there should be a review soon on this website.. and it sounds like paco is selling it also.. just shoot an e-mail to him.. but, like I said.. don't waist your money unless you are confident that will help you...

I to like the stock clutch shoes, but they burn up my springs and bells faster than usual. I have a clutch bell right now that is half blue, and my bearings are just about done after a 30 minute main.

tell you what... I'll explain to you how to prep your bearings the way I do... If you follow it exactly.. you should have good luck...

first of all start with a new bell and bearings... preferably a whole new setup considering I don't know the condition of your equipment... if your bearings fit in your bell snug.. you shouldn't need to replace it.. if your shoes have plenty of contact to them.. they are ok.. replace the springs regardless.. clean the shoes, flywheel, and endbell well with denatured alchohol...

ok.. get an RPM bearing blaster $8... take your inner bearing.. pop the seals off if it is rubber sealed (what I use), or if you use steal it will work but is a little harder to clean.. and spray them very well with something like nitro blast.. kinwald spray.. or 3M carb or brake cleaner.. no other brands because they leave a residue... clean very very well spin on a tip of a screwdriver and blow out with light air.... apply one drop (I do mean one) of trinity royal oil or mobil 1 sythetic 5w engine oil... spin well to work in.. reinstall the seals if you have rubber seals... clean the outside of the bearing with denatured alchohol.. install in inner part of clutch bell... run one tank.. remove clutch bell and bearings and clean grease etc.. on bearings and bell with denatured alchohol and reinstall.. should be good for a few gallons after that... and your parts will not overheat and performance won't fade.. will save youm lots of money...

go to www.avidrc.com for a good price on bearings.. david joor is the man and helping the industry out... giving good deals a quick shipping...

good luck and follow closely

it shouldn't be any different than the previous kanai.. or the one before that.. not too many valuable hop ups.. some clutch stuff.. little a-arm stuff.. ti parts.. not worth changing IMO
