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??

just a fyi..
the Edit Ti.. diff screw is also prone to breaking...
save youself some money and stay with the stock diff screw.

Even so, the look of their parts seem to be pretty good, like the lightened layshafts as well which is why I am interested. I might see the price and gasp, but I have yet to find a place where I can buy these parts.

BTW RC-Zombies - you may want to trim that rear wing.

OK thanks for that, looks like I shall be going for this as long as postage to the UK isn't too much

61393 Ball Differential Set For Cyclone.

It's been available for awhile.

66403 Cyclone S without body.

66405 Cyclone S with Moorespeed Stratus body.

Stormer will probably be the first in the states with the Cyclone S kits and parts.

Anyone know what type of spools the guys at the worlds were using? Check out this site for pics. It doesn't look like the ones that come on the Hara or Surikan version cars.

I have the TIR spool in my surikarn kit fits no problem just use 2 orings behind the end of the dogbones.
Works like a charm

Thanks for the info. Just wanted to know if your v2 driveshafts actually bind in the tir outdrive cups? As mine seem to.
