Mean no disrespect to our Canadian buddy (Glenn) but perhaps being in a cold country, his interpretation of hot and cold may be relatively different.
I don't know if Malaysia is any less hotter than Oz
but we use yellow shoes with modified / cut flyweights mounted in between the flywheel pin with lots of success.
I think this is the 4th "missing" variation that should have been there in the article.
Centax-3 assembly combination 4
* flyweights: modified / cut and mounted in between the flywheel pins
* spring: hard (909518 Centax II spring)
* clutch shoe: new yellow clutch shoe (802509)
* clutch gap: 0.5 to 0.7mm
* end play: minimal
0.5mm is for smaller and tighter tracks with lesser traction. You may even want to try the stock black clutch shoe (802508). 0.7mm clutch gap for larger tracks and more open with higher traction. I think this is what our Indonesian friends (Pyramid / Goldfinger) are using also.
