A few companies make the clutch tool, but the one from www.ybslowinc.com is the nicest. They acutally make quite a few nice tools and upgrade parts.

yes ybslow makes some nice stuff
and just run the clutch stock for now till you get a handle on it and know what you think you need to do to tune your clutch.
most run the super hard spring (with kit) but with a yellow shoe.
do what Swauger said and you cant go wrong.
mugen also makes a clutch tool too.
and there drivers are really nice though they may cost a bit,there tips are great.

titanium turnbuckles, no need to buy the rear upper one, the original one is more easy to adjust. I run the whole car for more than 2 years, almost everything was original except the steel pulleys and front upper metal C-mount by Kawahara. Once you tried this car, you will love it.

Thanks a bunch for the tips, guys. Ashford Hobby had everything I needed, and really good prices, too. I can't wait to get my hands into this build, for sure.

For M Mod - The Border is a good place to purchase. It's not in the US but if you really want the parts, it'll get to you.

Definetly go with a reamer - www.reamer.com - EDP #00171 works fine.

Ok, I guess that's a definitive NO. Guess I won't get my hopes up on that one.



I have a set of GQ wheels along with a set of GRPs and they BOTH fit very tight on the drive axles. Is this normal? Would it help to get a 12mm reamer and hand ream the wheels for a smoother fit? At this point, they are anything but QR.

Ive seen Harry ream Swauger's wheels out and then coat the inside with a quick rub of grease for smooth pit stops

Found one at J&L Industrial Supply for $15. I'm just happy to know that it wasn't just me who found the wheels way too tight. A 11.93mm I.D. on a 12mm axle is just plain dumb. That's a lot of material to remove!

Glad I asked...



Thanks again, guys.

I got my reemer from a local tool supply house. Nothing special(cheapest one they had), but it has a lead end tapper to center its self by hand. Think it was around ten bucks.

Odd how RCtech has gone back to making posts before ones that had already been there before.
