Is there a good stock rubber carpet setup around anywhere? Med traction carpet and sorex tyres?

Thanks

Dan

Just seen some photos of the prototype car from the worlds and it looks more like an xray t2 008/9 than a cyclone.
it looks like there is new topdeck, servo saver, rear deck, layshaft mount, motor mount, layshaft assembly and front bulkhead changes, so not to much to talk about .
the photos can be found at petit rc

Which team drivers car is that with the proto pics?

There's pics of Hara and you can see that he is still running the cyclone with the normal motor mount and layshaft mounts.

Hi, i have just put 18t belts and pulleys inmy cyclone wce and the front belt is a bit tight with the spool bearing holder mark is facing the front of the car and the rear belt is a bit loose with the bearing holder mark facing downwards. Just wondering what is the best position to put these bearing holders in so you get the right amount of tension for the belts.

Depends on the condition of your belts.

The belts and pulleys are brand new- never run.

A safe place to start is to put the markings at 12 o'clock. It's a good starting point and the belts aren't too tight or too loose.

Anyone try out the adjustible chasis stiffiners for the optional rear deck etc. I am going to be running carpet rubber with my TC and have the kit yet haven't ran them yet. I know on a foam setup stiff is good but with rubber tires is everyone running a high traction asphalt setup?
