The TIR based spool for the HB cyclone does NOT work with the new v.2 driveshafts. The new driveshafts are too slightly larger and bind on the drive cups of the spool, also, the holes for the pulley do not line up as well.

yakuza, no problem with the help even though i may not always be right. on droop my understanding is that lower number makes the car react faster which would be more useful for quick direction changes. on high speed track i'd try less droop up front like 6 - 7 and in the rear about 4.5 - 5.5, higher if theres good traction. its worth a try at least.
peace out

Default Front one-way outdrives

I drove the car today and all I gotta say is " WOW " !!!! Very nice car and very easy to drive. I noticed something about the one-way differential outdrives. They look like they are almost coming out of the front one-way unit on both sides ??? Anybody know whats going on with this ? Thanks.

Nah, no Rocks this weekend. I have 1/8th scale points race next sunday and then its Viva Las Vegas 2 weeks after.

Yeah, im using the stock CVD I believe. Thats the one that came with the car. The front CVD's are fairly smooth when im on throttle while turning the front wheels. No clicking noises of binding whats so ever. Where do you guys get your cyclone parts ? Thanks again.

I've been getting my hard to get parts & option stuff overseas..
Precision Rc, RcModel, or Champs.

I know Speedtech and Stormer has parts...but sell out quickly.

if you need spare arms, hubs, 4* c-hubs... LMK... I have a box full...

Has anyone bought the diff set from Stormer Hobbies? I can't find anything from HB to say they actually do a complete diff set and find it hard to believe that they can sell a full diff set for just $5 more than the price of the delrin outdrives. Is it exactly the same as a standard Cyclone's diff?
