ok now im confused...

i thought spools were better off-power and one-ways were better on-power? I race on asphalt so maybe things are different for us...

but from my experience, i have to slow down or let go of the throttle when i turn because if i stay on it, i push a little and i run a spool...

To me, what you described of the spool would mean that it is better on-power. **SHRUG**

Im talking from rubber asphalt perspective, ive never run rubber on carpet. Barely run on carpet, and even then only standard industrial carpet tiles.

This is totally the best advice. Mangoman and I race together with the same cars and motors, and I love a one-way and he won't be seen dead without a spool in the car. Personal preference and driving style are all important in this debate. I just can't dial out the off-power understeer that a spool creates with my 3.5, so tomorrow I'm trying a one-way. With the 19t I have always stuck with a one-way, and the car corners like it's on rails. (This is asphalt/rubber).

Default Mamba Max 7700

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has run a MM 7700 in their Cyclone?

I have just bought 1 for my Moorespeed and need to find out what gears I should run in it. I run 64p.

If anyone has run 1 or if no one knows maybe some of you guy's run a LRP Brushless systems setup could you post what gears you use? or give me some ideas.


I'd appreciate the help

Thanks all
Happy racing

Hpi

I run the 7700 in my Cyclone on a big track, I use 110 X 26 with rubber tires and my motor temp is 200* on hot days. The 110 spur will stick out just a little under the car but has not been a problem. 108 will be flush with the bottom of the chassis. I'm going to try the brushless motor mount this year with 115 spur.
Good luck and keep your diff's tight, it's better to break the screw then to melt the diff pulleys
I had to dremel the motor mount so the motor screw's(the 3 on the motor)will not hit. If you do not do that you cant move the motor back far enough for the 26 pinion to fit right.
I hope that helps you

Lazer Guy,

Thanks m8

for you guys running LI-PO, what do you do about the weight issue? Just adjust for tweak using the spring pre-load collars?

Ok right now Im using custom made maxamp packs with lead weight sglued to the bottom for a stealth look. Its like a metal chassis plate that nobody can see and it makes the pack weigh 14oz. I just don't like how the carbon sticker i wrapped it in is started to peel back and look ghetto. Thats why I wanted a nice, hard cased, professional carbon lipo pack. But the retards that make them don't put weight in them.
