OH YEAH Cyclone dominated the track today I got 4 for 4...TQ and 1st. Now my car is not just the prettiest it's the fastest two. Steve you are going to have to get a Cyclone if you want to go any faster, that xray is just to slow.

well i have had the new diff in my car and it looks very good once again.
It took three practice runs, after that two qualifiers and two a-mains in the clubrace last weekend. the track was a bit muddy from the rain. it was dry but the rain usually washes some dirt on the track. so i was expecting to have the diff needing to be replaced quick. after every run i have checked it and it was okay so i continued.
so now it took 7runs and it still feels good. now it feels like the old diff after a rebuild so still fine for a few more runs

Default Help with BL fitting

Hi guys

I'm sure it's been discussed to death already but I'm a bit too tight on time to search thru 11000+ posts... so here's my question, thanks in advance

What is the shortest-geared spur/pinion combo that one can fit in the Cyclone with a Brushless (ie with a "flat" cage on the motor mount side, where you can really push the motor as far to the back as possible)? I've just picked up a 4.5 BL combo, which I'll run with Lipos (yeeeehaaaaw) and I'm trying to figure out if I can avoid purchasing the BL motor mount... thanks for the help!

Regards,
Paul

I ran 110-26 in my Cyclone all last summer, the 110 will stick out under the chassis but was not a problem, 108 is flush with the chassis. You will have to grind some off the rear top plate that holds the lay shaft down, also not a problem.
I hope that helps you.

Hello - thank you for your answer as I will run asphalt I cannot take the risk to go more bullish than flush with the chassis - hence 108/27 I guess - which gives me exactly 4, times 2.43 with the std belts/pullies, so we're talking 9.72 overall GR. Ok... seems to be in the acceptable range for a 4.5

To make things slightly more complex, I run 48P only for convenience and reliability reasons. 108 in 64 means 81 in 48, however the "height" of the teeth are also different hence 78 is the largest spur one can go without it sticking below the chassis. 27 pinion in 64 is a 20 in 48, hence that means overall 81/20 - ie 4.08, which again brings us to 9.84. Sounds ok again.

I might avoid buying that BL motor mount in the end, which would be nice May I ask if the BL you were running had that "bead" on the cage which would mirror the bearing holder on a brushed motor? I'm afraid the motor I'm after (LPR X11) has that bead indeed and hence does not allow me to push the motor all the way back... thanks!

Paul

You should be able to run a 81 no problem. That is what I run, 81/32 for a 10.5.

I run the Mamba Max 7700 and it is flat, sorry I cant say if your LRP will be a problem. Give your post some time, there is a lot of good help on this thread.

Lazerguy - thanks, yes I will leave some time to the others to answer, but I'm soooo eager to go run that Sphere TC + soon to be bought 4.5 screamer with good 7.4 L:

Revo61 - thanks . interesting... I tried an 81 spur in my car not later than saturday, and it hits the chassis AND sticks out... maybe you already have the upgraded motor mount?

All the others - thanks for any help/suggestion you can bring

Regards,
Paul

You must have been trying a 48p spur and not 64p. An 81T 64p spur would actually be super tiny.

Jaz.. ran the blue car last weekend!!! loving it... faster guys were in the 14.0 - 14.3s lap times... Blue car went 14.6s already!!! I did check the BMI chassis, it is 2mm longer.. I would like to run the stock chassis and see whats up with rubber tire racing. Thats with a diff and standard layshaft. Cant wait for the double one ways.. pretty sure it may drop the times down..

Im looking for a clean stock chassis...LMK.

Glad to hear it was hooking up that well for you already. Yeah, I couldn't remember if the chassis itself was longer or if the holes were just in a different spot....guess that mystery is solved. Dropping a oneway in the front and using the oneway layshaft and pulley should easily improve your lap times!

uh yes - that's the point I'm trying to make

I run 48P only (see above). And a 48P 81 spur hits the chassis (and sticks out) on my car. Let me know if what I wrote above was unclear in any manner.
