Default clutch!?

Hello

Ive owned nitros for a few years and ive never had this problem

I ran it around my back yard for about a minute (i had music playing so thats pretty accurate) and i new it was a little rich because it bogged while the gas was put on, then if taken off it worked back to normal idle. but the problem was is that it died (no suprise) then there was smoke coming out of the pipee (normal) but i saw what looked like to be smoke coming out of the clutch bell? can shoes burn that bad to smoke?

did the smoke smell like burnt plastic?

Ive never ran plastic shoes.. but I assume they dont work very good.

take a look at the inside of your clutch and clutch shoes, do they look burnt?

No, I was just asking some normal questions.

I would look at the whole clutch first, then maybe the bearing behind the flywheel?

Another possibility, if you were running in the back yard some moisture from the grass or dirt could have got on the bell and been burning off.

Probably just oil burning off, I don't lube my clutch bearings, they just sling off the oil and gets all over the shoes, at a buck apeice I just change them. I soak them ivernight in naptha first to get out the oil.
