just a quick question, i've found the xray clutch does not engage as aggresive as my mtx4r clutch. it does not rev free, then snap on like the mugen, except it engages pritty much straight away.
i've installed a crf spring and kyosho fluwheights which have been drilled out. i also wound down the spring to the point that any more and the clutch does not engage well, yet it still engages too early.
does this mean i need to increase the internal clutch gap between the shoe and the bell?
i have also been getting some pritty bad clutch burn on the shoe
i found that if the current thrust bearing is loaded up too much, it pushes the balls out, and elongates the holes of the balls. This causes the sides of the thrust bearing on the edges that are closest to the balls to hit the inside edges of the clutch bell where the thrust bearing sits in. This then causes inconsistent clutch engagement.
also one of the balls now falls out, meaning the thrust has been exposed to too much force. ( i grease it up each race day).
all these are signs of the clutch not being set up right but i've tried many things (no end play, alot of end play, no clutch shoe gap, heaps of gap, tight spring, loose spring, lgiht weight shoes) yet nothing fixes it.
i am currently running 1.2mm of shims behind the internal bearing
help me out here
i've recently changed the thrus bearing to the mugen one, as i have a feeling that the compressed xray thrust bearing that is hitting the sides of the inside of the clutch bell where the thrust sits is causing issues
i started up the car today, and couldn't get it to keep a consistent idle, and i think this is due to the clutch issues (and the dodgy thrust bearing i was using)
