So Xray went with a progressive spring now???? I'll stick with the linear for now.

My mistake they are still linear but they just feel a lot smoother on my car as compared to the hpi and older xray springs.

Cyclone speed here is the link the black xray springs:

I may check them out then. I wonder if they offer them in different rates compared to their colored springs. Like will they still offer a 14lbs and a 15lbs in the new style or do some weird in between ones. I guess I'll go do some quick research and see what the deal is. Thanks for the heads up on the new springs being stamped.

Hi all, i recently got 18t pulleys and belts for my cyclone and wanted to know what transmission ratio this now creates. Also what spur and pinion size would i use for a 6.5t, 17.5t and a 9.5t brushless motor.

If anyone could tell me that would be great.

Rhys.

Internal drive ratio for 18T pulleys is 2.1667. If you are not using a brushless motor mount, max spur 109T. Temp your motor to determine pinion size.

For rubber tires...

For 17.5 start around 4.0 FDR

For 9.5T start around 5.5 FDR

For 6.5 start around 8.5FDR

To find the spur/pinion combination: # spur gear teeth, divided by # pinion gear teeth, multiplied by Cyclone's internal ratio(2.166) = Final drive ratio

Spur
______ X (2.166)

Pinion

for 17.5 you want to gear around 4.0FDR, then a 96 spur with 51 pinion will get you a 4.06, which is close enough.

96
____ = 1.88

51

1.88 X 2.16 = 4.06

anybody know if the TC chassis could be used as a replacement for the Andy Moore edition ? I realize that there are a few extra holes but do all the important ones line up?
Thanks.
