You can try Hara's setup (you can find it in the hpi japan website). With a spool the car is perfect.

Ok,

Go to:
http://www.hpiracing.co.jp/index.html

then click on the large cyclone item (under Hellfire and Baja)

then click on the japanese word (the one on the right) which is just under the cyclone picture, you have a lot of setups.

Default Spool

anybody tried the TIR spool yet? how durable is it? (which version)

does somebody know how the HB spool (HB61045) will look like? same concept as the HPI spool (full aluminium) or maybe another concept?

we're just thinking about new ideas for a very durable spool... which should also be affordable. maybe we'll produce a cyclone spool in the future - if there is some time to design it

the TIR is similar to the Shooter Spool.. but without the o-ring on the drive cups... haven't tried it...a little too expensive to ship from UK to the US...
over $60.00usd for spool and shipping.

the HB spool will most like look like the Pro4 version. hopefully in Purple.

the Spool I like (but no cyclone spool available) is made by Speedtech. made of lightened steel. very durable and last a long time...

I've tried the TIR spool in my car this week. I've the one with the delrin outdrives, but you can adapt the steel outdrives. This spool is lighter than the one-way which is light. I made 20 runs with this spool with no wear. I think this concept is the best (with replaceable outdrives). I've also bought the TIR cvd and they are very strong and very very light.

With hara's setup from reedy race USA the car was amazing.

The TIR Cyclone Spool is also purple

I ran it for the first time the weekend and its spot on not a sign of wear whichever wind (motor) you run, and having the replacment delrin outdrives is very useful. It comes with aluminium savers for them too (would of been nice if black of purple though).

It is extremely light too.
