I apologize if this was discussed before. I have a Cyclone TC and it seems that the rear toe in is not equal on both sides. If this is not and optical illusion, does anyone know what the culpret is:

Chassis misdrilled
Rear suspension blocks mis-aligned

I have tried different rear toe blocks3.0m 2.5 and it doesn't seem to help.

Any ideas

Thanks in advance!

What's a good starting gearing point for a 5700kv motor? What should be the final drive ratio?

The current batch of rear hub carriers has been misdrilled, so the best solution so far has been to either get some aluminum rear hub carriers from 3 racing or Jet Racing, or to try to redril the hole till it gives the correct amount of rear toe in.

Future batches of the rear hub carriers have been said to be much better, so this shouldn't be a problem for too much longer hopefully.

the problem isn't your blocks......it's all in hubs. You can scroll thru these threads and see what I posted as a fix for the toe end problem.

Both cars are capable of winning .... in the right hands. So you can't go wrong with either. I have a cyclone TC which I never run yet, and I feel like a winner already...

I think so, I used my spare pro4 graphite rear hubs parts to correct the rear toe difference and it fits.. only thing is I just bought the spare recently and it came from the defective batch also.. I'll buy the aluminum rear hubs soon.
