Default Different flywheels?

I have a Tamiya 801x and have been having the pins on the stock flywheel pull out to the point where it's hitting the clutchbell. well 3 flywheels and all the same issues so I'm going to either get a whole new clutch set up or just get a different brand flywheel and use the rest of my Tamiya shoes and springs up since I have about 4 sets left. So my question is can I use a kyosho flywheel or rc8t flywheel with my Tamiya shoes/springs/clutchnut?

Default well

I tried to look up the flywheel to look at it, but a main didn't have it, so I'm going to guess. Kyosho flywheels are made to sit close to the engine and prob won't fit just right. It seems the mugen flywheel fits just about everything. It works great with the mugen carbon shoes and 1.0 springs. Or you could use an xray flywheel and mugen shoes and springs....they are a more universal design than some others....Good luck...

I'll just ask in the Tamiya thread n see if anyone has it figured out yet since it's a grey area.

if its like a kyosho, then i would suggest looking at the hot bodies. much cheaper, and ive been running on the same one for almost a year.

Default Flywheel

Throw a Mugen or Kyosho flywheel on there. You will just have to look at the spacing from where the shoes go on and where the flywheel is setting. You want to make sure it will shim up to your spur gear right. Don't buy Hot bodies anything. They are very cheap made.

Right! Why does everyone equate a low price to poor manufacturing. I've never had any problems with my flywheel or any other part for that matter. Just normal wear and tear items. and the drive train is bulletproof. sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread, I'm sure you'd be happy w/ a HB D8 flywheel.

Low cost does not equal low quality. high cost does not equal high quality.

Look at diego's titanium con rod. High cost, zero quality.
