Used all the parts that make a Pro4 diff, except replace the bevel gear with the Cyclone's one-way gear obviously.

Total, I put about 6-7mm worth of shims. Space it evenly so the outdrives stick out evenly out of both bulkheads. You WILL need Pro4 CVD's/dogbones because the kit ones are too short.

Here is a pic from Nexus Racing as an example

Default Spool

We just got our first prototype spool which fits perfect on a HB Cyclone!
The main advantage to other spools is the possibility to use tamiya 42mm steel dogbones OR the original HB aluminium dogbones!

The cup joints are made out of hardened steel the rest will be out of BLACK anodized aluminium.

We just released it for our friends and some team drivers in very small quantities.
If there is big interest maybe we'll produce another batch.... what do you think??

how is this possible? i was under the impression that the drive pin on the tamiya and HB dog bones are different sizes.

looks good tho! make one for the pro4 now!

correct! that's why we made two different types for the cyclone - but the "tamiya dogbone vers." is our favourite!

heres a pic of my newly built Cyclone, as set up for carpet/foam racing:

i haven't actually raced it yet, but here are things i've done so far
- pro4 diff/cvd's
- corally RDX springs (perfect fit)
- Jwerks 102t spur
- custom 1.8mm front sway bar
- dremelled suspension block to accommodate higher roll centers

things I want:
- locked center pulley
- thicker chassis if a reputable company makes one (i got word that BMI will not be making one)
- Jwerks ti. screw set
- APS ceramic berings

I Run my cyclone today on carpet stock and it was unbeilevable it handles really great lots of turn in steering something the pro4 lacked after every run i put it on the tweek station and the bubble was always in the middle never tweaked or nothing car ran flawless i did run a diff in the front .i dont think the car needs a thicker chassis unless you are running like mod but for stock and 19t the stock chassis works great .
