Claudio, this is my clutch setup from this past weekend at the Byron Race:

Thin shim installed over crankshaft first, followed by collet and stock flywheel. Tighten down with stock nut.
Install 2 set screws in each Motonica yellow flyweights and install the weights on the pins in the normal way.
Place the stock backplate over the weights, followed by the Motonica yellow shoe. Make sure the plate and shoe slide on the pins freely.
Place the spring cup in the shoe. Install spring (I used the stock Evolva spring) and tighten the stock nut. My setting with the Evolva spring was about 9.3mm from the tip of the crankshaft to the top of the nut.
Place an old thrust bearing washer over the crankshaft and if need be one or two thin clutch washers...enough so that the clutchbell does not rub the shoe. Install the bell with both bearings, followed by the thrust bearing assembly and tighten. The end play should be about 0.4mm to 0.7mm at this point. Install clutch shims so the play is about 0.4mm. Recheck after a tank or two of running.

( or will be faulty soon) Garen said to me, that some one-way bearings on some batch are not top quality bearings? Can you read any words on your old bearing?

It was stuck to the shaft. The text on the bearing says "HF 0812" and there is an arrow symbol. I sanded the shaft and put a new bearing on and the shaft seems fine now.

I also ran in my novarossi 359 engine last weekend and its much faster than the practise engine that came with it. I also stripped my rear belt should i readjust the rear belt tension?

You can adjust the rear belt tension with the optional rear tensioner. However, check both the rear and brake pulleys for wear and clean or replace them as needed before installing a new belt.

To all motonica drivers . I recomend to test the gio-racing clutch .

Its awsome . The lightest clutch I ever seen . The performance is incredible . We tested it and we found no better clutch than this one . And it isnt expensive at all .

racen4 - I've been using one of the 800mah lipo packs and it fits/works great. I've had 2 or 3 different ones and all shapes/sizes fit just fine and run at least 1:30 on a charge.

Cemos - Where do you go to get one??

For anyone attending the GLC with their Motonica P8.0R - I recomend the set-up that I ran at the Byron's Challenge. I've run at Toledo the past 2 weekends with no changes to the set-up at all and the car has been great. Check the Motonica USA site as Garen has it posted there.

Also, Parma has a new R12 body (cockpit style) that is extremely good. I will also be running this at the GLC.

Josh, I think Scotty has run or still runs this clutch. I already contacted the guy, waiting for his reply.

"Ssshhh - don't tell everyone. Its like there is nothing on the crank at all. Unfortunately they only fit Motonica." - Why is this unfortunate? ;-)

Good luck to all the Motonica drivers at the GLC, here's the link to the setup:

There was some dirt stuck between some tooth on the pulleys probably missed it when cleaning the car. Cleaned it and put a new belt on and the car went well last clubrace and the belt seems fine. I even improved my personal best qualifying result with 2 laps.
So i made the car ready for the final. The start of the final went very well for me but after a couple of laps there was a strange "plopping" sound coming from the exhaust and after that the car didn't respond well. So back in the pit there was smoke coming of the exhaust and the engine was really hot. When i checked the plug the element was broken so i expected it went through the engine.
But when i opened the engine the piston and cylinder seemed fine there where no scratches on it, it was just the compression that was gone. When checking the exhaust there where some rubbers damaged so i guess that might have something to do with it. Does anyone have any idea what could have caused this? the exhaust rubbers where new and the engine (Novarossi NS21P) performed good during the qualifiers.
I liked the NS21P as it performed well in the races that i used it. As i have a race next week i bought a novarossi 35 plus21 to replace this engine and it would be good to know what went wrong so it wont happen again.

Randy - Nope, no regulator!!! It's not recommended but a little birdy told me all the KO gear is tested at much higher voltage so it's safe to use. Not sure about the other mfg's though.

Garen - Find out more!

Ice_nl - It's hard to say without looking at the engine in person. Possibly just finally wore out if the engine was old/used a lot. With the exaust rubbers, make sure to put your pipe/header together and attach it to the engine. Then fit/adjust the pipe wire only to hold it in place - not to pull or stretch the pipe/header into a different position.

Brian - lol.. I'll be there. Actually, I might go down this Sunday (I know there's no club race) just to run around breaking in engines for the GLC and WC.

Hi guys, I have a P8.0, no zero about these cars but they look impressive. The car seems to be constructed to have a low CG and looks like it has been designed from scratch as its like nothing I have seen. I run a 2005WC, and MRX4R so hence the coment on it being original. Can someone point me to a site on clutch setups and most importantly............spares. Would appreciate any help.

Hope it runs as good as it looks :-)

All the best!!
