I second that. I do it exactly the same way, and have no problem. Also, dont worry about the screw backing out, it doesen't - I've used the same clutch setup for 10+ liters, so prob:-)

Is there anyone not using the stock clutch shoes and springs? My set is wore out and the LHS said they are on back order. Let me know if you would like to sell them....

Does anybody use the Dynamite Ultra Torque starter box for their 8ight? I am getting one from a buddy of mine and was wondering how you like it with this car... I am trading it for my Ofna Chrome top box...It doesn't fit very well as you guys already know.

While looking on Dynamites website I see they make some cheap aluminum clutch shoes for the 8ight. Does anybody have any experience with these?

Thanks,
Aaron

So are those little balls the weights? I thought they are to put the hingepins into? Did you already get them on?

The balls go on the ends of the hingepins. Make sure you get them all the way in the recess holes before you tighten down the plates.
They are not the weights.

I'm using the Dynamite Quick Fire box, it works really well, but theres a few guys here using the Torque Start box also. I think - you should be able to use any narrow-type box with this car, ya just have to make it work I narrowed the wheel on my quickfire box just a little, it will fit up in there, but i took a little off just to be safe. I'm gonna try those shoes as soon as they're in stock.

Anyone looking to try the JDCarbon hinge pins I would think twice about it. I tore my car apart yesterday to clean and check and found one splinter stressed. They are not what the guy says that they are supposed to be I can't even remember taking a hit hard enough to do this...

Use the stock inners and outers or the Lunsford titaniums...
