if you can still find them, the version 2 heavy duty bones (they have a line down the middle) can stand up to tons of abuse. i've running them with a spool for over a year now and they still run true.

I believe the new Cyclone TC has the HD CVA's all around.

Wait, I don't see what did you wished in the new TC's manual, i just saw "universal" ones.
Anyway, do you all Cyclone guys think, if this will be the last version of Cyclone then a little few months later, just later of IFMAR worlds will release all new 1 chassis kit. Like happened now in Tamiya, in the case of TRF415 MSXXMRE -TRF416
So, this idea is deviced from the situation in the last ETS, so that concluded of Tamiya is going close or maybe overtaking HB in the worldwide high end kit market.

the new diff is smooth as hell. We'll see how it runs on the track. The silver stuff used on the thrust balls seem a little runny but tomorrow/todays heat will let me know if I should go with the black grease. I'll give you guys a full report after the races.

Yup! I have the purple MIP's in the rear, and the steel ver.2 heavy duty's up front Still are smooth, and are way easier to rebuild because the set screw is bigger, so you dont have to have a tiny tiny driver to loosen/tighten the screw

car was awesome today. The only bad thing is that I broke a chassis today It was very windy today and the car took flight going down the straight and did some turns and landed vertically on the driver's side rear corner breaking it right at the rear screw. I was able to finish the day but had to purchase a new chassis for the next time out. The car was killer all day other than that and my wheel craking and flying off in the main while in 3rd

The diff is smoother as butter. It feels better than a fresh built diff using the old one.
