TomB,

Which shoe are you using? The yellow one works the best and does get a dark line on it, but it isn't a problem.

From my own experience...

Set the air gap (between shoe and bell) between 0.6 and 0.7mm. Anything more will warp the weights and they may break and wedge in between the shoe and bell. Anything less causes the clutch to engage too quickly at times. Set the end play between 0.05mm and 0.15mm. The XRAY weights work great with this setup.

Make sure the clutch spring you're using doesn't fit too tightly over the flywheel nut threads. I prefer the JP hard spring myself and I tighten the spring nut down 1.2mm to 1.5mm past the end of the flywheel nut, depending on track grip. The 1.5mm setting gives a lot of snap and hard acceleration.

BTW, luv the xray vision comment!!!

ok cook, yeah i have my spring 1.5mm tightened down, it's a older crf spring and i've noticed it has lost it's "hardness" but this shouldn't be too much of an issue.

also i think i am running about .7mm clutch gap, i'm not sure though, i'll check to make sure. Also, running .1mm end play...now that i think of it i think the mugen thrust might fix it...who knows though. yep i'm running the yellow show.

the only thing is i am not setting the clutch up the xray manual way, i'm doing it the mugen way as i find the xray method tricky, and a bit complicated. i set the clutch gap with the internal bearing installed, and set clutch gap by adding shims as needed, then i do endplay once the internal settings are done, i find this way alot easier....this could also be a reason for the issues though admitedly

This probably is the reason, as the large bearing has to be removed in order to accurately measure the gap between the shoe and the bell. You probably have more gap than you think.

An old clutch spring that isn't as hard will make a big difference as well.

The Mugen Belts will not fit... The rear belt will fit, but does not roll as free. I had to use this once when I didn't have an option for a rear belt.

John, stop trying to save coin man, just get the official parts dude. the xray belts are really good. twoggy told me they are releasing rubber ones soon, but the kit ones are very good.

Along with the kevlar belts, new lightweight 2speed shaft, Lightweight middle shaft, 2 speed springs, clutch spring, .7mm front blades, and rear blades, 3.0mm roll center bridge, and 1 degree front knuckles have been released. Some have already been mentioned, but just a reminder incase anyone missed the new Xray upgrades. I think that's all of them...

They'll give you more mid-corner steering, which is good for tracks especially like Fort Meyers

I've been running them for 2 weeks now and D-nicest is correct. You get more steering angle on the outside front wheel. With the spool up front it gave me more steering from the middle of the corner out, which is a very good thing.
