Hey guys, just got a hold of the original cyclone. Does any one know where I can get two 18 tooth lock center pulleys and the belts to accomodate the pulleys. Hot Bodies site is out of them. I know the car is old compared to the moorespeed but just I just thought i'd try and and make the car somewhat competitive. any help would be appreciated. got the car for a good deal and couldn't get a hold of the moorespeed.

who said an "original" cyclone would not be competitive against a AME or WCE version? From what I can see - there are not many MAJOR differences better each chassis that would say this is better than that...

as far as I can tell - ALL the cyclones (barring maybe the newest revision that's not even out yet) come with a 16t center pulleys...So for any version, the 18t pulleys are add-ons

Thanks,

the moorespeed in essence is just a black cyclone with different anodizing, shock towers with more holes, and some improved parts for reliability (diff screw, ...). With the same setup and the same driver, they will turn the same lap times

Someone knows what is different?

Thanks
The new bulk heads have been reinforced.
They are much stronger than the existing one.

When using bigger center pulleys to change the internal ratio, do you have to keep both center pulleys the same? For example, use two 16T or two 18T, or can you mix them up?

mixing them up will cause overdrive or underdrive.. depending on what you do. each one does something different (more steering, less steering) etc.

now dont ask me which one causes more steering and which one causes less.

..depends on track of course, but So Cal La Mirada (med sized track) I usually start with a 6.0 and go one up or down (CP brushed 19T motor)

The Cyclone TC also has a new shock body which, from the instructions looks at if it's not threaded all the way down the shock body.

Talking about shocks, does anyone know how the HPI Competition shock (75194) compare to the shocks in the Cyclone?
