Thanks,
Thanks Hiro, but the Cyclone manual I have (the pdf) definitely shows the one way going to the rear, I even had someone else look at it to make sure i wasn't blind and/or nuts

and thanks for the way to hold the pulley in place

does your car roll freely without your electronics installed. I had an issue of my center pulley binding because it was not centered properly

I had a similar problem when I replaced the belts in my car.. the old ones where allot looser.. so I moved the diff holders to the looses position for the belts and it fixed my problem..

Cheers

With my Cyclone the threaded end of the inner link ball studs hit the diff bearing carriers.

you might want to check your ball stud placement,short ones are for the bulkheads and the long ones are for the susp. if you put the long ones in the bulkhead they will hit the diff.

www.titc.in.th/

FYI for some current info. Don't know about good pics though.

Hi All, I'm not a cyclone driver yet but very sure it'll be my next car. Can someone lead me to a good source where I can get familiar with the various models of cyclone that have come out. I'd like to know for sure what I'm buying if I find a good used car.

Best regards

first of all i think the cyclone geometry as it was is still very good the only thing it needs is better lipo support.
this car I think it changed quite a bit.
so far obvious visual changes i've seen:
-new chassis plate
-new one piece topdeck (now including the old rear topdeck)

-new central pulleys (thinner, no more boss so mounted like yokomo?)
-steering servo rotated
-used (new?) alloy front steering blocks
-different FR suspension block?
-new rear shock tower? (this one is notched in the middle and we didn't have that yet)

and i can't see very well but there must be a new alloy bulkhead front or rear holding the spool or diff as the current cyclone cannot support a long topdeck over he entire car. so far i think it is at the front.

btw if you find more or better pictures please do post here!

I'm interested if HB will release a whole new car, or it will just be something to add on to the Cyclone. It seems like a lot to add on to the car.
