A long link gives a lot of body roll in turns.
It feels as is the body is willing to keep on rolling, until in the end, the springs prevent it from rolling any further.
The car has more grip in corners, especially the middle part. But: if there already is a lot of traction, long camber links can slow the car down in turns.

A short link makes that the body doesn't roll as far, its tendency to roll drops off as it rolls.
It feels as is the car generates a little less grip.

That pretty much sums it up I think, hope this helps.

No this is definitely not an import job. I've heard that they are coming in with extremely limited quantities, something like 10 of each. This means that all the modelshops that wanted them had to pre-order to get them. I'm guessing they haven't shown as being in stock as they'll have been got in and sent out straight away.

I'm not sure but I think there may be a Surikarn Edition available from my modelshop...

For asphalt I usually run pink front and blue rear, unless the track really heats up, where I would move to gold and silver. I personally wouldnt recommend going any stiffer than that.

The parts you'll need to make a Hara edition diff would be:-

HB61050 39 Tooth Thin Pulley Cyclone (Ball Differential)
HB61332 Aluminium Diff Cup Joint Set Cyclone

Everything else is the same as the normal Cyclone diff.

Hope this helps,
