New Version My Ass (one really pissed out dude over here)
come on people the version isn't that exciting, just look at the hop - ups only Nr. 6 & 12 are interesting and i think that 6 is the shooters motor mount brace but i don't know.
and we don't race spools in Holland so waste of money and come on alu servo mounts that's 15 euro's about 20 dollars, and thicker shock towers Why ?? but i am curious about the blue version it will be one hell of a MSX wannabee. i want to see a battery bar and the multi-flex system i want it to compete against the new x-ray .
But if i don't like the black any more i am gonna make my one Florian Spec cyclone that will be all green with a hint al purple titanium (just my dream )

Greetings Florian

Default Hopup Parts

Hey everybody,

I just purchased a Cyclone and am looking for hopup parts. I am looking for Jet Racing parts. Is there any single store where I can find steering knuckles, and rear hubs? Are there any other strengthening parts that you recommend besides CVD's? Where can I purchase a good set for a good price front/rear? Lastly, does anybody know the difference between the TIR US Spec and Pro Comp Spools?

I apologize for all of the questions but I would like to purchase these parts before I start on the build.

Thanks

Hi,

You can also look into Square R/C aluminum parts. Very high-quality CNC machined aluminum parts. The HB Cyclone shares the same suspension components as the HPI Pro4

Square R/C aluminum hop-ups

The US spec TIR spool comes with aluminium outdrives, whereas the Pro Spec spool comes with delrin outdrives. That is the only difference as the main body of the spool is the same.

Which means you can buy whichever outdrives you desire as replacements

Some pics of my Cyclone.

I think they fit nicely as a wallpaper too in case you like them.

Where do you guys get those small Carbon graphite plates for your transponder mounts? Make them yourselves?
Looks nice!

Yep, the transporter mount is a piece of lexan with Carbon Fibre sticker from Kyosho..

The shock top mount is HPI. The importer in Greece was kind enough to open up a kit and give them to me..

I think it comes with the RS4 kits.

You are talking about the threaded ball pice, correct? did you also have to use the eyelet from that kit or is that your stock one?
