Hey all, I just tried the Oval air filter setup and I can definitely feel a difference. I highly suggest picking one of these up.

Went to your website to order 2 sets of shoes for my Kyosho ST-RR but they are all sold out. Any idea when they'll be back in stock again? Would also like to get a 14 tooth clutch bell, but out as well? Getting ready for race season...

13/14 bells and the three shoe you need are inbound from the UK. I should have them by early next week.

Thanks!

Thanks Mike! Can I order them online now and just have you ship them upon arrival, or should I wait? Also will you have any 12 tooth clutch bells available? Are your bells vented or not? Thanks for answering (no pun intended) all my questions Mike!

12T! Are you setting up a R/C tractor puller? I will check on 12 but honestly don't think its in the plans. We are working towards 16T and Losi bells. They're not vented. I will make the order live on the site around 10PM EST tonight so I will ship early next week.

Thanks!

That's funny...no tractor, just looking to get a bit quicker acceleration on a small track. I can accomplish the same by adjusting the spur gear so no worries. Does the venting of the clutch bell really make any appreciable difference or not? I'm fairly new to this nitro stuff so I'm still learning all the time. When I start running on some larger tracks and need more top end speed is it better to adjust the clutch bell or spur gear, and will changing the bell affect the gear mesh? I'll be on your site early tomorrow morning to place my orders, thanks Mike!!

For the venting question please see this thread:
Vented Clutch Bell Discussion

For the quicker acceleration I would look other places then gearing to be honest. One tooth down at 12T in percentage is alot. You can get quite a bit out of the clutch. You might also want to research what pipe combo for your motor will give you more bottom end.

Thanks!

Interesting reading Mike, thanks! Bottom line...like all other threads in here everyone has their own opinion and there seems to be no clear-cut winner...go figure. I intend to experiment with your springs to get me that extra acceleration I'm looking for, and I've also tried a few pipe combos as well. What's your take on the gear mesh / motor alignment...does it change much by going up 1 tooth? Thanks for answering all my questions, you've been very helpful!

Yes, you need to set mesh if you change your gearing and unless you have a quick change motor mount needs to be done every time you remove the engine.

All clutch shoes and 13/14t bells are now in stock.

Thanks

Mike, I see that Answer RC now offers carbon composite shoes. When would you recommend using these compared to the aluminum ones, and will there be a significant difference in their feel on my truggy? One last question, do you mount them leading or trailing and does it make any difference? Thanks!

Yes composites just came out and I only got a limited number so I took couple days to insure the team got first shot at them. They are now listed below but won't last long. Your truggy will still probably do better with the 7075 shoes. As for mounting them leading or trailing...(I might be confused here) in this case just make sure the 'Answer' writing is on the outside where you can see and that should be correct.... I think.
