Have any of you guys ran the reds clutch with your mp9 ? I Like the feel of the kyosho clutch but i dont like dealing with the springs when i want to pull the clutch off. If you have ran the Reds clutch what setup did you use ?

What you need is the Reckward Tuning Speed 2.5
The entire clutch unit comes off in one unit, like a nut if you understand.
They cost a lot, but if you buy separate units for the front (separate from flywheel) you could have three clutches in your toolbox, and swap them out in 30 seconds.. you'd have for example one with aluminum installed, one extra with carbon shoes, one with some soft springs, and one with for example 1-2 carbon and 1-2 aluminum split, and just swap them out real quick.
That's what I do makes life a whole lot easier.

Tried the CsI blue pistons this weekend. Results were great. I had more steering than I knew what to do with and it soaked up landings like no other.

Just some info if anyone was thinking about trying them.

Is this kit pretty good right out of the box or does it require quite a bit more parts to get it where it needs to be?

I never tried the kit pistons but the 1.3 x 8 hole piston is what a lot of guys are running. and that is the only thing major to change other than the alum front spindle carries, that give alittle more steering. you don't have to buy them. for the buggy to turn.

Just ordered a set of the V2 blues. What fluids and springs are you using with them?

I've run my buggy hard for about 4 gallons and not had any issue with front drive cups or dogbones popping out. Buggy has been golden. I did encounter the flex. That caused the clutchbell to rub the chassis and wear and a bent rear stiffener. Drilled the chassis and all is well again.

Mugen 550F/500R
Ended up with the usual light blue front orange rear for spring.

I think it could have been a hair stiffer for the track I was on but I wasnt feeling up to changing out the fluid at the track.

The track I was on is super smooth, technical, and traction was WAY up.
