Sorry for being a noobie on the cyclone, but what is a steering spindle ?? Someone also mentioned using a T2 spindle with a .25mm shim ? Could someone clarify this ? Thanks.

its the steering hub or spindle that your front axles ride through.they are a common part to break on the car when you take a good hit.

Here is the Tamiya part number - 53136 ONE-PIECE BALL THRUST BEARING

I would recommend getting the diff balls and thrust balls from ACER Racing though. It has always made my diff nice and smooth on previous cars, so I have just ordered some for my Cyclone as well.

And with Diff protectors, I went into a shop just yesterday and bought a Team Atlas set for the TA05 and it fits really nicely, almost as if it was made for the Cyclone (i have the narrower pulleys on my Surikarn Edition) so perhaps give that a go.

I had a look on the Edit Website - the parts look very nice for the Cyclone. Any idea of an online store where I could buy these parts as there is no distributor here in Australia for them??

the kit doesnt have a part number as of yet.if your LHS would like to put in the pre order they can just call it in.it will have a part number on the invoice for future purchases. i usually dont put kit part numbers into the system until it is ready for release.i should do it earlier to make things easier.

Kewl. Thanks protc3. I kinda figured that was the part the other person was refering to. So, T2 steering hubs will work on the cyclone. Other than the .25mm shim for clearing up tolorances, im assuming its a direct bolt-on ? Thanks again guys. Much appreciated .

Yes it is the complete diff set up. Actually I was quite impressed with what was included, new pulley, new bearings, new shims, new outdrive savers, new everything and containers of diff lube and thrust bearing grease. And yes the pricing does not make sense.
