Default Driveline binding

I have a friend with a Cyclone TC, essentially new.

His driveline has a problem binding up somwhere. For about 1/2 a turn of the spur gear it is "free", then, for about 1/4 turn it is "stiff". This is of course with the pinion removed.

There is nothing visibly bent, nothing visibly rubbing, or out of alignment.

Disconnecting the front drive belt shows that the binding is somewhere in the spur to rear area. The rear diff seems "normal".

Any suggestions on how to further diagnose and solve the problem. With the resistance in his driveline, it's like he's running with a drag brake enabled all the time.

Thanks.

Try realigning the pulley on the centre shaft, it may be binding on the middle deck.

Check to make sure there a no small rocks or debry (sp) in the pulleys (center and diff pulleys).

But the stock Cyclone S dogbones don't push far enough into the spool outdrives.

Are there other parts I need to put a spool in my Cyclone S?

Thanks.

Anyone?

The small foam pieces that go into your outdrives for the stock diffs should be placed in the outdrives of your spool, thats what I did and I have not had any issues with it!
hope that helps

check the rear pulley to make sure it's centered when assembling the rear diff. if it's off, then it will create a high and low spot causing the belt to tighten and loosen with each revolution.

Actually, the pins or ears on the dogbones don't slide into the oneway outdrive past the beveled portion of the slots on the outdrive. It is as if these pins or ears are to big or the slots in the oneway outdrive are to small. Can't even get the dogbones in far enough to stand the tires straight.

For those wondering, we took the spur / middle pulley assembly apart, rebuilt it, recentered it (with great care) put it back together, and that did indeed correct the problem.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Was able to get my first race on my TC this weekend. I used the stock setup and had a hard battle to get the victory. The set up is a little on edge, how can I get more of a neutral setting on asphalt? I was using Jaco blue tire and a 5.5 brushless.

What set up were you running? You need to give some of that info so that people can suggest what to try.

You can try my REEDY race setup thats on gearchart.com. They are very easy and smooth to drive. I think it should work for the TC as they are very similar cars. As for the springs try the stock springs first since the Hara "blacks" are hard to find, or you can try HPI "blues".
