The Hara and Surikarn Editions already come with aluminium spring perches so I would have thought it would be likely to be on the WC Edition too.

Theoretically they could include the graphite bumper brace, but that seems unlikey, for the same reasons they wouldnt include the heatsink brace...to sell them as hopups. On this note they should include the aluminum spring perch's, 50 o-rings, and gold shock shafts.

Heres to dreaming
Hi,

I am about buying one Cyclone, but it can be The coming WC or one of the first batch, with thousands of tune ups.
Can you please introduce me to the important tune ups that are to consider to the very first Cyclone?

What was the difference between the Hara and Surikarn edition??

thanks in advance

Pedro

In this case the one-way pulley just lets the belt keep spinning. With a locked center pulley and oneway, when you let off the trigger the front belt slows down to match the center shaft speed. With a center one-way that belt can continue spinning at the same speed as the front one-way unit (so long as that speed is faster than the center shaft speed, at which point the pulley locks). furthermore because the one-way housing is spinning closer to the speed of the tires, the front-oneway bearings are seeing lower relative speeds.

basically it can save the motor from having to accelerate the front belt and one-way housing under a lot of conditions.
