EXACTLY !! Just because mugen has new gears, it doesn't mean that striping gears will go away. You still have to check EVERYTHING regardless of what car you drive. I've seen NT1's, V-One-RRR's, 720's, and G4's all strip gears because of improper preparation. Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Hey Marcos,

this clutch is co-development between IDM and Capricorn.

Daniele is giving them the technical input and Capricorn have the production capability.

I got mine from Daniele directly

Default gear

Back to the gear stripping, if you use a 4mm chassis the strippong problem will it improve?

I'm at .4mm end play in clutch. I just added a thrust bearing washer (the one with the smaller ID) before the two bearings near the spring lock nut . Maybe this will help. I saw that some people were doing this.
