Eno..I did the swap from to Hara
Your answer is better to all your questions
The build is straightforward (if you have already put a car together)
diff comes out the top (real easy)
standard set up inback of instructions good base staring point
Shocks heaps better
etc etc

Default FK05 & Cyclone

Thanks to RC Zombie and NOrdham for their tips and input. Concerning the FK05 and Cyclone...yes, the Cyclone builds just as smooth and eazy as the Xray cars. THe only thing is that the instructions and set up manulas the Xray cars is color and of better quality than the HB/HPI cars...or anyone else! Also the HB Cyclone is much easier to set up and get working easier than the FK05 as its a simpler car, and handles much better. Bearings are very high quality, and shocks are the same quality, but they do not have adjustable piston options, like Xray. Xray support is much better and parts are a little easier to get, but much more expensive. Cyclone/PRO 4 kits are more complete and race ready than Xray, since there are lots of several option parts that need to be bought separetely for Xray kits which come as standard on HPI/HB kits, like swaybars, C-Hubs, Spool, One-Way, etc...Xray quality of parts and sturdiness are a bit better than everyone elses, including HB Cyclone, although most of the weak parts issues have been taken care of in the Hara/Surikarn editions.

The Cyclone front diff is exactly the same as the rear.

Alternatively HPI do make a ball diff set for the Pro 4, which means all you need to buy then is the HB diff outdrives and pulley separately. I would imagine this would actually work out cheaper.

However, I have seen a Cyclone ball diff listed on a Japanese website, but nowhere else, can't remember the name of it now though sorry.

Yes there are complete diff kits for both the Cyclone and Pro4. The part number for the Cyclone diff is HB61393 (for the composite outdrives) there is also a cheaper plastic diff that comes with the Cyclone S.

Andy Moore used 3-hole pistons made by Tamiya.

The AE diff screw and T-nut do not fit the aluminum diff. The center hold in the outdrives have to be enlarged slightly for the screw to fit thru and the T-nut is to wide to slide into the outdrive, you have to file it down a little to get it to fit, otherwise you'll be hammering the T-nut in.

Words can not express how dialed this car is on asphalt. I had my first chance to run it this weekend at a big parking lot race and I was so impressed it wasnt even funny. Car responded to every change I made. Very easy to drive. Lots of corner speed.

Like Dave said, the Cyclone ran great this weekend. I put one of the plastic battery holders on the car from a t2, and it helped with keeping the battery it. It was hot enough my tape wasnt sticking very well.
