You really dont need anything. I would get bearings for spares and as far as options maybe sway bars and springs for tuning. The car is damn near indestructable! I have grabbed a few spares here and there but have yet to use any.

I like the 15T Bell on most tracks I've raced on so far. Gives a ton of bottom end punch, if you have the traction for it. Well worth trying IMO. I like the stock shoes & springs setup and I have been getting 1.5 gallons of life out of them. I do like the Max-Life shoes with the stock springs a little better. A little better grip, and a little longer life and zero bell/shoe maintenance. Closer to 2 Gallons too.

Hey guys,

do you know what rate the stock clutch springs are? mediums?

and what other clutch shoes will work with the xray? I would like to try a softer shoe if possible to get more rip off the corner

Xray 1.71 gm silver shoes w/ 1 mm springs work well. I have been using King Headz Mugen black aluminum w/ 1mm springs for med bite. Also try the Carbon Mugen shoes w/.9 mm springs for low bite or loose tracks.

So shoes made for Mugen will work with the Xray?

What will carbon shoes do? Will they "hit" harder?

wear faster?

and would you run all three carbon, or a combo of Aluminum and Carbon?

Yes Mugen shoes fit and work fine

Carbons will slip a little but be sure to get some .9 mm springs for them and yes they wear faster. When trying a new set of Carbons always use a NEW clutch bell. If you use an old one that is roughed up from aluminum shoes, you will wear out the shoes too fast.

I like one or the other. Like I was saying, A rough or gared up clutch bell makes carbons wear out faster. Stick w/ 3 aluminum w/1.00 or 3 carbons w/ .9's

Anyone use the M2C Racing clutch in the 808? What are your thoughts?

Thanks,

Carbon shoes usually wear a great deal longer than aluminum shoes. I have carbon shoes on one of my engines that I have using on various engines since I began running 1/8 4 years ago. The clutch pin holes are ovalizing but the shoes still have plenty of material on the. I have always run carbons and have never acutally worn a set out (thought this first set is about ready to retire ).

I have found that a bell that has been used with alloys can be cleaned out by using a 6mm bolt as a chuck to turn the bell on a drill and some good sand paper (or even a dremel tool with a stone bit) to take off the aluminum deposits. You must get it all cleaned off though, otherwise you will eat those carbon shoes quickly as Dan said.

Thanks,

I haven't run the M2C. However, I did run the Fioroni Turbo Twin Slide this past weekend for the first time and was relatively impressed. Very consistant over the 30min main.

A few questions. Finally got a chance to break in my engine and wanted to clean my car due to all the soot and oil that got all over it. What is the recommended cleaning solution to use?

Also, I am running the OS 2050 pipe and the pipe holder bar that comes with the kit doesnt fit through the hole. Is it safe to drill out the pipe hole a little?

Cant wait to get this thing to the track. Hopefully the weather cooperates this weekend!

We were shipped the aluminum c-hubs in the varying degrees. These should be in tomorrow or the next day.
