I got the Jet ones from RC Model in HK, but other shops also sell them, here's a link to them from Precision R/C:

Thanks for all the comments, I think the few extra purple bits compliment the black a lot more, in fact, I quite like the black now

it's almost like the Pro4. mainly all black with purple parts here and there...
now I see why HB/HPI went with black bulkheads...

are you qualified to take on the name Zombie?

pro4 body will fit...the rear body hole is moved back less than a 1/4" of inch
just elongate the rear and front is fine.

I didn't have to change the holes in my shell at all, although depending on where you mounted the antenna on your Pro 4 you may need to drill a new hole. I used the same hole and the aerial tube only bent slightly so left it as it was.

Hi Guys,

We got more HB Cyclone parts in stock, and some of you have been emailing about the 16T direct pulley which is in stock now.

Also, a note on the Square R/C hop-ups for the Pro4 , some parts will also work on the Cyclone as well like the knuckles, rear hubs, C-hubs and ball studs. Square R/C hop-ups are probably one of the best quality aluminum parts on the market currently IMHO

The bigger stiffer foam bumpers provide better protection to the front of your car than the stock one. It's just more insurance that you'll be able to finish the race if one of the other people on the track are driving rough and send you into the wall.

I've had a problem with the front diff bolts shearing off at the head. Anyone have any suggestions on how to stop this from happening? I went through three bolts in one day on both of my Cyclones. I asked Hara about the problem on Saturday at the Nationals and he didn't have any suggestions.

I've had TC3 bolts do the same thing. From my understanding the new T-Nut was supposed to fix the problems with the diff. I'm trying to find a way to use the original parts not AE.

Default ...diff bolts

...you're overtightening it, by just a bit, but it makes all the difference.
...and yes I've tried it out and that basically solves it.
