Use the rear pivot. The same one you use to adjust track width!!

hi paolo, dj and gianni,

How often do you guys change clutch-shoe(red)?, do guys change every qualifying? and a new one for the mains, or you keep it there as long as its working? One more thing, do guys use part no. 1388 for the thrust bearing with 6 ceramic balls or the the one with 10 balls? Is there any difference?
TY in advance

I use the shoe as long as it is good. For multiple races( I can use a shoe for about 2 hours or more). I just clean it with a very fine sand paper(300). As for the thrust bearing they both are good. I do not care which one I use. I have never had a thrust bearing problem. As long as the clutch is good, then they last.

It really depends on what type of track you are running. If the trrack has no grip at all you can even run lower than the base setting. However, if you are running on a high grip track, then you can may try even tighter. You have to feel the car by holding it down and applying throtle on it. it should then feel very hard to drive when you are racing. Or else you timng will be off.

No, The key is not to over tighten them when they are new.

I suggest stay the same on the pinions but switch to 56 on your 2nd gear spur. 17/23, 61/56.
