Wonder if this is a hint to the colour of the WC Edition?

Thoses are Cyclone-S spec bulkheads

The diffs are too wide for the pro4. To use a pro4 spool and diff in my cyclone I used nealry 3 packs of shims to make up the space different.

I think you may be better off just to buying a cyclone you won't regret it

Oh I am, trust me. I love my Pro 4 and it kills nitros where I race. In an earlier post, I said I was leaning toward buying a Cyclone but wanted to beef up my Pro 4 in the interim. After seeing the pics after the worlds and IIC, I'd have to be an idiot not to. I wanna share war stories too......

Here's mine. I put Cyan's back on the front and loosened up the droop screws a tad to 1.5mm/2.0mm(F/R) of droop. Otherwise, the setup's the same as I posted earlier. I wanna stiffen up the springs and try it now. Maybe 33/25 or 33/28.

Does anyone have a part number (black)?
Can anyone verify that reinforced bulkheads are now included in the black cyclone?

Jet Racing bulkhead is only half as reinforced as the HPI parts. If you look carefully you will see that the reinforcement area is only about 1/2 as thick as HPI

does hpi really make reinforced black bulkheads?

I have a rough translation that we (HPI USA) had requested from HPI Japan. We're in the process of going over it and re-arranging some of the sentences, checking grammar etc. We're also trying to add something about the newer parts etc. I'll post a link as soon we're finished and have it posted, probably on to the HB site.

Thanks,

AndyH
