I'm pretty sure that the new diff nut and bolt that the Hara Edition Pro 4 comes with, and also the Cyclone contains the original Pro 4 bolt, and just a new heavy duty nut.

Becasue on American track we usually have very hard boards either 2x4's or pvc pipe. Also from what I hear traction is usually higher in the US making hits on the boards more intense, especially on carpet.

hello all,

i just received my cyclone in the mail yesterday and started buildign it up last night.

so far so good

i was wondering where i can find some sexy addons for it. the more purple the better.

its just for drifting so im in need for alot more bling, the black stealth look is nice, but it needs some more flash

cheers

try Tower, Speedtech, Allspeed Hobbies.
you can start by replacing the shock caps and collars with the ones from the Pro4. they provide a better seal than the stock black ones. Purple servo mounts are also available.
Purple aluminum front body post and clip on motor heatsink you can get from Integy.
Ti Screws... I used the ones packaged from Yok. BD. enough to do the whole car with plenty of extra screws left over.

I am still testing the car and something has gone wrong on the direct pulley the screw comes loose do you guyes also have an problem with that ? and yes i got the pro4 shock caps to and de collars and a battery bar.
And i am the first one in holland to get de cyclone i ordered from speedtech but here in the us it's quite populair i think it's going to be very expensive in holland and europe but no one wants to order from the us because of taxes and stuff. So every wone wants to touch the new car here in holland

Sorry , Hollowman, I know a guy who ordered it from HK. He got it on 17th last month. He has driven the car many times already.

Rc-Zombies are your laptimes better with the Cyclone than your Pro4. What other handling characteristics differ between the two. What other good things have you found with the cyclone

for all the guys who have raced the cyclone does this happen?

or how can u stop it?
There are 2 ways to fix it:

1. Dont hit things and they won't break.
2. Make your own.

Or you could see if Hudy ones fit.

won't get a chance to race it til end of the month... outdoor season is winding down. that will probably be the last time to get to race outdoors.
and my driving still sucks... those pesky boards still get in my way... from the testing I've done...the cyclone is easier to drive. easier to maintain, easier diff access. I have Hara's base asphalt set-up on it right now... and car is just on rails.... alot faster cornering speed.
