Pdubs are hard to get in my area and hey.....it's just a bumper right. If it saves an arm or a C-hub who gives a rip what it looks like.

ran my cyclone for the first time sunday, it drove amazingly! HPI/HB challenge is where i ran it at, in the electric sport (19t) class. 1st place in the 1st qual, 3rd in the 2nd qual, and 5th in the main.

Not a single problem the whole day. Great stuff.

Let me rephrase that. It looks like a more effecitve bumper. The parma doesnt look as wide, and if this is the case then it doesnt provide as much protection to the front suspension. Although its hard to tell, are they 30mm foams on the front?

the P dub is bigger

I think its a better bumper in all ways to.....

The P dub protects the wheels more, so less broken C hubs, and Knuckles.....

No argument about the quality of the Pdub bumper but, if you can't get one the T2 parma is a reasonable alternative.

BTW has anyone tried the square wide plastic bumper?

I bought the plastic plate but its huge compared to the stock (foam) bumper which fits over it. The stock bumper only just pokes out in a couple of places so it is effectively useless?
Wondering if i should bother forking out more cash to buy the square foam bumper which should go with it? As the p-dub bumpers are expensive to order into Aus one-off with the international shipping charge

Also i dont know if they still make them but has anyone tried the square titanium pro 4 wheel axles or cross joints?
Or has anyone tried the wheel axles with the standard HPI universal rebuild kit/HB unis.
I remember they were really expensive but im wondering if they are any lighter and if they are durable enuff to consider trying to find a pair to test?

Didnt you say you were smashing arms? Thats really odd you arent ripping apart the aluminium CVDs. They are fine on the rear but unless you are running a ball diff on the front you must have been blessed with some mighty strong aluminium.

Yeah, I changed to steel front shafts, the MIP's and a spool I went through both fast.....

Pretty much you HAVE to have 18t pulley's and the longer belts. Use a 47t pinion gear and a 78t spur gear. That will give you 3.6 FD, good luck finding that spur!

I'll assume your running a 17.5 motor?

nah im not running 17.5...not yet at least. Im holding onto 13.5 as long as i can. Was wonderin just for reference.

With the longer belts and bigger pulleys, what does the internal diff ratio end up being? I wanna do some calculations because it sounds like all that + switching to 48 pitch may do the trick.
