actually i did order Edit part from UK in the beginning of summer and i have tested it on my car what i can say is better you stay back with the stock diff screw i brought 4 diff screw and i also break 2 screw without runing on track it break when i break in my diff. some more is no cheap for the titanium diff screw. almost 10 USd for a screw. and i try the titanium hinge pin what i can say it also weaker than the stock hinge pin. bent easily when you hit lightly. again very expensive.

What are all you guys doing to break the diff screw. I can honestly say that I have never broken one, and I know a few other drivers using the car for over a year without breaking them.

I was wondering if I built my diffs correctly on my cyclone. The car works great but the pulley on the front and rear ball diffs(carpet(2) diffs) wobbles on occasion. I can straighten it with my fingers but invariably when I come back in from a heat, the pulleys are wobbling from side to side after the run. Im not sure it hurts anything but it doesn't look to good.

If you use the aluminum outdrives and AE screw and nut, you have to shave the T-nut down to fit in the outdrives and you have to drill out the center hole on the shorter outdrive since the hole is not big enough for a 2.5mm screw to fit thru. You also loose the ability to adjust the diff thru the small hole in the outdrive, unless of couse you groove the head of the AE screw. This way it will lock the screw with an allen key thru it so you can still adjust the diff with out popping off the rear ball cup.

Well it's official...the colour of the "Moore-Speed World Champion Edition" Cyclone will be, yes PURPLE. Taken off the HPI Japan site:

66450 CYCLONE MOORE-SPEED WORLD CHAMPION EDITION

World's fastest performance!
The Cyclone Moore-Speed World Champion Edition, a replica of the winning model in the 2006 IFMAR ISTC World Championship!

Andy Moore (Team HB) won the 2006 IFMAR ISTC (International Scale Touring Car) World Championship with his Hot Bodies Cyclone. Hot Bodies is now releasing the Cyclone Moore-Speed World Champion Edition, a replica of the Andy Moore's winning model for racers seeking the highest speed! This is a special version based on the popular Atsushi Hara Edition.



Nice looking spool:



New Driveshafts:



Also included are the new shock towers, ti hinge pins, diff screw, shock shafts, new wheel nuts and by the looks of it the carbon bumper brace.

looks nice, but the drive shafts look like the pro 4 ones

The shock towers are a good idea, I already have a set and the extra mounting options are very nice

Running 7-turn mod on high bite carpet, either the diff will slip or the screw will break. My friend is going to try running the ae diff screw, we already noticed you have to bore it our a little. We are going to polish the screw as well so there is no chance of binding and maybe drop a touch a loctite on the tip of the threads. If this doesn't work we are going '007

typical MIP's CVDs
unfortunately the Pro4 cvds will not fit the cyclone.

A.M. looks nice... After I get the upgrades...
I'll just rename my A.H. edition to the A.M. edition.
