the gap and tool
Well recently i had my clutch professiona set, and it did not turn out to good.
my car would revive up to high rpms before the clutch would engage. I took to long and it seem like my engine would overheat because of it.
Now I install another engine. its the os .12tg. and its doing the same thing. I engine would get to high rpms before the clutch would engage. I loosen up the spring, and it still goes to a very high rpm. I feel that if I loosen the spring anymore, that it will come off.
Now as far as the clutch gap. I do not fully understand how to use that. I have the caliper to, a digital one, but I do not know how to use it properly. Should I try using a ruler instead.
Also does any other company sell shims that I can use on the clutch. Serpent are hard to could be in fort Lauderdale. So let me know if traxxas or mugen or hpi have the shims, or what size of dimension shims should I be looking for?
Next, if its not the load spring, whatelse you said could be worn? What is the the part number.
Now what the cluth does engage the car goes part fast. but its too fast because the engine has already revied up so high I can not control the car.
If my clutch shoes are worn, how do I close the clutch shoe gap? Where to do I put the shim?
