Default cyclone parts required

what parts are required to run the hpi front end?

do all existing bd parts fit the hpi hubs, knuckles and c-hubs ?

can someone list the parts required for the conversion.

Also id i wanted to fit HPI wishbones to the car i notice the bd hingepins are thinner, can the HPI/cyclone ones be made to fit?

Is there any other brand diff joint that i can use for the BD? Does those aluminium diff joint from MSX or HB fits? Im running a GTB 3.5 system and the stock plastic diff seems to slip after a few runs.

why not just buy a cyclone instead of converting a bd to it by using all of the suspension components but stiill with having the problem of it tweaking all the time...

Hi,

@Barry: The Tamiya diff should fit with little modification. Mine is arriving in a few hours.

Cheers
Chris

Fitting the arms, hubs etc from the Pro4/Cyclone isn't a straight forward swap. You will need drive line parts from 3 cars to get it right as well as all the hardware etc. The hinge pin fix is not that hard though.

Dear Yokomo Lovers....I am in desperate need of a Yokomo Motor Mate....

I would prefer a new one.....if someone points me in the right direction to find one.....I will send them a FREE team br00d racing IB 6 cell pack....

I am interested in a used one possibly, but no finder fee.....though I will trade well for it....

And I have already checked all the Major website, including Yokomo.....nobody has one,.....so we are going to have to find this at a local hobby shop...

Later EddieO

The alu (or whatever material they are, not plastic ) outdrives that are in use by the likes of Masami are not Tamiya. They are off the old MR4, if you look closely there is like a guard on the end of the outdrive so that no snap ring is needed, and I don't think this is part of the Tamiya one?
