Thanks
i would think at least 50000 oil is needed...
personally i'll try 80000.

I am sponsored by XS that provides IDM to me and I haven't really been through the trouble because it's the same clutch with various shoes/springs. I may have to order one with all this talk though but I'm sure his stuff is more concentrated to long ribbon tracks and probably 8th scale.

Just like Twister is better than ATS to me because I have the privilege to run their tires even though it's the same rubber, same process, same wheel just shipped to america in a different box.

I've run Mugen, Kyosho and TM and on the car I have now I'm running 100000 in my front diff and it gives me great pull almost like a lock diff but without beating up the diff cups and dogbones. My advise is experiment a bit and find what works for the track or tracks you run on.

Default Clutches

If you know how to set a clutch nomatter who makes it,or who you are sponsored by. Im shore it will come down to tuning an how you, yourself what you want your clutch to perform so lets not start a clutch battle.Battles belong on the track.

Correct, which is why I recommended the 2d kyosho clutch that the evo 2 will be coming with. I like the Sirio don't get me wrong, but you have to know spring compression, gap and end play extremely well before you can even bother switching to any clutch for more performance.

The sirio clutch is the main reason why I do poorly in the early qualifiers at night at one of our local tracks, the track is just insanely slippery and I would rather just wait until the main when the traction comes up and take home the win and let someone else have tq or else I would have to make adjustments every run and who wants that for club racing.

The capricorn is not the same as the sirio the concept is the same.
The capricorn Clutch disk,shoe,Bell are smaller
Im not pushing the envelope on the Sirio because of any sponsorship just based off of experience of using it. If anyone had the choice to go with the 2d or Sirio they are equal in performance so any choice won't be wrong
I ran the 3d then 2d then Capricorn then sirio at times I will use the 2D in practice but in Qualifying I use the Sirio on my Qualifying motor & mains
