How durable are the TiR CVD? My stock front CVD are both bent already without any big crash.

Also, are ceramic bearings worth the money?

I have crashed hard with my TIR cvd's and they are still straight like an arrow. I also installed a p-dub bumper for extra front protection. I actually modified a TC3 bumper to fit since it's a little wider than the Cyclone one.

i have talk to their marketing manager during FEMCA 2005 in Malaysia. He say currently they only make racing shock spring set, titanium coated shock shaft, middle brace for cyclone. and for pro 4 they made 2mm ultra flex upper deck, 2.4mm lower deck harder than original 2.5mm some more it come with 3700 and 3800 battery slot, titanium coated shock shaft. the quality can say very good due to they have quality control.

Direct fit! The only thing you need to do is:

Need a spacer for the universals because the TAMIYA hubs are thinner then the Cyclone hubs. Other then that, it's a direct fit. Also the use the TAMIYA 415 sway bars for the rear.

I tried it last night. Had a lot of traction after testing. I ended up using TAMIYA blue springs on the DJ ProMod suspension.
