yakuza, the difference between 2 hole and 3 hole pistons is that the oil travels faster as there are more holes or bigger holes.

chicmagnet,sonic31.. so what kind of piston are you guys using? satisfied with your setup? currently i'm still using stock 2 holes piston, but i still found out that the dampers are still very stiff even though i use 35 shock oil for the rear dampers..

them using more softer shock oil will reduce the stiffer of your shock. 3 hole piston wont help much

Anyone run HB Cyclone S? I heard its really good and very affordable. First impressions? Can it take tamiya metric spurs(415,tao5) because I only have sets of metric pinions and really dont want to buy sets of 64pitch pinions. Thanks.

Yes, I have been reviewing one for a magazine. The car is fantastic - just planted in Stock Class and is fairly competitive too in Modified. In fact, with a Monster Stock motor in the Cyclone S, I was only a few tenths slower then the top Modified guy (Mi2EC) in fastest lap, and quicker over the run!!

The thing handles great, very smooth drivetrain too.

i have gone back to the kit 2 hole .after trying the 3 hole the weight transfer was to upsetting on carpet with rubbers ,even with a diff up front we spent most of the night trying to stabelise it .very tight track
had 40wt oil front & rear , springs pink`s front ,silver rear

now gone 40 rear 50 front 2 hole all round ,i forgot this car has a very short wheelbase , so you can go to soft easily

i was only 2 tenth`s a lap of track record which for my old age is not bad in 27t


did try the kit setup ,it was pigging awfull
so i have copyied Hara indoor rubber setup exc;;spool.one way ,roll bars
but every thing else the same roll centre plates shock positions
on a side note HARA nearly allways have 2 hole piston indoor or out !!

Thanks for the tip.. i just finished setup my car last night, with all round 2 hole 1.2 piston, 35wt front and 30wt rear, springs white in front and gold at rear.. 5.5 droop, running on spool on asphalt, i'll give it a try tonight, will let you know how is it.

i noticed that our car (cyclone) are actually quite stiff, so i prefer softer shock oil... and 1 thing Jolly, did u notice that Andrew Moore's setup from Italy was actually very soft too? i was suprised,and seems that he drove the car comfortably

I see. With a $150 price tag in my area it really is a good deal. Looks like a direct competitor for the Tao5. I wish all companies had this kind of package. Something that runs great without breaking the bank. I think the only thing I would change are the the plastic shocks and dogbones.

I just got a used cyclone without a manual. I have a few questions for this car (I prodominatly race mostly 1/10th and 1/8th on-road). Are hpi pro4 parts ( steering knuckles, arms, etc..... ) compatable for the cyclone ? Also, where can I find a spool for this awesome ride. Thanks guys.
