exactly! they are awsome! and if your outdrives ever wear out, try the purple 3Racing ones! they are awsome for just $12! they even come with blades for the cvd's! The stock alloy HB ones are nice too.

I've been running the HB aluminum outdrives, never tried the 3 racing ones. I do have a 3 racing spool I'll be trying out soon though. Wonder if it will stand up, Ive never run a fixed front axle before.

I was pretty upset with the 3racing spool. I had to drill the cups out to fit the 6x44mm worlds CVD's because they wouldnt go in very far. I ditched my ver. 3 HB spool in favor of this piece simply because it was purple and looked exactly the same.

The quality of the HB one is far superior, but once you drill the outdrives its fine. Now i got a sweet purple spool

that's his personal site...but there's another site in Japan which features Hara going over how to build the perfect Cyclone. It goes into detail with pictures and instructions from Hara step by step. I'm sure someone knows and can post that link.
Click here for the build guide.

There should also be links to parts 2 and 3.

The HB part number is 61333 and comes in a pack of 2 for around $10, but 3Racing also makes some that come in a pack of 4 for about $5. I've got both kinds but have only used the HB kind so far so I can't attest to how good/bad the 3Racing ones are. I just picked them up to try because they are significantly cheaper.

TC5 diff blades are like 5 bucks for like 8 or something of them

All you have to do is ream out the hole because the HB's CV pin is bigger

Much better for the price, and they last just as long

In my car the 3racing blue diff blades last a long long time and my out drives last longer also. I think it's because they are harder.

Are you talking about the 3 Racing solid axle?? The cups on the 3 Racing spool kit appear to be spring steel....not sure.

Hmmmm... I found quite the opposite to be true. Although they do work and the price is right I found they were not near as strong as the HB blades. They tended to stretch on me and come off the CVD. Not right away but didn't last near as long as the HB blades. Kept them around for spares just in case but never needed them. Since they are cheap and HB blades have in the past been hard to get, a set of them would be great to have around in a pinch.

I've only used the 3racing blades with aluminum diffs, with some heat you can close them up tight on the pins and they don't come off.

The 3racing spool looks pretty good and I was wondering the same thing, if
the cups are steel I'm going to get one.

There you go, 3 bucks for 4 sets of blades, there plastic not derlin like the HB's one, but for the price of them, you can get 4 sets of them for almost the same price, and have 16 diff blades lol... Much better deal, and they work awesome!
