good stuff
one thing that ask my attention is the way he shim. Reading Josh Cyrul methods its very different, first he make gap without inner bearing then he goes to endplay setting to avoid bell to touch shoe and freely spin. Mike first shim behind inner bearing then thrust bearing

So how did everyone enjoy the article?
Did it help to get the clutch set just right?
Has it helped with laptimes and overall drivability?
Lets hear some feedback on how it's helped with the "Black Art" of clutch setup!

Maybe I missed something, but I miss 1 important figure, the "gap"....
Is it random with a mugen clutch?

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO KNOW THEN?????????????????????????????????????????
Step 10
Mike suggest's using an additional thrust bearing washer for spacing the clutch bell away from the shoe. This reduces the number of washers that can be lost when taking it apart. Shimming at this point is critical. YOU WANT TO SHIM THE CLUTCH BELL AWAY FROM THE SHOE JUST ENOUGH SO IT DOESN'T RUB WHEN PRESSURE IS APPLIED INWARDS Use small shims to do this
