Robinson does but no one carries it. Im not sure the pinion would reach a spur gear that small.

Hi Robbie,
Here is the petit rc setup page for the cyclone. There is the andy moore setup from 2006 WC, some form Hara too.
Hope that can help!

Yea someone in here has mentioned that before as well, but what they did was they used the xray C hub as well so you dont have to file the hubs inorder for them to fit in the cyclone C hubs.

i personally havent tried it myself but am looking to try it out as well.

I think when Xray made the T2 they used the Cyclone/Pro4 to model after. The knuckles and castor blocks are near identical to the.

The T2 knuckles work well for me, and I dont end up with a bunch of spare rear hubs.

If you haven't broken the stock ones yet, then there's not much sense in swapping them out for T2 ones. I would say just see how durable the stock ones are for you, and when/if they do break maybe get T2 parts then. Just my 2 cents.

just race the car before you decide to hop it up...
I haven't broken anything on the car...
if want to protect the front end from breaking I suggest you purchase the p-dub bumber for the cyclone.
just curious..which car did you end up getting from Billy? std. black version or one of the signiture versions... Hara, Surikarn, or Moore editions...?

daveaustin5,

Dont get the 3Racing (#CY-31/PU) Alu. Bulkhead Cover (Sport Only) (PP), just get the pro version bulkhead covers and pro version shock towers.

Keep in mind that 3racing aluminium is generally speaking quite soft.

If you fit a spool or oneway to the car i would suggest not using the 3racing universals on the front of the car.
Also if you are running a spool or oneway get a spare spur gear adapter. I had one break at the holes where the pins for the plastic Cyclone S centre pulley go through the shaft.

I personally had some problems with the 3racing bulkheads, there are two versions going around. Others have stated they didnt have the problem but i believe most of those people were running the 3racing aluminium diff bearing holders.

You probably dont need a belt tensioner or the aluminium servo saver.

I have never liked aluminium knuckles or C hubs as i reckon they get bent (but im a pretty ordinary driver ). Whatever you do make sure you replace the stock Cyclone S C hubs, they are made of some really dodgy brittle plastic (but the rest of the suspension parts, like knuckles, arms and rear hub carriers are made of the normal carbon graphite)

Surely buying all the 3Racing options is going to make the car cost as much as a full-spec Cyclone anyway?
