Is anyone using different pins to hold the clutch shoes onto the flywheel? The pins are soft and the heads get stripped out easily. Im tired of buying the whole clutch spring and hardware set #TKR 5353 just to get the pins. The Losi ones are a little different so Im not sure if they will work.

Hey Guys,

Was taking apart my truck today to clean it and noticed that the teeth on the clutch bell were really pointy with some burrs on the sides of the teeth. Is this normal? The spur gear looks really good with no wear or signs of wear. Should I replace the clutch bell with my spare or keep running it? Also, what is the general consensus on the Proline Enforcer for the truck?

If you are having problems stripping out the pin heads, I would just change to a different clutch setup. I really like the M2C 2-shoe aluminum clutches. Work really well and hook up well. Plus you can add weight to the flywheel to tame the motor if you are running in really low grip situations to reduce tire spin.

I ran into this problem a couple of times - initially when I used loctite (didn't know better at the time) and when I had both clutch bearings go out on me (brand new Tekno bearings). I switched to TKO bearings and no loctite and haven't had a problem since. I do wish they would separate some of that hardware. I have 3 or 4 flywheel nuts that I will probably never use.

I've used the Losi pins with no problems.

Thanks for the advise bros. The stock clutch is ok for me, just the pin issue pissed me off. I emailed Tekno and they said theres no plans to offer the pins separately.

What would cause me to have more steering one way than the other when the servo arm moves the same amount in each direction when not moving... If that makes sense. I have more steering when turning to the right than to the left. turnbuckles are the same length on each side as well as same amount of throw from side to side on servo horn

I have worn out several cb on this truck. I replace them when they get pointed and start to make bad sounds.
The proline enforcer holds up great, but also blocks a lot of airflow over the motor. My motors were running 20-30 degrees hotter with that body.
Hope this helps.

I think it has to do with the steering geometry. I have always had to set a little larger endpoint on one side.

Exclamation

Check the steering linkage between the servo horn and servo saver.
Shorten or lengthen it until the throw left and right are the same.
This assuming that the turnbuckle length left and right are the same

Everything looks good in that aspect. Turnbuckle lengths are the same and servo has same throw from left to right. They turn the same on box but when racing the turn in is better to the right than to the left, Another question as well on sway bars. The collars that lock the sway bar down close to the gearbox.... How much room are usupposed to leave between the collar and gearbox/ I have about a mm gap between them on both sides. I generally dont lock the sway bar down with set screws but it seems like these collars lock the sway bar down

The stock pins work just fine as long as you don't over tighten them. They only need to be slightly snug. No need to crank them down.

On the sway bars, I tighten the screws (one at a time) until the sway bar starts to bind. Then I back the screw off until the sway bar turns freely. From my understanding, the idea is for the sway bar to turn freely, but without excessive play.

On the steering thing, I would start by sitting the car on the ground and see if you are getting equal throw. I usually sit it on the ground and increase my endpoints til it hits the stops then back the endpoints off a lil.
