If I were to leave it as is and the wheels rub the body mount, is that ok or no? I imagine of course its not ok, but how bad would it be?

its bad every time u turn or hit a bump they rub, its like hitting the brakes when it rubs so on a turn it will cause u to slide out.

Contratulations to Robert and Mugen for a dominant performance on the bigest stage.

seems to be a lot of people asking about this for some reason...here is what I do.

slide the flywheel collet over the crank nose and push it back against the front bearing...put the crank bolt in the front of the crankshaft so you have something to pull on...leave it out a couple of threads.....get a skinny bladed flat screwdriver and get it in the slot of the collet enough to open it just a hair and push it back against the front bearing while pulling forward on the crankshaft. You have to get that collet all the way tight against the bearing or once its all together your crank will "walk" while running.

Make sure you dont go bumping the nose of the crank while putting the flywheel or clutchnut on or it may slide back into the collet a hair and ya start all over.

If all that gets to be a total cluster $uck you can pull the rear cover off the motor (making sure the piston is all the way up top first) and literally push on the back of the crankshaft while wiggling the collet on.

Some crank walk is okay..a lot is no bueno...if you pull the rear cover and you see big swirls on the inside of the cover then it's walked enough for it to rub the backplate...no bueno..don't confuse the factory hone marks with rub marks...they look fairly similar..

i feel Dario and capricorn were going to upset that dominance if it hadnt rained.

But i congratulate Robert, mugen , and Hara for his amazing first 8th scale race.

I am a complete newb to nitro, so I have no idea whats going on. here is a picture of my engine. I have already installed the 3 show clutch over the flywheel. the Mugen flywheel goes first and then the Flywheel nut, correct? Am I missing something here?

I might be able to make less wiggle room if I add more shims at the end...

yeah I was going to say I didn't see the collet in the picture anywhere...just make sure you are pulling outward on the crank when you wiggle that collet up against the front bearing and make sure it stays snug as you put the flywheel and flywheel nut on.

Done and Done! Its perfect and Snug! Thanks Bill!!!

Another question, I have to bend the throttle linkage? how much and towards which direction? out away from the car? The throttle and braking seem to be OK but I hear the servo working even when I don't touch my radio.

digi servos are noisy at times, especially the cheaper ones, what brand/model servo is giving you a problem?
