Default HPI PRO4-Hot Bodies Cyclone parts compatability

Hi guys,
I am new to this car and need some info. I have not had any sucess locating one source to purchase all the parts for the Cyclone #67700 that I am looking for. I have found several places across the country that have some parts and not others. I even checked Hot Bodies Online, and they are out of stock on the steering knuckles #73507, which is one of the parts I am trying to get, and one I would assume anyone running the car should have as a spare. Anyway, I am wondering if any of the suspension parts from the HPI PRO4 would fit on the Cyclone. I realize the drive train is different, I am not concerned about that part of it, just want to get things that would break in a crash items that would attach to the chassis, knuckles, hub carriers, hinge pins, shock towers and stuff like that. I have access to a Pro 4 and spares, just wondering if any of the parts would fit. If they would, is the only difference the carbon fiber composition????

Chime in guys.

No Apologies Racing, don't believe me, try me!!!!!

#73507 is indeed a pro4 part number so would be identical. Trouble is this leaves your problem unsolved.

C hubs also the same.

The arms also fit .... although I dont think they are identical.

C-hubs, knuckles, arms, axles (these work to a certain degree), bearings, rear hubs, and bumper pieces are things i know of off the top of my head that are interchagable.

As far as the knuckles do yourself a huge favor and switch over to the x-ray t2 knuckles the are more readily available in the states or go to aluminum. Xray hubs are available through nexusracing.com with cheap shipping.

Also i just checked but speedtechrc.com has the cyclone/pro4 knuckles in stock
