you'll have to mod the diff and spool pulleys.

orinally had 6 balls.. now there are 12 balls in the rear. 3mm. no bearing shims. for the rear you'll have to drill out for 3mm balls.
for the spool. ream out the center to fit. the pulleys are wider than the newer thinner pulleys.

these are the same pulleys used in the Tamiya 416

I have the new pulleys and belts and ran them for the first time last week-end. It was nice to be able to back down on the pinion size. Personally, I'm NOT finding any issues with belt length. Mine actually seemed to fit real nice.
I feel ya on the kids. Too bad I'm not as far along as you. Sr. in high school, one sophmore, 5th grade, 2nd grade and 1st grade. Can you say lottery....ha ha ha

The Schumacher days sure were the good ole days. Everyone was very helpful to one another. It seems to be about the same in this thread too. I will run my car with the stock equipment then as needed I'll go to the other pulley's. I have two other pulley's besides the stock one. My buddy hooked me up with them. We'll see what this car can do whenever I get a chance to run again.

Has anyone noticed if you can get those plastic guides for the battery holders separately?

unfortunately theres no part # for the battery holders, I can only assume they won't sell it seperatly.

Anyways, where can you get a WCE cyclone for under $400 new?

hi, i need help from you Hardcore Cyclone guys, i just wanna know, is the cyclone and the Hpi Pro4 share the same suspension components? how about the CVD's? the reason i am asking is beacuse the LHS is selling off pro4 CVDs cheap, so i was wondering if they are the same?
