only major hop-up you need is either the BMI or HPI 3mm chassis and 2.5mm upper-deck.
or you could buy my Hara edition that comes with a 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm chassis and 2mm. 2.25mm, 2.5mm upperdecks...
but I haven't quite decided to part with it yet...

Actually I have the standard kit and I am very fast with it without the stiffer chassis. All you have to do is find the right setup and I can help you out with that if you would like.

I was considering purchasing the BMI chassis for carpet, is this a good investment or is there another aftermarket 3mm chassis out there!

I bought the BMI kit. 3mm chassis, top deck and shock towers.
I personally wouldn't recommend anything else!!

BMI makes awesome products.

Yep, it has the lowered shock towers, and it's the standard graphite color.

AMGRacer-That's a good observation. That might mean either the Cyclone is generating more grip and therefore heating up the tires a lot more OR you just drive much smoother than your pal
I still have no answers on the tire noise thing, but the cyclone still does it. Quite unusual.

On another note I put the Cyclone setup by Hara for Yatabe Arena on my Pro 4. It works a TREAT. I think the cyclone and pro 4 are very similar in performance. The cyclone feels like it has more turn in, but the area where it is better is on power. Corner speed is not that much different from what I can see, but mayby it is just my track.................

So I'm hearing a lot of positive things about the BMI parts for the Pro 4, but I can't find their website. Can someone throw a dog a bone?
