Would putting 1mm shims on the K mounts also be a way around it? Has anyone tried that before?

Hi Tyson,

I personally have never had problems with the bell rubbing the chassis, I mean it does rub but it doesn't cause any problems that I have seen.

Ok thanks for that feedback mate. I might just leave it for now and keep an eye on it. It doesnt seem to effect the performance at all. well not enough for me to feel it anyway.
thanks for everyones help with this.

I just cut my chassis this passed weekend, I didn't want to cut it either but my home track put some big triples in, and the clutch bell was hitting more. I wouldn't cut a new chassis.
but sometimes I wonder if the king headz long engine mount would help it??

And is this really necessary? I'm not too keen on drilling my chassis but the wear mark is getting bigger.
Wow someone is selling TKI3's again. Nice.
3/8" bit. I drilled my TKI3 chassis a few months ago. No problems. The clutch bearings are so fragile, I'm sure the bell hitting the chassis and tweeking it can only shorten their life span more.

I've run the king headz mount from day one. I haven't had any rubbing except recently. I have 6 gallons on my car with a new chassis around the 4.5 gallon mark and run at fear farm which has some big jumps

I ran for 8 months without drilling a hole. Plenty of rub marks but never a flameout. I use a 12mm stepped drill bit to drill a hole now. But it's more of a backup than anything else

Default clutch bell hitting the chassis if211

I run a ST-RR and don't have the problem of the clutch bell hitting the chassis but I do monitor the MP9 thread just to keep up with what is going on with the Kyosho buggy.

Has anyone tried using the spacer that Kyosho makes to slightly raise the engine height. The part # is if211 (in stock) and it is suppose to fit between the motor mount and the engine. I can't imagine that the very slight raising of the engine would have any significant negative effect on handling.

This spacer may be a quick and easy solution to the clutch bell hitting the chassis problem.

Just last week kanai posted a picture on Facebook with a hole drilled in his chassis. I would think if the man that designed the car is doing it we should follow suit.

I have had several customers bend their crankshafts from their CB hitting the chassis in a Kyosho........... SO if your hitting its best not to leave it IMO.......

I'm having the clutch bell issue rubbing the chassis myself. Ive blown up 2 clutches and 1 spur gear so far. Ive heard the new alluminum transponder holder reduces flex and therefore solves this problem. Im sceptable about this. Does anyone have some insight on this?

It's unlikely that would reduce flex. The options seem to be raise the engine or drill the chassis.

+1.

Last weekend I smoked a spur/clutch bell combo on both my TKI2 and STRR. I'll be drilling holes this weekend. Additionally, I installed some king headz braces (front and rear) and see how I like them. If the braces take away from the cars' overall drive quality, I'll take them off and hope the drilled hole will be enough to prevent blown spurs, clutch bells, and engine shut offs...

You can drill the hole or run the Agama motor mount which raises the motor a little, we run the Agama mount no more rub. And if you don't do anything you will have a problem eventually.
