Go softer on the clutch and lighter on the front diff oil. Such a heavy oil pulls the front like crazy on power.

Try something like 100 front and 60 rear to start and tune from there.

Couldn't apply the throttle leaving the corner all day.

I'm going to try the rear on my setup and see how I like them. I can't say "where" I will use them so I"m going to do some testing. Not sure I'll use the front because I don't currently use any springs in that range.

Default conical spring washers

Is anyone using the conical spring washers in the High dynamic clutch ?

i set mine up as per the booklet with the 5 x big washers in first then followed by the 5 thin washers and setting the adj nut to 1mm. i started with a .6 gap and the clutch was slipping pretty bad.

what are peoples thoughts on the washers and what setup are you using?

i've never tried it myself but others have and said you shouldn't run any gap.

I'm running .5 gap and about the same .5 on the adjusting nut. Lots of punch out of turns. Start at about .4-.5 on the nut and tighten if needed.

I am running .6 gap and .7 nut with all the washers on the HD Clutch with a yellow shoe and I am a big fan. I find the response is much quicker, similar to an EP feel.

Are you running it with the flat flywheel or the HD flywheel?

I'm not sure if this applies. I ran the conical washers in a Serpent clutch (sedan) with a red shoe which is a softer shoe and it was beautiful. I would run a small gap maybe .3mm -.5mm. I would believe the conical washers do not have as much throw as a spring setup.


Pass you soon...
