Well guys I achieved it again today. Low rpm clutch engagement. I really wouldnt call it low rpm , but for the r40. Its good.
The thing is , ive had this deal before. If its anything like my last clutch dialing that got low rpm. Itll be weird at the end of next sundays race.
As well its doing the same thing. Itll roll the wheels a little bit if the idle is set perfectly low. So im a little worried about dragging....and im sure its probably like .1 gap.
The thing I did this time was I took the clutch adjustment screw basically all the way out. Before it was darn close to th end , now its almost like a hair or two left to thread out.
I guess if your looking for low-end engagement. Dont even play around. Just take that screw almost all the way out. Then I placed a thin washer on top to help reduce drag. As well im back to the grey disc and I made sure everything can move around smoothly.
The problem though with me giving you guys an extra solution is I did two things at once. I took the screw all the way out this time. But beforehand I took the black spring and worked it for awhile to try and hope it would loosen up some. Set it on the ground and kinda bounced on it for a little.
This might have helped reduce its tightness. But between those two I got it...its just a little to close for comfort with the dragging at idle. Allthough I can get it to not roll anything I know its just right there.
But anyways wanted to share my deal. Pretty happy , everything on the car is finally coming together. Spool now , motor is brand new moded and ready to take names after todays tuning. Got a new pipe to replace the rdlogic for the meantime. Still have the CVEC waiting in the stable for when I get to test this motors power at the track so I can do a good comparison.
Got the right plug for the motor , its the same I started the break-in on and looks great , got the right fuel , got my tires trued and now ive got the car completely equaled out , got a new ultra fast , ultra lightweight servo then tonight im going to tweak it one last time and hopefully represent the r40 right next race.
