agreed, Titanium racing is all $hit anyways. Oh and they ripped me off so i had to file a claim with my CC and it took 3 months to get my money back. Scammers.

I've had used a TIR spool but its not that durable as the version3 spool, of which both complete spool and replacement are cheaper. Also I did more like the black color in combination with the steel driveshafts instead of the purple/silver colored spool, so no reason to buy a TIR spool

I just got the plastic tub Cyclone S. It was a fun build. But I got about 5 laps out of it before I broke a front hub and a very light tap at that. The part (HBS73507) is out of stock, I hope that in not a bad sign of it's durability.

Is there an aluminum upgrade for the front hubs?

Default hubs.

The front hubs a super weak. 3racing make some aluminum hubs for the car that are cheap. Also the The Knuckles will brake on you , 3 racing also makes those too.

here is the link:

there is also a bunch of 3 racing parts on ebay.

HPI also have genuin alloy hubs for the cyclone.

However the standard hubs and arms that come with the cyclone S are really pov. The carbon graphite ones are better but they still break fairly easy.

honestly the stock s hubs are weaker than the replacements, not sure why. almost everyone i know (including myself) who runs/ ran a cyclone s has broken a front hub. once you replace them they dont usually break again.

They are not just weaker... its like they were specifically designed so that they could with stand the rigours of having the kit sent out by regular post and noobs putting the kit together :P

If you see cheap cyclone C hubs make sure they are not the plastic ones from the Cyclone S kit.

We run the Cyclone S as a spec sedan in club racing and if you add a wide front bumper you'll be set. We use the BRP wide TC3 bumper cut and modified to fit. Works great.

Hello, i read pages in this and other forums about Cyclone TC, i see all specs and diff with the old car, is there diferents much parts.

This year i changed my old "Surikan Edition" (blue cyclone ), for a TOP Scythe, well, now i think to go back to HB, i have my old cyclone and read in some previous posts about updating with new pieces of the Cyclone TC, and the car still competitive, sure...i think is a good car.

But, i like to know, if anybody change from "Hara,Surikan,Black old cyclones" to a new TC, your feeling in the track.

I am preparing the cyclone, for a test and compare with the TOP in the same circumstances, if I decide by HB, probably purchases the new TC.

Thanks, Luis C.

i think the big differences are the swing arm designs, the chassis, and the diff. i am running a pro spec diff in my surikarn and can tell you the difference is night and day with that. as for the other stuff i dont know.
