I have both aluminum and steel pinions. Practice and run club races with steel and for races that are more important, I run the aluminum.

Also, I use them for tuning a small bit. I have gone back to the steel pinions with the IDM engines to try and calm them down a bit.

Kyosho makes the steel pinions. I don't know where you live, but whatever dealer you get your Kyosho parts from can get you the steel pinions.

That's what I thought, but I'm having a hard time finding a part number for it. Can you give any advice where to find the part number? Thanks.

It comes with all the other plastic pulleys. If you bought your kit brand new, I am almost sure it came with the kit. Keep in mind that if you convert to the plastic pulley, you will need two more of the 2x11 pins. One to drive the pulley, and one to drive the brake cam (which you will need as well).

The easiest way to picture all this is go to the Kyosho America website and download the manual for the RRR WC edition (not the EVO WC). It uses the older pulley and brake cam. It will show you how it goes together and the back of the manual will show the exploded view as well as the parts listing.

Pulley set VZ203.

Aaaaaaa, OK, That's what I used to run, but I switched to the EVO system when my brake cam wore out.

Hello looking for some clutch setup advice. I recently switched from the mugen to the Kyosho car. Very happy with the switch. Looking to get gapping, spring recommendations etc. I run on a mid size track with medium traction and some fairly tight corners. Also what is the feedback on the new clutch system aftermarket.

Thanks for you help,

Brad

Thanks for you help,

the current 3D clutch is perfect then you have the 2D/4D by Kyosho & also the Sirio power clutch I would stay away from aftermarket clutches since the one's I listed are the way to go
most common gap ranges 5-6
med traction .60-1.2 spring tension kyosho hard spring or orion spring
barely any endplay

Could someone post or direct me to a gear ratio setup sheet? I'm looking for something that gives me the combination of the spur and pinion and what ratio it gives me. Thanks.
