Any suggestions for a good spool and driveshafts for the cyclone in modified?

I ran mine in open modified at the Scottish GP with a Novak 4.5r brushless system and after 2 or 3 runs the standard steel spool was worn away and I threw it away. Also, both front driveshafts were bent, like really bent - they looked like the curvature of the sydney harbour bridge!! The TiR thick titanium driveshafts look decent? I heard that HB are making thicker ones too? Maybe a spool with replaceable delrin outdrives would be the way forward?

Also, I run permanent 4WD so I bought the fixed centre layshaft and use a 16 tooth solid pulley from a 415 as it fits nicely....only thing is, there's now gaps between the pulleys and the spur gear holder, is that normal?

Thanks,

Dan

The steel front dogbones are a must if you are the kind of person who hits things. What you can do is:

Get the Tamiya 44MM steel dogbones, get some corally driveshaft blade protector things, and file, mill dremel the slots on the spool out so the driveshaft blade protector things fit in them. You will just have to replace the blades alot.

dont get the spool with the delrin outdrives, I had them on my pro 4 and running the 4.5 motor i keep tearing them up, with my Cyclone my good friend Jason (BMI) machined a awesome front spool for my Cyclone ,and along with the HotBodies steel axles the front end is almost bulletproof. I ran it a bout 8 races and no sign of wear.

Dan - your best bet is to get the spool from the hara cyclone and set of the hardened front drive shafts from HB. I've got a set on mine on the car that I had ready for the GP. I think all the new style driveshafts (with the grove on the middle of the shaft to seperate them from the old version) are aluminium. The HB ones that I'm using are steel - just like the one for the 415.

This is a good read - http://www.hbeurope.com/news/en/2006050401.html

You need the new HD ones if your running the new one-way, but my car appears to work fine with the old HD ones with the new spool.

Mirage have the new HD's in stock btw.

I've noticed something really weird in the Reedy Race pics on the HB website.

Why does Hara's car in the top right of the picture have a Marc Rheinard name sticker on the back window?

Answers on a post card please!

That's an HB part number.

Tamiya don't do dogbones in 44mm, only 42, 46 and 48.

Is it definately Hara's shell - looks like there's someone elses underneath.....just cos it has a hara sticker and it's black can we assume it's his shell? Marc uses the Twister ESC remember.....although the checkpoint sticker points towards hara I agree....
