Well due to a forum glitch I can't post these up forsale for the time being but I am selling the full set of 3racing ssg parts (both shock towers, both top decks and front cumper support) only had them on for a race and modified the rear plate for some extra flex. Asking $45 shipped.

Also selling the nitro rs4 rear gear diff which drops in the cyclone just have to put in pro4/tc3 axles $30 shipped for that.

Can the new 2.6 diff screw be used on the original style diffs?

Can you just drill out the old diffs to fit the new screw?

Thanks

Default Setup question series - Q#1

guys, I'll start a series of technical questions here to help all our fellow cyclone/TC users (me included) set up our favorite car properly... all I'm asking is to please post an answer only if you know what you're talking about (as the internet allows everyone to answer any question "just because one can") and not because "you think" or "you've heard". So here's... Question number one!


When would one decide to stiffen one end of the car via the rollbars rather than via stiffer springs and the other way around? What would be the consequences of one versus the other?

Hoping this will be helpful - thanks!

Paul

I doubt it, but if im not mistake people were using i think a tc3 diff screw though, after drilling the hole a little bigger

But in my opinion you are better off just saving up the cash and buying a new diff kit. You dont need the aluminium diff halves the delrin ones seem to be quite durable and besides the cost of the little plastic blades is a bit of a joke.

That particular question is going to be an opinion type answer based on driving style. I have my on theory of what should be done but someone else might see things differently. Just about every answer on this thread is based on a racers opinion of what has worked for them....then there are those racers that try to give book answers but have never even tried what they have suggested. No matter what the replies may be to this question just take them for what they're worth and try some of the suggestions you may get and see what works for you.

Yes you can but you will need the 2.6 thrust washers, balls and T-nut.

I have tried to get the 2.6mm HB diff screw to work, it doesn't work correctly. Its about 8mm longer than the old screw and you will find that because of this, you have to use alot of spacers and shims to take up the space, otherwise it binds on the end of the CVD. I was able to shim it, but you end up with the screw floating high in the outdrive and you can that the spacers washers continue to catch and grab on the screw, making the diff action not as smooth. Best advice, stick with the AE screw or just get the pro-diff.

Dizzy1 ,,, Were you using the old aluminum diff half's, delrin or plastic. ???? I will look again at the two screws in the morning just to be sure. But 8mm??? thats a big difference.
I used the Cyclone D4 2.6 screws, I used that one with no spacers/shims all last summer with the old aluminum diff half's. At first I re-taped the stock T-nut to fit the 2.6 screw, I later found the right T-nut at RCMARKET and everything worked great.
I'm using the 44mm steel axles, this summer I tried the new POM pro spec and it only works in the back, it's to long for the front. (Maybe that is something like the problem you had???)
So the aluminum pro spec works fine in the front or the back in my Cyclone but the POM only works in the back.
There are lots of people using the HB 2.6 screw in the old diff without any problems.
If you look back about 30 or 40 pages you will find the discussion on the 2.6 screw in the old diff.

STLNLST is right. i've seen some wack setups work great for one guy and be un-driveable for another.

IMO the best source for fundamentals is an xray setup book or the XXXmain chassis setup guide.
