I think that the price 429.99 would be HongKong price..

I have no idea how much the entry price should be at, but you won't be disappointed with the price for the TC.

I hope someone, can give me a clue to solve the problem. Nobody at the club race have seen that before.
Thanks in advance.
I dont think ive ever seen a rear belt flip, it might be that you may have to purchase a new belt and try that. **SHRUG**

i use that exact setup and find it fine, however, he does run 5cell so if you run 6 cell thats probbly why, try changing your shock positions, maybe up a hole at the front.

also, where do you get an editable setup sheet?

Questions??

Hi guys,
I am getting out of the hobby and have all my cyclone stuff cleaned up, I'm just waiting on a new belt and rear gear. Any idea of what it would go for. I have a Dx2.0 radio receiver and servo, novak Gts, and Trinity RC2117 P2k pro. Pro 4 body(new), About 6 different gears and spurs, vision peak ultra charger, and Dis-1000 active battery discharger. Various purple parts upgraded throughout the chassis, and lots and lots of extra parts. Any ideas of where to start. Also pm me if interested, I am going to the for sale forum when the other parts get here.
Justin

Oops!!! Made a mistake on the rear hub spacers there, should be 2mm front/0.75mm rear, not the other way round!

That sheet must be almost a year old.....not that we run much different now, try 5th hole out on rear towers.

HOTBODIES DIFF UPDATE: Well.....today was my 4th raceday on the new diff and it was butter smooth up until the main event today. The high heat might have been too much for it to handle on it's marathon run I was putting it through. The car will be torn down and Reedy race ready for Thursday's practice. I also may try switching from the stock pulley and try the 18tooth along with the newer belts. I just hope that I can still reach the FDR that I like running my mod motors at. If not.....I'll have to rock the 16tooth for mod racing. It was mercury hot today with track temps of 158 and 106 outside temp. My car and I are now the same color after today The Reedy race should be interesting and I'm curious to see what Hara will be running set up wise.
