Yeah, I used the pro4 bumpers on my cyclones in vegas and they are life savers!

Just trim to fit your bodies and they'll be fine!

The P-DUB pro4 bumper is a little thinner than the stock bumper for the pro4 and cyclone, but it still fits well. I used to use body washers underneath the upper bumper brace to take out the play.

Ok, ,question here. Ive been racing the cyclone on carpet now for a while. I want to look at using jaco foams but which compound jacos would be sthe same as 42r shore and 37r shore?

How much of a difference does the BMI kit make on carpet?

Guys, Thinking about jumping from the RDX over to this car for the upcomming carpet season. I have ordered the BMI setup.....now which car do I want? Is the Hara car any better /different than the standard Cyclone? It looks like with the Hara I need to buy a ft diff. Also, I see some guys are running xray springs, is this the way to go, because I have lots of them. Thanks!

if you are getting the BMI kit just get the cyclone s that comes with double diffs.

Are you sure about the S kit? It has plastic shocks, cheapo motor mount. I guess my real question is between the std cyclone and hara....is there anything I am missing if I don't buy the hara? It looks like I will need to buy a front diff regardless.

sizler--

I would recommend getting the hara or surikarn version...they come with all of the updated bulkheads which mean you won't have to grind anything and they are reenforced in certain areas.

Also, the surikarn/hara kits come with the locked center pulley while the standard cyclone kit only comes with a center one way... one less part to have to find and buy.

Regardless of which one you buy you're gonna have to buy a front diff....but I highly recommend the newer style aluminum diffs with blades!

Surikarn hit is pretty hard to come by. Some hobby stores over seas still have them though.

SpeedTech lists the diffs and other parts for the Cyclone but not sure if they are in stock. If you get the diffs make sure to get some spare blades. They sometimes break on a hit. Tower also carries Cyclone parts.
Good Luck !
