There has been threads about this car few pages back. As awesome as it looks, it does cost a lot more than any of the other 8th circuit cars on the market and part support is an issue. I'm sure if they were more abundant we'd seen them on the tracks here in the USA.

I didn't even look at the price yet. I'm sure there will be more of them showing up this season anyway. The little that I have learned in my first year of this, it seems like many of the nitro on roaders don't care about price!! Makes me wonder why in the heck I didn't stick with electric!

I would expect to see some of the top drivers pick up rides from them and put them in some big A Mains this season.

Smac - Electric can cost as much or more than nitro depending on a lot of variables.

What happened with the clutch?
If the clutch was always ""engaged" you can try the following:

1. Insert a grub screw M4x4 in the central hole of each rear shoe.
2. Keep a distance 0,5-0,6 mm between front shoe and bell, to be added to a final clearance 0.1mm on the axial bearing.

If you are still not satisfied, the second solution is to cut a front shoe in three parts and fix each part BETWEEN the pins of the flywheel. In this case, lighten each portion of shoe making a hole.

I hope this helps!

We are gonna have one racing at our track this weekend for the R/C Pro Series race. I can't wait to see it.

The shocks look like Mugen's. The throttle/brake linkage is cool looking...lower c.g.!

HarKonnenD- As far as the money it takes to run gas...I agree with you, but the problem is that I still have all of my electric stuff to race and now I have added this stuff!!

from the sound of the engine my 1st guess the clutch is not properly set/built
