I had a pretty rough week. I had bearing issues with my engines because of the bearings I used. I ended up wiping out my first engine on the first day of practice, wiped out my second engine on the second day of practice. Tried to rig a engine together with parts I had, tried breaking it in early in the morning which caused me to miss the first qualifier and got docked a lap on my best run because I accidentally missed corner marshaling when I was running the engine in...
That engine ended up popping because of bearing material going through it. I'm thankful that I was loaned a reds racing motor (which ran amazing and was very very fast). Also it had an xray clutch on it and it dropped right into the car. I couldn't have been happier with it and I can't be more than thankful to the reds racing team.
Anyways I struggled from all the stress and finally got a decent run on the 6th qualifier. I ended up 2nd in the 1/4 semi finals. I went back to the hotel and went through the entire car and found the pin in the 2 speed had worn through the pads and some other small issues. I went out and practiced and the car felt amazing. I felt extremely confident in the car and didn't have a doubt that I would bump in the mains. The mains came along and I was in second place and I was coming up on 1st. I was pushing the car hard and tried to cut the sweeper too short, I clipped it and broke the servo saver in the car. It was a rough week and I can't believe I clipped the corner in the main.

The center adapter has a lot of play/movement. Shifting seems inconsistent also.
Can another brand 2spd clutch work in the car, if so which brand ?
The only issue I have had is with the pin sliding into the clutch. This has only happened twice in the last 7-8 months I have had the car. The MTX5 clutch assembly will fit right in, though I had the same problem with it.
