Are there any major differences between the high dynamic and reverse clutches?
As far as I can see the only difference is the pressure plate, flywheel and the way the fly weights are installed.
I have 2 high dynamic but no reverse and hear the reverse is much better, if all I need is the flywheel and pressure plate it would make things a lot cheaper since I have plenty of extra yellow and red shoes

i have the old clutch and a reverse, and various other brands clutches.
No apparent better clutch between them all, just set them up right.

All of the people I saw run the car long in the back had the front of the car short.
I tried this without the front short and it made the rear PLANTED. couldn`t get the car to turn the way it was. Still going to try higher rc in the rear to see what it brings since i have the 2009 car still. Maybe try the front short.
What benefits did you get with this mod. godzikop

Everyone that I know that tried this always had the front short. For me the car was just easier to drive and rolled thru the corners better.

What's up? I recently noticed when I have my front wheels turned to the left there's something rubbing. There's no engine installed, car is in roller form. When I turn right it doesn't do it, I took off the side belt, turn left and when the tire gets about 1/2 of the full way around I feel a rub slowing it down and can't figure out where its from.
I changed every pulley, belt, front and rear arms, front and rear knuckles, every bearing to brand new ones (not just cleaned and put back in) and still can't figure it out.
It doesn't do it when I have the radio is on and turned left since my EPA will never need to go full lock, but it just bothers me and like my stuff 100%.
Any suggestions will be appreciated, anything I forgot to check? Regionals are tomorrow (9/28) and want it 100%.
Thanks in advance

I reckon one of two things:

1. Your axle could be binding. Check it has enough sideway clearance, an it doesn't bind around the joint or

2. The actual rim could be rubbing or binding (I got this with certain tire brands),
