I think your gonna be fine with your stock diff's unless your having issues with snapping diff screws! But if your snapping diff screws I don't think the diff is being assembled correctly.

My trick is to tighten the diff until its pretty smooth but not super tight. Then I test it in the car! Hold the spur gear and the driver side rear tire. Spin the passenger side tire fast, it should spin and hear a slight chirp. That means they are loose but won't slip! perfect!

I will get the set up on to a set up sheet and post a link on www.gearchart.com However....I won't take credit for this set up. My boy Scotty Barnes is the guy that put this set up on my car. He use to be the Cyclone master until the student beat the teacher this weekend Love ya Scotty if you're reading this.

I used the 13mm rotor with a final drive ratio of 9.4 This was with Novak motors and spread spektrum speed control using profile #1. The cyclone also had the stock pulley so the internal drive ratio was 2.4???

I'm going to try the stock diff screw the next time out just to see how it holds up. What diff lube are you using when you build your diffs?

I use the associated diff lube and black grease only becayse my LHS has lots of it and its super cheap! I know MuchMore has their own stuff as do many other manufacturers, there all the same.

They are not all the same. Schumacher has the best lube I have used thus far so I'm planning on getting a few tomorrow when I call them up in the morning. The Schuie diff lube is thicker than the AE lube and doesn't melt off in warm weather. Give it a try one of these days.

Guys, I need help with my Cyclone, why when I setup my car and check my toe-in for the rear wheels the reading is not the same from left to right. I am using a 3.0* pivot block for the rear but the reading can be left 3.0* and right 1.5*. Isn't it suppose to bothe side reads 3.0* if my pivot block is 3.0*? Is this something that I need to worry about or can I just ignore the different reading. I have use different setup kits to check, and it also give me different readings.

check to see if anything is bent (hinge pins) and make sure your rear hubs are spaced the same left to right. Other than that I'd have to look at my car and see what other suggestion I could give you.
