Default Update your old style diffs

I just finished "modding" the old style alum. outdrives and diffs for the bigger 2.6mm screw and alum diff nut, 8thrust balls. Awesome is all I can say. Granted it took two packages from Hotbodies to get all the parts needed but it's a cheaper alternative to the new pro-spec diff kits.

I have been using that diff mod for a long time and I do not think that screw can break. I am using a shock rebound foam on top of the screw to keep the lube in and the dirt out, also the jaad diff covers. I can get 40 or more runs out of my diffs.

Update on the toe thingy: at home with more time i tried swaping one by one the suspension components again. I did manage to get 2 toe on both sides (thats with the 3 block). I also measured the chassis holes carefully and they seem to be ok.

Im thinking this is more likely a problem with the molded compenents, although it is weird both me and jorge had problems on the same side of the car.

I will try again to get 3 on both sides. If not maybe a 4 block will give me (i hope) 3 even on both sides.

hi everybody,
I've seen the Instruction manual from HPI Japan of the new Cyclone TC, and i notice that all the bulkhead(front & Rear) have a different Part Number in comparison with the cyclone Moore one.
Someone knows what is different?

Thanks

yeah, they changed the front & rear lower and upper bulkheads for the new TC. I don't know why, the old ones are awsome!

Says mid april on the translated HPI Japan site. How true that is, we'll wait and see I guess. Can't be too far off if they've got a manual uploaded on the internet and that!
