It depends what sort of things you are likely to buy for your standard Cyclone as to whether it's worth it or not. There are a few interesting parts in there which may be worthwhile, such as the updated bulkheads, thicker driveshafts. Also, if you are wanting a spool then the Hara/Surikarn ed is probably worth the extra money as you will then not have to buy a spool and solid pulley separately. The next question is are you bothered about the bling and speciality factor? The Hara/Surikarn eds look extrememly nice and from what I gather they are quite limited as to how many there will be.

Cool, thanks for the info, BTW where can you get those ally hubs? also aside from stormer and speedtech who else sells HB Parts?

so...why is the HB European site so much better than the US site?

http://www.hbeurope.com/

There's even a Forum on the Cyclone...


I inquired at Stormer on the ETA for the Hara Edition..

This was their reply today:

wow..that's a lot of weight to put down. How much does your car weight with body, wheels, and chassis?

It's only 530z with 19t, CS-27's, Custom painted Mazda 6, IB 3800, Twister 2.1, KO receiver, Airtronics 767. I do use aluminum screws extensively.

aluminum screws...
hope you don't use them on the arm mounts or bulkheads...once the break..they're a pain to get out.

instead of adding all that extra weight... I'd stay with the stock steel screws.
