Now on the CB you do have to shim it properly.
The Losi HD bearings for the clutch have not been good to me. Someone told me that I would have problems. I tried them anyway. The seals always fall out of the rear clutch bell bearing. Sure enough after a race I checked them and the seals were removed.

I wonder why this is happening. The regular losi clutch bearings dont have the same problem.

But they are no where near the quality of mugen bearings. But they are 3 bucks a pop. But at this point i don't care anymore.

I am going to try tko.

ETA i took the name of the bearings i was using out. It's not fair to the company
Answer's bearings are very good. http://answer-rcusa.com/zencart/

Also you can't go wrong with TKO's for the clutch.

Man I have been running them all year without issues. I tried everything from fioroni to the new TKO special, protek, avid and the Losi HD clutch bearings have been the best. I usually take them out after each race day and run them through the RPM bearing blaster and re-oil them and they spin super free. Not sure what issue you are having?
