Default Cyclone converted

Got a Cyclone for Sale/trade. Hopped up with Hara parts from a new Pro 4 I bought for parts (toe blocks, ball bearings, aluminum threaded shocks, purple lock hexes, purple servo mount), Pro 4 carbon arms, Hot bodies main and upper woven chassis, titanium racing aluminum outdrives front and rear, 81 tooth delrin spur. Finally got it dialed (4 runs) but realize I prefer shaft. I am looking to trade for an HPI Pro4 roller, preferably Hara. Seeing that the Pro 4 is discontinued, I need to make sure I have parts to boot. Money wise, I think $225 is a fair asking price.

This is a roller only. I am keeping my electronics. These are pics I have from the Cyclone page and it took some convincing (of myself) to actually put the car up for trade/sale. The shocks will come with Pro 4 black medium springs. I found that the Neo Yellows are to stiff for this car.

Is that a Cyclone "S" ? I see the plastic towers in the front and rear. The motor mount is from the Cyclone "S"

Instead of trying to put me on blast, why dont you read the headline "Cyclone Converted". I didnt change everything. Motor mount, shock towers are from the S. Main and upper, woven chassis. Shocks threaded aluminum. Ball bearings, no bushings. After 4 runs, (3 of which with the hop up parts), $225 is fair. Heck, the chassis's and the outdrives cost me $175 alone. If you arent interested, it would help if you didnt attempt to deter those that are.

bx,

I've got an original Pro4 with the following:
3mm main chassis
2.5mm upper plate
cf camber plates
carbon driveshaft

right now it's got broken hub carriers in the front, and I'm waiting for my local shop to get the replacements in. I just built up the BMI Cyclone and I'm loving it, so I'd love to swap for a second Cyclone so I'm not going back and forth between the two.

If you want to wait, I'll know tonight if my LHS has the parts in, and then we could do a straight up trade, or whatever floats your boat. Since I'm running the Cyclone, I'd like to keep all of my compatible spares, but I can throw in everything Pro4 specific since I wouldn't need it anymore. I'll check my pit box tonight and let you know what I can put in, and I'll try to get some pics.

Mike

Jtracker, not that I wasnt interested. Initially, it seemed that you were somewhat reluctant. Johnboy Walton hit me with a bit more of a lucrative deal and mailed the items out quick fast. Sorry.
