.
long front and back links, tried short and middle, still hooked coming out.
1.4 sway bar front none in back but tried 1.2 in back and it was worse.
22lbs front 19lbs back springs.
10.5 motor.
Small technical track with 180* and 90* corners.
Rubber tires and carpet.
BMI 3mm chassis, stock upper chassis.
Man if I could get it to stop hooking coming out I would be one happy guy. Any help would be much appreciated.
