Not sure if anyone has noticed this or not, but there are a few Cyclone setups from different drivers on the HPI Japan website, looks like it was all in 23T.

EDIT: I say a few but it's actually just Mio Hakamata and Kazuki Endo

Is there some plate available (1mm, 1.5mm) in order to raise the black pivot block???

I want to buy the purple cylinder nut from the pro4, does they have a O-Ring inside???

Thanks in advance.

you can buy the pivot block spacer set...

and yes..the purple shock nut does have the O-ring inside...

what is wrong with the stock shock nut?

Does the pivot block spacer have large plates for the black pivot block?
I think that the black spring collar spins too easily, when you turn the spring, the collar turns with it. And the purple ones looks great on the car.

nope, the pivot block kit is from the pro4, so just the regular pivot and f/r blocks...

hopefully hotbodies release spacers for the cyclone f/r blocks, otherwise it looks like shims and maybe the regular roll centre spacers might have to be used

I just got my kit today...unfortunately it was one of the early packaged kits with the bulkhead mis-packaging....

for racers in the US that received their kits with mis-matched lower bulkheads? if so..how long did you wait before you recieved replacements from HPI/HB?

a few complaints other than the bulkheads problems...

*no O-ring on the shock adjusting collar.
*round shock cap.. make tightening more difficult. I like the hex style shock cap. less effort to tighten
*
*
*
to be continued...

Default Spur Gear section Lots of Left Right Play

Hi Guys,
Just checking with you guys if you faced similar problems as me when fixing the Spur Gear section. If you follow the manual's orientation on placing the top graphite brace, there is a lot of horizontal play. Meaning the spur can be moved from right to left. it's like 1mm gap! When I turned the graphite orientation around, it becomes okay. However, when I checked against the updated manual, there wasn't any correction on this. What's your experience on this?
Lastly, other than using the Pro 4 front spool with lots of shim and changing to Pro4 universals, anyone come across a spool that's made for Cyclone?
Thanks.

the manual isnt very clear on this, but I think you need to adjust and fix the position of the fixed pulley and the spur mount usings the set screw to take up the play...

what i did was put the fixed pulley and the bearing on the layshaft and tighten it so the bearing is flush with the end of the layshaft, then put the spur mount and one way pulley + bearing +a thin shim on the layshaft, do not tighten the set screw yet, put the layshaft onto the car, push on the spur mount so the one way pulley+bearing+shim is tight against the bulkhead then tighten the set screw, remove the layshaft from car, remove the shim, and then place the layshaft back in the car and it should be just about perfect with very little play and no binding...

I had mine missing a collar for the rear diff.

So I end up using another bearing instead.

So far, with Pro 4 experience, I can build Cyclone without any major problem
