TIR don't fit although they are testing the shorter shafts this weekend.

Notice the black chassi and slots that are not right the way through the lower chassis on the foam car. Also looks like a spool on the rubber car and oneway ont he foam car.

I got mine yesterday Looks like a sweet car, manual is pretty straight forward. Looking forward to racing on-road again. Also, has anyone found any setups for this car? Any sites would be great.

Thanks.

We finally received our batch of Cyclones, so I was able to start putting mine together today...I think I'm going to call it a night, now.

I was playing around with a couple of different combos, and found out that the pro4 spool (and I assume diff) will fit in if you put 3.2mm of shims on both ends and use the pro4 universals. Attached is a pic. The dogbone end of the cyclone universals is a little different than the pro4...the "ball" of the dogbone does not fit snug into the pro4 outdrive. The pro4 CVD is also a little longer than the Cyclone's (I used the newer style japanese pro4 universal).

Hara's foam car also has straight carbon and not weaved, that's something we also saw on one of his Pro 4's...

Nexus, thanks for showing this, it looks like I will be using a Pro 4 diff in my car for the front also, and possibly the Pro 4 spool as it is cheaper than the one for the Cyclone and also purple What belt are you using? The tamiya one?

The belt? That's the stock belt colored with my silver sharpie . I did this all the time with my old tamiya.

The car builds awesome, especially the diff and shocks.

Here's a couple more pics...I got some more building done a little earlier. The car looks awesome with the black aluminum parts dressed up with a little purple hardware. The other parts I used from my pro4 are the aluminum servo mounts, graphite bumper brace, and shock preload collars.

The car looks great with all those purple parts, in fact I think it looks better like that then it would do with all purple aluminium parts I'll be bringing a load of bits from my Pro 4 onto the Cyclone to "purple" it up a bit. You've done a good job on the belts, they look cool, I'll have to do that too

Have you changed the way the shocks mount or are they stock? If so what have you done to them?

That's my question too.
What parts did you use to mount the shocks this way.
A list with part numbers would be very helpfull!
Thanx
John.

I think that, if TAMIYA style mounting can be used there will be no problems.

Tamiya style is similar concept... and if you pop the ball end off and on the ball studs... will result it more slop and shock easily poping out...
better safe than DNF's... keep the original ball and screw.
