How is the belt tension? Is it tight?

you have to use the original stock belts and not the new longer ones. the tension will be the same.

Hey guys,

This has probably been asked before somewhere but ill have a shot,

Does anybody have a setup for the Cyclone S running on foam tyres on carpet? I will be racing in stock class, and have just built this car, but need a basic setup to start me off.

Cheers,

Adam

hey guys..

I just revised the WCE editable setup sheet
to be able to change the drive ratios using the 18T pulleys.

I'll upload it on GearChart soon.

Zombies, this may sound silly but does Tamiya's 37T one way pulley also fit the cyclone spool? BTW what is the benefit of having a transmission ratio of 2.055 compared to 2.1667?

makes it easier to get a low enough FDR to make 17.5 viable.

I've played with alum cvd's up front and ver 2 universals and I'm going to stick with steel universals front and rear. I don't really care for the alum cvd's. Steel should be able to take a better pounding on the track though.

I'd like to have some for next weekends race but it doesn't look like that will happen. I will swing by Speedworld and see what Billy is getting in.

Default Cylcone TC

just about to order a TC, anybody know where i can download a manual and parts list or even a exploded view so i can order some spares with it.
Also does the TC use the same wishbones all the way round?

Cheers
Kev

TC manual: http://www.hpiracing.co.jp/contents/...b/ep/67700.pdf

And no, it has different front and rear wishbones (left and right are the same though).
