I like the fact the car is very durable, parts are super cheap and easy to find and its by far the coolest looking TC on the market so far.

Does anyone have a setup for the Cyclone from an American race. IIC or the Birds maybe. I am looking for both foam and rubber setup. All I can find is setups from accross the pond.

The 3x1.1mm pistons are very important outdoors, the part number for the machined type is #HP73524, although I'm not sure where they can be found in the US....I'm quite sure the pistons on the teflon set from the Pro 4 are not 1.1mm, although as the holes are smaller they should be easily drilled out to 1.1mm.

I finally got done putting my Moorespeed together. Didnít go for AE diff screw, not sure what I did wrong. I couldnít make the diff to stay tight, AE diff screw kept backing out from the T-nut even during the diff break in period.

Fortunately my LHS has a few bags of an old Pro 4 diff screw so I empty her shelf. Iím pretty sure I will snap more of them screws. The diff is still slipping while I was holding the spur and one wheel I was able to spin the other wheel with moderate force. I guess I will tighten the diff screw when I have a chance to run the car on the actual track this weekend.

I was trying to find Haraís guide but I think it no longer available on the net. Anyone know if there is another copy on the net?

Sometimes the diff slipping is due to the lubes used, what did you use?

Thanks for the link

I'm using Associated stealth differential lube and HPI graphite grease for the thrust balls. Cyclone diff is really giving me the fist!!

I never had such a hard time building diff as this Cyclone, just can't get it right or at least close to the way I wanted.

Those lubes are perfect, personally I use AE black for the thrust but only because the HPI stuf is a little difficult to apply, but its performance is great.

Copy the Hara guide when building your diff, with the exception of when building the diff Hara puts a small purple shim under the t-nut, this is only needed with the older delrin outdrives, not with the WCE alu type.

I think because your diff is new that it will need running in and tightening accordingly which is why it still slips.
