I guess he expect to have more chassis flexes by doing that.

I've made a bracket so it fits between the tank and the exhaust. The xceed version fit's perfectly. Later today i will post some pictures, i'm currently at school.

For the diff oil, i always use 80k in the front and 40k in the rear. Only when i run on a really tight track i switch to a solid in the front and 30k in the rear.

Hi,

The last few weekends I'm having some problems with the fly weigths of the clutch.

After some runs the weigth holes are turning oval or there is even a crack at het side.

Clutch setting seems normal:

Clutch gap is 0.6 mm
Xray hard spring at 1.4 mm

How can I get this solved, every weekend new weights is expensive too.

Thanks

Measure the thickness of the pins from your flywheel, maybe they are worn out which causes play and so the flyweights will wear out faster.

Your clutch setting could be a little too aggresive which is okay. You can lessen up the clutch gap so that the weights dont take as long to engage. I personally cut the weights by the hole, which lightens up the clutch. When cutting the weights u won't have an issue with the holes breaking cause there won't be any, but you'll have to probably go farther down on the spring. You should see an improvement in perforamance when cutting them though.
