Since this thread is all about halo, I decided to put my review/comparison between Hybrid Suicide Shell and Powerlyte Cranium Shell here.




These are a Red Camo Powerlyte Cranium Shell ($36.95) and a White Hybrid Suicide Shell ($50).


Cranium Shell comes with a clear back plate and magnetic lid. As for the magnetic lid, it's very secure and only one finger can pop it up. However, you will have to use some tapes in order to fit Speedfeed on Cranium.



As you can see from pictures, the bottom part of Cranium is molded as one piece while the Suicide has two pieces as same as halo stock shell. The another nice feature is the tray. You just remove two screws at the bottom (Suicide has five screws) to take the tray off in order to reach the halo engine. It's a huge advantage from Cranium especially when you get hit at the front of your hopper, it's such a pain to take apart the whole thing at night after your game day (you can skip this part if you have never cleaned your hopper though).





One more cool feature ! You can install your board and back plate without damage. Well, pictures can tell you everything.


Finally this picture shows everything you will get from Powerlyte. Please note that the camo pattern is printed with clear layer on the Cranium Shell which some damages on color are found around the neck after field tests. I'd say Cranium Shell wins this round because not only Cranium Shell has more cool features than Suicide Shell, but also less expensive.

Hope you guys enjoy my review.

RyGy1124v - I have and it will run at about 42 with custom made motor, over that and you will make one hell of a blender. I lwould say not to do every mod in this thread, instead use only the power dash motor, bone, new delrin cone and blue botton mod.

hiakungfu - very very pimp my friend I think ill add that.

Questions for the GODS of Halos.

1. I was told that I could take the 6 AA battery harness out and plug in one 9 volt. I tried and my halo works but it seems to stop every minute and flash those damn jam lights. If I turn it off shake it and turn it back on it will run for a while and stop again (annoying as hell). Could the battery situation be doing this? If not what? I took the spring out because someone said it might help. It is a fresh 9 volt but only one. I'm new so sorry if I am a moron.

2. With the ghetto speedfeed (disposal splash guard) Once it is on do you have to glue it or not. I just made it and it seems that if I push the pod in too hard the speedfeed folds over.

Thanks and I praise you GODS of the Halos!!

1. One 9 volt is not enough power to run your halo. You either need a dual 9 volt mod or a bone pack or just use the stock one.

2. You shouldn't need to glue it in.If you put it in with it domeing out it should stay

One 9v doesnt have enough mAH to power a halo for long at all. Just get a bone.

m_dogg you are correct about not doing to much on the halo. i did the xmod, s4 kit, bone, speedwheel, 1k ohm staple.. mmmm, i think that was it. anyways it was too much, i found that out today that its not good to improve all for speed. though i never had any problems and i was playing great today with cheap paint and no ball break in a hopper. but tomorrow ill play without the staple mod.

never use the staple mod. It fries boards and doesn't give that much more speed compared to the cheap upgrades you can do right now on the halo.

Power Dash is better and cheaper. Higher RPMs and Torque. Oh and its not as unstable as an Xmods motor.

Combine it with a speedwheel and bone yes but then just get the 3 paddle hotrod and your good to go. I always keep mine on setting 1 and its still faster than a setting 6 for a stock.

How important is the tension spring inside the spinning wheel? Do I really need it ?
Also how about the little spring sitting on the blue shell inside the hopper?

if you use 1k ohms if wont fry your board. it only adds little increase of speed on top of xmod. but it does take some battery power like 3 1/2 case. i was already at 8.1 bolt left on the bone.

power dash more stable than xmod? my xmod is pretty stable together with the speed wheel.
