When ever you guys will decide that you finished spending money on clutch shoes and spend time on working on it, move to Fioroni Turbo sliding clutch!!
By getting it, you will end the torment of working on you clutch all the time.
I ran it last year on my Mugen for an entire season (about 8 gallons) and the only time I opened it was in order to add another spring to it as a setup action.
Anyway, if you do decide to take it you will need the Kyosho flywheel and not the Mugen's because it is to short

So you can flip the stock motor mounts to use a regular clutch? Might have to try that next time I can't seem to get Losi clutch parts...

I have another aftermarket motor mount comming. It's a 4 piece, much like the King Headz version. Once I get some use out of it, and see how I like it, I'll report back what I find.

www.bmainhobbies.com has them(4 in stock). Homer is 1 of the best sources for losi parts to me.

Thanks for the info guys but I am acctually looking for an extended motor mount to reduce chassis flex in the center..... last night my chassis flexed so bad that the center diff mount hit the carb and twisted it in the block!...and that was not in a crash just landing after a big jump. The front and rear braces will not stop the flex in the middle so I think the only answer is an ext. motor mount......any one else have any Ideas?




JBRacing, The fioroni does work great I've been running one in my 8 since day one.

Were you running the aluminum braces? King Headz makes an engine mount that looks to be beefier than stock.

If anything, I think the motor should be moved back a couple mm's. Seems light on the back and left side to me. I am going to add wieght behind the motor.

i think a stronger radio tray that wraps around both sides of the throttle servo would take care of some of that mid-chassis flex. you could always bolt a piece of 1/4" square steel or aluminum stock to the chassis between the 2 chassis braces somewhere that there is room for it.

will it work with the losi clutch bell, or do you have to use a kyosho (or compatable) clutch bell?

Honestly, I didnít tryÖ
My friend, who imports Fioroni to Israel, told me that when he tried to use the Kyosho bell and he had problems with it so he recommended I use their bell and so I did.
Now, when I switched for the MBX5 to the 8ight I bout a whole new, flywheel, clatch and bell.

Has anyone tried to put a jammin z brace in the car. Would that help with the flex in the middle of the chassis. I was wondering if anyone else made aluminum braces for the 8. I would like to run one in the rear to help witht he flex.

King Headz braces should be out this week for the rear.

Take a look at them before you decide on one. They left the nuts in the brace in case you happen to break a screw off. You wont lose the whole part, or have to drill it out.
