is there an original hotbodies ball diff that you can buy for the front now or do you have to build 1 using other parts?

You must build one from scratch. I opted to use the HPI outdrives instead of the ridiculously over-priced HB outdrives. I didn't mind having to add about 3mm of shims on each side. (3 packs of 10 shims each isn't that much money). Also, if you use the HPI outdrives, you can use longer dogbones, but the stock length will still fit.

when you say you can use longer dog bones do you mean, you have to, to make it 100% correct... and does that mean that the pro4 driveshafts fit ok?

+how much is it likey to cost for all the parts required for the diff? (in if possible )
cheers

The Pro4 dogbones will fit, but so will the HB dogbones.
All the parts to make a diff will cost 30-40USD.

From my past experience with Champs... I know they charge alot of fees, CC/Paypal fees, Taxes, handling, shipping, and sushi fees....

I guess I'll wait awhile til it hits the US. Ths cost may end up the same if I were to buy overseas. No big hurry to get one.. Hara Pro4 is doing great.

Ask on the Xray or Schumacher thread. I dont think anyone owns a Cyclone within 400 miles of Miami.
