My OSTZ came with a collet when I bought it. The collet is needed to install the flywheel properly to the engine.

Wow, they don't come with collets in the US. Collets are usually specific to the flywheel/kit. They would have to come with an assortment.

Mine came with. Right now, I have 3 extra collets lying around. When i got my OSTZ 5ports, it came with one but I decided to use the collet that came with my V1RRR WCTE kit. When I bought my OSSpeed TZ 3 ports, it also came with one. I decided to use this collet when I attached this engine to my V1RRR EVO kit. Now, I have another spare of collet. And when I bought my Nova Plus 12-3 SCT, this engine also came with a collet. Now I have 3 spare collets

Use the collet that came with your chassis. Because it will fit the flywheel better and will setup the clutch easier , some wont fit your motor though so thats when you use the included collet.
