To all cyclone owners

I recently purchased a black version cyclone from Stormer and raced it and loved it. I am thinking of buying another one. I have the WCE edition on order at Tower. But I am thinking about just getting another black version since it is on sale. For those of you who have both the WCE and the black version, do you see any major performance differences between the two cars? I like the WCE for its bling but do you think the bling will contribute to significant performance improvements? I can imagine that certain parts on the WCE may be more sturdy. However, I can save money on buying the black version if the performance is on par with WCE. Do you think the parts on WCE will yield lower lap time compared to the black version? Please give suggestions.

Thanks

I can't comment too much on this as I'm still running the original black Cyclone, but I would imagine aside from the shock towers (which give extra tuning options), the driveshafts which apparently give different handling characteristics, and the new spool, there's not a great deal which will affect the performance/durability too much.

I own a cyclone S, Surikarn edition and a WCE. I dont think the extra stuff in the kit make a differance unless your a top pro.

the mip driveshafts are miles better than the std ones or steel ones but the rest of the hop ups dont really make a difference unless your Andy moore.

What's better about the MIP driveshafts? Are they just more durable?

Talking WC Edition Parts

Any one know where to get WC edition parts? Stormer has a few but most are on order, Speedtechrc.com has only about 2-3 items in stock...where can I get the MIP CVD's? The new diff screw and diff nut?

Need help guys,

My BE will coming here this friday and I would like to build a front diff before or while I'm building the Kit. Does any body have the part #s of what part(s) to use, reason is I'm planning on using an Alum. diff halves and not buy the diff kit itself. Or would the plastic diff halves on the diff kit be OK. BTW I would race it mostly as stock to 19t.

TY

Ty,

Larry and I have been running the Delrin diffs exclusively now for about 3-4 months (including Snowbirds). We have not had 1 problem running stock or 19t. The only problem I had was this past weekend with a super hard hit that sheered one of the outdrives off. Ya, I know, it's a damn hard hit. It broke many other parts too so it was justified. Thanks again for the parts Scooby!

Just get the diff kit. You'll be fine. Part # Hot Bodies 61393

The aluminum diff halves are Hot Bodies 61332 (you can always get them later)

ok, is it just me or does anyone else have a problem with the shocks. When turing the collar to adjust the ride height the blody shock cap spins and its really pissing me off. Is there any other way of stopping this?
