I want to say you need a hobby but instead I'll say this is what happens when you're fast. you have too much time on your hands.

thanks for info. i did pick up a nova 2652 for the motors.it was the recomended pipe thanks again

This is a rookie question, but I am not a rookie, but new to the Xray NT1 2009 vehicle. I am having difficulty getting the clutch set up properly. The diagram in the manual is very understandable, but I can not seem to achieve any clutchbell endplay whatsoever. I know XRAY is known for their attention to detail, but is it possible my clutchbell is machined improperly not allowing the bearings to not be in the proper position? I feel that the problem is something I am doing wrong, but have been unsucessful at figuring it out. My maiden voyage with my first new nitro touring car's race date is getting close (Pete Johnson Memorial at Blue Diamond in Delaware), hope to have it figured out by that time.

Actually, this is all your fault Dorian, you shoulda stayed in our area so I would have a local XRAY rep who could help me with this problem

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Check your rear shocks and make sure they still feel good. if thats not the issue you can try thicker rear shock oil, or possibly going down a hole on the clickers. If your car is bouncing though definitely re check those shocks

With just the bearings installed and no shims does you clutch have play? and did you put shims behind the fly wheel collet? Pics would be helpful...

Hi,
The clutch is the standard and not the high dynamic, correct?
Have you achieved the 9.2mm distance from the nut to the end of the crankshaft as it is specified in the manual?
How much gap have you set? And then the clutch bell touches the shoe?

Just a thought. Is it possible that the end of the crankshaft has been shortened?
