Anyone have a used Cyclone they would be willing to sell. I am wanting to put one together for rubber tire carpet and asphalt racing.

Thanks,

To use an Associated diff screw what part do I need beside the diff screw and T-nut?

How about thrust ball and washer? Can the original one fit associated diff screw?

Beside the part(s) do I need to drill the outdrive to accommodate the 2.5mm associated diff screw since the original screw is (was) 2mm.

I snapped the Moore speed diff screw’s button head right off during break in the diff on the bench. So, I never even had a chance to run the car

My car was pushing bad on corner exit with a front ball diff. I run rubber tire on low grip carpet. Well I swapped the ball diff out for a front one-way and WOW the car is awsome! It has soo much off-power steering! nice!

WOW is all I can say about this car. I was dialed from the very first battery pack. The car was easy to drive and looked to stay preet flat through the high speed section of the track. I'm running the 16tooth pulley and stock belts to stay with the stock internal ratio of 2.4 What's the ratio if I go to the 18 tooth pulley and longer belts??? Is it like 2.1 or something around there? I turned more than a few heads today after the runs I had. Missed tq after making som mistakes in the last lap and a half. I have a few things I'd like to try the next time out and the next time I will have my boy Scotty to help with the testing.

Bring on the fun!!!!!

well i think your gonna lose the convenience of being able to tighten/loosen your diffs on the fly by using a AE screw? You also might not have as "smooth" a bolt as the super smooth worlds Titanium coated one. But then again I always buy into the shiny gimmick stuff

Thanks Iceman. Hope to find AE screw and T-nut at my local hobby shop.

Kind of suck, broke the diff screw be fore the car even hit the asphalt. I have never broken a diff screw before and I have built many diff in 14 years of RC car. I have seen people snapped Yokomo diff screw before, it snapped right where the screw and thread meets due to lack of tensile strength.

I probably go for AE screw. Loosing ability to adjust the diff on the fly doesn’t bother me, diff screw snapped while breaking in on the bench before the diff had the chance to stop slipping – that’s bothered me a lot.

I wish I could use an Xray diff in my Cyclone, that is one thing I miss about Xray parts and designs. With Xray diff I set it once and by the time I had to re built Xray diff I have already forgotten when I was re building it the last time.

Ouch that sucks

BTW do you guys coat the shaft of the diff screw with black grease? Especially at the bottom where the thrust bearings are. I always do that...

Sure did. Almost had him by a full lap. The can is awesome. I just hope it handles the same or better at Speedworld. The traction at Marin was a little on the low side compared to the other tracks in Norcal but it did sprinkle Saturday right after Jesse sprayed. He did spray again Sunday morning though.
