Doesn't this belong in your personal thread

You need to get yourself a Losi or Dynamite clutch tool.

How stiff are the springs you're trying to get on?

sorry. The springs a VERY stiff. they are racers edge 1.0, with a new racers edge 13t clutch bell. This is like my fourth pair of springs to get on (the rest were mugens) and they are harder then the mugens by a good bit. I don't have a clutch tool. Never had to have one, just a screwdriver. There isn't any tricks or anything?? Can i just bend some of the spring out of it???

I wouldn't bend them, it could cause your clutch shoes to drag on the bell at idle.

Racers edge springs have a lot more angle to them than Mugen. This makes them much harder to install and they seem to engage a bit later. I used them once not much later 2 springs broke.

Do yourself a favor, get Answer R/C Shoes $19 and come with 3 sets of springs .9/1.0/1.1. I run them in my RC8 and get at least a gallon a set.

Spend $40 I think and use the coupon code rctech for 20% off
