Each radio is different. Just make sure that at full lock left or right, that the steering knuckle is about 1mm from touching the Caster block. Most of the time each side will have a bit different EPA value, so set each side accordingly.

About the rear end sliding around....when is it doing it: corner entry, corner exit, mid corner?

What surface are you running, and what set-up do you have?

I'm one of those guys that just sets the steering up to lock, but never actually turn the wheel all the way. So for you I'd do what yyhayyim said to do. That should be a good overall starting point.

At the track now and have been chasing problems with my car all day. The problem that I am having now is at any large amount of steering angle the steering freaks out like the cvd's are binding in the spool or something. I am running a 3racing spool ground out to fit the wce cvds

Some time ago on this thread there was a link to a really good cyclone gear chart for 16t and 18t pulleys. Ive tried to find it but cant, can some one put a link back up. Thanks

Right guys I need some help. Im going to be running an LRP 13.5 brushless motor in my cyclone for the 1st time. I need to know what spur gear sizes I will need and what pinion sizes as well. I have the andy moor wce with the 16t pulleys. Im told to gear this motor around 4.0 on a large asphalt track. Any other advise ref 13,5 would be use full

You pretty much got it. 4.0 is close to what I use with the lrp 13.5. I used a 91 tooth spur with pinions around mid 50's.

Oh and gearchart.com is good for gearing. They only have the 16 tooth pulleys I think though.

4.0 seems a bit excessive for a fdr on a 13.5 may want to stick around the 4.2 range at the lowest. I am running a 92 spur and between a 50-53 pinion depending on which track I am at

I agree, But my lrp motor really needed to be geared abnormally high.

I run a novak 13.5 and gear it 88/46. I run the lrptc speedo and the motor comes off around 140 ish. I run on a long narrow track that has a very long straight and a tight infield. Next week I'm going with an 47t pinion. I also run lipos.
In general let temperature be your guide. 160-170 being the tops. (IMO)
