Cherry, just an update. Unless I miss read your post, the Sakura 46mm drive shafts are not a direct fit. The pins are too narrow and the bone ends are smaller in diameter. Guess I will keep them around just in case others might need them at our tracks.

Not sure which forum to ask this , but does anyone know a good place to order a large assortment of metric hex screws ? I ordered from "Fast Eddie" years ago but they don't seem to carry screws anymore... sizes that would mostly fit a Cyclone TC... pretty generic... Thanks for any help on this

Sakura are 46mm parts......... haven't tried to fit them coz the kit ones were chocolate, but the hardened ones are still 46mm and are very good

Thumbs up

Hi peeps, Ive been reading some post from earlier on this thread regarding gear diffs in our Cyclone TC cars...

Have anybody been successful as far as what parts/configurations work?
Reason im asking... i am looking at getting a gear diff to try out but unsure what to buy! I dont want to end up spending more than what i should... just want to buy parts once since i would have to order them.

Part number(s) would be ever so helpful if you can provide these for a complete swap over to a gear diff... thanks

Hi,

I was just checking Hara's RROC setup from 25 May 2008 and noticed that the rear hub spacers are F=1.0 and R=0.7. Is this a typo ??

Normally, 2.0 & 0.5, 2.0 & 0.7, or 2.0 and 1.0 (depending on slop).
Maybe Hara was using a different hub ??

Cheers

But they are not a direct fit, as I stated before.

Friends, may I please pass a basic setup for a track with medium grip and slightly irregular?

My car is a CYCLONE S with all the ups possible.

Thx.

I would go with the "famed" 1.5mm setup.

1.5mm spacers on all inner camber links in their longest positions.
1.5mm spacer under all roll center blocks.

gold springs in front w/ 40wt oil
silver springs in rear w/ 40wt oil
shocks in middle holes rear
shocks in outer lower holes and middle holes in upper position.
Droop 3mm front and rear
5mm ride height.

It will have a good neutral feeling, If it pushes and will not turn lower the roll center spacers to 1mm and test again.

Good luck!

HI,

Can any one tell me if the Pro4/Cyclone wishbones have the same geometry as the TC ones?

And what's likely to happen if I change to the TC arms in terms of handling?

cheers,

cheers,
hpi 67717 cyclone tc and tcx arms

5 lower shock mounting positions rear -flipable arms
4 lower shock mounting positions front- flipable arms

hpi 73506 cyclone/ cyclone tc. cyclone s arms

2 lower shock mounting locations front-non flipable
3 lower shock mounting positions rear- non flipable

this is just from observation through pictures on A-main hobbies website.

The newer arms give you more choices of lower dampening rates since the holes are offset from one side to another.

I actually use the Pro 4 high traction arms which are the same as the cyclone s I think.. they dont have the mounting points of the newer ones but I nearly use the same holes all the time anyway. They are also stronger in my opinion especially the graphit ones.. I used the break the TC ones all the time.. Also the h/traction arms seem to flex a little which helps with traction..

Cheers

cheers for the info, for some reason I thought the older arms had a bit of sweep- so shortened the wheel base.
