thanks again for all the help, its keeping me on the HB side
If you take the upper bulkheads and the shock towers together, and put them on the cyclone TC they work fine. The Cyclone TC upper bulkheads were beefed up, but when they added material, they had to move the shock tower mounting location 2mm higher. To counteract that, we use the shock towers that are 2mm lower so the overall height is the same as the moorespeed edition.
So... just for ease of reference:
Moorespeed upper bulkheads + moorsespeed shock towers (and older cyclone shock towers) = stock geometry
Cyclone TC upper bullheads + Cyclone TC shock towers = Stock geometry
Moorespeed upper bulkheads + cyclone TC towers = 2mm lower than stock geometry.
Note: I have heard this can have some benefits in super high traction conditions, but I have never tried it personally. It would also allow you to lower your body more for foam tire carpet racing, but even the stock stuff is pretty low as it is.
As far as everything else, everything else can transfer over. The diff from the moorespeec can go into the TC, but it isn't anywhere near as good as the prospec diff that comes in the cyclone TC. You can't mix parts between the differentials though.
Arms, knuckles, caster blocks, rear hubs, hinge pins, chassis, upper deck, ect... all transfer over.
Hope that helps some
