Questions?? what size of clutch bell do you think??

I have a RC8 Assoicated and recently put a losi 350-.021 on it, I've been told that my clutch bell/gear is to big for our off road track cant seem to really tune it due to it seens to have more top end tuning than torque for the track which like i said it's is a off road track.
Any set up's out there you use or suggestions

The RC8 came with a 16 tooth CB stock . So going to a 15 to 14 will get you more bottom end . The size of the bell will determine the size of the track . I would get a few sizes and spend a few good laps with each to determine what is best for you .

I run a 14T CB on my Buggy at our wide open off road track and it goes just fine ;-)

yes. some engines need that. ones with high top end speed and no bottom need to go down a couple of teeth on the clutch bell or buy an Dynamite 007 (high torque) pipe, but its way cheaper to buy 2-3 clutch bells first.

my engine i have in a buggy needs to go up a tooth or two because it has tons of bottom.

by the way, do you live in georgia? just asking because someone on the georgia rc forum website has the exact same user name lol
