hey guys i ran my super this weekend and it was quite impressed. Changes i made were

- 1 degree camber all around
- i am using the proline super foams (wide in the back and narrow front)
- 5mm ride height in the back and 3mm in the front.
- 0 toe in the front

i still get a bit of over steer around the corners but they are alot more controllable and no spinouts going full throttle with a .21 in a straight. only thing is that my chassis is going to get eaten pretty quick riding that low. i'll experiment lifting the front a little. very impressed so far, wasnt lagging too much behind an impact. i think i will try the diff spring kit next.

Default Centax Clutches on Super's

Guy;

Several major concerns to consider:

1) The Flywheel needs to be the correct diameter and match the Motor Mounts for starter box access.

2) The Engine/Gear spacing needs to match the HPI Spur Gears and this may require different Motor Mounts.

Cool, glad those changes worked for you. The Super doesn't do well with a lot of camber.

I didn't get to finish my race as soon as the race started there was a pile up I tried to work my way through it but got tee boned trying to get around the pile up. My servo arm broke and I probably could have fixed it but decided to bag it. I had the car dialed in it was disappointing.

I would look through the post and use some of the setup's. There is nothing in paticular that you will need to do besides breaking in your engine if it is new. Also get the 7512 BMW V12 LMR body I wouldn't waste my time with anything else. Save your money and use it on other parts.

Default Racing clutch

Hey do you guys have the racing clutch? I bought it yesterday and found that it has a conical shape Is that normal because I don't know how will it grip the bell. Need help!

Which racing clutch did you get? If its the HPI one, it will work fine. Just follow the instructions.

Default HPI racing clutch

Speed De;

Check out HPI and MIP's websites about setting up the clutch (there exactly the same clutch), there should be some information on one of the sites.
The conical shape is to reduce the shoe contact area. The racing clutch grabs better and does not need as much contact with the inside of the clutchbell to work.
I usually run mine in the middle hole, but some slight trimming is nesessary and you should have the instructions in front of you before cutting.

Should the shoes be joined together when they are put on the flywheel or they need to be broken apart???

Default Racing Clutch

The first time you need to install the shoes seperately, then hook the spring together. After that you can remove the hole Clutch (shoes/spring) as a unit without disassembling it.

Anyone going to the June 1 race at Camden? This will be my first time racing there. Do they change the track layout everytime?
