There must be a reason why the right side it the way it is... yet to figure out what it is.. at least I can get the aftermarket option for it in purple.

another thing I didn't like is the color of the anodizing on the Purple ti tunbuckles...it's not an exact match.. it's more bluish than purple.

the new aluminum diffs are silky smooth.
the new 1 pc aluminum spool is a great improvement over the previous 2pc design.
new narrow pulleys are a welcome addition..no rubbing against the bulkheads.
but it still wobbles.
thicker diameter universal bones... I'm worried about the small groove in the middle of the bone...that could be the week break point on hard impacts.
the top shock cap still leaks!...from my previous cyclone..I'll install the Pro4 caps. it was air tight.

What's the issue with the right side center bulkhead? Pictures would help.

My hara's shocks don't leak. I had that problem on the first batch of the Pro 4s due to the cap not being threaded far enough. Thats not the problem on the cyclone, its the caps are too long and bottom out on the shock body before sealing the rubber diaphragm tightly enough. The solution to the problem on the Pro 4 works on the cyclone also. Get some extra diff shims, either the silver or copper ones. I put them in the cap then when you tighten down the cap, it puts more pressure on the rubber diaphragm so it won't leak. It doesn't affect the length or anything else about the shocks. I even saw on the Hara building tips he puts the shims between the rubber and the shock body, I prefer between the cap and rubber, just a better seal. Give it a try.

I'm thinking about leaving the dark side, I only race on carpet, what do you need to get a front diff and how long before the BMI carpet chassis come out, seem no matter what car you buy you have your buying different chassis so please show me the light
