Quick question...I'm playing around with my own carpet foam setup.Just trying different ideas.Running 1mm spacers all around at the moment. I think I could use some anti dive in the front.The Q is...what would be the difference between raising the FR.5mm or lowering the ff .5mm? Hope thats clear.Thanks,Mario.

Have you had a problem? I have ordered a ton of D4 parts from them and a few Touring car parts, all orders were complete and they had most everything. Shipping was ok.

This is a sore subject out here in Northern Cali. I won't go into it on the boards. I'll just leave it at that

There shouldn't be any reason they shouldn't fit. I am waiting for nexusracing to get them in and see what the price is before I commit. The expensive part is you have to switch to xray c-hubs which require not only the c-hub but the outer hinge pin, drilling a larger hole in the arm, getting the hat bushings for the c-hub, and then get the axles and hope the bearings all fit.

hello,

i'm considering coming back to on-road and was thinking of getting the cyclone s for spec racing here. however, wanted to check with all of you before i squeeze the trigger on a s kit or is there a revised version coming out soon?

i checked the hb website and the newest is the fully decked tc, but was wondering if there was a budget version of that coming out.

any word???

thanks,
hs

How much is reducing chatter worth to you?

ECS Drive Shafts $47.95 EACH
C-Hubs $6.75 EACH
Hinge Pins $3.95
C-Hub Bushings (steel) $11.95

Total approx. $125

It would be interesting to see if HB will come out with an ECS driveshaft design at a reasonable cost. The LOSI LCD is under $35 for a complete set of 2 driveshafts. With spools being used more and more these days a vibration reduction driveshaft design would be a nice upgrade to have available from HB.

The original Cyclone is still a very competitive car. The weakest link was the diff design. The new Pro-Spec diff took care of that problem.

Unless you just need a new kit, I would just upgrade to the Pro-Spec diff and maybe the WCE towers for more adjustability. If you are running 17.5 class you could get the 18T pulleys and belts to lower the internal gear ratio a bit.

Set-ups for the TC, WCE and Orginal Cyclones will be very close. The basic geometry of the car hasn't changed over the years. They have just added the ability to make finer adjustments to better suit track conditions.

Thanks for the info I rather get the Pro- Spec diff than spend all that $$
on a new kit.

Thanks to those whom have replied. I appreciate it.

I guess I just want to make sure I pick up a a good chassis in the Cyclone S.

I can't afford the TC spec right now, but just want a good competitive car out of the box. I just don't want to pony up the cash for a Cyclone S and then HB release and 2.0 version. That is why I asked if anyone here has any information if a new or revised Cyclone S will be released in the near future.

Any info?

Thanks,
hs
