Cyclone S comes with a tub chassis, plastic bulheads and shock towers etc. The upper deck looks like the ta05. Shocks and hex hubs are aluminum. Needless to say its an affordable kit that could be even better than its counterpart ta05.

I'm in need of some driveshafts quite urgently, but I'm not sure which ones to get. For some reason I can only get hold of the Rear HD Steel ones and not the "Fronts", I've heard that the fronts are thicker than the rears, so how do you think the rears will hold up on the front? It's either these or the purple Hara edition ones, which I hear are thicker than the standard aluminium bones. Which do you think would hold up best up front?

Great news to see a Cyclone S released. There has been a serious lack of mid-range touring cars for the last couple of years.

The rear and the from driveshaft have the same size. The only difference is the diameter of the shaft.
Front diameter 2.75 mm
Rear diameter 3.25 mm
I don't see any problem to use the smaller on the front. I think this steel shaft will be better then the original aluminum driveshaft

I'm guessing you got the diameters the wrong way around.

Any idea on the diameter of the Hara ed. bones?

You are right. I made a write the diameters the wrong way around.
Front 3.25
Rear 2.75

No idea about the Hara. But with the original aluminium driveshaft, after 1 race I bend 4 of them. So, I will use the steel.

Thanks for the info, looks like I'll be going with the steel ones then.

Last night I bent one of mine badly and it just gave up in the final and sheared off, that's the second one I've done, and unfortunately my TIR CVD's are out of action at the moment due to broken/bent axles.

The rear steel dogbones won't fit in the standard one-way outdrive cups (the ball end is too big), but they do fit in the spool ok, and I believe the new hara/surikarn one-way outdrive cups

Hmm...any ideas whether the rear steel ones fit in the TIR spool? Also, do the Hara ed. dogbones fit in the original one-way cups?

Wow this is more complicated than I thought

I have some questions about the 1mm 2mm and 3mm shims for the Cyclone when you put these shims under the arm mounts and toe in pivot blocks what does that do.

I know it changes the roll center but what kind of handling characteristics do you get do you get more traction or less traction more rotation in the turns or less rotation in the turns

The reason why I ask is Im running on a low to med bite asphault with rubber tires I just want to know if you get more or less traction

You are correct domo, sorry for the previous information I give you.
In fact, the rear has a bigger "bone" at the end. The pings are the same.
Rear "Bone" Diameter 6.2mm
Front "Bone" Diameter 6.0mm
The front spool required accept only the small 6.0mm
I'm puzzled about the reason why HB did something like that.
Only to sell more spare parts ?
