These seem to only be available from Hong Kong. Once you have the Pro D bones fitted the spool outdrives become the next weak point, I have a Roche spool ready to fit in mine which I'm going to run with T O P Photon bones as the Roche spool outdrives slots are too narrow to take the Pro D bones. Apart from a few shims here and there that's it. Enjoy!
i've used the dcvd's since they came out,in my cyclone,i know there kinda expencive but if you keep um greased they last forever!i like the 1.2 mm 3 hole pistons my self but thats with my exotec hara cyclone but with the new car i'll have to give it a try i've got a set already!

Anyone know why the old sway bar from the TC is being used on Haras car at the Reedy race? Along with the moorespeed cyclone sway bar holder.. is it a better sway bar setup compared to the new TCX setup?

I think those guys use that setup because they feel the bulkhead won't get tweaked by that bar that runs across lower halves...I know there was some dicussion a while ago in the cyclone thread - but can't remember where and the exact reason why...

I run that style setup on my cyclone TC and its cool because the swaybay freely pivots up and down (like its supposed to with the suspension arms) and doens't move left to right...plus you won't get the sway bar all binded up with the set screws..I'm actually going to switch mine over to this setup as well - I was waiting to see if anyone actually done this
