You are gonna have to make something else work. The blades for the Cyclone are $11 a pair (OUCH) so I went with the blades for the TC5. The holes for the pins are larger on the Cyclone so I had to slightly ream the holes on the TC5 blades to fit the Cyclone. I'm sure some blades will help with the wear on the outdrives.

It will reduce the wear significantly. Metal to metal with out lubrication is never good... I recomend Tamiya Antiwear grease since it is really thick and last a lot longer....

That's going to be the million dollar question. Do you have any TC5 racer's at your local track that will let you see if it would slide into the outdrives?

I don't think blades will fit into the outdrive. The universal pin fits perfect into the outdrives.

If you want to put blades on the universal pin Corally should fit but you will need to machine the outdrives bigger. IMO you are better off just greasing the pins and outdrive, well not unless you can open up the slots on the outdrives perfectly centered.

Again..... awesome driving!


tires:

sorex 36 preglued wheel from gm-racing was the only tire allowed (2 sets for the whole meeting)


bodyshell:

I used a heavyweight speed 6 with the frontlip cut down till there are only 3mm left and the side ofcourse trimmed accordingly so i can put the bodyshell lower (in the front!) as it is usually ment to be run ... passes the 115mm rule and gives you a little bit of extra steering

wing cut to 38*17mm so it passes the "lower as the roof" rule and mounted with 9,8mm overhang of the rearmost edge of the bodyshell

Hi there just use the Tamiya blades direct fit for driveshaft, you will have to lightly file and polish the out drive takes about 5 mins to do and had no problems with this running mod and no premature failure of blade HTH
