Can you tell me if they are new arms on the TC too? I mean are the rear arms slightly shorter or have HB just gone with a new mold?

New arms, they are the same arms left/right (so no more..I only have a left/right arm..etc )

Thanks,

AH

The TC has:
-New chassis/upper deck, accepts molded battery trays, additional cut outs for more tuning options
-New re-designed rear diff with a larger diameter diff screw
-Combination spool/one way front diff
-Comes stock with 18T pulleys/belts
-FRP middle block for added traction
-3.6 mm front and rear shock towers (front tower also sits lower)
-Re-designed sway bar mounts (more tuning options)
-Re-designed suspension arms (left and right are the same)

RE: WCE Andy Moore Cyclone
The WCE Cyclone was created as a replica of Andy's ride at World's, so it does have more "bling-bling" parts.
The TC is the next generation of the benchmark Cyclone chassis, so more function, less a few "bling-bling" parts.

Thanks,

AH
AndyH, where can we find the pro-diff and front spool/one-way here in USA?

Either on line at the HB shop or contact you're local store and they can either order directly from us or from they're distributor.

Have to see if we have the new spool/one way front diff as a spare part set yet, we'll be back in the office on Tuesday

Thanks,

AH

I have a brand new diff still in the bag..........it can be yours and shipped to you for $47 which is $42 for the diff (RC Market's price) and $5 shipping. I bought two when I got mine. Let me know if you're interested.

i ran this car for the first time on assphalt today and it performed extremely well with a standard tarmac setup from HBonline, that setup works extremely well on medium-hi bite assphalt. I opted for the one-way over the spool for forgiveness.

Track temp was probably about 80F, cool day, MuchMore 24r's were the hot ticket. They lasted the entire day (8 runs) and still have life left.

Sorry maybe i should rephrase my question...
I notice the front and rear lower arms for the HB Cyclone TC are not the same mold as for the previous models (black, Hara, Surikarn and WCE). They have the sway bar mounts on both sides of each arm and the first prototype TC that Hara tested looked like it had a modified front arm on the rear. So i was curious if the extra sway bar mounts are so the arms can turned over for further tuning options? Or are the rear arms just lightly shorter than from the previous model Cyclones?

Cheers

The new arms save you redrilling the old style as they have the new positions already moulded in.
Basically on low grip the hot ticket was to turn rear arms round and drill a hole 13mm form rear hub hinge pin hole.
This gives you a shock position between holes 2 and 3 from inside on standrd arms. thus you also had to drill new droop screw and roll bar mount holes
The new arms have all this so are a must buy again.
This extra hole dosent work on carpet but is superb on ashphalt.
TBH i found all my parts on rc market and after a inital hiccup they turned up real quick to uk.
