I have a set of the square titanium universals for my pro 4 and they were pretty solid. At the time i couldnt afford to buy the axles and the cross joints.

yes! 18T way too tight! the 17T is a little tight even with the main pulley at it's loosest position.. I think eventually with the 17t.. the belts should start to loosen up after several runs..
with the 17T the transmission ratio changes to 2.2941 : 1

I will try the 18T with a smaller 36T pulley from my old Pro3 and will have a 2.0:1 ratio.

If HB does release a 18T pulley..hope they have new belts to go with them.

I am looking for a place that has the P-Dub bumper and the hardened V2 universals and V3 spool in stock. Anyone know of a place. The sites that I have gone to have one or the other or do not say what their stock status is.

you may find yokomo bd belts may fit as they wrap around a 20t centre pully and 40t diff pully i havent tried this but it would sound about right also a had cyclone belts on my 415 with an 18t center pully and 36t diff pullys that was spot on then i saw the light and bought the rest of the car

Default Front arm sweep

Wondering what other Cyclone owners think about front arm sweep. Overall, it's felt to me like the 2.5 degree block the kit comes with provides a lot of steering, almost to the point of destabilizing the car. I usually seem to end up running with 1 or 0 degrees (either with the spool or one way). Of course, I've seen others run successfully with the 2.5 degree block. Thoughts? Thanks.

The 2.5 degree suspension block was the first thing I changed on my HB. Steering was way too aggresive. I now have 1.0 degree block mounted and it's running much smoother! You could also try a 1.5 degree block. I have the one way installed because I run stock class. (19t element with 5 cells)

I found a source for the OEM belts that HB uses..
I'm getting prices and availability for longer belts to
fit the 18T Pulley/39T diffs.
might be awhile before we see HB parts in the US. and I do not
want to wait..

I know the Pro3 172T Low friction belt will fit the front.
it's the rear belt I can't find..stock is 62T. need like a 65T

soon as I find out more on the belts.. let you all know.

I'm building my Cyclone with SS10.5 Novak combo and was wondering what spur and pinion do you guys would recommand for rubber carpet, large track.

Thanks.

EDIT: Would a 108T and 48T mesh correctly on the black Cyclone with original bulkheads?
