Default Pro-4 to Cyclone conversion

Cyclones are stupid expensive, and I haven't come accross any within reason on Ebay. I have a Pro-4, but the shaft is not doing well since I upgraded to mod class. A couple friends have belt cars, and they handle the extra power just fine. I know they share several parts, but how hard/expensive would it be?

the cars only share the same suspension parts...arms,hubs, c-clocks..
cheaper if you just buy the whole kit or even a used one...
Cyclones are not expensive...just as much as any competition level belted tourer on the market.

There is one for sale on rctech for 250, it's only been built. Good deal. You would spend too much money "converting it anyways. But since you asked, I'll list what I can off the top of my head. The parts that you case use from the Pro4:
Diff internal parts
Suspension parts (arms, hubs, knuckles)

You need:
remaining diff parts (pulleys and outdrives)
driveshafts
bulkheads
motor mount and middle bulkhead
chassis and top deck and all cf parts (brace etc)
center layshaft
belts
steering
FR and RF pivot blocks
misc bearings and hardware
more...

So you're not really gonna save any money.

After collecting all the parts (NIB) to convert your Pro 4 to Cyclone, I can garantee you the money you spend could possibly buy yourself a new one..

Like real car, buy those "lightly used" used car....a lot of ppl running them indoor on carpet....I just got myself a used Xray T2 for $225....chassis does not even have a scratch on it...car was like 95% new. for $175 cheaper. ME LIKE....

Oh....what about the poor ppl (like me) version of Cyclone...Cyclone S.

Yeah. I agree with them. Keep the Pro4 and get yourself a 2nd hand unit of Cyclone instead of converting. You'll probably spend around $250 or more just for the conversion alone.

Thanks guys, I'm hesitant to get a new one, or drop more than a couple hundred on a used one, because I'm not even sure our local on-road race program will survive this year. The support is dropping off due to lack of attendance, and there aren't any other on-road tracks close enough to make it worth it. Thanks again guys...
