Default Um, no

Um.......no. Just saying peace. I have a relationship with the supreme one, but since you are conscious, you can pray for yourself.

I believe these are the Cyclone S arms. Plastic is not as stiff.

You will have to drill out the halfs due to the larger screw dia. and will have to grind about 1mm off the thread end so that it doesn't jam up the axle blade. It also requires a 1.5mm washer under the nut retainer.
The Kyosho part #'s are:


TF120---- Diff Screw (with two nuts)
BRG100--- Thrust Brg (Balls/washers)
UM124---- Spring (I think original HB spring may work)
TF113---- Nut Retainer ( this is a full tree of parts that has to bought just for the nut retainer)


I believe this to be the ultimate fix (unless you want to go with the Xray hardware). It's about 20 bucks in parts and like I said it's bullet proof AND there's a slot in the screw head just the like old one which allows for easy adjustments.


I haven't tried this with plastic diffs.
You the man!

HPI released a low traction arms set for the Pro 4 about 2 or 3 years back. Not sure if they are still in production, but they were extremely cheap, $10 or 6 for a full set (yes 2 front and 2 rear).

Low traction arms are still available in the market. It flexes more but breaks easily compared to the carbon composite.

Horizon hobby has them. Check for part numbers and stock status...that's where we picked them up from. They are a bit softer/more flex, and give the car much better rear traction and front steering...and they are not weaker than the regular arms...because they are a bit softer, they can take hits a bit better. This already has been discussed and tested. Its a great tuning option and must have for those who run Cyclones on asphalt. Try them out and you'll notice considerable traction gains in your rides...

Default Back to the diff again

Running my Cyclone, after 15 minutes or so, freshly built rear diff loosens everytime. Built per the instructions, allowed to sit while threadlock dries and I even use 1000wt diff oil! What gives?!?!?!

BXPITBULL: that sucks...that's the only reason why I gave up on Cyclones. I just cant belive HB/HPI cant come up with a better diff design. Its pretty cheap on their part. I know some have not had these issues, but many poeple have reported those pesky screws breaking, nuts getting loose, and outright melting or slipping, and how dirty they get- to the point they have to be rebuilt after every race or so for them to work nicely. I personally have had all these issues, and nothing is more frustrating. I have built them according to all the tricks in the book, and the bes I've had lasted a few weeks by the time they got extremly dirty, even with the dust covers, or just staretd to snap, or get loose, etc. Its easy: if you have a great diff design, people should NOT have to be buyin other manufaturers parts and experimenting and tweaking to finally getting your product to work. HB has refined and inproved their bones, spools, cups, chassis, etc, but they have failed to work on this issue, and it really sucks...

I've gone back to Xray and Schumacher, where at least these issues are very rare.

Drives me "nuts". Considering this has been the only drawback, I am considering this "flaw" to be minimal...providing someone can give me an alternative to solving this dilema. The car is an absolute rocket and barring this small problem, I am looking forward to crushing nitro cats for the entire summer. Mangoman, marcosJ, someone please let me in on your secret.
