You also need the TC chassis plate to make it work since it has the holes for the ATC posts. I would think the ATC posts would be beneficial if the tarmac had quite a bit of grip and you wanted to tune out some chassis flex

Thats true, I was just trying to make it easier to explain hahaha. But now that that picture is there, everyone will have a better idea. Thanks!

Hi bro, I'm running a GTB/SS10.5 on my Cyclone S as well. Started off with 5.7 FDR and after 5min on a cool evening (28~30deg) , the motor without any heatsink was at 118F.

Do I keep gearing down till I'm at around 140~150F so I dun hit the max of 160~175F stated on the Novak manual? Can temp alone be used to find the sweet spot for gearing?

Thanks!

you can gear according to temp. at 118 you can get a little more if you're still looking for a bit more over all speed. If you can get it to around 150 after 5 min and you're happy with the over all speed then all should be fine. You do have room to work with temp wise. Good luck bro.

I wasn't at the Speedworld cup. My car was there but I wasn't. This was the worse race I have had with the car. Nothing went right all weekend but I had fun in the pits with some of the guys. Rough driving and only bringing my B game didn't pan out too well. The car is in pieces and waiting for new bearings and a couple of other pieces. Treat this race like fight club and we all new the 1st rule of fight club

And yeah you can believe that the rear shocks were all layed down, but in the weekend they (Moore and Hara) also changed to the 3rd hole counting from down. Pack at front position. But this track is so special that i think it will be dificult to make it work at any other track.
Here is my little mobile gallery: http://picasaweb.google.com/jorgesim...INALSANDERNACH
Also Paul Lemieux was there and super fast also, a big hug to Paul, very nice person and very simple person.
A fantastic weekend.
Are u sure? Did u ask him or u just looked. Why I ask is because the color dot on Hpi's spring is on top of the springs, after put on the shocks you not be able to see the color that easy, do u have Hpi's spring?

A friend of mine has a Cyclone and just purchased a Losi Xcelorin Sensored 17.5 combo. He will be running on a medium sized carpet track with foam tires. Any recommendations on gearing and what size spur and pinion to purchase that will equal that ratio?

Thanks,
Ty
