I personally use the ascendancy RC clutch on my DNX408. I use the steel flywheel version 34mm and it fits perfectly!! THe only thing you have to do, is milling the chassis with a dremel to make the hole a little bit bigger and it's fine!

Talking Fuel Filter fitting

Can someone post a pic of how they have their fuel filter setup? I'm out of ideas trying to fit my body over mine on the left side . It jacks my body up on the left somewhat, making my fuel filler cap rub on the cutout side of the body. I'm trying to avoid making the fuel filling window larger to prevent.

Thanks

I am wanting to try and run some 1.2 shock pistons, does anybody know which ones fit, or if you can buy blank ones from anywhere?

why the 34mm over the 36? Esp if you have to do mods using the 34..

Heres what I ended up with as for fuel filters. It does hit the body a little bit but theres not much room for them. BTW the tank is seriously under capacity with the setup in the pic I measured it out to 123.5cc. Hope this helps.

It helps immensely! I routed on the other side and it just doesn't work. I saw a guy running the splash guard at my club race this last weekend and am thinking of getting one, if not just to connect the filter to it. I haven't measured my capacity yet, but tried to get a one stop 20min main and flamed at 9:30 . No guts, no glory and I'm surely not a pro! Thanks for the response

Thats what I was getting was 9:30 until I put in the fuel filters and now I can pit at 10 mins.

Btw I run the exhaust line around with the fuel line to make it longer. It was too short.

No guts no glory. Now there's a classic

Losi #56 is the equivalant to 1.2 and they do work after enlarging the center hole

Last weekend my throttle servo (7955) stopped responding at the end of a 5 min heat, so i put a brand new (1015) in it's place and two heats later it does the same thing. Both times as soon as i get to the car they start working again. So i believe they are getting too hot. Anyone else having this problem or know how to fix it? I do have some Losi heat tape on the part of the servo next to the engine, but I think it just needs some air running over it some how.

Check your receiver, that channel may be faulty.

Believe me, it's not a heat problem. The kit had some servo spacers which I had used on steering servo to raise it off servo plate. It's shown in the manual. I put 3pm locknuts with 15 mm bolts which raised servo about 4pm, cut the bottom off rx box now servo is up into box with rx sitting on it.haven't had a problem since in this Texas heat.
