Hi , i used 108/35 with a 5.5 motor with the 16 t pulley
And with the 18 puley it will be differente cause the internal ration will be 2.1 instead of 2.4375 wich means that you will need a smaller pinion if you use the 18 puley.

Its really difficult to believe anything regarding rumours on new cars. Look at the T2 008. A couple of weeks back, reputable sources were posting that there will not be any new cars for 2009. Just minor enhancements. Now?

Best regards
The only thing we have seen thus far is hara testing a new front top deck with different mounting and a different back front hingpin holder which I think was tamiya. Other than that nothing has been confirmed.

Strange, look likes the soccer teams, the winning squad never should be changed.
I hope the new car(if really happening) will care more for Lipos user.

You've got about 23mm height to work with. The low point above the battery is the right rear mount for the upper deck, which some people file/dremel if necessary for some of the bigger batteries... you can get another 1 or 1.5mm height if you do that.

The SMC 28c/4000 is 20.5mm, and their 5000 is 24.5mm which is too big.
SMC 28C 4000/5000 Hardcase Lipo part 2

Keep in mind that a LiPo is more efficient than a NiMH. Apparently, you're supposed to get a runtime of a 4600 NiMH with a 3200 LiPo... so capacity is not a big deal.

The other "must do" with LiPo on any chassis that doesn't have it along the center-line is to compensate for the weight difference (a 4000 LiPo is about 220g lighter than a 4600 NiMH), otherwise the battery side of the car is too light and the car isn't balanced. Everyone competitive at our track runs a battery plate under their lipo for that reason. Here are the two popular ones:
http://www.ppdbillet.com/RC_accessories.html
http://www.manutech.info/rcracinghom...gproducts.html

They fit the Cyclone fine after you dremel a small notch for the antenna mount.

A friend needs springs for his Cyclone for carpet foam 17.5. We can't find any suitable springs, any spring sets available or other company's springs fit the shocks?

xray springs work, associated springs work, all the hpi springs work.

I use a mixture of the hara pro4 spring set and the xray 008 spring set. For carpet i prefer the xray's over the pro4 since they are smoother in the higher grip carpet.

Corally springs work great too. Get the black set and the silver set and you'll be covered for any possible need.

my take on lipo plates is, if there's no lower weight limit at your track, run the car without adding more metal to it... yes it will be off balance a bit, but then the 150g you save more than make it up in terms of acceleration and nimbleness. You just have to keep in mind that the car is somewhat assymetric when you drive it.
