Shoot for a 3.5 FD for the 17.5 motor and a 4.0-4.5 for your 13.5 motor.
Precision racing systems sell a 76t spur and a 65t pinion , so yes its posible..

Holy crap! 3.0 with the stock pulleys and belts is possible with that 76 and 65!

though by the looks of the 76, it doesnt look like it will fit into the adapter but who knows. Regardless, with a 87 spur from Spedtech and the 65t pinion from Precision, the FDR ends up being 3.26

anyone know if this will physically fit in the Cyclone? Wondering and thinking it will is great, but whether it can actually take a pinion that big....heh...anyone?

Hi all,

Just getting back in racing again and picked up a MooreSpeed Cyclone and got a few questions.

The car has alloy Jet knuckles, c hubs and rear up rights on it, and I'm wondering what people thing of these (whether there likely to bend etc). Should I stick with these or put the standard composite parts on?

Also, can anyone recomend a spring set for the car, or failing the the springs that I'm most likely to need for tuning etc?

Cheers, and thanks for the help

Well for one your name is crashmaster...so I would stick with the aluminum

Anyways I only use aluminum c-hubs, steering knuckles, and rear hub carriers on all my cyclones. They look trick, they stay true, there super stiff, and there awsome! Keepem.

For onroad asphalt you can pretty much get around with the gold (front) and silver (rear) springs which should be the kit springs for the wce (I hope i got the colours the right way around).

I personally dont use aluminium parts but the jet racing ones should be decent if you break a lot of parts when driving. I find 3 racing aluminium to be relatively weak (but cheap).
Personally Im a pretty ordinary driver but ive barely broken anything racing a lot of 19T and 5 cell mod (although im also not a very aggressive driver).

Hmmm...

since i didnt get to set mine up before i raced it, i just looked at it and the springs on the back are the HPI blues and the fronts are HPI Pinks (the paper says they are Pro4 springs...you know).

Im starting to think that isnt too ideal of asphalt? What do you all think?

I've also tried all the hara springs and am back to running the stock gold/silver combo. Which is odd for me, as my xray FK05s were tuned for different tracks and conditions basically exclusively by spring changes. I'd make a few spring changes and the car would then be dialled. It doesn't seem to be the case with the cyclone.

XraySteve is right.... I tried 50w and the car was hard to drive. I put in AS 30w and it drives very nice with the #3 or#4 pistons. I also found the stock gold and silver springs work the best out doors with rubber. I am going to try the pink 18 and blue 15.3, I think they might be A little better. I'v not tried 1lb moves away from stock.
