However if you use the v2 or v3 spool you will need to use v2 universals. The black cyclones will have the original universals and not the v2.

Pretty much use spool if you are running anything higher than 27T stock brushless stock 13.5 i think spool may be ok.

For springs you should start with the setup which andy used at the World Championships. Look on the hot bodies europe site for the article about andy's win there. It should be gold silver springs (if im not mistaken the black comes with silver springs all round?).

Thank you.

Chris

you need some new scissors. the wing on your car looks like it was cut by some very dull scissors.

Keep in mind they shouldn't be tight up to the bulkheads, a tiny amount of play is best.
Really Stew? I have my pulleys pressed against the bulkheads because there was too much slop! It has very little to no play but its fast! The directions should have been more clear about that!

Yes, if it's too tight it will restrict the drivetrain, the amount of side-to-side play you need is really tiny though, just a tick.
When I set the pulleys I usually do it without a pinion on my motor so I can spin the transmission and feel for any binding or unusual noises as more often than not they are caused by the pulleys being too tight.

Where can we find these parts?

You can find them at RC MARKET... They are under the Cyclone D4... You should be able to get them anyplace that sells the D4 and parts for it.

I have just bought my sons two cyclone S's and I want them to run stock
27T motors. The kit uses 64P gears. What pinion size should I start with. They will be running on a fairly tight carpet track. Thank You.

I gear my motors according to temperature. I aim for at least 140F and a max of 170F. Others may do it differently!

It depends on what stock motor it is. Also carpet you usually gear lower as the high traction puts more load on the motor.

If i recall correctly monster stock was about 24 mm and co27 about 26mm
on ashphalt. So start with 2mm lower than that.

But you are better off walking around the pits and asking people what gearing they are using.
