To someone who actullay has the car-

What castor blocks are standard? and do you get all of them like you did with the pro 4?

Cheers

I currently run a pro 4, I am a pretty decent driver I have made b final nationals at modified meetings before on a regular basis and have ran the pro4 for 2 years and it is the best car I have ever driven and am looking for a new car for next season and am looking between the yok bd and hotbodies cyclone, I like the strength and quality of parts better from hpi/hotbodies than yokomo but there is alot of people running yokomo bd's in the uk and my club thus making setups easier to come by. I am going to run my dads yokomo bd this weekend at the modified national. I was just wondering if anybody has made the switch from the pro4 and found that the cyclone be even better.

having just got my Cyclone and run a Pro 4 previously I would go with the Cyclone as you will know the set-up of the car and also have loads of spares as lots of bits are the same...

the kit only comes with 4deg c-hubs, which is another very odd thing, considering the pro4 comes with 2, 4 and 6

I have tried different castor blocks and always end up going back to the 4 deg
as do most of the top drivers I know that drive the pro4 so i don't see that you would need them with the cyclone.

I understand that they are toy cars, maybe I should've made my original comments clearer since stating that "it's better than anything I've driven" does come across as "I got a new car and I like it better than my old car."

What I meant to communicate was that after switching through various cars with various setups, the Cyclone has the "feel" I have been looking for in that it has lots of steering and traction at the same time, with very little done to the car. Hopefully that clarifies what I meant.
again...reality pill...a joke...

you still didnt get the joke, in 21yrs of playing with toy cars i have never heard some say "man this new car i just spent almost $500 bux on really sux"
its a joke, get over it.

Right here is a quick build review of my cyclone:

Parts fit:

Very good, comes with shims to shim up the diff's, axles and wishbones. I shimmed as kit and its proved just right.

Instructions:

Totally shit. Shows bits been fitted wrong (oneway center pully) Spur mount is shown different ways in all different pics of the car etc.

Setup advice:

Totally lack of a setup advice for a kit of this cost. I would have liked a base setup for outdoor and indoor from hara/karn. It comes with a base setup none specific to any track.

Kit spec:

IMHO the kit spec for a $449.99 car is pertty bad. Ok it comes with a full set of roll bars but that is it, no wheels, a shock oil that is no use at all (ok we all have oil so why include it) a center shaft for running locked but no locked pully (Dont include the shock oil and throw in a pully) no different suspension toe blocks (415 comes with a range) also comes with alloy front drive shafts which for anyone who runs indoor are going to bend. I could go on and on but i am gonna stop.

Although its a very nice kit and the parts fit is very nice the overall spec is IMHO lacking.

Is the car easy to build without a manual?
