Hi Guy,
Does anyone have try to used pro 4 harden steel universal joint into cyclone front? because if using the original aluminium drive shaft i think it would twisted easily if runing with front spool.

I think he is referring to the drive shafts which go in between the diff outdrives and the axles.

The Pro4 driveshafts are too long, they do not fit the Cyclone.
New release 61043(front) and 61044(rear) HD Steel drive-shafts, specifically for the Cyclone.

CVD is an acronym for Constant Velocity Driveshaft
There are quite a few different names for them, strictly they arent Dogbones, a Dogbone is used where no CV joint is present.

CVD is design and production by MIP it. for US or Europe version HPI kits will using only but in Asia the not using CVD they will using Universal Joint.

In the kit both front and rear CVD (#70710) are the same length, im not sure of the reason for the new steel CVD parts coming in front and rear packs.

From what i had read after translate to english it say that no different maybe they want to make more easier for consumer buying.

The front and rear HD driveshafts are 44mm long, all we can guess is that the front ones are slightly thicker to take the strain of a one-way/spool.

So what to get, i heard someone talk about tamiya drive shafts & one-way cups ? but i think the hb drive shafts will do the job, my dogbone is already a bit bend and the winter is coming so indoor with those skinny drive shafts will be a blast , and a spool they say here in holland that it's bad to run a spool cause you will destroy your whole drivetrain so what are the benefits of running a spool. i heard someone talk about that the yokomo bd titanium screw kit will fit the cyclone and that you can do the whole car ? so please let me know before i buy things that don't fit !

greetings hollowman

Yea, I noticed a slight bend on one of my front driveshafts after 2 indoor meetings.

Unless you already have the BD titanium screw kit there's no point in buying it for the Cyclone as manufacturers already have a kit for the Cyclone available I would imagine. I know for sure that Titanium Racing do.
