Questions??

Can any of you team guys that have presumably used the new-configuration clutch clue us in to its advantage over the traditional centax-style clutch?

There are some advantages I did not see at the 1st time

- the flyweights do not have to move over the pins of the flywheel, they only have to rotate which makes the movement faster due less friction.
- the movement is in a straight line of the force and not in an 45 degree angle wicht does give 1.4x more force in the clucth system.
- there is less weight on the outside of the flywheel.

All advantages is giving a faster responding clutch with which you should be able to set an higher engaging point.

I also didn't take into account the weights only moving on one plane.

Are these just the stiffer parts that were talked about during the worlds?

The eyelet at the end of the camber rod is thicker and the upper arm is a little thinner to fit the thicker eyelet in .

I have used the new clutch and the new design is better . I think the other companys will come out with the same design .

NO, those parts were molded from a much more ridged plastic from the existing molds. They had every plastic part on the car in the stiffer formula.
There seems to be some uncertainty if we will ever see them again...

For what it's worth,they did add little humps on the top and bottom side of the arm where the eyelet goes. When the turn buckle is screwed into the eyelet there is a greater amount of expansion which produces more of a force fit into the arm.

Correct... its a MSE release only although Mugen dist. in other regions can purchase them but i don't believe it is cost effective.
