Doki if you can please answer the ? that I asked 3 or 4 pages ago what is the the weight on your car because after all hop ups you must be way over weight now. my take on a couple of hops ups for the rrr is not necessary I been running the rrr for 2 seasons & i did the same thing put this & that on & guess what I was way over weight now I am running the RRR EVO WCE bone stock & the only hop up is the 3 racing oneway/lock I have never broken a front or shock so I don't see a need for thicker one lucky i guess (knock on wood) the kyosho stock one is high quality

You can feel the point where the clutch engages a lot better with the 2d clutch, this allows you to be smoother and not have to blip the throttle out of every turn .

HTH!

very nice too know..Thx

it all really makes sense!

from memory the red clutch shoe is more aggressive than the stock shoe.
less slip = less friction therefore less heat and more consistent clutch engagement. the downside might be that the red shoe wears out faster because it is a softer material.
now, the more weights you have in your clutch the more pressure is applied to the clutch shoe when the clutch is engaged right? well because the 2d clutch system uses the agressive shoe, they took out one of the weights which helps the engine spool up quicker due to less rotating mass.
this could also be why the clutch is sensitive/critical to changes.

the lighter flywheel means engine can spool up quicker which also gives faster acceleration.

ok i never want to see the word clutch again!

actually, i haven't weighed the car after putting all the hop-ups don't have an accurate weighing scale just an analog one that is used to measure one's body weight. will this weighing scale be good enough? what's the weight of your car box stock? will base it from there is my kit is overweight

No, that scale will not do. It is not very accurate.

Well...

Is there a post office nearby? You could try a postal scale. Be sure to ask them how accurate it is.

Hmm...I will try that. As of the moment, I'll try to use the smaller weighing scale that my neighbor has. She uses this scale to measure when baking or cooking. Would this be any good?

On a U.S. Postal Scale (yeah, I know), without the body or fuel...

WCE #1: 3lbs. 11.8oz = 1,695.52g

WCE #2: 3lbs. 11.5oz = 1,687.02g
