The temp was 140-150 F after a min run. So 5.2 is the sweet spot? is there any timing advancement on the motor and what profile setting are you using?

At the KO race I ran the Novak 10.5 with the timing cranked all the way up. The gear ratio we used was 5.2 and the straight was 160ft. It was good enough to make the show and my motor never got over 160. On smaller tracks I usually run between 5.4 and 5.6.

I had the rdx too and that car is real nice on carpet foam but the cyclone tc is more for rubber I tried to do the foam thing with the cyclone but it can't beat the rdx even with the the bmi chassis, but on rubber carpet or ashpalt you want the cyclone, just my opinion on both cars.

I will have to look at the settings on my LRP and see what they are all set to. The standard setting should be more than enough to get you in the ball park though. I only change the drag brake and punch settings most of the time. I haven't run the Orion 4800 with a 13.5 and the LRP speedo yet. I would also take a look at the timing that you have on your motor. That might help out some too.

96 spur with a 45 pinion. My internal ratio is stock at 2.4375 (WCE car)

96/45*2.4375=5.2

WRONG!! Cyclones finished 1st, 2nd and TQ'd at the 2007 Snowbirds in the Stock Foam class.

In this case it beat many RDX's.

Those cars wasn't cyclones they were clones with HB parts and Larry could take a Radio Shack anything and win in any race, I sure didn't see Hara win any foam race with the cyclone or tc.

You're right. No wins. It would probably help if Hara ran more than one US Foam race a year!

The Cyclone is definately more durable than the RDX Phi, but I'll second the opinion that its more suited to rubber tires on asphalt or carpet. For foam tires on carpet, the RDX Phi is top of the heap, sharing top spot with the Xray 008/009 and Losi JRXS-R. Chosing amonsts those three is a matter of personal preference, what your track/LHS carries parts for, and what help you can get from the local hotshoes.

Looking for help choosing a pinion for a starting point for the new TC...for 17.5 brushless/lipo rubber carpet. Any help would be great!
