Reading about which spool set up is confusing.

I have an original black cyclone that I want to run the spool set up. What is your recommendations and part #'s stuff I need to have?

thanks

I'm pretty sure the shop where I work has an MIP rebuild kit.

Try giving them a ring, 01302367676, it should be in a nice big box with a load of miscellaneous HPI parts.

I checked on BMI website but did not see it....Can you give me the link to it? Thanks.

Also, is the steel drive shaft (PN 61398) compatible with the axle that comes with the original cyclone? Does this shaft compatible with all version of the spool? Thanks.

Just in case anyone wants to know. I just got some steel 61043 front dogbones and they are the exact same as the aluminum 70710's that come with the Cyclone kit from Stormers Hobbies. The steel 61044 rear dogbones look exactly like the front ones, kind of weird, different part numbers, same part?

I found out though that the diff pulley part numbers are now A495 for the rear and A496 for the 3 screw front one-way. I can't seem to find anyone that has the A496. does anyone else know?

I've searched every shop I can think of.
