i just got my surikarn edition today it seems that nothing different to the original kit the only thing that are different is color, upper bulkhead, 3.5mm F/R shock tower, Alum ball diff outdrive, one piece spool, aluminium servo mount, narrow 39t pulley, strengthen CVD bone, another thing is shock shaft with adjustable piston position. but i do not know what is that because i can find any different compare to previous black version.

Default Diff

Hi all,

I realy need to do something about diff in my cyclone. The car is awesome, but diff sucks. I've heard that someone is making delrin/alu diffs for cyclone. Is this true? does anyone knows where to get them? Or did anyone got a smart solution to diff problem?

Thanks a lot.

You'll have to be a little more specific than "they suck." What about them?

More specifics about a diff:
After 4 runs diff gets very loose. I've tried almost everything to keep it tight, but no luck.
