Do you think the alu outdrives are needed on the new diff?
I'm not sure. I went right to the alum outdrives. I may run them after the Reedy.

I still have the "Original Black Cyclone" and it is till extremely competitive. I have been slowly but surely upgrading to all the newer parts. The "COOL BLUE"!

Does the new TC car revert back to the Version 2 drive shafts or does it still use the WCE CVDs?

Later,

ha the good ole "updated version" discussion

My take on this - keep your current cars. The "stock" Hara/Surikarn/WCE cyclone is still a winner all around the world and this won't change, raised bulkheads or not. I've ordered some parts of the "pro" diff (spur, balls, screw, alum outdrives) as this is the only weak point of the car and I don't want to replace reliable metal outdrives with flimsy plastic ones (those of you who've already had ringed diff outdrives know how much of a PITA it is to work with them anyway), but to me the rest is just the usual "new and updated" marketing tune. Worst case, spend just $130 as someone mentioned above.

On another note - I just changed the CVD bones on my retrofitted Hara Ed. (which is still running strong, thank you ) and I noticed there is slight binding in that articulation pin that goes across the bome, the hole in the CVD bone seems to be somewhat small for the pin Anyone else noticed that on a recent batch of bones?

Thanks,
Paul

I think the CVD pins (moore edition) are 1.5x11mm pins and the universal joint pins (hara edition) are 2x10mm pins.

i've been running this set-up
http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/hotb...etup200712.pdf

but i made the following changes:
front block = F 1mm R 1.5mm
front droop = 6
front oil = 40wt
front spring = hpi white
rear droop = 6
rear ride height = 5.3
rear oil = 30wt
rear spring = hpi pink
tamiya red foam on top of bladders
front suspension arm spacer = F.5mm R 2mm
rear suspension arm spacer = F 2mm R .5mm
rear upright spacer = F 2.75mm R

other things to try:
1.2 mm front sway bar
reduce the rear toe-in block to 2.5

Karlo, the setup looks good.
