Default Mike Swauger's article on setting up a Centax clutch

In case you guys didn't see it, Mike Swauger has a really awesome article in Xtreme RC Cars on how to setup a Centax clutch. Although he is using a Mugen clutch in the article, many of the tips are applicable to any Centax setup.

It's not online yet, as the issue just came out on the news stands. Should be posted in a few months, possibly sooner. www.rc411.com

Will will own a Mugen the day after Kyosho declares bankruptcy.

You'd never be able to convert Will, even if you gave him an MRX-4R, MTX-4 Prospec and a set of blue shirts for free.

Will? Will? Are you okay? Wake up! Stop day dreaming bro - cause it ain't happening.

Go get'em Will! Kyo-show them what you got!!!

Seriously bro, I think you Will have a great time at the WinterNats. Make sure you get a group photo with each of the Teams. Especially Team XRAY I'll put up a special page at NitroKB with all the photos - "The SOLOARTIST at WinterNats"

Making jokes about Will getting an 1/8th scale is not funny at all...

He is doing just fine with his K-car and now I can bum parts from him
Have fun in Florida.
