As for your clutch setup, I would say its buggy dependent.

i run 2 carbon shoes 1.0mm springs, and 1 aluminum shoe, 1.1mm springs. Lots of punch still but not as insane as an all aluminum setup. The engine has load of low end so this smooths it out.
Hey Cain:

Can you share with us the part numbers and where we can purchase your setup at?

Thanks,

Manny

My stuff was a combination of various parted out items I purchased. my Clutch shoes both aluminum and carbon are from CEN. The Matrix RTR comes with carbons.

As for springs, the 1.0mm come with the Matrix RTR, and I also have some from Sportwerks, and the 1.1mm I am using is also from CEN.

You can also do Mugens as well. Since I have no LHS here, I just by from ebay or those that part out.

I ran 4 tanks through it yet, but I had to stop because I noticed my center diff was leaking. Have to order more diff fluids, thank goodness fluid is not on backorder. LOL

This engine is great for the price you pay for it. Especially, now that you can get a rebate on it, plus if you purchase it at Tower you take a discount and free shipping if you are a member.

I put another tank yesterday(total of 5 tanks) and this coming Sunday I will put several more tanks through it because of the race.

Looking good so far!!!

Thanks DAN!!!

To confirm to make sure I doing this right, the low end needle is the one on the opposite end from the top end needle on the sliding part of the carb? Its not the very little needle on lower end of the carb right?

How do I find out more about this rebate?

Cain, it depends on the engine but the small screw on the bottom of the carb is not the low needle on any engine. That is the idle stop screw that determines the gap when the carb is closed (it actually prevents the carb from closing all the way). The low needle on most engines is on the end of the slide. On an RG it's on the oposite side of the carb. I can't remember if the VG is the same or not.

Yes the the low end needle is on the sliding part of the carb.

The high end needle is usually pointing upwards and is physically the largest screw.

The other needle on the lower end of the carb is for idle.

There can also be a third needle opposite the sliding part of the carb, but the O.S. 21 VG does not have one of these.

Tower Hobbies-
Place your order of just $50 or more and for a limited time we'll take $20.00 off the total. All you have to do to claim your savings is use ad number 016D.

Hey Dan, thanks for you input. I notice at the track over the past weekend there was a lot of people running Rocket Science Fuel and I am going to give it a shot.
