Check it out on our website... limited initial quantity.

Also there should be no more grinding of chassies in order for the flywheel to contact the starter box wheel.

Hard to say...was a bit disappointed it came with a 34mm fly wheel, was hopping they will come up with a 36mm set up so I don't need to touch the chassis....

Joho,

The new Ascendancy Clutch is 36mm and you should not need to grind the chassie.

Great! I follow the link and check the website, it still said 34mm there, hence my comment. Been waiting for a set of 4 shoes clutch for the 408!!

Joho,

If you look under ascendancy products on top of the page. Then click on Effortless Clutch on the right side of the page you will see the very first one is 36mm. These are now in stock and ready to ship. But quantity is limited.

Here are some detailed pics of the Billy Fisher mod, I ran this setup again this past weekend and it did very well, I put a lot of steering back into the buggy and it was very good, rear was not lose, I could throw the buggy into a corner and get on the gas as early as I wanted to and it would pull nice and straight. I tried a similar setup when i first built the buggy and it was all over the place. This setup was night and day, couldn't be happier, time to get ready for RD 1 of the NC State series this weekend.

Frank, yes, did only the rear end, don't know of anyone trying the front yet. And the ride height is 27mm front, 30mm rear.
