Yea. The bulkheads and such never changed geometricly on the TC. They just took the beveled edge they had on the older cyclones off so it's a sharp edge. Everything chassis wise should just bolt right on.

Yeah ive done that as well with the heat shrink, although i got a small file and tried to rough up the surface around the middle of the pin, but it didnt seem to make much of a difference to the surface of the pin.

No matter how much loctite I put on the right front CVD set screw that holds the pin into the axle it always broke free. None of the other 3 CVDS have the issue of coming apart.

Ya I know DONT CRASH THE CAR

I recently installed the MIP CVD to see if this will hold up better...I shall see come next race day.


I don't mean to beat a dead horse but can someone (other than a team driver) from Hotbodies USA please take note to what's being mentioned on this message board. You guys are possibly going to loose yet another racer due to not being able to get parts. HB is in Socal right????? Yet people have to order over seas to recieve parts. It's in black and white.....racers can't support a great car if they can't get parts. Is it an import problem? Just thinking out loud.

Trying to find the parts in the US to support a US hobby shop. I looked on RCmart and I didn't see the suspension arms listed.

I think I'll just keep useing the S arms as they seem to be stronger. As hard as I drove my Cyclone S in 13.5 I never broke a suspension arm or any other part for that fact.


As for putting a flat spot on the CVD pin I did that................ it didn't help.

The arms are pretty durable. It's the caster blocks and steering knuckles that are suspect. Send a pm to rcmart. He may have what you're looking for but it might not be on the website. He is really good at returning pm's with part numbers.

A good friend called 2 nights ago from Hong Kong and says that RC MODEL in HK has tons of Cyclone TC parts in stock. He picked up pro diff for like $50, plus a bunch of arms, top deck, and says they have tons of parts that just arrived last week.

check them out: http://shopping.rcmodel.hk/index.php..._id=32&&page=2

parts for TC already on-line...

Worse case I'm going to try and re-drilling the holes in the universal axle it's already toast from the pin comeing loose that oblonged one hole.

Wish my bro was still local (he moved to Bullhead City, AZ) as he had his own CNC shop when he lived in Calif. boy I miss having access to a CNC shop.

Thanks I'll try emailing RCmart.

Couldn't agree more. I love the car but parts are becoming near impossible to get.
