Nice! I wish I could come out tomorrow!

Good luck bro

Does anyone know if the SMC 4000 and 5000 will fit in the Cyclone?

Thanks,

Thanks,
The 4K fits not mods

The 5K is to tall, but I know the guys are just shaving the bulk a few mm's

Car was killer today in practice then the track heated up and I couldn't get a hold on the set up. I'm going back out to practice tomorrow so we will see if I can correct some of the pushing problems I had with the car. Pretty much everyone in mod (other than MO) had the same issues.

Hi,
I am sure there's a bunch of gear ratio charts floating around ... and here's mine!
It's tailored for the Cyclone for rubber tyres, and can be configured easily for different spur/pinion ranges and internal ratios.

Your chart is quite perfect... But it does not show the authorized range for Brushless... I use Vortex 6.5 and 5.5 so I tune the simple cross-chart with the available ratios for each motor... If somebody is interessed, just tell me and I would post it...

Default Cyclone S with 13.5 ?

I've been running my Cyclone S bone stock with a 27 turn motor for a while now and love it... I was thinking of putting a brushless 13.5 with Lipo into it ... I had someone at the track tell me that the power of the motor will eventually tear apart the chassis... Is this true ? Or should I be OK ? What would be the weakest part of the car that I could maybe upgrade ? Thanks for any advice...

the insane power from the 13.5 will literally shred the chassis as if you put it in the grabage disposal

You might want to post this in the Cyclone S page. That being said the chassis will be fine, but I would beef up the drive train. If you have any plastic gears other than the spur replace them with the regular cyclone parts.

Found a little problem with my radio that may be adding to some of the troubles I had this weekend. I still feel that I'm slightly off set up wise but we have one more club race before the Reedy so I will gear up for that and hope for the best. I also have a loaner radio so I won't have any excuses.

Im guessing you are off Scotty's set up? If so, have you posted it? Curious what you changed

Scotty isn't even running that set up anymore. You have to drastically change your set up for the spec tire. They key is not over heating the insert. After this race I'm sure we'll be going back to the usual stuff.

I am looking at a setup that calls for 1.1mm #3 pistens. First of all does any one have any idea what the part number is and if they are a HB number or an HP number? Also is a #3 pisten already have a 1.1mm hole or are these drilled.

Thanks for any help.
