Default M2C Adjustable Flywheel Kit

We are pleased to announce the release of our variable weight 4 shoe flywheel. With the different engines and lighter vehicles, we have found that one weight flywheel does not fit all applications. This model allows you to adjust the weight of the flywheel by 6 grams by adding the 4mm set screws. What this does is allows the motor to spool up at different speeds to help control tire spin. The formula is simple the looser the track the more weight you add. Screws may be installed or removed trackside without removing the engine from the car. This ease of adjustment gives the user the ability to instantly tune to track conditions giving you the competitive edge over the competition. Included in the kit are:
1 ea. Flywheel
1 ea. Clutch nut
1 ea. Collet
1 ea. Clutch spring tool
4 ea. Reg. Soft clutch shoes
4 ea. .90 springs
4 ea. .95 springs
4 ea. 1.0 springs
4 ea. 1.05 springs
1 ea. Bag of 4mm screws (not pictured)

A long ball end driver is the way to go. It's pretty easy to get to them. They are accessed from the BACKSIDE of the flywheel which on most vehicles is very easy to get to. Most other forms of motor sports use flywheel weight to control power and make it more tractable. We've already seen the benefit of heavier flywheels in our r/c cars, but until now it's been either heavy or light. I've been running this for a couple months now, and it's made my stock Vspec feel much more linear. I am however looking forward to running the JS engines designed by Ed Bridges! Ed's the man. Anyway, by reducing the wheel spin my tires last longer and my mileage has increased. I really can't say that I'd change anything with this kit. Mitch really knocked it out of the park with this one.

I have been looking at getting one of this companies setups to get away from my losi flywheel, just because the 4 screws on a lisi are a pain in the ***. Which one do I need? the losi has a tight fit byt he center diff.

Guys this is the way to go, I got the chance to prototype this product and it dropped 3 seconds on fastlap times compared to a stock fly wheel. Look for increased acceleration because it's noticable.

One for both (#6027) I started with 2-.90 and 2-.95 springs and 8 screws installed in the flywheel on my MBX6 buggy with 13/46 (stock) gearing, and it was money right off the bat. The extra inertia really makes the motor idle like a dream too.
Hey, Josh!
