I thought it works the other way. The lower FDR like 5 gives more top speed. and something like 8 would rip the wheels loose but lower your top speed.

Has anyone had any problems with the center one-way?

Yesterday after running a couple of packs through the car, mine was slipping. I figured that maybe it just needed to be cleaned and re-lubed. I tried to clean it using some alcohol and found that the bearings were falling out and the caging around the bearings was falling apart.

I thought this was kind of odd for it really not being that old, maybe 30 packs run through the car.

This could get expensive at $34 a pop. Has anyone tried a solid center pulley, if so what parts did you use? Would you just use the same pulley that they use for the rear?

Use center direct shaft part #70743 and pulley #70725. It is the same pulley as the rear.

Thanks, that's what I thought.

Do you use the center one-way if you use a front spool?

most of the situation, people run locked in center when the front is spool. but of-course the center one way is another option.

Isn't using a spool with a one-way center defeating the purpose of the spool? You still can't brake without spinning out most of the time

Dorick,

From what i've found, if running a front One-way and the car just needs that little bit extra grip in the rear end, using a spool in the front and a center-one way can help give a little more rear grip.

It settles the car down a little.

Hope that helps,

Cheers,

Robbie

Hi all.. my version 1 dog bone gave way today.. one of them was slightly bent at the end of my run.. oddly enough there was no impact at all. Anyways i called my hobby shops and most of them seem to be out of stock on the dog bones.. most of them only stock tamiya parts, would a trf cvd work on the cyclone? if not how damaging is it to run a bent dog bone on my cyclone? i'm running it with a 5.5r novak. its only very slightly bent, would it hold up for a few more runs? thanks!
