Default Parking Lot set-up

Chicky,

I ran your parking lot set-up this weekend on our local track that has seen better days.....man, that car ran great!

I can't thank you enough for all the help.

Keep up the good work.

T-bodz, what up dude? Eric here from Kansas City, you know the guy that ran the Delta at the pro series last year in Blue Springs, Mo. Yeah, I have moved over to a Mugen now.

Default clutch

What's the advantage of this 3 shoe clutch? The 4 shoe clutch by mugen has been one of the most consistent and reliable clutches in 1/8th scale on road.

-rumour mode on-

the "push" type of flyweights might give the Ninja engines more bottom punch.....

-rumour mode off-

With the 4-shoe clutch in a same configuration it will act the same but no one ever did take care to give it a try or did take it in production.

But the 3-shoe will give a better pressure balance of the clutchshoe against the clutchbell.

just wondering
the 3 shoe weights are captured on the pin right? does this
mean that you can now use more gap without fearing of blowing
the weights?

Probably not, but not sure. It may just create a propellor out of your clutch if the gap is too big.

May not want to increase the gap, as much as "lighten" the flyweights. Since they're pinned, you can either drill a hole or shave a little off the length, which ultimately creates a higher rev prior to moving the spring/clutch.

I won't buy that.

I still believe 4 clutch weights are the best and most reliable system than 3-shoe type.

The reason to change clutch weight & flywheel I think 3-shoe type are cheaper and simpler to produce.
