111 will also fit. Minimum total teeth number must be at least 135.
e.g. 111/24, 110/25 etc.
By a relative "healthy" milling of the motor mount You can reduce number of total teeth to 133. It means a 111/22 or a 110/23

We'll race on a 24 hour endurance event this weekend. I've modified our Cyclone to be a bit more robust for this race

hi guys how long should your oneway spin for mine seems to spin for around 5 seconds and does a more free running oneway make for better lap times? cheers t.k

Yup those are indeed the xray driveshafts. But, my main concern is the number of teeth on the rear pulley...if they the same as that of the cyclone pulley.

for the 110 spur



to move the motor further back

I am new to the Cyclone, what I notice with most I should say all Cyclone is they have the sway bars on, is it a must that you run the sway bars? I am racing mostly on carpet with foam tires. The car I ran before was the RDX and I didn't have to use the sway bars, I just work with spring I guess because the car was very stiff I didn't have to use the sway bars.

The diff is basically an Xray diff. I took and older wide Cyclone pulley, and cut out the whole inside of it. Only a ring remained with the 39 teeth on it. It fits exactly on the Xray pulley (after some sanding). The two pieces are glued together with Loctite 3450 "Liquid alloy". You can see the original teeth of the Xray pulley on the parts' photo.
Xray driveshafts (and also axles and couplings) are used simply because cyclone outdrives do not fit into the Xray driveshaft slots. BTW, other dimensions of the driveshafts are exactly identical, you can use e.g. Xray axles with cyclone dogbones and xray couplings (or any other combination).
Xray axles are worth for a try: they are lighter (4g to 4.5g) and seem more durable than the original Cyclone ones. (xray axles have two different positions to secure driveshaft pins therefore they have two lives.

To be honest, I cannot tolerate purple anodized parts
I bought a black version cyclone, and bought almost all options separately just because I hate purple parts. Unfortunately the Surikarn edition is not available anymore.
