gtsum, I have not in 10 years had that happen and I run alot. The outside diamiter of the big end of most collets is about the same size as the O.D. of the inner race of the motors front bearing. They spin togeather unless your fly wheel is loose. If the collet is warn from the flywheel coming loose it usually is worn on the outside of the collet or the inside of the flywheel (or both). I will use a shim there if the collet is worn to the point that it is sinking into the flywheel too far but I normally will just get a new collet (or flywheel depending on what is worn). I'm not saying that it is a bad practice to put a washer/shim there. I'm just saying that it is usually not required.

Hi everybody,
Ran my 8ight for the first time today and have a little question/issue about it.
The thing concerns rear inner pin plastic holders. After some practice for a couple for hours i noticed that it became deformed and unmounted from the alu plate at the end. Back ant home dissambled it and found out that the inner pinds pushed the ends of the plastic holder back, the pins (on both sides) were out about 2-3mm. Is it a common problem, should i ignore it or i pushed it a little bit too hard ?

Thank you
By the way - the clutch shoes already worned out

Today i'll be racing in ligh rain, it gets only more interesting
And the clutch was the stock one, put everything by the manual and wanted to give it a shot, 1/4 of a gallon maybe and out of business. Been driving a werks, changed the bearings and didn't knew what clutch shoe wear is for a whole season, too bad it doesn't fit
Now i installed king headz shoes, will see how they work.

you must lube your clutch bearings when you first build the buggy with a good quality bearing oil, they will last twice as long.

it is also wise to maintain your bearings & clutch either after or before each race meet.

Nope, the RTR comes with only the long ackerman.
