Will it work okay or will it get burned up?
Just play with grear ratios until you learn the correct ones for the track you're running at, should work fine.

There are too many folks with too many agendas taking the fun (and life) out of the class. Personally, I don't care what brand of tires you run, what brand body you run, or what brand of car you run, just show up to run it and have fun. This class is now more political than 8th scale and 200mm. There are agendas there as well but at least they don't get as personal as they do with GT cars.

I'm running a Werks B5 and really like it alot, It's recommended over the B6 as the B5 has better bottom end torque, if you properly gear, and spring your clutch right you'll have all the power you'll need.

Really? I've heard the B5 lacks a bit of top-end, and I need a screamer up top(local track is huge..) Also, I plan to run an Ascendancy clutch, but am still waiting to hear if this skinny Kyosho clutch-bell will fit over it.. I do like the price of the B5, but have always thought it's more of a truggy engine.. What pipe do you run with it?

Right now it's still a toss-up - Werks B5 or B6, Argus, Alpha A872, or maybe a Go GXR II... So many to choose from, it's kind of ovewhelming...

Jay - The D8T tank is very good and will fit in the K car with very minor mods (front mount hole needs to be relocated slightly). I would much rather run the HB tank than the Kyosho - and it's much cheaper to boot. I love using a clunk - probably because I spend so much of my time upside down in offroad...

Will it?
It won't. I haven't found a wide bell that will cover the Losi-style 4shoe clutches with screw in pins like the Ascendancy - only the traditional style clutches with the pins pressed in the flywheel. The only demand for that type of bell would be for an open IGT car, so I don't think we'll ever see one...

I'm running the werks 2057 in the short (high speed) setting. it's got plenty of top end.

Default Centax style clutch

Is there a Centax style clutch specifically made for 1/8GT? Or do I use just any Centax style clutch from a 1/8 onroad?

You need to choose between that clutch or the new bell with the bigger bearings.
I would use the standard 3 shoe and the bigger bearing bell.

Good luck.

Good luck with the centax, GT cars are a lot heavier than 1/8 scale on-road cars. You'll have better luck with a buggy clutch and heavier springs.
