Has anyone had problems with the inside of the front belt touching the bottom of the servo horn on the TC?

I had that issue before! Try to shim the center pulley and what I also did is move the spacer on the belt tensioner ( top deck ) inside, close to the tension post and put that two flange bearing together and look again! Make sure it won't over too much on the other side!

http://www.hobbypeople.net/gallery/440702.asp

metal gears, ball bearings, .10/4.8v and .08/6.0v speeds for that price? zomg! I think its worth a shot...cant really disappoint at $30 though right? (of course id just buy one to start with and test it out to see if i liked it)

I currently have a JR 590m servo in my cyclone and i race 6cell/7.4 lipo on asphalt parking lot tracks (my 2wd buggy has a hitec 645mg servo in it as well). Anyways, the torque ratings between the two servos are nearly identical (the 590 and the cirrus i mean). Would you say this is a good buy for the money or should i look for something with more torque? The JR servo i have has served me well...i can usually place top 5 in sportsman at my local races and damn is the competition stiff! Lemme know...i kinda wanna give this a try but i dont want to throw my money away buying it.
Try looking at the Futaba 3305.You might like it.About 30-35.00.M

Yeah ive found that before, i dont think it was rubbing but i was worried about it, so I trimmed the corner off the bottom of the servo horn.

Hi , i have discussed this alot with Korey and he told me to go to 1mm shim under front toe block and keep 1.5 under rear toe block , and it gave me more steering .Id recomend you to try this.

Also if its a low grip try to run 2mm under front camber link and 1mm under rear camber link , try to have 1mm difference between front and rear.It helped alot because i hade my rear end a litle loose but know its fixed.

try and put the 1.5 front toe block it would help abit with steering in the midle and exit.

Most important is are you running the pink spring.I used to have gold in front but know i have pink and MY GOD alot more steering.

So i would first try 1mm under front toe block , then change to pink spring and then move to 1.5 toe block and finally try 1mm difference between front and rear camber links.
Hope that helps

What are the chances these fit on the cyclone? Anyone got any measurements?
Copy of Losi's front LVD design. Didn't Losi patent that idea? Hmmm...

So, of the setups posted on http://www.petitrc.com/view_news.php?id=4553
should I start with the Phil Chambers Starting Carpet setup, or the Moore Standard Carpet setup. Going to be running 13.5 Rubber TC, using Speedrex 28s, on a high grip carpet track. Also, going to be using a front one-way, not a spool.

You can't patent an idea, you can only patent the product itself, so any small change, no matter how small, it then doesn't interfere with the patent
