Are there any hints during the build that you can tell to an on-road newbie?

Ball diff building and shock building I am interested in in particular. Thanks!

The ball diff as well as the shocks have been addressed just a page or two ago.

the grub screw that goes into the MIP CVD's does anyone know what size heex driver i will need for it. My cvd's are loose and i can find a driver small enough for it.

Thanks for the help guys, I managed to find parts at tower. I didn't realise many of the parts for the cyclone are the same as those used on the hpi rs4 pro.

I found it easier to just type in the part numbers, a lot better then looking through the list.

I have found the Diff 100% better than the MRE, I used rocketracers help using the Hara method and it worked great. Also the guys pointed out to me that in the instructions with the WCE that the center pulley spur is the wrong way around to what the instructions say.

Quote if you have a moorespeed you probably dont want to use 3racing parts. You would be better off looking at some of the Square RC stuff. The 3racing stuff is well priced but some of the materials are not as durable.

Its just the MIP cvd's that use the inperial 0.050 driver

the hot bodies use a metric 1.5mm although a 1/16th imperial driver is a better fit if the grub screws are worn

Ive got a bunch of universals which are effectively version 1, such as the titanium racing and 3 racing universals. I think the excessive slop of these in the v2 diffs are creating a lot of wear but i cant work out if there is such a thing as diff cups for a v1 ball diff?

The manual for the standard cyclone lists the diff cups as part no. 70715 but these seem to be version 2 cups. The diff cups for the Cyclone S are effectively version 1 but i dont want to have to use those dodgy plastic diffs.

Any help would be appreciated
