Well, my throttle servo survived another race weekend. I did have one odd glitch though. In my first heat, about a minute or two into the run, I briefly lost throttle control, and had to watch my runaway car fly in circles. As I walked toward it, it stopped, and worked normally. I went ahead and killed the motor, and took it back to the pits to inspect it. It appeard to function normally. I don't know if it got hung up for a second or what, but it sems to be fine now. I drove it several more times that night with no problems.

So it appears my insulation worked, this is the second longest a throttle servo has survived. I have several practice sessions scheduled before the next race, so I'll have plenty of time to confirm it will live...I'll keep you guys posted.

My Ninja seems to be a good motor so far, I ran a Collari(Werks) for a year and I'm running a Ninja BO-1A now, with a Mugen MSR 1005.

Is that the version that allows you to use regular clutches?

Yes. You can rotate the mounts to allow the engine to move forward.

I'm running a regular clutch-bell but I dont have the KHdz mount, My Dad shimed it out, and it works fine. Had a new bearing go out in a 45min. main at The Farm2 during the Nitro fest.

the king headz mount allows you to pull the motor without having to set the gear mesh every time you service the motor or clutch, also it allows you to run a normal clutch setup by flipping the mounts arround and you dont have to shim the clutch up for it to mesh with the spurr right.

When you guys are running a normal clutch(3 shoe Mugen or Kyosho or whatever) are you using a normal clutch bell or the Losi clutch bell. I am running my old Jammin set up but I could not use a normal CB due to the fact than when the CB is shimmed out to the spur properly the screw that holds the CB on was hitting the fuel tank. So I had to stick with the Losi bell and more expensive bearings. I would prefer to run a normal bell with the 5x10 bearings since I can get them for like 50 cents each.

I am using a Mugen clutch with the Losi bell. The Mugen bell wouldn't reach far enough to mesh properly with the spur. Go to www.avidrc.com for bearings. You can get any bearing in the car for $1.

seems like you guys replace the clutch bearing pretty often? but how often?

this is my first 8th scale so it seems like this is a normal wear and tear item?

I replace mine after a few races, or I did. I'm running a standard bell now so I'll have to see how it does on the 8.

i am running x-ray flywheel with mugen carbon shoes. along with losi bell. the stock losi set up lasted about half a gallon. i have over a gallon thru new set up and i have no noticeable wear. it may be a little softer, but i have twichy trigger finger and it works good for me. i checked it out today in my blacktop driveway, and it leaves black marks from a dead stop... a-main and carolina's both have the inner bearing cheap. from looks of wear, i can easily get another gallon or more out of this set-up for $15 including 1.0 springs
